About this recipe:As most of the desserts I make, this one is a bit of my imagination. I just needed a dessert, but one which is an absolute meal replacer for breakfast or after a workout. Probably, the cake would be just as tasty using plain cream cheese or mascarpone instead of curd, but I wanted it possibly less caloric. It's moist and tastes like a real chocolate temptation!
Beat the eggs in a bowl and add all other ingredients. Put the baking powder in last, and leave the mixture for 20 minutes so the oats can soak.
Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Grease a 30cm cake tin.
Take a blender and blend the mixture in the bowl until smooth and looking like melted chocolate. Otherwise, it won't become such a dense cake and there will be lumps from the curd. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin.
Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted near the centre comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
You can serve it with cream or ice cream if you want a real indulgence.
Make it healthier
Honey can be replaced by some diabetic sweetener if necessary. You can also add dried fruits and nuts if you prefer.
Not bad,but takes more like 40 mins to cook! After 20 mins it was still seriously gooey! Taste seems ok, better than a lot of other protein cakes I've tried. Gonna tweak it a bit and try again. - 25 Jun 2013
