Chocolate Coconut Cake

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

I got this recipe from fellow Medifaster, Stephen Santay, and it was delicious so I wanted to share it with you! I am really not a fan of the oatmeals, nor do I care for the muffins made from them because they usually have a rubbery texture every time I make them. I have to admit that these cakes did not taste rubbery at all. They were crispy around the edges and moist on the inside. I ate one for the day and I stored the other two in a Ziploc baggie on the counter. The second and third one, I put in the toaster and they toasted up really nicely. I am not sure if your toaster will fit these cakes, but my toaster all toasts bagels so it fit nicely. I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I have!


Chocolate Coconut Cake
Recipe from Stephen Santay
Ingredients:
2 maple and brown sugar oatmeals (2 Meals)
1 chocolate  pudding (1 Meal)
1 tbsp oil (3 Healthy Fats)
2 tbsp egg beaters (per NS you are allowed up to 2 oz of additional protein a day on occasion so I didn't count it)
1 tsp baking powder (2 Condiments)
1 tsp coconut extract (1 Condiment)
 3/4 to 1 cup water
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a dish with Pam cooking spray (I used 3 brownie trays that I sprayed lightly with Pam). Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix until blended. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for  22 minutes. Make sure your cake is set by using a toothpick to test the center of the cake. If it comes out clean, then it is done. Flip cake onto a baking sheet (I lined the baking sheet with parchment paper). Bake other side for 10 mins or until edges are crispy and brown. You could make cream cheese frosting by mixing 3 tbsp of regular cream cheese and 1 packet of splenda for a total of 2 Healthy Fats and 1.33 Condiments per serving. Or you could you 3 tbsp reduced fat cream cheese with 1 packet of splenda for 1 Healthy Fat and 1.66 Condiments per serving. I just sprinkled 1 packet of splenda over the top of the cakes for a total of 1 Healthy Fat and 1.33 Condiments per serving. You could also experiment with Walden Farms Chocolate or Caramel Syrup! Enjoy!
3 Servings with 1 Meal, 1 Condiment and 1 Healthy Fat per serving (without any toppings)
