Carolyn's 3 minute flourless chocolate cake recipe

Carolyn,

If you ever read this, a BIG thank you for that awesome recipe.

I've read all the variations on your thread, but the original recipe (from you!), is the best. The only variation I've done is to use 1/2 tsp baking powder instead of 1 tsp. I've tried the variation without baking powder, but you really need that baking powder to make the cake rise and be more cake-like.

Also, I used 1 tb. sweet butter instead of regular butter, only because I love the taste of sweet, unsalted butter.

Thank you so much for that recipe!

One thing I'd like to add is that I'm reading cocoa powder is so healthy for us, containing a lot of antioxidants. This applies only to alkali processed cocoa (like Hershey's), not the dutch process cocoa.

Wow, something so good that's good for us! Thanks Carolyn.

Thanks...I think this is a very easy recipe to tweak with whatever you have. I used sour cream instead of the butter the other night, but I think I need to try the unsalted butter.

I always make 2 using one recipe. Two custard cups..portion control.

I just made it this afternoon (one tiny tweak) and I really liked it a lot. Hubby did, too. My tweak was I added 1 tsp. oat fiber to give it a bit of body and flour flavor. VERY good recipe, Carolyn!

Yes, that's the recipe!

It is so good. Mine comes out like a chocolate sponge cake. I eat it very cold after being refrigerated a few hours. I love the texture. I tried adding a tsp. of psyllium to it for a different texture, but it came out too dense. I like mine to have that sponge cake texture, light and airy.

My husband loves spreading peanut butter on his, or dumping on a container of low carb yogurt for topping.

It is so easy and so good! You can really get creative!

I made this last night - it's SCRUMPTIOUS!!! I ate the whole thing while it was warm with SF whipped cream on the side. Next time, I will eat only half. I used unsalted butter with erythritol as sweetener. No AS aftertaste - perfect. I'm in love.
