Slug: Flourless Delight
Dessert lovers and carb watchers, get ready. In today's food feature, FTV's Michella Weng takes you to a restaurant which prides itself for its flourless chocolate cake.##
Some weight-conscious people are often looking for ways to cut down on the intake of carbohydrates. Well, we think we've found another way.
This is a place known for its Schwarzwaelder-Kirschtorte, or black forest cake.
這家餐廳的招牌菜就是 Schwarzwaelder-Kirschtorte 黑森林蛋糕
吃的感覺不會綿綿甜甜 很膩 我們的有顆粒狀 入口即化
The black forest cake comes from Germany, explained owner Jhou Shu-ying. What's special about ours is that it's completely flourless. Our ingredients are all imported from Europe and our cake's not too sweet and has texture. It melts in your mouth.
Instead of flour, they use hazelnut powder. Other essential ingredients are almond, chocolate and cocoa powder, eggs, sugar, cherry and cherry liqueur, and of course, lots and lots of fresh cream with dark chocolate shavings on top.

Now, while hazelnut powder contains significantly fewer carbs than flour, the cake is still not exactly low-fat. It sure looks worth trying though.
This restaurant-cafe also serves a variety of home-style German food and has a nice patio area which is just perfect as Spring is right around the corner.
