Got a hankering for chocolate? This crowd-pleasing cake from Dreena Burton offers a healthier way to satisfy your cocoa cravings. Sweet potato helps add wholesome sweetness to both the base and frosting. If you’re short on time or want to keep this dessert lighter, you can skip the frosting; it will still be delicious. If you have fresh berries on hand, sprinkle some over this decadent-tasting cake just before serving. You will not be disappointed. One happy baker writes, “This recipe is delicious! Very moist. Almost like a brownie. I have already made it twice!”
