Connoisseurs with gluten intolerance (coeliac disease) can enjoy this juicy chocolate sin without hesitation. Dark chocolate counteracts the less favourable fatty acid structure with many saturated fatty acids. Scientists have proven that dark chocolate strongly increases the heart protecting antioxidants in the blood for a few hours.

A good vegetable-based baking margarine instead of butter lowers the cholesterol content of the delicious cake without much loss of taste!
