Even the non-diabetics in my family will eat this... happily! Granular sucrolose is a heat stable sweetener that can be substituted for sugar in equal amounts.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9 inch pans. Stir the boiling water into the cocoa powder, and set aside to cool. In a separate bowl, sift together the cake flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the margarine and the granular sucrolose until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla, the cold water, and the cooled cocoa mixture.
  3. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add the cream of tartar and sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This is a VERY good low sugar recipe.What I liked best about this one is most low sugar recipes tend to cut out fat as well making a very dry cake, this one did not.

I used 2 1/4 cups of All-purpose flour for this one, and decided to substitute the sugar substitution with (you guess it) granulated white sugar, and finally, replaced the cream of tartar with 1 1/2 teaspoons of vinegar. It's rather dense, and tends to go well with coffee or tea. The cinnamon and chocolate did actually come together well in the end. The recipe is however flawed, as there is no indication of where the flour mixture is to be added (I added it along with the cold water/vanilla). Of course, no cake is complete without icing-- so I used a maple-syrup-meringue one for sandwiching and covering. Very good indeed.

Awful. I have made a lot of cakes from scratch and this recipe is needlessly complex and didn't rise properly. Not sure how it tastes but it looks so awful that I am not going to try it. Go with a standard chocolate cake recipe (i.e better homes and gardens) and sub sucralose for sugar instead.
