OK, I am obsessed with flax cakes made in the microwave, and I had a craving for german chocolate cake, so here it is! It's going to be hard to eat just one serving of this, but hey, it's a treat not a meal. :-) OK, I am obsessed with flax cakes made in the microwave, and I had a craving for german chocolate cake, so here it is!

Ingredients

    Bob's Red Mill Whole Ground Flaxseed Meal, 1/2 cup
    Cream Cheese, 3 oz, softened, divided
    Almond Extract, .25 tsp (remove)
    Coconut Milk, 2 tbsp (remove)
    Egg, fresh, 1 large, yolk and white separated
    Wondercocoa, 2 tablespoons
    1/3 cup DaVinci Sugar Free Syrup - German Chocolate Cake flavor
    Vanilla Extract, .25 tsp (remove)
    Shredded Coconut, raw, 4.5 tablespoons, divided
    several dashes salt
    Baking Powder, .5 tsp (remove)
    Pecans, 1/2 ounces, toasted and chopped
    EZ-Sweetz (liquid splenda), 2 drops

Directions

Blend 1 oz. cream cheese with egg white, almond & vanilla extract, 1 T of the coconut milk, & syrup. In a 2-cup measuring cup, mix flax, 1 tablespoon of the coconut shreds, cocoa, salt, and baking powder. Add liquids to dry ingredients and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, watching carefully. Cake is done when it is quite dry on top and is stable (does not fall when you open the microwave door) and this will take a bit of practice to determine exactly how much time your microwave needs - each is different. When cake is done, take out and immediately turn upside down onto a small cake platter and leave to cool, turning over once to allow other side to cool, and slicing horizontally into two pieces.

Meanwhile, make frosting:
put remaining two ounces of cream cheese, egg yolk, 2 tablespoons of coconut shreds & remaining tablespoon of coconut milk in a covered glass dish and microwave at very low for 1-2 minutes, just until melted & warm. Remove from microwave and blend thoroughly. Mix in pecans & ez sweetz or other sweetener to taste. Frost immediately - should be enough to generously frost both "layers" of the cake. Use the remaining coconut like snow on the frosted cake; you may need to use your hands to get the "snow" to stick on the cake.

Enjoy your sugarfree glutenfree healthy cake!

  • German chocolate cake has nothing to do with German cuisine. It was the last name of the guy who created the original recipe. - 1/25/12
