It's National Black Forest Cake Day! Enjoy it with my Slimmed Down version of this tasty treat!

Servings 10

Ingredients

For Cake:

  • 1 15.25-ounce box Devils Food Cake Mix
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
  • 10 each dark chocolate cordial cherries

For Frosting:

  • 1 13.5-ounce can coconut cream refrigerated overnight
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, yogurt, water and coconut oil. Blend until smooth. 

  3. In a prepared 9×13-baking pan, pour cake mix. Gently push cordial cherries about 1/2-inch from each other into cake mixture. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Let cake cool completely. 

  4. While the cake is cooling, make coconut whipped cream. In a mixing bowl, add refrigerated coconut cream (just the cream, not the liquid left at the bottom of the can). Using a hand mixer beat coconut cream on high for 1 minute. Add powdered sugar and beat for another 4 minutes. Refrigerate whipped cream until cake has completely cooled. Spread coconut whip evenly on top of cake. Use chocolate shavings for garnish and enjoy!
