Ingredients
2 c. soft white wheat flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder (We use sodium free Hain Featherweight baking powder.)
1 t. baking soda
1/3 c. carob powder (I used medium roasted carob powder.)
1/4 c. coconut oil
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c. applesauce
1/2 c. honey
1 T. vanilla
2 egg whites

Chocolate Frosting:
3 avocados
1/4 c. carob powder (I used medium roasted carob powder)
7 T. honey (1/3 c. plus 2 T.)
4 1/2 t. vanilla
Directions
In a bowl, whisk dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk wet ingredients. Combine both mixtures and beat well with a mixer. Oil a cake pan with coconut oil. Pour in the batter and bake at 325 degrees for about 25 minutes or until done.
For the frosting, blend all ingredients in a food processor or a strong blender until smooth. Frost the top and sides of the cake.

This Chocolate Honey Cake is moist, fluffy, sweet, and delicious. It tastes much better than a chocolate cake made from a box mix. The frosting is so creamy and sweet from the honey that you can't taste the secret avocado ingredient!
