Fixate Chocolate Cake (5)


If you follow the 21-Day fix meal plan, you’ll be happy to know that this is 21-Day Fix APPROVED. In fact, it is from Autumn’s new cookbook called Fixate!  I adapted it slightly, replacing the almond an coconut flour with white whole wheat flour.

I honestly don’t do much baking anymore so when this cookbook was released, with DESSERTS, I immediately had to try most of them.  And I have!  I will be sharing more of the recipes as I make them again.  In the meantime, if you’d like to purchase the cookbook itself, click HERE.  Um, did someone say Fix approved Skinny Cocktails???

{21-Day Fix Approved} Vanilla Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Yield: 12 servings

1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup unsalted organic butter, room temperature, divided use
1 cup of honey (or maple syrup), divided use
4 large eggs
1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk, divided use
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.  Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and mix well.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together 1/2 cup butter and 3/4 cup honey for 1 minute.  Add eggs 1 at a time, beat until blended.  Add 1/4 cup almond milk and extract, beat until blended.  Add flour mixture to butter mixture and beat until creamy.

Pour batter into prepared pan.  Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Cool on a baking rack.

To make the frosting: beat the remaining 1/4 cup butter in a medium bowl for 1 to 2 minutes or until creamy.  Add remaining 3 tablespoons of almond milk to butter and beat until blended.  Add cocoa powder, beat until blended, scraping down the sides of the bowl.

Slowly add the remaining 1/4 cup honey while beating on medium speed.  Once cake is cooled, evenly spread with frosting and cut into 12 slices.

(Counts as 2 yellows and 1 1/2 blues)

    I’m jw, but the frosting will have some raw eggs in it??

    1. Brooke Griffin

      No eggs in the frosting!

  2. Kathie

    This recipe is incomplete. At no point in the instructions do you mention the vanilla or milk. And the frosting recipe doesn’t make frosting. Something is seriously off about these proportions.

    1. Brooke Griffin

      I did forget to add the line about the milk and vanilla…just made the correction. Also, I can assure it makes enough frosting!

  3. Katarina

    I didn’t see what this counts for. Must be one yellow per slice?

    I am going to try this in cupcake form tonight. I figure 12 cupcakes = 12 servings, then I am not over eating 🙂

    1. Brooke Griffin

      One slice is 2 yellows and 1 1/2 blues!

  4. Rebecca

    How long does it take for the cake to cool before you can apply the frosting? Also, have you tried to freeze it? Will it last?


    1. Brooke Griffin

      Probably at least 30 minutes!

  5. Tiffany

    Can whole wheat flour be used or does it have to be white whole wheat flour?
