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.

Low Carbing Hostess

Low carb devil’s food cake with strawberries and whipped cream

Gee, it sure is nice visiting a sister who is on a low carb diet, too.  I never make desserts like she does.  So the devil’s food cake with strawberries and whipped cream that she fixed for us today was an absolute delight!

Ann and I went shopping today.  She bought new towels and looked for a dehydrator.  I bought fishing tackle.

I had planned to fish in Cecil’s pond.  But the fish are so tame that when we walk by the pond, they line up in the water and watch us curiously, totally without fear.  I just didn’t feel that it was sporting to fish for them, so will use my new tackle somewhere else.

Sheba was a bad dog!

Sheba dug a hole in Ann and Cecil’s yard.  So she spent much of the day in her pen with the dig-proof hardware cloth floor, only getting out for leash walks.  Traveling with her looks like it’s going to be a real challenge for a while.

We have decided that her crate takes up way too much room in the Casita.  We took it out today, and she will sleep on the floor by the door tonight.  If she makes it through the night without a potty accident, then we won’t use it in the trailer again.

The crate is way too big for the camper, so we took it out today.

If she does have an accident, then I’ll put the crate back in the trailer for the remainder of this trip, but build her a crate underneath my bed when I get back home.

I am starting to think that I was nuts to want a puppy!  🙂
