The Bundt Cake

This recipe uses the Cake Mix in a Jar I posted the other day but I made it healthier with Barlean’s Green’s Powder Chocolate Silk, Butter Flavored Coconut Oil and beet puree. NO FOOD COLORING! I also reduced the sugar by using a stevia baking blend.

If you want to give this as a gift you can get a printable version of the instructions here to attach to the jar.
