NO BAKE (Except for Base) CHOCOLATE CAKE (Lingots au Chocolat) – Low Carb, Gluten Free, Sugar Free

I don’t know if this treat is actually famous in France or not. I just saw the concept on some Japanese websites and decided to make a low carb version.

It seems that Lingots au Chocolat means “Gold Ingots of Chocolate”. Yes, it’s really an ingot of chocolate. No bake chocolate is literally placed on top of chocolate brownie base. Although, when making, you actually place the base on top of the chocolate.

This is really a decadent chocolate cake that everybody will love.

(Comment added on October 21, 2018): It’s not completely no bake as you can see (that’s why I stated “except for base” up there in the post. ) This is mostly because I’m not a native English speaker and it’s hard to name recipes!

Ingredients

Brownie Base

  • 2 oz Unsweetened Baking Chocolate, Chopped (56 g)
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream (120 cc)
  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour (50 g)
  • 2 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tsp Stevia Powder
  • A Pinch Sea Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Chocolate

  • 1 1/3 cups Heavy Cream (320 cc)
  • 5 oz Unsalted Butter, Cubed (140 g)
  • 7 oz Unsweetened Baking Chocolate, Finely Chopped (200 g)
  • 1 tbsp Liquid Stevia
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp Rum (Omit if you want to go completely sugar free. Also, you can sub red wine.)

Topping

  • 1 tsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

Instructions

Brownie Base (Follow the YouTube video above)

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 C / 375 F. Fold parchment paper to the size of the top of your loaf pan. (* I used an 8.5 x 3.6 inch (22 x 9 cm) pan, but an 8 x 4 inch (20 x 10 cm) pan also works.)
  2. Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan over low heat. Bring to a simmer and turn off the heat.
  3. Add the unsweetened chocolate. Stir until melted and smooth.
  4. In a large bowl, add the almond flour, cocoa powder, stevia powder and salt. Whisk well. Add the chocolate mixture and mix well. Then, add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix well.
  5. Place the folded parchment paper in a dish/pan that is a bit bigger than the folded lines. Pour the brownie mixture within the folded lines and level out. (It’s okay to go over the folded lines.)

  6. Bake for about 15 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool completely. (Preferably refrigerate for a few hours after reaching the room temp for it to be hard so that it will be easier to handle when placing it on top of the chocolate.)

  8. When cooled, cut the edges so that it will fit into the top of the loaf pan.

Chocolate

  1. Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan over low heat. Bring to a simmer and add the butter. Turn off the heat when the butter is half melted.
  2. Add the unsweetened chocolate and liquid stevia. Leave a couple of minutes. Then, stir slowly until melted and smooth.

  3. Add the vanilla and rum and mix.
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Smooth the surface.
  5. Refrigerate for about 10 - 20 minutes, or until when the surface starts to solidify.

  6. Remove from the fridge and place the brownie base onto the chocolate. Attach well.

  7. Chill overnight.

To Serve

  1. Remove from the fridge. Invert on a cutting board and then carefully remove the parchment paper.

  2. Dust with the cocoa powder.

  3. To slice, let sit out at room temperature for about 30 minutes (or less when the room temp is hot) before slicing. Heat a knife under hot water and wipe off the excess water before each slice.

  4. To serve, after removing your slices from the fridge, let sit out at room temperature for 10 - 30 minutes (depending on the room temp and your liking).

Recipe Notes

Keep refrigerated. To serve, after removing your slices from the fridge, let sit out at room temperature for 10 - 30 minutes (depending on the room temp and your liking).

    Can I sub something else for the rum? I cannot stand rum, any suggestions?

      Thanks for stopping by!
      You can simply skip the rum if you don’t like it. I’m not a big fan of rum (or any alcohol…) myself either to be honest :p

    2. Keto Diet Channel says:

      Totally slipped my mind. I believe red wine will probably be a good sub.

  2. What size loaf pan?
    Thanks

      I used an 8.5 x 3.6 inch (22 x 9 cm) pan, but an 8 x 4 inch (20 x 10 cm) pan also works (may get a bit flatter than mine though).

  3. These are great recipes thanks so much

    This looks delicious and I’m looking forward to trying it, but I’m a little unclear about the need to trim the edges of the brownie base. Are you using two different sizes of pan? My loaf pan flares a little bit wider at the top, but even when using a straight-sided pan it should still fit if you’ve baked in that pan, shouldn’t it? I’d appreciate a bit of clarification so I can be sure it’ll turn out properly, with nice presentation like yours. Thanks so much!

    1. Keto Diet Channel says:

      English is not my first language so I hope I’ll be able to clarify your question!
      First of all, if the baked brownie perfectly fits into your pan, of course you don’t need to trim the edges 🙂

      I folded the parchment paper to the outer size of the pan, which is of course a bit bigger than the inner size. And when pouring and baking the batter, the batter usually spreads a little and goes over the folded line of the parchment paper. And I placed and baked the brownie base in a different dish which is a bit bigger than the loaf pan because most loaf pans flare wider at the top, so if you bake the brownie in the bottom of the loaf pan, the brownie should be a bit smaller when placing on top of the chocolate mixture. Also, this amount of chocolate doesn’t fill up the loaf pan so the size of the brownie base shouldn’t be same as the outer size of the top of the pan… Oh My it was very hard to explain, but did I clarify your question? If not, please let me know!!!

      1. Sandra says:

        Yes you explained it very well, your English was perfect!!
        I thought you baked the brownie in the loaf pan and marked the edges with the parchment on the outside of the pan just so that placing it on the inside would be easier to fit neatly. After reading your reply, I watched the video again and now I see that it was baked in a different pan. I wish I had noticed that detail the first time so I wouldn’t have needed to ask for clarification, and you wouldn’t have had to go to so much effort to answer. I do appreciate you for taking the time, and making the effort, to explain. I also hope this gives you more confidence in your ability to communicate in English because your answer was very clear, and your grammar and spelling were better than many native English speakers. So well done and thank you so much!!

          Sandra, haha thank you 🙂
          And I’m glad the last reply helped.
