Chocolate Beet Pudding Cake
Beets are a contradiction. When pulled out of the ground, they look like unappetizing, dirty round lumps. But when you cut one open, the intense purple-red color is almost shockingly beautiful. Beets are very healthy and highly versatile; you can eat them in soups and salads, roasted, sautéed, and fried... you can even use them in a cake! I used roasted beets for this recipe, and the result was a moist, reddish-brown cake that has a pudding-like texture when served warm. If you cannot wrap your mind around the notion of eating beets in a cake, feel free to substitute applesauce for a tamer, if less thrilling, snack cake. — Lea Hendry Valle, Sweet Paleo.

These delicious chocolate cakes are a great dessert for you to serve at your Passover celebration, and once you try them, you will never go back to any other recipe.  These cakes are all about the chocolate, not the sugar, and use healthy fats, so you can satiate your cravings without the guilt. You know you are going to eat dessert anyway, so why not make it in the best way possible.

Poor Bruce Bogtrotter; all he wanted was a piece of chocolate cake. After he steals a slice from the kitchen, though, the principal Ms. Trunchbull creates a punishment that could rival even the Coney Island hot dog contest: eat a piece of double chocolate cake, then eat the entire double chocolate cake. Thanks to brave Matila — “You can do it, Brucey!” — Bruce’s peers cheer him on, and the little guy pulls through. Our recreation of Ms. Trunchbull’s cake would have been a lot kinder to Bruce’s stomach. A dark chocolate bundt is decorated only with a dusting of powdered sugar — this way you can enjoy an extra big slice and not feel overwhelmed.   Click here to see 15 Star-Quality Recipes from Famous '90s Movies

This cake martini recipe is the answer to a parent's long day. Chances are if you have a small child, you may have applesauce at home. You can easily transform junior's snack into a delicious adult beverage with the addition of cake flavored vodka and rum to the applesauce! Feeling fancy? Get creative with garnishes. A cinnamon stick makes a great drink stirrer as does an apple slice perched on the rim of the glass. Cheers!

Sweet and Salty Cake
This is our signature creation, our most loved cake, and our most requested recipe. Is all this attention warranted? Absolutely. Our Sweet and Salty Cake is an indulgent but sophisticated adult sweet: the perfectly salted caramel contrasts beautifully with the rich chocolate layers, giving the cake balance and character. It probably goes without saying that the salted caramel is also delicious poured over dark chocolate ice cream. Fleur de sel, or sea salt, is readily available at grocery stores; however, there is a whole world of specialty salts now available online and at specialty food markets. Gray salt (sel gris), Hawaiian sea salt, Italian sea salt, and smoked sea salt will all work well in this recipe, though with slightly different (but always delicious) results.
