Chocolate Layer Cake

Who doesn’t love a multi-layer chocolate cake slathered in tons of sweet chocolaty frosting? The problem with most cakes that fit this description is that they don’t exactly love you back. Oh sure, they taste great and give you a fantastic sugar-high for a few hours. But then you crash and come back to reality and realize that somewhere, somehow, you are going to pay the price for all those empty carbs.

I’ve been craving a huge, rich chocolate cake ever since we took my daughter out for her birthday dinner. When the restaurant found out what we were celebrating, they of course brought her a slice of chocolate cake to end her meal. My husband and other kids all shared in this sugary windfall, and I will admit I had a bite too. Which, of course, only spurred me on to make a just-as-decadent-but-without-all-the-carbs version of my own.

This might be the low carb chocolate cake to end all chocolate cakes. Lovely dark chocolate sponge layers with an airy but rich whipped ganache frosting. This frosting is so good, I may never make buttercream again!

    Just wondering how important the whey protein powder is, and what could I replace it with?

    • Swerve

      Hi Tamara, The protein powder helps give the cake a light and fluffy texture. You can leave it out, but you will have a more dense cake.
