Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Serves: 8

This cake is so very chocolately with a soft dense texture! If you are looking for something that is full of chocolate then this is definitely the way to go! I have removed the butter to lower the fat and calories immensely! Mmmmm…….! 🙂

Fit Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c (120g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 lareg eggs, divided
  • 12 tbs (6+6) splenda (or granular sweetener of choice)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbs chocolate extract
  • 3/4 c unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 c unsweetened coconut milk (or milk of choice)

***********************************************************

  • 9-in spring form pan
  • non stick spray

**********************************************************

Directions:

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Spray your spring foam pan with non stick spray. Mix your cocoa powder, applesauce and milk together in a bowl. Mixture will be thick so ensure that you mix it well! In a separate bowl beat your egg yolks with 6tbs splenda, vanilla & chocolate extracts. Mix your cocoa mixture into your egg whites. In a third bowl, beat your egg whites and remaining 6 tbs splenda until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture a 1/4 at a time until fully incorporated. Pour your batter into your pan and bake for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and let cake sit in pan for 30 minutes. (Your cake will fall and shrink! Don’t think you did something wrong!) Remove cake from pan and allow to fully cool before serving.

Sprinkle with confectionary sugar (or mock confectionary sugar, i.e, splenda/stevia turned to powder in a food processor), whipped cream or berries!

    amazing!!! i was really naughty and had it for breakfast 😦 i was craving chocolate i made it last night and couldnt wait any longer haha but i did my workout, then protein shake and then cake! it is perfect so moist and tastier than mud cakes i previously used to make loaded with butter and oil! keep the recipes coming loving them all i say this everytime but i do 🙂

    • Hey Candice!

      Want to know a secret??!! I ate it for breakfast 3 days in a row! hahahaha! I absolutely loved it! I always refer to the new studies that say if you eat chocolate for breakfast it helps curb your cravings! That’s how I justify it….and to be honest, it totally helps kick my sugar cravings!! Everything in moderation, that’s my motto. If I was eating it for all 3 meals, THEN we would have a problem! hahaha but I actually like to eat yogurt or egg whites for snack before bed, so it’s like switching my dessert and breakfast around! 😉
