Ginger spiced chocolate cake (recipe from Diabetic Living)









I saved  this recipe a long time (sometimes I get lost in many recipes) and now that I remember that I kept is by the Ginger, I love ginger preparations, I use it for sweet and savory.
And reading the recipe is really healthy and delicious.
I adapted from a recipe of Diabetic Living.
It is a cake that stays moist for several days.

2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup granulated sugar or sugar substitute
(like splenda or other)
1/2 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1 tablespoon chopped crystallized ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla
 
to garnish
powdered sugar
some berries

Cake de chocolate con jengibre











Esta receta la tenía guardada mucho tiempo y el otro día la encontré. Y al leerla la encontré muy buena y es apta para diabeticos (reemplazando el azucar)
Esta adaptada de una receta de Diabetic Living y ya se porque la había guardado me encanta que lleve jengibre.

Ingredientes

2 tazas de harina sin polvos de hornear
2/3 taza de chocolate sin azúcar
1 1/2 cucharadita polvos de hornear
1/2 cucharadita de bicarbonato de soda
1 cucharadita de jengibre en polvo
1/4 cucharadita de sal
1 1/4 taza de yogurt sin sabor
1 taza de splenda u otro sustituto de azucar
o 1 taza de azucar granulada
1/2 taza de aceite de maravilla o similar
1 cucharada de jengibre picado (si no encuentran agregar una 1/2 cucharadita más de jengibre en polvo)
1 cucharadita de vainilla
azúcar en polvo para espolvorear
berries para adornar
hojas de menta

Preparación

Precalentar el horno a 180°c.
Enmantequillar y enharinar un molde para queque.
Puede ser este tipo (los de silicona son los  mejores) o en un molde alargado.
Reservar.
En un bol grande mezclar la harina, polvos de hornear, cocoa o chocolate en polvo,bicarbonato, sal y jengibre en polvo.
En otro bol mezclar el yogurt, el sustituto de azucar (splenda u otro si se usa Iansa sugar se ocupa 1/2 taza porque endulza más) agregar el aceite,jengibre picado (sino usar en  polvo) los huevos y vainilla.Mezclar bien.
Unir los ingredientes secos con la mezcla de yogurt, unir bien con una cuchara  de palo o un batidor de alambre.
Vaciar la mezcla en el molde preparado, llevar a horno por 30 a 35 minutos o probar con un palito que al insertar salga seco.
Dejar enfriar en el mold epor unos 15 minutos.
Despues desmoldar con cuidado dando vuelta en un plato y espolvorear con azucar en polvo y adornar con berries. y hojas de menta.
