Chocolate Cake, Sugar and Flour Free (C2)
Recipe Source: Katie from Dashing Dish

Oh my gosh, this sounds great!

Click HERE for the complete recipe and instructions. Since the original website (roomag) has disappeared, we are putting the entire recipe here so as to not lose this wonderful creation!

Also note the following regarding using this on the 17 Day Diet:

* In C2, you will need to use almond milk and not the other option

* Do NOT use the frosting recipe on this recipe. It is not compliant.  Instead, you can use the frosting recipe here on my blog.  Click HERE for our 17DD-compliant frosting recipe.

Here is the recipe and instructions:

For Chocolate Cake:
3 Egg whites (or 1/2 cup egg whites from a carton)
1 cup Low fat plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
1 cup Skim milk (or almond milk/ milk of choice)
1 3/4 cups Oats (old fashioned oats, use gluten free if sensitive)
3/4 cup Unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp Cream of tartar (or 2 tsp. vinegar)
1-1/2 tsp Baking powder
1-1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1 cup Baking stevia OR 2 cups sweetener of choice that measures like sugar 1

For Frosting:
1/2 cup Low fat milk
1 Package sugar free chocolate pudding
1 Small tub Cool Whip or Tru Whip

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×9 in cake pan, or a round cake pan with non-stick spray.

Place all of the ingredients for the cake in a blender or food processor, and blend until oats are ground, and batter is smooth.

Pour cake batter into prepared baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes if using a 9×9 pan, or 25-30 minutes if using an 8×8 round cake pan, (or bake until a toothpick comes out clean.)

Meanwhile, to make the frosting, place all of the ingredients for the frosting in a large bowl and whisk until well combined, and frosting is smooth. Place frosting in fridge while cake is baking/cooling. When cake is completely cooled, frost the cake, and enjoy! Top with sliced strawberries or raspberries if desired! Store leftovers in fridge if there are any!

  1. Yikes -- the Roomag website appears to have been taken down. Let me see if I can find a link to the recipe elsewhere. Thanks for letting me know.

  2. I found this recipe on the Internet Archive ( http://archive.org/index.php ).


    It looks delicious!

  3. Oh my gosh thank you so much for that link!!!!!

  4. Why is this recipe under C1 category, yet it is C2? Is there a way to make this C1?

  5. It's C2 -- not C1, thanks for that; it's been corrected. The oats make it C2, which are used instead of flour -- so .... you'll need to wait for C2 to have this!
