  • Melt the butter and allow to cool slightly before whisking into the egg. Add the double cream and liquid Stevia and whisk well to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, baking powder, sweetener and cocoa powder (make sure you have combined it well). Grease two ramekins. This is what you should have ready:

  • Divide between the two ramekins.
  • Cooking one at a time, place the ramekin into the centre of the microwave, and cook on high for 1 minute 30 seconds.
  • Add a dollop of extra-thick cream while still warm and dust over a little cocoa powder to make pretty. The texture is fantastic and just like moist cake.
