So after that emotional post on monday I decided to go for it and kicked that "dementor" out of my life and I instantly feel better. Ok, so kicking that thing out actually required quite a bit of chocolate cake but that is OK!
Because guess what? It is fructose free! and actually gluten-free as well! So because it was actually a bit stressful even though totally the right thing to so, I think eating all the cake is totally acceptable.
And it gets even better! Only 5 ingredients, oooooh yes!
It's from my fructose intolerance book and I have loved it from the first time I baked it. And so far, everyone who has tried it really loved it! And was so surprised that it is fructose and gluten free and is made up of only 5 ingredients!
5 INGREDIENT CHOCOLATE CAKE
Preheat your oven to 180°/160°
The ingredients are for a 26cm springform tin
Melt 100g DARK CHOCOLATE (I like using at least 70% chocolate) and 100g BUTTER
Separate 3 EGGS, beat the egg white a little and set the yolk on the side
Mix 140g GROUND NUTS (sometimes I use almonds, sometimes hazelnuts, whatever you like really) with 120g DEXTROSE SUGAR
Mix in the butter chocolate mixture with the nuts and sugar
Add the yolk
Carefully add the egg whites
Spread it out in the tin and in the oven it goes for about 30 min, but I tend to always check 10 minutes before the time given by the recipe, just in case
If you want to make this cake really fancy, and I have done this before so I know it is LUSH, wait for the cake to cool down. While it does mix like 400g of Nutella with 250-300g of Cream Cheese (should be around these measurements, but just keep trying until it tastes good - so a GOOD amount of Nutella for an amazing taste). Spread it on top of your cake and put it in the fridge for it to set. Now you have an amazing cheesecake that will make your loved ones drool and ask for more.
