Mocha Frappuccino Slice

I absolutely positively LOVE chocolate! This is the result of an
experiment which did not work, but after a few tries I made the
ultimate rich gooey chocolate "cake"....It is oh so easy and oh so good!

Mocha Frappuccino Slice (Almost Level 1)

1 cup hot water
4 teaspoons decaf instant coffee granules
1/2 cup sugar substitute (I use Whey Low)
1/2 cup brown sugar substitute (I use Whey Low Gold)
2 sticks of butter (1 cup)
7 oz sugar free milk chocolate cut into pieces
9 oz sugar free dark chocolate cut into pieces
8 eggs

Line a 9" round cake pan with buttered parchment paper and pre-heat
oven to 350.

Mix the hot water and coffee granules. Pour into a saucepan, add the
butter and sugar substitutes. Mix and stir occasionally until boiling.
Take off the heat.

Add the chocolate pieces and stir into the hot mixture until they have
softened, melted and combined. Whisk in the eggs and mix until smooth.

Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Place the cake pan into a
large roasting pan and fill halfway with water. Bake at 350 for one hour.

Remove the cake from the water and cool on wire racks. When cooled,
run a knife around the outside of the cake and turn out onto a cake
plate. Remove the parchment paper and then chill.

Slice, smile and serve!
