Chocolate Lactation Cake
This secretly healthy chocolate lactation cake is AMAZING, and it will boost your milk supply like crazy!
This chocolate lactation cake is SO easy because you get to utilize a box mix. The Simply Mills box mix is one of the best for baking healthy, gluten-free and simple. This takes a lot of the work out of the caket too! You can use any mix you prefer, and just add a scoop of Milk Dust Fudge Brownie to it, and follow the instructions. Start with your box mix in a bowl. Add in one scoop of your Milk Dust Fudge Brownie. Then add in 4 eggs and about 1/2 cup of water. We substituted an extra egg instead of the oil to make it lighter, but you can just follow the directions on the back too! It will still turn out amazing. Stir or mix well, and pour into a greased cake pan. Bake according to the directions on the box. There are many options for frosting!! For a healthy, high-protein version, mix a couple tbsp of cocoa powder with a small carton of greek yogurt. Addpowdered sugar, honey or stevia to sweeten and wait until cool to spread on top. This is the frosting pictured! Otherwise, use any chocolate frosting you like!
