MMMMM.....

The birthday cake was good, my diabetic father really enjoyed it. I tried a piece today and thought the taste was better today then yesterday (made two days ago). I will definitely make this cake again.

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Just wanted to bump this--I've been staring down this thread for years and years and never tried it, because it seems like every one of my sugar free chocolate baked good attempts end up in the garbage. Lately I've been on a baking kick, though, and I was encouraged by some recent successes with almond flour---I think due to the availability of more finely milled almond flour--and I had some high quality cocoa and all other ingredients on hand. I went for it. I also made a dark chocolate ganache drizzle. Even though its day 1 and it's supposed to taste better the next day, it's already very "convincing" tasting, no off flavors. It does seem slightly dry and I question whether you really need to wait for a toothpick to come out "clean", but overall I suspect it'll be a keeper.

Sometimes with a chocolate baked good, I like to take it out of the oven before the toothpick is completely clean. In Cook's Illustrated recipes, they alway say to take the cake out when you see a few moist crumbs on the toothpick. I also find that 1 tsp. of glucomannan makes for a nice moist product, and I now add it to all my cakes.

Thanks! I love Cooks Illustrated as reference and I've got glucomannon on my shopping list now.

Great looking cake! I made this for my birthday cake a couple years ago, last year was Chicken Lady's Almond Flour Fudge Cake - they are both sooooooo delicious!

what went wrong?

made cake by recipe changing only Davinci German chocolate syrup for vanilla even baked in my brand new rose pan...could not get that sucker done...took it out after 55 mins, turned it out and my petals were not done!!!! Back she went into the pan.... a little crooked unfortunately but oh well.... cooked another 10 mins.... checked with a pick...just a few moist crumbs. Still not done but eatable....oven temp fine, new powders


Been lurking and watching this recipe for soooo long, I so wanted this to turn out...any ideas? not raining, nice sunny day heard that can make a difference

I really don't know why this didn't work for you. I make the gF one now but I used to make this one alot. I always use a bundt pan.....maybe because of the curves it takes longer. Maybe someone else will chime in.

You didn't make a big change so it should have worked. Sometimes I have to really change things in a recipe.

Bummer!! I have made this many times in the rose pan (post and pic 113) and I didn't have any problems. I was going to say you might check your oven temp with a thermometer, but sounds like you know it is working fine. I hope you still enjoyed it!

This recipe is AWESOME. Lately I've been doing it as cupcakes.

If you half this recipe, you get 12. I bake them for exactly 20 minutes and they come out moist and perfect every time.

If your almond meal is a bit on the course side, run all the dry ingredients together in the food processor for about 30 seconds before adding the wet. This REALLY improves the final texture for me. Makes it have a very "crumby" delicate texture like a regular white flour cake IMHO. Not heavy and dense like a lot of low carb baked goods.

With a cookie or something that requires creaming of butter and sugar, you might need granulated Splenda. But not with this. I used 42 drops of EZ sweetz (white bottle, yellow cap, not the stronger blue cap version) and it is just about perfect for my tastes.

I used Optimum Nutrition vanilla whey protein in place of the gluten and I think it tastes BETTER than the original. Wheat free, and less carbs, too.

I use water in place of the Davinci syrup and I use a little more than the recipe calls for, to make it thinner like a "normal" cake batter. With my changes, I come up with 2.7 net grams of carbs for each cupcake. TOTALLY WORTH IT if you ask me.

If you are on the fence about making this recipe, don't hesitate. Get up and do it now!!! It's AMAZING. Chocolatey, moist, nice "crumb" texture just like a REAL cake.

OOOOOO, THIS IS A KEEPER!

I made this recipe yesterday, but wasn't up for a chocolate cake...wanted something vanilla for with strawberries and whipped cream. Made a half recipe and just left out the cocoa. Baked in a round CorningWare Casserole Dish and sliced with goodies on top. OMG! What a treat! This one's a KEEEEPER!

Hmm...mostly almond meal, so that means high protein and therefore I can have it ANYTIME I WANT, right?! I love this WOE Who could possiblycomplain when dessert can be eaten as a meal?

Make a chocolaty Mayo Cake today! Just had a hankerin' for chocolate for past several days...WUUUUUUUNDERFUL! Really hit the spot. Made it as originally posted, but added flaked coconut and baked in 2 bread pans for "even" sized (flat, not wedged, like a bundt cake) slices to freeze in 2 slice packets. YUUUUM!

This is the absolute best LC chocolate cake I have made to date. It rises a bit better than the Chicken Lady's chocolate cake and better than the BTF cakes, and I am *guessing* that has something to do with the VWG.

It is super moist and has a delicate crumb. I followed someone's tip to add a teaspoon of gluc. This will be my go-to lc chocolate cake from now on. I did mine in a 13x9 pan and poured on a warm glaze of chocolate and peanut butter ganache. Yum! Avoid having any of this cake until it has had a chance to sit overnight. The flavor becomes richer.

Ahhh, I read through this entire thread to see if anyone had attempted to make a non chocolate cake from this recipe! Thanks so much! I'm going to experiment and make a regular vanilla version. I love chocolate but I'm really in the mood for a nice vanilla cake!

Does anyone have the recipe for the ganache Perdita used to ice her cake in the picture on post #251?

Thanks

I wish I did! I've been wanting to try the cake with it too...How naughty of Perdita to silently tease with such a tantalizing pic and then disappear!

In addition to the recipe I added 2 squares of melted unsweetened chocolate and a few more drops of liquid splenda to the mix (mext time even more splenda) For the frosting I melted 5 hershey bars with 1/4 cup heavy cream and dizzled it over the top of the bundt cake. 5 bars was too much so 4 bars would be perfect plus I'd add more liquid splenda to that next time too.

Best chocolate cake yet, and I can see this as brownies with added walnuts too.

Maybe this is what Perdita used.
