    Chocolate Heaven Cake

    Post by Jan1 on Fri Apr 10 2015, 13:05


    BEST LOW CARB CHOCOLATE CAKE

    As low carb friend Libby says, "this is now my go to cake. It has to be the best low carb chocolate cake out there. It’s so easy to make and so rich, with the texture being more like a rich chocolate truffle.

    Because my ‘best low carb chocolate cake’ is wheat free, gluten free, grain free, no added sugar and nut free, I make it every time for my children's birthday parties. And because it is so rich, the adults eat it too (with a good coffee). I love this Chocolate Heaven Cake, and I must say it is the first thing I want to make if I have chocolate in the house.

    It can be made as a cake then sliced, served with berries and whipped cream. Or bake in a square dish then cut into tasting squares and top each piece off with a fresh berry. This is a easy idea to take as finger food to share with friends.

    INGREDIENTS:
    Serves 15
    300g dark 75% chocolate
    175g butter
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    6 eggs
    6 tbs double cream
    4 tsp granulated stevia (optional)

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    Melt the chocolate and butter together over a low heat in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before adding the vanilla extract.
    In another bowl beat the eggs, cream and stevia together for 3-4 minutes (use a stick blender or hand whisk). It will go frothy and remain runny.
    Slowly add the egg mixture to the chocolate mixture in the saucepan, stirring all the time. As you add more egg mixture, the chocolate and butter will thicken to the consistency of custard.
    Pour into a prepared tin (see below). Grease a loose bottom cake tin with butter then line the loose bottom with baking paper and push through the outer ring so the baking paper adds a seal and stops the cake mixture from leaking.
    Bake at 180C for approx 40 minutes.
