I thought I would post something different today.
I enjoy cooking but I don’t always seem to have the time to cook. Today, I decided to bake a cake from scratch. Since we are watching our carb intake, I searched online for a “flourless” cake recipe and found one on a flour company website. My first thought was, “What? Why does this flour company have a recipe for a flourless cake?” Seemed odd, but it had good reviews so I gave it a try.
I glanced through the directions and decided to change a few things. For example, the recipe called for “bittersweet chocolate,” “3 large eggs,” “unsalted butter,” and optional “vanilla extract” and “espresso powder.” I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, egg whites from a carton, salted butter, imitation almond extract, and an instant Mocha mix.
The instructions also said that I had to “briefly” blend the batter and “mix just to combine.” I noticed that the mixture was lumpy from the unsweetened cocoa powder that I used so I grabbed my hand mixer and beat the batter on the “high” setting for several minutes. The batter became fluffy.
I poured the mixture into the prepared pan and baked it for 25 minutes at 375 degrees. When the cake was finished baking, it was moist and it had the consistency of “regular cake.” My family loved it. I am so happy that I found this recipe.
