chocolate cherry cream cakes



These are little chocolate cakes filled with coconut whipped cream, cherries and chocolate ganache (also known as black forest cake!), and they are so delicious!

I wanted to make a treat that was a little more nutritious, so I used spelt flour and coconut sugar to replace the regular flour and cane sugar. And the coconut whipped cream is a great alternative to making a sugary frosting.
You’ll need:
  • A recipe for chocolate cake – I usually go with the PPK recipe, but use spelt flour and coconut sugar.
  • Fresh cherries
  • Coconut whipped creamthis post from Oh, Ladycakes will break it down for ya
  • Chocolate Ganache (heat 1/3 cup almond milk, then remove from heat and add 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, and mix until smooth & glossy)
Bake the cakes in cupcake tins, or muffin tins if you want bigger cakes. 
Cut the cakes in half, then spread on a layer of ganache, a layer of halved cherries, then the whipped cream. Add the top half of the cake, then top with more whipped cream, ganache, and a whole cherry. 😀
