1 heaping tablespoon of raw honey or 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla powder
Preheat oven to 160 degrees (or 320 F)
Break raw chocolate into small pieces. Mix them with butter in a bowl. Heat them in a "bain-marie" (water-bath)
Beat egg whites until light and fluffy, using an electric mixer
Beat egg yolks until foamy
When chocolate and butter are melted, allow to cool
Add vanilla powder and honey (or maple syrup) to the chocolate sauce.
Slowly pour the chocolate sauce onto the egg yolks, and mix well.
Add the egg whites to the mixture. Gently. Very important.
Pour the cake batter into a round oven dish.
Bake for 30 minutes or so.
This cake is best when chilled.
Enjoy with some raw cream and blueberries!
Egg whites should be avoided by people who have gut disorders and autoimmune diseases.
Replace those 8 eggs by 12-14 egg yolks.
Why? Egg whites contain a protein called LYSOZYME which is good at crossing the gut barrier. It forms monster molecules with random things in the gut, then transports them into the gut. As people with autoimmune diseases already deal with a leaky gut (= intestinal hyper-permeability), dealing with an extra transporter may be detrimental to their health. The effect is relatively small in those with a healthy digestive system.
For more information about LYSOZYME, read this post from Sarah Ballantyne.
Well. Brussel Sprouts remind me difficult times when I was 8 years old. I was eating at the school "cantine" in France. Brussel Sprouts were one of the most disgUUUUsting food served. They had a very unpleasant odour and they were mushy because overcooked. Unattractive as possible.
I have changed my mind. Maybe after reading this post you will change your mind too?
