chocolate-sponge-pudding-300Most desserts contain a lot of sugar, but this chocolate sponge cake, made with unsweetened cocoa, is low in sugar and gluten free.


  • 2 free range organic eggs
  • 1 tablespoon organic Dutch process cocoa – unsweetened
  • 100 grams ground almonds
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons stevia
  • 25 grams melted butter
  • 100 grams low fat plain Greek yogurt to serve


Whisk the melted butter and the eggs and then add the dry ingredients. Place in a microwaveable bowl on high for 3 minutes or until the mixture is springy on top. Alternatively, pour the mixture into two greased muffin tins and cook in a pre-heated 200-degree oven for 15 minutes. Serve hot and covered with the yogurt.

Makes 2 servings
