Black Forest Gateau : Low Carb : Perfect For Christmas Festivities





... now how about a lovely slice of Black Forest Gateau, can be perfect for the forthcoming Christmas and Seasonal Festivities - here is our low carb recipe idea.

Ingredients:
100g ground almonds
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon of melted butter
2 tablespoons of double cream
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
100 grams of pitted black cherries

Method:
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Melt the butter I used a Pyrex jug, add the eggs, cream, then add the dry ingredients and mix. Pour into a 6" microwave proof dish. Microwave in a 700watt for 3 minutes. Allow to cool and cut in half. Spread on extra thick cream and 100 grams of pitted black cherries. Serves 6.

All the best Jan

Many people say how old fashioned Black Forest Gateau is but I don't care, I love it.

Looks delightful but even on Christmas I'll stick with my cheese/fruit/crackers tray for dessert.

Hi Jan, I certainly enjoy reading your posts (and Eddie's also)... There is so much bad information out there --- Diabetes Type II is ALL OVER this country... It's due to obesity --which is unbelievable... Fast Food eating, no exercise, not enough rest, etc etc etc........

Thanks for all of your interesting recipes... We CAN eat healthy --if we just take time to do it... The Black Forest Gateau looks YUMMY.

I published a blog post today--so check it out when you have time.

Hugs and Merry Christmas,
Betsy

I really wish I had a piece of this, Jan. It looks amazing. Not sure if you know this, but CHEERIES are my very favorite fruit. :) I hope you are having wonderful days leading up to Christmas.

Oh my, this looks good! A dessert recipe beginning with Black Forest conjures up memories of the cake I spent all day making years ago out of a German cookbook.
