Single Serving Chocolate Birthday Cake

Yes, it’s true! I made my own Birthday Cake! But only because I truly wanted to :). I read and felt so blessed by all of my birthday wishes yesterday. One particular comment left by one of my good friends from Savanna piqued my curiosity. She lightheartedly suggested I make “something yummy” out of “quinoa, spinach and cream cheese.”

So I did just that! And here’s what I came up with:
3 tbsp quinoa, ground into a flour
1tbsp coconut, unswt, shredded
1/4 tsp baking powder
1tbsp cocoa powder, 100% cacao
Dash salt
1egg white
2 tbsp unsweetened coconut milk
1tbsp applesauce
Splash vanilla

Blend all of the ingredients above and pour into a greased ramekin. Microwave (gasp!) for 2 minutes until cake is set. Top with frosting made of:
1tbsp melted chocolate chips mixed with 1tbsp fat free cream cheese and 1tsp powdered sugar.
Don’t worry, I ate it with ‘real’ Breyers Ice Cream 🙂
