About Recipe

So I know you’re probably here because you’re wondering what kind of cake is made with sweet potato and chocolate pudding… right? Well, I’ll tell you — a perfectly scrumptious gluten-free vegan sweet potato cake with chocolate pudding frosting to enjoy on a cozy autumn night in! I’m not sure why, but I just knew that my pudding would taste delicious as a frosting on this cake, and it is :) — it’s all soft and gooey in all the right ways, and it absorbs into cake in the center quite nicely if you layer your cake. The sweet potato and spices make the cake taste like fall. And don’t worry, nobody will know there’s any vegetable hiding in it, I promise ;) . No one has ever guessed the secret ingredient amongst the friends and family I’ve shared it with, and everyone has been completely surprised to find it’s sweet potato and just how much of it is in there! I’d say that’s a definite pass on that front ;) .
