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.

Chocolate Snack Cake (9 servings 2 carbs each)

cake:

6 T. butter
1 T. granular erythritol
1 T. not.Sugar
1/8 t. sweetzfree (1/2 cup equivilent)
1 .5 oz. package of Big Train low carb Hot Chocolate Mix
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


icing:

2 T. butter
1/4 cup powdered erythritol
1 T. polyD
1 T. not/Sugar
1/3 cup equivilent splenda (8 drops sweetzfree)
2 t. warm water
2 T. Eat Well Be Well chocolate chips (melted)


wisk to combine
powdered erythritol, not/Sugar, and polyD
add warm water and wisk until creamy and smooth.....(no lumps)
add butter and wisk until combined and creamy.
add sweetzfree and wisk until smooth and creamy
add melted chocolate chips and wisk 1 last time until smooth and creamy.

Frost cake.

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.
