If you don't have a cute little cast iron skillet, borrow one like I did. Or, just bake this up in a pan. It will still be good, I promise. But oh so adorable in a little skillet. This recipe will work in a 5 inch skillet, 6 inch or 6 1/2 inch. You could also use two 3 1/2 inch cuties. See my Amazon store to purchase them. I like the Lodge brand skillets.
5 tbsp Master Baking Mix #2 ( #1 will work as well)
3 tbsp cocoa powder
3 tbsp erythritol stevia blend equal to sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp refined coconut oil
1/4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp vanilla stevia
In a medium bowl, combine baking mix, cocoa, sweetener, baking powder and salt. In a small microwavable bowl or saucepan, melt coconut oil and chocolate. Stir in vanilla and stevia. Add the wet ingredients to the dry bowl. Add egg and stir to combine. Butter or oil a 6 inch cast iron skillet. Spoon batter into the skillet, smoothing the top. Bake 15 minutes at 325 degrees. Top with cream or whipped cream and a drizzle of sugarfree chocolate syrup. Grab two spoons and share with a friend. 4 servings is plenty also!

My sweet daughter in law who loaned me this skillet is in the hospital tonight. Please send up some prayers for her. My son also, who is a very worried husband at this point. It is touching to see what a fine young man he is, and what a protector of his bride he has become. Kristen should be released tomorrow, but the medical mystery is not quite solved. We are praying wisdom for the doctors and peace for all. I will spend the next few days cooking up a storm to get the newsletter out. I would rather be a state away taking care of her. She is such an independent young lady; she doesn't want anyone fussing over her. So here I sit, praying over my kids just as I did when they were babies. Of course, chocolate helps too.
If you don't have my Master Baking Mix recipe, here is the #2 version, a little heartier and less expensive than #1.

1 1/2 cup coconut flour
1 1/4 cup oat fiber
3/4 cup almond flour
