Awesome Low Carb Chocolate Dessert

I just tweaked Linda’s low carb chocolate cake recipe and my version turned out GREAT.  There is nothing diet tasting about this.  It makes two servings.  I gave half to Ron and he loved it, too, and he is not dieting!

3 MINUTE CHOCOLATE CAKE  (Tweaked)

1/4 cup almond flour, 1 ounce
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon granulated Splenda (or 5 packets Splenda)
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2 tablespoons Torani sugar free vanilla syrup
1 egg, beaten

Mix all ingredients well.  I used a Corelle cereal bowl to mix and cook in. Microwave for 60 seconds (at least in my 900 watt oven.  If using a higher power microwave, try 40 or 50 seconds).  It should be almost dry.  It will continue to set after you take it out of the microwave.

This is so rich and good it doesn’t need a topping!

I painted the edge of the stove well today but got the paint a little thick, so it took forever to dry.  I decided to wait until tomorrow to finish the rest of the painting.  Will have pictures then.

Ultra Low Carb Pancakes!

Ultra low carb pancakes

I really like low carb dieting.  I’m to the point I don’t even count calories or carbs now — just eat legal foods until I’m satisfied.  If I’m hungry, I eat.  And I’m dropping around a pound a week without any effort at all.

With my slow metabolism, that’s pretty amazing!

Usually not eating bread doesn’t bother me.  But once in a while a craving comes out of nowhere.  This evening was one of those times.

I searched for a low carb pancake recipe using only almond flour, with no Carbquick or soy.  I found one that looked good, but it made this curious statement:  “The only real difference is that they won’t “bubble” on top the same way as regular pancakes.”

Looking at the recipe, I saw why.  There was no baking powder in it.

So I added 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and the pancakes bubbled when I cooked them, and they were light,  fluffy and tender.  The taste wasn’t superb by themselves, but when I put sugar free maple syrup on them, they were wonderful!!!

So if you are low carbing and missing pancakes, do try this recipe!  Just remember to add 1/4 t. baking powder!
