Sugar Free Chocolate Cake
It's been over a decade since I ran my one and only half marathon but I still remember it well. And I have a feeling that spending an afternoon with a room full of 5 year olds takes just about the same amount of energy that it took for me to run those 13 miles.🤣 Shout out to all of the Kindergarten teachers out there who have the endurance to keep up with the unbridled enthusiasm of five year olds on a daily basis. I don't know how you do it. After an hour of hanging out with 18 of my favorite Kindergarteners - I'm looking for a napping cot.🥱😅
The best part about having a daughter who teaches Kindergarten is the fact that I get to go in as a guest reader, from time to time. Sure, it's exhausting but it's the best kind of tired. It's a lever of exhaustion only achieved from giving countless hugs and high fives to a group of smiling, giggling and generally silliness Kindergartners. 😆
When I go to visit the Kindergarteners, I always take a book to read, an activity for the kids and most importantly, a snack.😂 On my most recent visit, I read "Froggy Bakes a Cake" to the kids and then we made a batch of homemade play dough. The kids used the play dough to make "cakes" and then we ate cake for snack.🍰 😅
One of the fun parts about serving a snack to a group of 5 year olds is that they're always honest with their opinions. They have no reservations about telling me when I don't add enough sprinkles or I choose the wrong cupcake flavor.🧁 And a 5 grinning year old with frosting smeared all over his face, is the best compliment a baker can receive.
It's always fun to watch the Kindergarteners enjoy their snack because the nature of being a caterer is that I don't normally get to watch people's reactions when they eat my cakes. That's also the reason that I don't get pictures of the inside of every cake that I make. My family is pretty understanding when I cut a slice of cake to photograph but clients don't always appreciate it when I cut their beautiful anniversary cake and take a piece out. 😂🍰
This delicious looking chocolate cake looks just like any other - on the outside AND the inside. (You'll have to take my word for it.😅) The only difference is that this decadent cake can be eaten by diabetics. It's completely sugar free. (Including the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups that adorn the top of this masterpiece.) If you (or someone you know) are unable to eat sugar, but still crave chocolate cake - this recipe is for you. And if you make one for yourself - please take a picture of the inside and send it to me. Thanks. 🤣
