I absolutely adore dark chocolate. I absolutely adore salted caramel. So naturally it made perfect sense to combine the two. Recently I have been lowering my carbs in an effort to push my weightloss results further which has been working a treat – it finally pushed me over the 50kg mark that had been looming over my head for quite some time. I have been quite strict in my eating, not only did I abolish all sweet treats (yes, including chocolate!) but I have also gotten rid of kumara, fruit and anything with an excess of carbs! It’s been quite hard but my results are showing. Now that I am down to my last 15-20kg, it’s a tad harder, so the refinement has come at a good time.
Cue cravings. Yes we all have them, and we are human. I decided to make a primal treat for myself since it has been well over 2 months since I did any paleo baking for myself, and boy oh boy did I pick a winner! Having spent my Saturday in Wellington for the day doing a seminar, and resisting the might “Croinut” (Croissant x Donut!!!!!) I was really feeling like treating myself to something sweet. I have always adored salted caramel, and I wanted to pair it with something to give me that chocolatey hit. It has gone down well with both paleo and non-paleo folk and the uber dark velvety cake is perfectly complimented by the salty sweet caramel.
