Cherry season is here and in full swing! (in Aus) And with Chocolate Cake Day just around the corner on 27th January, what better way to celebrate than with a Choc Cherry Cake. This quick and easy cake is deliciously moist and packed with more than 13g of protein per serve. Without flour this cake has less than 5g of carbs per serve making this the perfect dessert (or breakfast, no judgment here) for those on a low carb or keto diet.
