Stina’s Chocolate Coconut Protein Cake

The cake turned square because someone ate the edges (WHO would DO such a THING! hehe). Feel free to make it and keep it round though, it will help make your slices more even :-) Bueno, regardless of this fact, it looked pretty handsome and I am happy with the ‘frosting’ because it turned out amazing!! It spread really nicely with a knife and you can feel like a proper chef, dressing the cake and all :-)))

I made this cake for Stina who’s come to visit for a few days from Sweden (Stina is the reason this blog even exists! She gave me the idea to do this). We had it alongside some tea and ooooyyyyyy glorious!!!! Chocolate: + sunflower seeds = success. It’s amazing to think about how easy it was to make it and how nice it looks, no?

I used strawberry hemp protein powder in here by ACCIDENT. I meant to use all chocolate protein but, in retrospect, this added such a great dimension to the cake!! You know how some chocolate cakes have strawberry jam inside them? Well this had it in the mix hehe :-) Feel free to play around with your flavors, sometimes accidents too yield greatness! Yum yum yum :-D
