Keto Hershey's Chocolate Cake

Low Carb Hershey’s Chocolate Cake

So here’s the thing, I love chocolate. See there I admit it. What’s more I love Hershey’s chocolate, specifically when used in baked goods. So naturally there will be times I will crave it, even while on a low carb plan. This is why today I am sharing my Low Carb Hershey’s Chocolate Cake.

Usually, when I find myself craving chocolate it’s an indicator that my magnesium levels may be a little low. So I make go and take my supplement and proceed to the kitchen to experiment. It’s pretty incredible how our body can tell us what we need if we learn to tune in.

By now you know this girl is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and try to convert an old favorite into a healthier low carb version. What’s more because I get bored easily with foods, I find myself coming up with low carb recipes frequently. I guess that’s good for my family and anyone who follows this blog. Variety is something that has always compelled me to create in the kitchen. I will never understand how some people choose to eat the same foods over and over.

Allow me to present  to you my low carb version of the famous Hershey’s chocolate cake. My Low Carb Hershey’s Chocolate is inspired by the traditional recipe that is on the back of every Hershey’s Unsweetened Baking Powder container. I hope you will give it a try and pin it for future reference.

    I am seriously allergic to milk, cream, soft and hard cheeses, etc., but I can eat butter thank goodness (not enough milk in there to bother me). But whipping cream is definitely not a part of the equation for me. So, have you by any chance tried subbing coconut milk for the (water + whipping cream)?
  2. Do you know the carb count?
  3. Yum! In winter, chocolate cake really does hit the spot. But I am intrigued about the relationship between magnesium and chocolate cravings - I had no idea!
  4. I'm going to try it
  5. Looks like a great recipe :-)
