1. Rich Chocolate Torte

Preparation time: 22 mins
Cooking time: 67 mins
Servings: 16


1 tablespoon + 1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup walnuts
3/4 cup sugar
5 omega-3-enriched eggs, separated
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup light sour cream 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Coat a 20 cm or 23 cm round springform pan with cooking spray and dust with 1 tablespoon cocoa powder. Combine the walnuts and 1/4 cup of the sugar in a blender or food processor. Pulse until finely ground. Set aside.
2. Beat the eggwhites and cream of tartar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on high until foamy. Gradually add the remaining sugar, beating, until stiff peaks form.
3. With the same beaters, beat the egg yolks in another bowl until thick. Add the sour cream, melted chocolate, cinnamon and remaining cocoa and beat to blend well. Fold in the walnut mixture. Stir a quarter of the eggwhites into the chocolate mixture. Fold in the remaining whites in 2 batches.
4. Pour into the pan and bake for 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool the cake completely in the pan on a rack for at least 4 hours. (The cake is best made a day ahead and stored, covered, in the pan until serving.) Release the sides of the pan and cut the torte into 16 slices.

    Well I am not going to read anymore recipes after being blown away by the first one, 3/4 cup sugar ? Yes portion size is important, but no way this recipe. So I can eat anything is what I make of this article, as long as portion size is ok ? What about other factors ? Sorry this is definately not a diabetic recipe however you want to look at it, it is a recipe of indulgence maybe once in a blue moon.

    This is a joke , right? 3/4 of a cup of sugar for diabetics...not even Stevia? Just because something uses reduced fat and reduces the portion size, it does not mean it is low GI/suitable for diabetics! Only one recipe in the whole batch uses a sugar substitute and it would be very interesting to see the blood sugar result after eating that! Wise up!!!!

    Remember, if you have Type 2, it's all YOUR fault.
