Ingredients

  • 12 tablespoons (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, cut into chunks
  • 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup stevia baking blend OR your choice of a sweetener for baking
  • 1 1/2 cups hot boiling water
  • low carb whipped cream, for serving (optional)
  • mint leaves, for serving (optional)

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Lightly grease a 2-quart oval au gratin dish and set aside.
  • Combine butter and chopped chocolate in a saucepan; set over low heat and stir until melted. Set aside to cool.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the heavy cream and vanilla.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine almond flour, cocoa powder, and salt; whisk until thoroughly incorporated. 
  • Place eggs in the bowl of your stand mixer with the whisk attachment; beat on high speed for 1 minute. 
  • Gradually add in stevia/sweetener and continue to beat on high speed for 5 minutes, or until thick and pale yellow.
  • Turn mixer speed to low and slowly add in the melted butter and chocolate mixture. Mix until combined.
  • Gradually add in the almond flour mixture; mix until thoroughly incorporated.
  • Set the mixer at medium speed and slowly add in the heavy cream mixture; continue to beat for 1 minute, or until thickened.
  • Transfer the cake batter to previously prepared baking dish.
  • Grab a sheet pan and pour the hot boiling water in it.
  • Set the baking dish in the water bath.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until cake is set, puffed up, and has reached 160F in the center.
  • Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes. Cake will deflate. 
  • Scoop out cake into serving bowls.
  • Optionally, garnish with low carb whipped cream and mint leaves.
  • Serve.

Notes

  • Scoop this cake straight out of the baking dish and serve it as is, or add a tablespoon of low carb whipped cream on top.
  • This chocolate fudge cake tastes best while still warm.
