A heavenly black bean chocolate cake that is generously coated with a smooth and creamy chocolate avocado mousse frosting.

I love chocolate cake but sometimes I don't have time to measure out tons of ingredients. I have found a simple, quick and healthy(ish) solution to my problem that will hopefully help you out too. I use premix chocolate cake or muffin mix, instead of adding in loads of oil and full cream milk I add in black beans, eggs, coffee and vanilla. Just like that I turn an unhealthy premix into a slightly healthier cake option.

A chocolate cake is not complete without a creamy, delicious and smooth frosting. This chocolate avocado mousse frosting is perfect for this cake. All your chocolate cravings will definitely be satisfied with this cake, I promise.
