Graham's Chocolate Sponge Pudding.

Having worked as an Engineer most of his life, it was after Graham retired he found his true calling. While meddling around in his kitchen and looking for the perfect after dinner low carb dessert, he invented the now legendary, lowcarb chocolate sponge pudding. Overnight he became one of the most sort after chefs in the world, and to this day, he is the only man ever to hold five Michelin Stars. Ladies and Gentlemen, I take great pleasure in presenting to you, the Chocolate Sponge Pudding Le Magnifique!

25g ground almonds
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
4 heaped teaspoons of xylitol
I large egg
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon double cream
1 level tablespoon of cocoa

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Melt the butter I used a Pyrex jug, add the egg, cream, then add the dry ingredients and mix. Microwave in a 700watt for one minute 20 seconds.

Thous cup microwave muffins are such a great idea,a great breakfast food for the people who want to have something else instead of usual egg-tasting fare, however not naturally thin people could find the need to exercise caution with nut-based cookies and cakes.

I found out that using real oven and totally skipping on a baking powder and relying only on whipped egg whites as a leavening agent allowed me to bake a better tasting sponge cake for a special occasion than using a microwave. It took much longer - 45 minutes. Almond cakes have an advantage of always staying fresh, unlike wheat ones.

Hi Galina, I'm a skinny T2 but though it doesn't apply to me I agree the pudding will be high in calories and that needs to be considered for those who need to lose weight.
