Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake

Posted by tinako on December 2, 2010

Beans, Rice, Sticks, and Squash

Did that title get your attention?

My parents came for dinner and I made Southwestern Black Beans, brown rice, Corn Sticks, and mashed squash.

Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake

Dessert was Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake, made minty with peppermint extract, which was a nice holiday change.  I used 1/2 t but it was a tiny bit strong, so next time I would use 1/4 t.  I also cut the chocolate chips to 1/2 c, and it was not really noticeable.  I decided to replace all the oil with Prune Puree, and while it was definitely passable, it was more chewy than with half-oil/half-substitute.
