Crazy Cake Recipe (Chocolate Chip)

This whole grain Chocolate Chip Crazy Cake may be my new favorite cake.

I haven’t had a regular, store-bought piece of cake in ages, and chances are I may never have it again. Even for a special occasion. However, a clean cake that is truly tasty and not so awfully sweet that it will keep me awake into next week…. that’s a different story.

Clean Eating Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Crazy Cake

While I’m trying to stick to low-carb eating, I’m also testing out some cake recipes for Mini Chef’s upcoming birthday party. I wanted something that was clean, but also something that everyone would enjoy. Not always an easy thing to do when some people are accustomed to store-bought cake.

But I think I found a good middle ground with this Clean Eating Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Crazy Cake. It’s soft and a little spongy like regular cake is. It’s also a bit on the dense side almost like a brownie consistency. It’s delicious and I think our party guests will enjoy this with a little homemade ice cream.

Now all I have to do is pick a frosting recipe or create a new one just for this cake…
