Chocolate Snack Cake
 
I used to make a chocolate snack cake that used nestle's Quik for its chocolate flavor.

This is my LC version of that cake.
It turned out very close to what I remember.

1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup wheat protein isolate 5000
1 T. resistant wheat starch
1 t. baking powder
4 eggs
1/4 heavy cream

Melt butter so it can be beaten. Mix hot chocolate powder into butter, than add sweeteners. Add flour, and then eggs. Beat until smooth. Add cream so that mixture is runny.

Pour batter into a greased or foil lined 8 inch square cake pan. Bake in middle of preheated oven at 375 F for 20 minutes. Test for doneness with toothpick

Kevin, in reading through your recipe for this, I noticed POWDERED E. Do you whir your own, or do you buy it powdered?

I buy the granular and the powdered kind also. I have found with this recipe I can make icing without the usual cooling effect.

I don't see why not. bottom line ....the chocolate in the cake is very mild. You get more of a chocolate bite from the frosting.
