Of course this low fat summer chocolate pudding cake can be enjoyed at any time of the year and not just summer!

In fact, normally I’ll make a pudding of sorts every Sunday evening for Lady Lynne and I to go with our Sunday curry whatever the time of year!

If there’s any other occasion / excuse to share baked goods with family, friends or relatives then I love to take the opportunity to bake something.

As I’ve said before there’s nothing quite like home baking.

I made this cake for my work team at our weekly meeting.

It came out really moist and tasty, and a team member pointed out that actually, with a little bit of cream it would make an ideal pudding.

And they were right, so I renamed it!

Ingredients
  • 4 egg whites
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 75 g caster sugar
  • 1 large eating apple , peeled, cored and finely grated
  • 100 g self-raising flour
  • 50 g cocoa powder sifted
  • 250 g raspberries to decorate cake
  • 50 g icing sugar sifted
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 170C
  2. Grease 20cm cake tin with a few sprays with the cooking spray.
  3. In a stand mixer, whisk the 4 egg whites and salt to peaks.
  4. In a large bowl, hand whisk the 2 whole eggs, vanilla extract and caster sugar together until combined and the sugar has dissolved.
  5. With a plastic spatula gradually fold the apple, self-raising flour and cocoa powder into the sugar mixture.
  6. Gradually fold the egg white peaks into the sugar mixture, keeping the mixture as light and fluffy as possible.
  7. Carefully spoon the cake mixture into the greased cake tin.
  8. Bake for 30 – 40 minutes. Test the cake after 30 minutes with a skewer. If the skewer comes out clean then the cake is cooked.
  9. Cool on a wire rack.
  10. Once cooled, remove the cake from the cake tin and cut it in half horizontally.
  11. Mash 100g of the raspberries with some icing sugar to make a kind of “jam”. Spread this mixture between the cake halves.
  12. Mix some of the icing sugar with water to make a weak icing and spread over the top of the cake.
  13. Decorate the top of the cake with the remaining raspberries. Allow the icing to harden.

I love making these types of cakes with no fat (butter/lard etc.). Of course they’re not calorie free, but certainly there’s a reduction if you had used butter / lard.

Don't feel guilty or deny yourself a nice pudding just because you are calorie counting. Enjoy this, my low fat summer chocolate pudding cake with just a drizzle of cream.

Plus, because I removed the fat, I felt it was OK to indulge a little with a couple of tablespoons of single pouring cream. But equally you could use a little no fat Greek yogurt.

Hope you like this tasty pudding as much as we do, I’d love to hear what you think below in the comments!
