Mocha Brownie Cake (Reduced Sugar)

Mocha Brownie Cake. There are plenty of reasons to cut down on sugar other than the obvious one of high calories.  Sugar accelerates the aging process, is bad for your heart and causes tooth decay.   While you don’t have to give up sugar entirely, consuming it in moderation is ok.

The ingredients to make this recipe are:

For the cake
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 -1/2 ounces semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped (you can also use a combination of  both chocolates.  Remember that bittersweet has less sugar than semi-sweet)
2 -1/2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate, chopped
3 ounces Earth Balance Vegan Buttery sticks (or unsalted butter
5 large eggs
1 cup Truvia Cup for Cup Stevia blend
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
