With all credit to Lylah Rosa, this has been adapted enough that I'm going to put my name on this version.
I got up early this morning to make these, and found the single saucepan in the house that is up to the job, the 3 qt., sitting on the stove crusted with dried mac-n-cheese. Since it's soaking a bit, I'm blogging.
Grease and flour an 8" cakepan, set aside. Set oven at 350.
In saucepan over low heat:
melt 1/3 cup + 2T margarine/butter. (not water-added kind)
6T unsweetened cocoa
Turn off heat. Beat in:
1 cup stevia
Sift together and add:
3/4 cup flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking powder.
Optional: add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans.
Pour into cake pan, bake 30-35 minutes. Done when top crust will take slight imprint from thumb. If you wait for the dry toothpick test, will overbake. Cool in pan an hour. Cut and serve.
Carbs: whole recipe has 66 grahms of carbs. Divide by number of servings.
I'll be back later with taste test. Possibly after the auction.
