INSTANT CAKE : 10 g carbs for whole cake

In my 1 and 1/2 years of low carbing , this is about the best treat that I have made and it sure does fill my naughtiness void .

Topped with lemon curd it is just awsome !!!!!!!


I oohed and aahed for hours afterwards


for the LEMON CURD : I changed the recipe slightly . To get rid of the nasty white eggy bits , use only the yellow of the egg . I also used thick not thin to improve the consistency and tweaked the sweetness with liquid cyclamate . mmmmmmm is all I can say

Hi Rob,

Hey, its not bad! I think it needs to be a little sweeter for cake though. I tried it with sugar free pudding mix made with heavy cream as frosting. My husband loved it!

I made my own almond flour - even sifted it is more like almond meal, so the cake had the texture of a corn muffin. So this is my new breakfast treat, I cut the recipe in half and make one sort of big flat muffin out of it. Basically in US measurements:

2 TBS melted butter
1 egg
1/4 Tsp extract (vanilla or almond or ??)
1 TBS Splenda
mix well then add:
1/3 cup almond flour + 1/4 tsp baking powder mixed together
mix well and microwave for 2 minutes -just like you said!
amazing! Thanks for the idea!
Rosemary

Its almost like lemon pie filling but not as firm
Tart sweet and creamy
Used as a spread or topping
Thats the best I can do...I am sure someone else can describe it a bit better but I hope this helps

Question Pecans instead of almonds?

Hi. I spotted your cake recipe, and it sounds delicious! I don't particularly react well to almonds , so I was thinking maybe I could use pecans instead. Do think it really matters what type of nut you use?

Hi Rachel ,


I think almonds are good because they are quite bland , afterall you dont want your cake to be tasting of brasil nuts or wallnuts for example . I think macadamia nuts would be quite good , but why dont you experiment if you dont like almonds ?

Rob, the lemon curd sounds great! I make cake using an almond flour pound cake recipe I found either here or at lowcarbluxury.com and I will try the curd on it. Thanks for the recipe.

And as to the pecans, I have made this cake with pecan flour and it was delicious, as it was with a combination of macadamia and cashew flours.
