Finally! An oil-free chocolate cake that you can feel good about! This cake is made with cooked sweet potato, non-dairy yogurt and whole wheat flour. It has way less sugar than most cakes, and will satisfy all your birthday cake (or other celebrations) desires without putting you in a sugar/oil/butter coma. Top with Cashew Vanilla Frosting.
-I simply microwaved a sweet potato for about 5 minutes, until it was cooked through. You can also bake a sweet potato whole, and then measure out 3/4 cup. I don't recommend boiling sweet potato chunks, as that may make the cake too watery and it won't turn out right.
-I used a cashew based plain yogurt, but any non-dairy yogurt will work such as soy, almond, coconut or cashew. If you are avoiding extra sugar, try to find an unsweetened variety.
-The chocolate chips are optional, but they add a lot to the cake!
