Just as you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs, you can’t make a chocolate cake without a few calories. With weight loss in mind, Corey’s Guilt-free Chocolate cake is almost diet-friendly.
250ml all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
125g cocoa powder
450g brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
250ml skim milk
4 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup of chopped nuts (your choice)
Preheat the oven to 175°C.
Lightly grease and line a baking pan
Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt and put to one side.
In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Whisk together the sugar, vegetable oil and skimmed milk and then stir in the vanilla extract.
Into this mixture, alternatively fold in the flour mixture and egg whites a little at a time to form a smooth batter.
Add the nuts if you wish
Pour the mixture into the pan and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes
Allow it to cool in the pan for five minutes and then tip out onto a wire rack.
Serve with mixed berries and crème fraiche
