Deliciously moist low-sugar chocolate cake, made even more flavorful by the addition of coffee. This is from the Splenda site. Please Note: Splenda Brown Blend is 50% sugar and this recipe uses 1/2 a cup. That's 1/4 cup of sugar in the entire cake. 1/4 cup =4 Tbsp. Splenda Brown has 4g of sugar per tsp =12 g per Tbsp and 48g (1 2/3 oz) in the entire cake. The cake is intended to serve 10. That will give you 4.8g (or 1/8 ounce ounce or 0.169 ounce according to the converter on this site) of sugar per serving. Please decide for yourself if this recipe is safe for you. I, myself, am insulin dependent and I get a higher spike from two slices of 100% whole wheat bread in a sandwich than from a slice of this cake. If you are a brittle diabetic or sensitive to all sugars you may wish to avoid this recipe.
There are a few little preparation quirks that distinguish a good smoothie from a great one - at least in my book. For one, I like to par-freeze the fruit I'm using - not rock solid, mind you - because it helps thicken the drink; room temperature fruit only thins it. Ditto for the liquid I use, in this case coffee - usually left over from the pot I've made that morning. As prepared here, this smoothie has a mild coffee flavor, but if you want a stronger coffee kick then go ahead and use some double strength brewed coffee that has been well chilled.
This is lovely but some may find that it needs a bit more coffee flavor. I use a rounded tbsp of the coffee when I make it. I'm partial to hazelnut flavor coffee and I like to add a pinch of cinnamon as well. This amount will make 2 smaller drinks or one tall glass serving.
For this feisty Baileys Martini all you need is some Baileys, some good Irish Whiskey, some strong cold coffee for extra kick and a spirited shake with ice to serve. Enjoy Baileys Irish Martini sip by sip, you won’t want it to end.
