My Favorite Low Carb Cake- Cocoa Loco Rum Cake!
« on: July 26, 2015, 09:29:42 AM »
Every once in a while I want a special dessert. My absolute favorite is Umpa's Cocoa Loco Rum Cake. Everyone who tries this cake LOVES the flavor and texture. I hope you enjoy this dessert as much as I do. The recipe is on page 181 of the FAT TO SKINNY Sugar Free Bakery Book.  8)


Cocoa Loco Rum Cake!

   1 ¾ cups golden flax seed meal

   2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Frosting
   8 oz cream cheese
   1 tablespoon rum emulsion
   2 frozen sugar free Turtle Candies

Frosting

This cake is loco-fantastic! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

If you haven't tried it, do so! It's so satisfyingly rich and tasty.
When it cools down a bit more, I going to make it again!
