Makes: 1 chocolate cake

  • 200g wholemeal flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 200g equivalent sugar substitute
  • 120g apple sauce or apple puree
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 160ml buttermilk
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • For the icing
  • 100g 70% dark chocolate
  • 125g skimmed milk

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:18min  ›  Ready in:33min 

  1. Put all the ingredients for the cake into a bowl and beat with a spoon or a mixer until just combined. Pour into two greased and lined sandwich tins.
  2. Bake in a preheated 180 C / Gas 4 oven for 15 to 18 minutes until the cakes spring back. Cool slightly, then tip out of the tins to cool completely.
  3. To make the icing, melt the chocolate in the microwave. Using a hand whisk, beat in the milk. It will take a few minutes but it should thicken up to form a spreadable icing.
  4. When the cakes are cool, assemble the cakes with the icing.


If you have no buttermilk, 170ml regular milk combine with 2 teaspoons lemon juice and it let sit for 10 minutes before using.
