CHOCOLATE HEAVEN CAKE

What can I say?  This truly lovely chocolate cake is a big hit with everyone who tries it.  I’m not sure if it’s the lovely chocolatey sponge, the amazing chocolate sauce, or the sweetened cream that hits the hot-spot for most people – maybe it’s the combination of all three?  At 7 carbs per slice (if you cut your cake into 12 slices), it’s a delicious treat you can have when you have a few carbs in the bank!

Ingredients

  • 200g        Almond Flour
  • 2 tsp        Baking Powder
  • 2 tblsp     High content cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp     Xanthan Gum
  • 8 tblsp     Melted Butter
  • 5 large     Eggs
  • 1 tsp        Vanilla Extract
  • 60ml        Skinny Syrup Sweetener – Vanilla or Cinnamon Dolce
  • 200ml      Double Cream
  • 25ml        Skinny Syrup Sweetener – Vanilla or Cinnamon Dolce
  • 4 tblsp     Chocoholic Chocolate Spread from The Skinny Food Company

Method

  • Grease and line two 7″ loose-bottomed cake tins
  • Preheat the oven to 175*C
  • Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bow.  Mix well.
  • Add the remainder of the ingredients and mix well for 1 minute, until thoroughly combined
  • If your mixture is a little stiff, then you can add a splash of almond milk to loosen it
  • Pour equally into the two cake tins, level off, and bake in the centre of the oven for 20 mins
  • Take out of the tins and cool the cakes on a wire rack
  • When the cake is cool, spread the chocolate sauce on the bottom layer of the cake.  I sometimes add a tablespoon of cream to loosen it a little and make it easier to spread
  • Whisk the cream until stiff peaks form and then whisk in the 25ml of sweetener to combine thoroughly
  • Pipe or spread the cream on top of the chocolate spread and place the second layer of sponge on the top.
  • If you have a little erythritol (or keto) icing sugar, you can sieve a little onto the top to make it look pretty. 

NOTE: I OFTEN ADJUST MY RECIPES WHEN I FIND NEW INGREDIENTS AND WILL UPDATE THE RECIPES ON MY BLOG ACCORDINGLY (RATHER THAN PRODUCING ANOTHER RECIPE), SO PLEASE ALWAYS CHECK BEFORE MAKING.
