Gluten Free Peppermint Patty Loaf Cake

Peppermint Patty Loaf Cake is a rich chocolate cake with the perfect hint of peppermint to create a delightful flavor reminiscent of a gigantic peppermint patty.The decadent cake tastes so sinful that no one will believe that it is actually pretty harmless with only 90 calories per serving.
