Sugar free Chocolate Cake

IMG_1211.JPGA delicious chocolate cake with far less calories and no sugar whatsoever, what is not to love!

Ingredients:

  • 225g of Xylitol ( a sugar alternative, easily available in supermarkets such as Waitrose)
  • 225g of butter
  • 200g self raising flour
  • 25g corn flour
  • cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs
  • milk.

Method:

  1. Pre heat then oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Line two cake tins with greaseproof paper and grease the tins.
  3. Weigh out ingredients.
  4. Mix the butter with the xylitol until creamy.
  5. Add 1 egg and beat into the mixture.
  6. Fold in 2 spoonfuls of the flour.
  7. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until all the eggs are used.
  8. Fold in the corn flour.
  9. Add a little milk if the consistency of the cake mix is too thick.
  10. Add the cocoa power until the mixture tastes chocolatey enough.
  11. Half the mixture and spoon into the cake tins.
  12. Smooth the cake mixture in the tin.
  13. Bake the cake for 25 minutes. The cake is ready when a skewer pushed into the centre comes out clean.
  14. Take the cakes out of the tins and leave to cool on a wire rack.
  15. Once cooled decorate as you wish. I made butter icing with xylitol for my cake and used a sugar free chocolate sauce as a filling.
