A wonderful yet low carb chocolate cake for the entire family to enjoy. It was my birthday on the 8th of march and for a dinner celebration on the 9th at my family's house, I really wanted to indulge in a nice dessert. One I could share with the entire family but that didn't leave me feeling like a cheater. Therefore, I took out my favorite cakes cookbook and adapted it to a low carb successful formula. I hope you like it. This makes a very dense cake so you probably won't need to eat more than one piece. The carb amount on this one is higher than my other recipes, but hey, It's my party and I'll indulge if I want to.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat over to 190 degrees Celsius.
  2. Separate the whites from the yolks and beat the whites stiff.
  3. In the bowl with the yolks add the sweetener, melted chocolate, coffee powder, baking powder, vanilla essence, ground coconut and almond flour.
  4. Gently fold in the egg whites. This will give the cake it's height and make your dough more moist.
  5. Bake for about 25minutes at 190°C Check while it's cooking because all ovens are different.
  6. Afterwards let the cake cool and in the meantime we can make the filling.
  7. Mix the cream cheese with the sweetener, soft butter and add the Amaretto. I would suggest putting it in the fridge to harden. This will make the smearing a lot easier.
  8. Now you can assemble the cake. Cut your cake in half horizontally, making two nice flat discs.Generously add the cream cheese filling and put both halves back together. Don't push them down, you want the extra height.
