Our low-carb/low-sugar chocolate cake is pure luxury - trust us, you'll want this in your recipe library!

If you like chocolate, then in all likelihood you like chocolate cake! Unlike most chocolate cakes, ours is not filled with carbs and sugar, but still wonderfully rich and sweet, making it the ultimate reduced calorie cake.

It's easier to make than any other cake too, as the cake part comes from our Brownie Mix - just add water and bake. The rest is just decoration! 

At little over 200 kcal and just 7g sugar per piece, this is the ultimate, indulgent cake for dieters of all stripes.
