- 2/3 cup white quinoa
- 1 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup almond milk
- 4 organic eggs
- 1 tsp Simply Organic Vanilla Extract
- 3/4 cup organic butter
- 1 1/2 cup Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Sugar
- 1 cup organic cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
Wash quinoa in cool water, drain and add 1 1/3 cup of water in a pot. Heat to simmer, cover and cook until quinoa is soft and has absorbed all the water, about 18 minutes. Spread flat to cool on a cookie sheet. Should produce about 2 cups.
Start with all the ingredients at room temperature. In a food processor, combine quinoa, milk, eggs, vanilla and butter. Blend until smooth, about 5 minutes, scraping down sides halfway through. Add sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt and puree 2 more minutes.
Pour into two 9 inch greased cake pans. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees, rotate and continue for another 25 minutes. The top should spring back when touched. A toothpick will come out sticky, but dark, instead of shiny.
Rest in pan for ten minutes before removing. Set upside down on wire rack to cool.
