My low fat cake!

Image

Ingredients

3½oz (85g) 70% chocolate (broken up)
12oz (350g) butter (in small chunks)
2oz (60g) cocoa (sieved)
3floz (90ml) boiling water (approx.)
14oz (400g) sugar
3 large eggs
7oz (200g) plain flour

Method

1. Melt butter and chocolate, in a bowl, over simmering water.
2. Make a paste of boiling water and cocoa. Remove the bowl from the water, pour the cocoa mix over the chocolate/butter and mix with an electric mixer.
3. Add the sugar, mix, and then mix in the eggs, one at a time.
4. Add the flour, mix, and then beat it on high speed for 1 minute.
5. Bake at 180C in a buttered and floured 9 inch spring form tin, lined on the bottom with parchment.
6. Check after about 30–35 mins. A big crack or two will appear when it is cooked but the cake will still wobble when shook. Depending on the oven, this may take longer.

To finish

7. Allow to cool for 20 mins – remove from spring form (do not turn upside down though until cold as it may leak).
8. Leave until cold before use. The cake should 'ooze' chocolate when cut.

It's seriously good and cuts into 16 to 20 pieces.

Oh, I lied about the low-fat!

I see you are putting everyone on a diet :lol: :lol:

You no low fat don't taste good, besides that it keeps you slim and fragile. I would say have a beer and dam the calories ---- Oh, I forgot -- you wanted Bud Light. :roll: :lol: :lol:
But what do I know

Bud Light would be nice to try - I've never had it as I only drink 'Lager Free' alcohol! What UK brewers term as Lager is nothing like what's served in mainland Europe and isn't worth drinking. However, as far as I'm concerned there are no 'bad' beers - just some better than others! :lol: :lol:

As for the cake - you don't have to stick to one slice, and the strawberries mean that it's an healthy option, don't they? :lol:
