Nat's Divine Chocolate Cake Recipe

Updated on November 28, 2016

Welcome to another adventure into Nat's Kitchen of Wonders! Food is one of the many pleasures of life and I am not prejudiced to one food or another as each type of food has its own beauty and specialty just like each of us has our own unique purpose in life. In this recipe I have created, it has resulted in a moist rich cake but not too rich though. A little piece goes a long way but I can assure you that this cake is delicious and healthy in its own right if taken in moderation. After all, Dark Chocolate has many health benefits and is very high in antioxidants.

Did you know that my eating a piece of dark chocolate, it will help reduce or minimise the risk of overeating at your next meal. Furthermore, Dark Chocolate is high in Iron and Magnesium and yes it also increase the production of endorphins and our happy chemical known as serotonin.
