2. Spinach Cake Recipe

This is a Turkish cake Ispanakli Kek – Spinach Cake that I came across a few years ago.  You cannot tell it’s spinach, so don’t tell your guests or kids the secret ingredient until after they eat it…they will be amazed! Sometimes the green is richer and darker in color and sometimes it is lighter, it does not affect the taste of the cake, it’s just the type of spinach I guess.

This super light, fluffy, and moist Healthy Gluten Free Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting is incredibly sweet and just plain addictive!  I’ve never tasted a healthified cake as good as this before in my life…  words cannot even BEGIN to describe this cake.  I wish I could just hand you a slice right now through the screen so you could taste it for yourself, but uh, technology hasn’t caught up with that yet.  But seriously though, you really need this in your life.  ASAP.

Where do I begin? I think I just went to chocolate heaven after eating one slice of this delicious chocolate zucchini cake.

Chocolate cakes have a bad reputation because normally they contain tons of sugar, eggs, and butter but not this one.

14. Miracle Skinny Chocolate Cake

I had some ripe bananas sitting on the counter and wanted to try something a little different than your run-of-the-mill banana bread. A quick check in the cupboards and I found that I had all the necessary ingredients to throw together some sort of a chocolate cake. I didn’t have the highest expectations, but then I tasted the batter and knew I was on to something. After a quick bake in the oven, and I was greeted by a fluffy, perfect chocolate cake that almost looked too good to be a healthier recipe.
