SUGAR FREE CHOCOLATE CAKE

Hello everyone! Recently, I and my husband celebrated our second wedding anniversary. We made a pact this year that we are not really going to buy presents/ gifts for each other on our anniversaries but would try to make the day special in other ways. We tried to do just that. Now, since I am on keto, I decided to give myself a little slack at least for our anniversary dinner. Another reason for doing this was because my husband has a huge sweet tooth and I knew he would absolutely love it if I made a chocolate cake for him. And of course, I would HAVE to have that cake! Love comes before everything else. Doesn’t it?! So I decided to make this sugar free chocolate cake, which is not exactly keto but still healthier than a normal cake.

While this cake and a small love-filled video for my husband was the ‘surprise’ from my side, him being the amazing planner had planned a surprise romantic dinner cruise for us! On the river Willamette. I don’t think I could have asked for a better surprise. These are the kind of memories that I want to make with him. I will share more details of the cruise in my upcoming posts.

Let us talk a little about the recipe and the ingredients. Since, the cake is sugar-free, you are going to have to have a substitute for the sugar. You can’t have a non-sweet cake, right!? I used Splenda in this cake. It is zero calorie, sugar free sweetener. There was absolutely no difference in the taste.

For tis cake, the frosting I used was a Whipped cream cheese frosting. I promise you, I came up with this particular recipe and ratios on my own and I was ecstatic with how it turned out. Stay tuned for the recipe in the next post.

Without further ado, let’s jump right to the recipe of this amazingly easy Sugar free Chocolate Cake.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F or 180C. Prepare your baking pan. I used a silicon pan, so I just sprayed it with some non stick spray. If you are using a metal pan, grease it with butter/oil and line with a parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix in the flour, cocoa powder, splenda, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs lightly. Add the milk, the coffee, the oil and vanilla extract. Whisk together well.
  4. Now make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix together slowly and gently. DO NOT overmix. You may some lumps in the batter which is perfectly fine.
  5. Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake for about 40-45 minutes if you are baking the whole batter in one pan. If using two pans, divide the batter equally into the two pans and bake for 27-32 mins.
  6. Remove from the oven once a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out NOT CLEAN, but with a few crumbs stuck to it.
  7. Let them cool on a wire rack and then they are ready to assemble!
Recipe Notes
  • This recipe can be used for 2 9-inch round baking pans as well.
  • All the ingredients used should be at room temperature.
