Fabulous Chocolate Loaf
Anyone with Celiac disease must avoid the gluten in wheat and most other cereals and there are other people whose digestive systems do not tolerate wheat. So here?s a delicious chocolate dessert which they and everybody else can enjoy. Good quality chocolate contains no animal or hydrogenated fats and is rich in the natural feel-good and anti-stress chemical Theobromine. This recipe also provides iron, potassium and protein, so is a real mental and physical booster.
75 g unsalted butter ? try using olive oil, prune puree or Vitaquell margarine if you need dairy-free as well
100 g Green & Black?s dark organic chocolate
5 eggs, separated
75 g Fruisana fruit sugar
75 g ground almonds
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 5. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a double saucepan. Whisk the egg yolks and Fruisana till thick then mix with the chocolate, together with the ground almonds. Whisk the white?s then fold into the chocolate using a metal spoon. Grease and flour (use rice flour) a 1 lb loaf tin and pour in the mixture. Put the tin in a deep baking tray half filled with water and bake for 45 minutes. Serve cool with strawberries and a sprig of mint.
Fruit sugar has the same number of calories as ordinary sugar but it?s twice as sweet, so you need half the quantities or less. What?s more it has a very low glycemic index making it absorbed more slowly into the bloodstream to provide slow release energy and avoid the swings of blood sugar level normally caused by ordinary sugars.
