Mark Sisson's Chocolate Cassava Cake

 

Today is Mark Sisson's birthday, and we're celebrating in the most decadent way possible--with an amazing chocolate cassava flour cake!

Without Mark, we wouldn’t know the joy of five-finger toe shoes, “big ass salads,” the victorious feeling of breaking up with chronic cardio, and everything that Mark’s Daily Apple and Primal Kitchen is today. We feel truly honored to work for such an innovator in the real-food and ancestral health space, so kick back and relax, Mr. Sisson, you deserve it!

 Are you ready to dig in and celebrate with us? We know you'll take one bite of this cake and fall in love. Thank you Sadie Olsen, founder of Otto's Naturals, for this mouthwatering recipe!
