½ sachet Castelló baking powder
If you keep this dessert in the fridge, I recommend that you take it out a little before you eat so that the cake becomes a little softer. I have to tell you that the texture is dense and firm; it's not a soft cake like the earlier chocolate cake I showed you. It's a delight that you could easily consume in one sitting, but it's important not to be greedy.
As you see, it's made with butter; once in a while I like to prepare a cake like this because it is really very satisfying, not only because of the wholemeal flour. It is so rich that you'll really be satisfied with a small piece.
As much as you may fancy these sugar-free desserts, it's better to eat them once in a while and in moderation.
And don't even think about replacing butter with margarine; I prefer a good butter to any margarine. As we are going to ingest saturated fatty acids, we should do this with a basic product that is mechanically extracted from the cream.
The cake can be made with olive oil, but I have to admit that the texture is nowhere near the same; so make the chocolate cake as published, but with wholemeal flour, it's wonderful.
As you see, this is prepared with stevia, but bear in mind that the 85% table chocolate contains sugar too, a small amount compared with other chocolates, but you should be aware of this if you are diabetic. It also contains fat and some hydrates.
But as I said before, better eat a little and not very often.
The fruit is fabulous in this cake, the contrast of the acidity with the chocolate will delight you. You can also use other fruits such as raspberries or blackberries.
I try to prepare this cake when I have guests; this way I avoid the temptation. But you can eat it as a mid-morning snack or for breakfast if you want to start the day with lots of energy.
It's a calorie-rich dessert, provides a good amount of calcium and vitamin D, but also contributes a higher percentage of saturated fat and cholesterol.
This is the clear example why a dessert should be wholemeal but it is not advisable to eat it every day. Because it has more fibre, does not have sugar and the two eggs provide a good amount of protein, it is a lighter dessert than others.
But I insist, only in moderation.
