Lime Chocolate Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by stormylee

A tasty chocolate cake with a fresh hint of lime and no added fat! This makes a small cake - you might actually prefer to call it a crustless pie! The recipe comes from Maria Ohrn's cookbook Kladdkakor.

I had to make a slight modification becuase I only had 2 large eggs, but I firgured it would be ok. Turned out really yummy - almost brownie like, but no added fat (oil/butter)! I'll be making this again.
