NO FAT valentine's day Heart Cake

Can't say it's my favourite holiday tomorrow - once you've endured peppero/pocky day, valentines day, and white day, it doesn't hold very much sentiment anymore - but for all those who don't want to spend money on store bought cakes and chocolate, I think I have just the thing for you.

Chocolate Heart cake, anyone?

(p.s. it has no fat! Which makes it a chiffon cake base, but don't worry it's not scary or hard!)

Ingredients:


100g plain flour
125g caster sugar 
25g cocoa powder
4 large eggs

4tbsp icing sugar
284ml double cream, whipped.


Method:

1 - preheat your oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4 
2 - grease your heart shaped tin(s) - I got mine from Wilko's
3 - sift together flour & cocoa powder
4 - put eggs and sugar into a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Do not let the water boil or touch the bowl!!!
5 - whisk the eggs & sugar together until thick, foamy, pale and tripled in volume - preferably with an electric hand whisk because if you're ace like me and don't have one it'll take a lot longer than 10 minutes... who needs arm day, eh?
6 - remove bow from pan and whisk for 2 more minutes until cool
7 - fold in flour and cocoa using a metal spoon - try to keep as much air as possible in the mix!
8 - pour mixture into cake tin(s) and bake for 25 minutes until sides have shrunk away from the tin/it's springy to the touch
9 - turn out onto a wire rack and leave to cool
10 - dust with some icing sugar!
11 - mix 2 tablespoons of icing sugar into the cream
12 - decorate your heart! 


I'm not a massive fan of Chiffon cakes myself, but I was determined to try and make at least one this year - so success!! It tastes divine, fyi - so if you make this for anyone special tomorrow, it'll definitely be appreciated!

What are you doing for Valentine's Day this year?
