Recipe: Fat Free Chocolate Cake

Della Says…

Chocolate Swiss Roll
Slightly different angle

What if I told you that this swiss roll is totally fat free. Sugar free too. In fact, you can eat the whole thing in one sitting without worrying about adding a single centimetre to your waistline.

It tastes quite nice too. In fact the first one I made disappeared before I could take any photos!

Front View
It’s actually a Slimming World recipe this one. To make it a chocolate cake you need to add a Cadbury’s Hi-light Sachet (sometimes called Options)
Ingredients

4 medium eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
a tub of quark (250g)
3 tbsp of sweetener (level not heaped)
Raspberries

Method
  1. Separate the 4 eggs into two bowls, yolks and whites
  2. Add ½ tub of quark, sweetener, vanilla essence & baking powder to the yolks
  3. Wisk into a creamy consistency and put to one side
  4. Take the egg whites and wisk until stiff
  5. Add half of the egg whites to the egg yolk mixture and stir in gently
  6. Then fold the other half of the eggs whites into the mixture
  7. Take an oven tray, line line with grease proof paper and spray with fry light
  8. Ensure you use plenty of fry light to avoid the cake sticking to the paper
  9. Pour the mixture on the tray/paper
  10. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown 180c (it doesn’t take very long to bake
  11. Whilst warm peel the paper from the cake (gently) and then lay cake out to cool
  12. I used a big knife underneath the paper to gently remove the cake from paper
  13. While cooling take the remainder of the quark and add sweetener to taste
  14. Spread the quark onto the cake (now cool) and add fruit you are using
  15. I used raspberries and added them evenly across the cake and squished them
  16. Then gently roll the cake up into a roll (like a swiss roll)
  17. Cut into 4-6 pieces – or eat the whole cake yourself
