I hope this isn't already here, but I couldn't face reading about so much chocolate and sugar to check more than a few pages.
It is also most Un Chalet like, being low fat, so it won't compare to some of the hugely chocolatey recipes I have read so far, however for a diet food it is quite nice I think. I've been eating loads of this and still lost weight so far, so it might please some other dieting chocolate cake addicts on CBB. It works well eaten as a dessert with raspberries/ Strawberries or with a Muller Light etc. It is a bit more like a brownie than cake perhaps sometimes, but it satisfies chocolate cravings!
For non Slimming world folk, you can have 15 syns a day, which are things like crisps chocolate, butter etc, so in theory I could eat half the cake below every day and still have some syns to spare.
The original recipe is here : http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-d ... ipe=523325
It doesn't keep well at all, and dries quite quickly, so would recomend making it and eating straight away. I've found it nicer with the amendment below. I usually make half this, since it is then only 10 syns for the cake under Slimming World Extra Easy.
100g All bran cereal (16 syns)
6fl oz boiling water
4 medium eggs
4 tbs drinking chocolate or cocoa powder (4 syns) Thus varies - 1 to 2 syns per tablespoon depending on cocoa powder. Actually also tasty with less cocoa if you want fewer syns/ calories)
24 tsp splenda / sugar based sweetener (Not other artificical sweeteners, or it will taste quite chemically)
Pour boiling water over the all bran in a large bowl and let it soak through. This is important. You are basically wanting All Bran to go back to bran mush. It's better not to be too liquid, but also you don't want any buts of hard all bran left.
After it has soaked to mush, mix thoroughly.
Add eggs (I whisk them separately first but it doesn't make much different), cocoa powder and splenda and beat the mixture until it's all combined.
Pour into a plastic bowl. You can use a pyrex one, but I find a microwaveable plastoc bowl works better.
The size and shape of the bowl affects the cooking time and fluffiness of the cake. It does rise so you don't want it right to the top if the bowl, but it doesn't rise much so bear that in mind in bowl choice!
Microwave on high for 6 minutes. I start checking it at about 5 minutes, and sometimes find 7 to 8 minutes better, but it varies with the bowl shape and size.
