Chocolaty Chocolate Cake Recipe

What makes our Chocolate Cake Recipe healthier for you than other chocolate cakes?

We use Olive oil instead of shortening or vegetable oil.  Olive oil is packed full of antioxidants and mono-unsaturated fats and is generally thought of to be one of the most heart-healthy choices. Olive oil is shown to increase good cholesterol levels while decreasing the bad cholesterol levels in our bodies, and helping to prevent against heart disease and certain types of cancer. Additionally, olive oil works to promote the secretion of bile from the pancreas.
