3 ingredient chocolate cake

This super simple 3 ingredient recipe contains:

🌟Chocolate has been shown to have a variety of health benefits when consumed in moderation. Some of these benefits include reducing the risk of heart disease, improving brain function, and providing antioxidants that can help protect against cell damage and improve egg and sperm health. Additionally, chocolate contains compounds that have been linked to reducing inflammation in the body and improving blood flow. It is important for us to mention that it is best to choose dark chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa solids, to get the most beneficial compounds.

The primary antioxidants in chocolate are flavanols, which are a type of polyphenol. Once again, dark chocolate generally contains higher levels of flavanols compared to milk chocolate.

🌟Butter that is pure (only contains cream (milk), salt and water) is a good source of vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, and vitamin K. It also contains small amounts of other nutrients like calcium and potassium. Butter is also high in saturated fat, so it is recommended to consume it in moderation.

🌟 Eggs are a great source of protein, containing all the essential amino acids our bodies need. They are also a good source of choline, vitamins D and B12, and minerals such as iron and selenium. Additionally, eggs contain healthy fats that are important for brain and heart health.

Note for pregnancy: Dark chocolate typically contains about 12 mg of caffeine per 30 grams. The exact amount can vary depending on the brand and type of chocolate.
