Forget acai berries and pomegranate. Chocolate is our "superfood" of choice": decadent, rich and packed with antioxidants and endorphins. Hell, it's like taking a vitamin and a happy pill all at once! It's also delicious whether it's eaten in traditional bar form or used as an ingredient in cakes and cookies. But add in all that high fructose corn syrup, refined white sugar and bleached flour and heath nuts will argue any benefits have been outweighed by these processed additives.
So for this week's Battle of the Dishes, we went in search of the most healthful chocolate cakes around. Can you really get a decent chocolate cake without gluten or refined sugar, or will these imposters crumble under the weight of this battle?
