We need NOT deprive ourselves! God wants us to be happy and enjoy life! Many folks get stuck in the “diet” mode and forget that on The Shepherd’s Code plan, or KETO plan we get to satisfy our sweet tooth! Prepare this cup of yum in 5 minutes:
Chocolate Sponge cake in a cup
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1teaspoon pure vanilla
1 Tablesppon heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon Instant coffee
Sweetener of choice 1 teaspoon Stevia
Whip eggs with a fork until light and frothy. (I use a stick blender.) Add vanilla, instant coffee, heavy cream and sweetener. Continue to whip until dissolved. Add cocoa and whip again. (It will be powdery so use a tall sided mixing bowl. Scrape into buttered soup size mug. (Batter will be runny.) Microwave until done. Experiment with cooking times, as all microwaves are different. I cook mine for 75 seconds. Let cool for 5 minutes.
Chop up 1/2 of one square of 85% chocolate with 2 Tablespoons of heavy cream. Cook in microwave for 30 seconds, cover and let stand for 2 minutes. Stir. You can add 1/4 tsp Stevia to the ganache for extra sweetness if desired. Pour over cake. GO AHEAD and top with a dollop of whipped cream, make it visually satisfying too…enjoy warm or cold!
