Daddy's chocolate courgette cake

choc

My dad is cutting down on sugar but still loves chocolate cake. This is one of his favourite recipes that allows him to 'have his cake - and eat it'

We bake this in a well buttered ring tin but it could be cooked as individual muffins.

 

Ingredients

Cake

180g ground almonds

30g of coconut flour (can use almond flour)

30g cocoa powder

1 tbsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon 

1 tbsp powdered sweetener

85g unsalted butter - melted

1 grated courgette

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla essence 

50ml milk

 

Glaze

60g butter

50g 90% Lindt dark chocolate - chopped

2 tbsp powdered sweetener

2 tbsp cocoa powder

 

Instructions

Mix all the dry ingredients together in one bowl

Mix the wet ingredients together in one bowl

Mix the two bowls together gradually in the food mixer - mix well

Spread the lovely chocolate batter in the ring tin (or muffin tins) and bake for 35-40 mins (bit less if muffins) 150°C in a fan oven. Let cool for 15 mins, turn over the ring tin onto a plate and then glaze.

For the glaze, melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave (or over boiling water) and add the sweetener and cocoa powder. It takes a little while for the glaze to set.

The cake makes 16 slices and is lovely with Greek yogurt and berries - Eve Weeks
