Sugar Free Chocolate Cake

Sugar free chocolate cake because my dad decided to completely cut off sugar from his diet three years ago. I don’t know how he does it. I salute it, but I don’t get it. I mean I do, but like, at what cost ? I reduce sugar at a maximum in my recipes but I can’t do dessert without it. I need a little sweetness in my life. And plus sugar is not just any ingredient especially in baking, the whole process of it is simple chemistry. Well as it turns out, a cake with no sugar can still rise in the oven, and thanks to Maha, one lovely member of my facebook group « Recettes sans prises de tête » I know can do a mean chocolate-y dessert for my dad.

Ingredients :

  • 100 g dark chocolate (as dark as you can tolerate)
  • 50g butter
  • 25g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • Some water

Recipe : 

  • Melt your chocolate in a bain marie, then remove from the heat and add your butter till it’s combined. Add the baking powder and flour and set aside.
  • Mix your eggs with just a bit of water and a pinch of salt, then incorporate your chocolate mix to the beaten eggs
  • Spread some butter on two ramekins and sprinkle some flour on top, before using a spoon to pour your mixture on them.
  • Put in a pre-heated oven at 175°C, and bake for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Get your little ramekins out of the oven and let it cool for a bit before putting it in your plate.
  • You can add some dried raisins for some sweetness if you like, or some type of fruit jam, but I served my dad’s with some unsweetened whipped cream and mixed berries and he just loved it !
