|Almond Butter Birthday Cake|
with Nutella Frosting
Please be advised that this recipe is still a dessert, so of course it shouldn't be eaten everyday as part of a healthy diet, but as far as a cake goes, it is much better than average. If cut into 12 or 16 slices, each piece will contain about 20g of mostly heart healthy fats, only about 15g of sugar, a couple of grams of fiber and about 10g of protein. Not too shabby for a birthday cake, and since you make it yourself it doesn't have anything artificial or processed in it. Of course I did ruin all that when I added in some colored sprinkles and frosted it with Nutella, but you only turn 10 once (double digits!), so I had to add a little something extra. You could definitely make a regular buttercream frosting for this cake, but I love Nutella and sometimes getting something straight from a jar when you have a billion other things to do in a day is the best option. I know my son loved this cake and we all enjoyed it (for breakfast) a couple of times last week.
