A Thanksgiving Special

001 (6)

My husband doesn’t particularly like pumpkin pie, so this year I made him a special chocolate cake, low carb style.

I used a recipe off the internet for a flourless chocolate torte, combined it with my “fluffy buttercream icing, and topped it with a can of “Light, no Sugar Added” cherry pie filling.

The cake has 8 carbs

The total icing made with part cream, has 18

2 cups of cherry pie filling had 42.

The whole cake totals 68 carbs, divided by 12 makes one serving only a little over 5 carbs.

Since the cake is very dense and rich, a little goes a long way, so he will be a happy camper, savoring every morsel.

As far as I am concerned, any yummy dessert that’s under 10 carbs per serving is a winner.
