Ingredients

Cake:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup nonfat vanilla greek yogurt I use Dannon
  • 1 cup Almond Breeze Almond Milk Original Unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar

Frosting:

  • 1 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup Blue Diamond Unsweetened Almond Milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line the bottom of a 10x15 sheet cake pan (cake roll pan) with parchment paper, then spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Whisk both flours, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk greek yogurt, almond milk, applesauce, vinegar, and vanilla in a measuring cup. Stir wet ingredients into dry and stir until just blended and smooth.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 13-16 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean 2” from the edge of the pan. The cake will somewhat spring back when touched.
  • As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, make the frosting. Place the chocolate chips and almond milk in a medium bowl. Heat in the microwave on high power in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until melted and smooth (about 1 1/2 minutes, depending on your microwave). Spread evenly over the top of the cake. It’ll be a thin layer, but it’ll cover!
  • Cool completely before serving. Store loosely covered on counter or in refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Serving suggestion: Slice the cake and pipe white laces onto each piece to look like footballs. Use white chocolate chips (melted) or canned white icing for this step, if desired.
