Magic Chocolate Cake & Icing

Recipes adapted and inspired from Sarah Wong for Thermomix

Wow friends and fool your kids with this insanely delicious chocolate cake that is wonderfully moist and seriously indulgent. High in protein, essential fats that enhance metabolism and antioxidants means you can have your cake and eat it…guilt free! The creamy dairy-free icing is decadently indulgent and so easy to make, with just three everyday ingredients. It will be hard to resist eating the icing by the spoonful, but you must to fill the top of the cake! This recipe can also be made into cupcakes but bake for just 20 minutes instead of 30 minutes. This cake was a huge hit at my son’s third birthday with both the children and the parents.
