Default Low Carb "Pancake" Cake




Hubby & I had a craving for pancakes this morning, so I threw this together. We were thrilled to discover that these "pancakes" tasted just like the real thing without all the carbs!

This isn't a low calorie dish, but at just 5 net carbs per serving, we'll be enjoying it as an occasional treat.

CAKE:

1 c. Coconut flour
1 c. Ground flax meal
2T. Buckwheat flour
2T. Splenda
1 t. vanilla
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
1/3 c. warm water
1/4 c. butter
2T. Almond butter
1/4 c. whipped cream cheese
1/4 c. chopped walnuts

Grease bottom of a 9" X 9" baking dish. Preheat over to 350 F.

In a small saucepan, melt butter, cream cheese, and almong butter together with vanilla and 1 T. of Splenda.

In a mixing bowl, mix coconut flour, buckwheat, flax meal, and remaining Splenda until well-blended then mix in 2 eggs and 1/3 c. water, adding additional water as needed to form a thick paste. Fold in melted ingredients and mix til blended.

Spread mixture evenly into greased baking dish, leaving a slight lip on the edges of the dough. Spread chopped nuts evenly over the top, pressing them lightly into the dough.

Bake at 350 F for 35 minutes.

Let cool for five minutes then cut into six pieces.

They taste great just like this, but if you want "syrup," it's simple to make... I use:

1/4 c. butter
Dash vanilla
2 T. Splenda

Melt butter & mix in other ingredients. Spoon over top of the "cake." A little goes a LONG WAY! I use 1-2 t. of this "syrup" per piece of cake.

Six GENEROUS servings: 425 calories, 15 protein, 5 carbs each piece (includes syrup)

Peanut butter will work, but our regular supermarket has almond butter in the health food isle...

I'm going to make that syrup. Thinking some maple flavoring might be in order.

It sounds incredible! And I've always been a pancake fan...especially on weekend breakfasts.

Do you have a link to the photo so we can see it?

The syrup was good! I did use the maple flavoring. Much better than the lc version you buy at the store which can cause intestinal 'distress'.

Here's a plain pancake with 2 eggs, spicy sauce, onions, peppers, lettuce and fried (air fluffed) bread... prepared and served in just 2 minutes. I've eaten this several times and it tastes so good.... I don't miss sugar or the taste of sugar when eating something this good.... This also can be served without the added fried bread and with added various vegetables. My wife makes a home version of this using a buckwheat/flour 60/40 mix (makes it herself from scratch)

Anyone ever see a pancake made this way before?
