Fat Reduced Hazelnut and Raspberry Cake plus it is Gluten Free and Dairy Free too! (Real Delicious)

Have you ask yourself... Can we eat cake everyday?

Is there such thing called the healthy cake???

I do.

"The trick to good health is to eat something you really enjoy, eat only a small piece, and eat it occasionally, not everyday." - Chrissy Freer and this is what she wrote in her newly published book, Real Delicious.

Me and my sweet tooth wish that I can eat cake, cookies and desserts everyday but my brain, heart, thighs and the rest of my body said that I can't. What should I do? Listen to me or my brain??? LOL!

Fortunately, there are several recipes that I found at the Real Delicious that can create cakes and desserts that contain good nutrition and one of them is this...

Dried Cherry Chocolate Muffins (William Sonoma)

It is a sad day for me... because Joyce from Kitchen Flavours, Lena from Frozen wings and I have decided to end our Bake-along!!!

Joyce from Kitchen Flavours, Lena from Frozen wings and I have been baking along for 5 years!!! For all these years, we have been sharing our joy and pains of our daily lives and baking. I missed you gals! I hope that we will stay in touch and find great opportunities elsewhere apart from baking...

What's next?

One: We are still baking but not for long! This dried cherry chocolate muffins from the book, William Sonoma, Essential of Baking or here will be our second last bake-along. And our last will be Bundt Cake, a theme bake for our 5th bake-along anniversary. Then, that's it!!!

Two: We won't be using the linky thumbnails for the last two bake-along. If you wish to bake-along with us, you can publish your post as usual and leave a comment in our blog post.

Sob sob... but let's get back to baking.

I wouldn't say that these chocolate muffins are the fluffiest or the most chocolaty or the richest or the best...

Please don't get me wrong! These chocolate muffins are nice but nice in a way with its unique texture and taste! Although these tangy and chocolaty muffins are baked in standard 1/3 cup size muffin cups, they are rather short, compact, moist and cakey-brownie-like. Plus if you bake them without any paper liner, they would be extra nice with their crusty outside.
