Low Carb Chocolate Goddess Cake
This. Now. Heaven. The reason why I call this ‘Goddess Cake’ is that it really is heavenly. Technically as it’s made from nuts, it’s classified as a ‘Torte’. It’s light, but dense, chocolatey and moist. A small slice is really satisfying and it tastes entirely decadent and amazing. Serve it up at a dinner party and no-one will ever know it contains a whopping 7 grams of protein per slice and just 1.8 grams of carbs! THIS IS INSANE!
