Thanks to recipe from school dinners that an old girl posted on the school FB page I have recreated a favourite pud in low carb form! And oh my word, it’s even better than I remember it. The one at school was hard (hence its nick name) but this comes out softer. No bad thing!
200g plain flour -> replace with 200g almond flour
100g melted butter -> lovely as it is
50g cocoa powder (not drinking chocolate that’s too sweet)
100g sugar -> sweetener of choice … to taste (dip your finger in to test!)
and I added in a few chopped nuts and as scant sprinkling of finely chopped unsweetened apricots.
Mix and press into a greased lined tin and bake at 170 C for about 20 mins.
Eat hot with cream or cold as a snack. That will set you up for an afternoon’s double chemistry! Or something to look forward to after HBOT (see previous blog post!)
[Sorry about the photo it doesn’t look very appetizing, but it didn’t at school as I remember. Appearances can be deceptive.]
