Amazing Healthy Chocolate Cake!

 
Chocolate Cake
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
(sift cocoa powder before adding to avoid lumps)
1 egg or egg white
¼ cup brown sugar
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tbsp almond extract or vanilla
2 cups cauliflower
1/2 cup skim milk
3 tbsp canola oil
Preheat oven to 350F, and grease an 8×8 square baking dish. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, and mix very well. Combine all liquid ingredients and the cauliflower in a food processor and blend until super-smooth, so there are NO lumps whatsoever.  Pour wet into dry, and mix until just combined, then pour into prepared pan and bake 30 minutes.
 note: the  recipe from the site I posted uses frozen cauliflower, I couldn't find it so I used fresh cauliflower. I also used one egg. She uses a substitute. If you want to view her recipe go to: http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2012/06/18/cauliflower-chocolate-cake/
