Healthy-er Dark Chocolate Bundt Cake

When you need cake, but it also needs to be healthy!

Dark Chocolate Bundt

The yummy cake:

1 cup unsalted grass-fed organic butter
1/3 cup cocoa powder (Green & Blacks)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup filtered water
2 cups white or wholegrain spelt flour, plus more for dusting
1-3/4 cups coconut sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 organic eggs
1/2 cup authentic Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

The glossy glaze:

4 ounces/100 grams dark chocolate, finely chopped
1-1/2 tablespoons pure Maple syrup
1/2 cup Oatly! Single cream
1-1/2 tablespoons coconut sugar

Heat oven to 150 C in a fan-assisted oven, 180 C in a regular oven. Butter and flour a Bundt pan and set aside.

Combine butter, cocoa powder, salt and water in a small saucepan and gently heat until melted. Remove from heat and set aside.

Mix together the flour, sugar and baking soda in a large bowl. Add the melted butter mixture slowly and mix or whisk. Add the eggs, one at a time, and whisk/mix until completely blended. Add in the Greek yogurt and vanilla extract. Mix/whisk until smooth.

Pour into the prepared Bundt pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cake cool before inverting onto a rack.

Make the glaze by placing the chocolate and maple syrup into a bowl and set aside. Combine the cream and sugar in a saucepan and heat until very hot and sugar is dissolved. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and whisk until smooth and glossy.

Pour glaze over the cooled cake. Ready to serve. Fabulously healthy-er for every occasion!
