Healthy Dark Chocolate Cake Recipe

Date:

Losing weight doesn’t mean starving yourself or restricting yourself to bland foods. You’ll find a variety of low-calorie recipes, from soups to desserts to main dishes (yes, it’s true – even on a diet, you can still enjoy sweets).

For example, many people don’t know that chocolate is actually good for you. It comes from plants and contains 8 times more antioxidants than strawberries, which helps fight the aging process. It also contains serotonin and stimulates endorphins, which makes you feel happy and optimistic in your endeavors (which, in this case, may include weight loss). The key is to enjoy this wonderful product in moderation.

Here is a basic recipe for a healthy dark chocolate cake. To make it, you’ll need one and a half cups of wholemeal flour, a quarter cup of almonds (crushed), 5 tablespoons of cocoa powder, a teaspoon of baking powder, a quarter teaspoon of salt, 4 oz. finely grated beet (you can just peel the beet and run it through a blender), skim or low-fat milk, 2 tablespoons of black coffee (or you can use its equivalent by dissolving instant coffee in hot water), 3 large eggs and a cup of sugar.

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl: flour, almonds, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

In another bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar until they become frothy. Gradually add the beet, buttermilk, and coffee and mix well. Add the dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Make sure there are no lumps in the batter.

Pour the batter into a non-stick baking dish (or a regular baking dish lined with wax paper). Also, bake at 150C for about 35 minutes. You can check if the cake is ready by poking it with a toothpick. If there are pieces of cake stuck, then they should still be in the oven.

When the cake is ready, let it cool for about 10-15 minutes and prepare the icing. For this, you need half a cup of dark chocolate pieces, 2 tablespoons of honey, and black coffee. In a non-stick pan, mix all the ingredients on low heat. When it is well mixed, remove the pan from the heat and spread the glaze all over the cake with a spatula.

If you’re not a big fan of frosting, you can skip this step and serve the cake bakery as is, with tea or coffee. It’s a surprisingly tasty dish that doesn’t contain as much fat as the store-bought versions. Judging by the measurements, the cake is designed for 10 people and the calorie count is 222 calories per serving.
