Low Fat Chocolate Cake with Peanut Flour Frosting

Posted Jan 16 2011 8:06pm

This weekend has been busy with my cousin moving to Columbus! My aunt and uncle came down to move her in this weekend and we had a great time hanging out! I’ll fill you in more, but until then I wanted to share this tasty treat!

John and Ashley came over for dinner this week to celebrate Ashley’s bday! I made salmon, quinoa, broccoli and salad for dinner. For dessert, I wanted to make something fun and not too bad for us! That is how I came up with this:

I made a chocolate cake with a can of pumpkin in place of oil and eggs. Then I topped it with a peanut flour frosting recipe that I created as I went.

We devoured it. It turned out moist (a little goey i the middle) and delicious!

  • 1 chocolate cake mix
  • 1 can of pumpkin
  • 1 1/4 c. water
  • 1 c. peanut flour
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 1/3 c, water (depending on how thick you want it – add more to reach your consistency)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • peanuts to top
  1. Make the cake by mixing the cake mix with can of pumpkin and water.
  2. Place in a sprayed, round cake pan and bake at 350 for about 20-30 min. depending on the size of your pan.
  3. While the cake is baking, make the frosting. Mix the peanut flour, water, sugar and salt together until you have the consistency you like!
  4. When the cake is done (mine was really gooey in the middle but it’s ok because it has no eggs!) let it cool.
  5. Then top it with the frosting and enjoy!

Anna wished she got a piece, but not yet!
