low-sugar chocolate cake

Here it is, the low-sugar, wheat-free chocolate cake recipe:

125g butter, melted
1/2 to 1c xylitol, depending on how much sweetness you are used to
2 eggs
1c spelt flour
1 1/2tsp baking powder
1/4c cocoa
1/2 c milk

mix dry ingredients together/. Add eggs, milk and melted butter, and mix well.
Bake in a 7" round tin at 180deg c for about 40 minutes until a skewer pushed through the centre comes out clean.
Cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out.


1x100g bar guylian 'no added sugar' milk chocolate, or other low-sugar chocolate of your choosing
80ml cream

Melt the chocolate over a pan of hot water. Stir in the cream. Leave to thicken slightly before pouring onto the cake.
Depending on the chocolate you use, you may need to adjust the amount of cream. This was a soft ganache, so use a little less cream, maybe 60ml, for a firmer one. You may need more cream if you are using dark chocolate.

Enjoy your guilt free chocolate cake with wanton abandon! .
