How to Make the Best Chocolate Cake Ever!

When I found this recipe I was floored.  And then when it actually tasted good...I was shocked!  My super-picky husband even said it was good.  Its a yummy chocolate can recipe with hidden blueberries AND all whole wheat flour.  And no butter! They'll never know.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) this snack didn't last long enough for a pic.  The teens from our church's youth group (the testers) gobbled them up.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
6 T unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1 egg

Keep in mind this is a small recipe...only fits a 8x8, so if you plan to make a layer cake, be sure to double it!

Directions:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.  Combine water, blueberries and egg in a blender until smooth, then add to flour mixture. Whisk until well combine and pour into pan.  Bake 30 minutes or until toothpick placed in center comes out clean.


I found this recipe here. I just put a simple frosting on my cake, but they have directions for a more decadent one also.


  1. Is this the one you made for Sunday? Because the girls were going nuts over it. I'm adding it to my recipes!

  2. Never mind. I actually read what you said. ; )
    Again, so good!

  3. Yum this sounds good! I'll have to see if it passes inspection over this way. I have a silly question for you. Did you recently open this blogger acct? (Before April?) Cause if so I wondered how you set it up so that your name shows up rather than email AND name in the blogger dashboard. (For those following you). I don't think you are following me (are you?) but if not, follow me and see what I mean. Just something that's annoying me which I can't figure out how to fix. haha. Thanks Rebecca :)
