TWO-MINUTE HEALTHY CHOCOLATE CAKE--BONNIE'S

I have been working on this gluten-free, low carb chocolate cake for some time, and it is now ready to share. It looks and tastes and has the texture of a regular gluten cake! It is high protein. It is moist, tender and scrumptious. You won't believe you made it in your microwave! Best of all, it is healthy eating! My husband loves it, and he doesn't like anything gluten-free. He gave it a two-thumbs up! Enjoy!
