Lush Sweet Potato Chocolate Cake

Lush Sweet Potato Chocolate Cake

Watch out, chocolate bomb coming in! I had two sweet potatoes sitting in my kitchen, which I had to turn into something. I was thinking of something sweet…

If you like sweet potatoes, you’ll love this chocolate cake. If you do not like them at all, you should keep away from this cake, because you’ll definitely taste the sweet potatoes here!

Don’t be cheap on the maple syrup in the frosting. You’ll need some to make it sweet and delicious!

Have fun baking your cake and enjoy it!

      Liebe Maria,
      vielen Dank! 🙂
      Da ich nicht unter Zöliakie leide, ernähre ich mich nicht glutenfrei und habe auch keine Erfahrung damit. Probiere doch mal statt des Mehls eine glutenfreie Mehlmischung.
      Liebe Grüße
