Comparing 3 min chocolate cake.......

I made the 3 minute chocolate cake and wanted to compare. One the way it is written.

3 minute chocolate cake
Ingredients -
1/4C Almond flour 2 carbs
1 T Cocoa Power 1
1/4 t Baking Power 0
5 packets of Splenda 5

2 T Melted Butter 0
1 T Water 0
1 Egg 0.6



In a 2 Cup Pyrex measuring cup...yeah, I made it in a the glass measuring cup, blend all dry ingredients. Add water, melted butter and egg...mix throughly. Cover with plastic wrap (To vent, cut small slit in center of plastic wrap.) Microwave on high for 1 minute (I microwaved for 1 minute 10 seconds...you need to adjust as you think is right) Cool a bit, eat warm with whipped cream or cool completely to ice cake. This could serve at least 2 people, maybe three. When this comes out of the microwave, it looks a bit wet but drys as it cools. Cake without icing is 8.6 carbs. I used Erythritol (1.8 carbs total) instead of the Splenda to bring down the carb count and it turned out fine. The person who sent it to me frosted it with a combination of Twist and Cream Cheese mixed together.

So the glucomannan made it puff up like that? I think that's a pretty interesting discovery. I'm going to start plopping in small amts in some of these lc baking recipes.

Give it a try and let us know how it goes. I don't know how much it would be.
