Chocolate cake. A classic and a favourite. This scrumptious cake is moist and has a gooey icing on top!
My choice of sweetener for this cake is rice malt syrup (RMS). I like using RMS for how it behaves in baking. I find it works better than honey, yet honey is my favourite go to for anything raw.
With all the mixed information out there, it’s important to note that RMS is still a sugar, containing maltose (2 glucose molecules stuck together) and glucose.
Fun Fact - Glucose is the main source of fuel for the brain and can be metabolised by all cells of the body. Fructose, on the other hand, is predominantly metabolised by the liver.
This is just a simple definition stating the scientific facts. SO much more could be said when defining sugar, but this is not the time or place.. because I get it, you’re here for the choccie cake!!
RSM it’s actually not very sweet (fructose is a lot sweeter than glucose). Therefore, this cake is not overly sweet and I’d recommend pairing it with the icing when you make it.
Note: for allergies & intolerances, this cake is also naturally free from dairy, lactose, gluten and wheat. It can also be made vegan by replacing the eggs with flax-eggs.
