    Looking for Low Carb Cakes - Here are Some

    Post by Jan1 on Sat Mar 26 2016, 12:27

    You don't have to eat a lot of sugar / carbs when choosing cakes.
    Take these suggestions, they are all made using almond flour, so perhaps we can all enjoy a slice.
    The only problem, which one will you choose.
    Decisions, decisions ...

    Lime and Vanilla Cheesecake

    I thought it may be a good idea to include this recipe idea in with this thread. It is a great tasting low carb cheesecake ...

    Cheesecake has always been one of my favourites and this low carb version is a winner. Serve cold and a small serving because it is quite a rich recipe...

    Ingredients
    Base
    100g melted butter
    2 cups Almond meal
    1 tbsp Almond butter
    Filling
    4 Eggs plus 1 egg yolk
    500g Cream cheese (regular)
    200g Coconut cream
    1 tbsp Vanilla essence
    3 tbsp Natvia
    4 Limes (juiced)

    Instructions
    Mix butter, almond meal and almond butter together and press into a 25cm springform tin, line with baking paper. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
    Beat together all filling ingredients until smooth. Pour over cooled base. Bake for 1 hour at 160 degrees, or until firm to touch and browned on top. Best refrigerated overnight and served at room temperature the next day.

    Lemon Cake : Low Carb


    The creator of this cake is Ewelina - see link below, she writes ...

    "What I like about this cake is a perfect combination of soy flour and ground almond. Cakes made with ground almond are slightly too heavy for me but soy flour on its own has a bit funny taste. Combination of these two together, makes a nice, fluffy cake and you can’t really taste soy flour. It’s also lower in calories and cheaper than using ground almond only."

    Ingredients (makes about 15 slices):
    · 80g Soy flour, sieved
    · 100g Ground almond
    · 85g butter, softened
    · Equivalent of 250g sugar (I used 250g xylitol, grind using coffee grinder)
    · 5 eggs, separated
    · 2 tsp. baking powder
    · Pinch of cream of tartar
    · Juice from 1 lemon
    · Zest from 1 lemon

    Carbohydrates and Calories details  (using Xylitol as a sweetener):
    Whole cake batter 24g carbohydrate : 2533 Calories
    1 portion (1/15 of the cake) 1.6g carbohydrate : 168 Calories

    BEST LOW CARB CHOCOLATE CAKE

    As low carb friend Libby says, "this is now my go to cake. It has to be the best low carb chocolate cake out there. It’s so easy to make and so rich, with the texture being more like a rich chocolate truffle.

    Because my ‘best low carb chocolate cake’ is wheat free, gluten free, grain free, no added sugar and nut free, I make it every time for my children's birthday parties. And because it is so rich, the adults eat it too (with a good coffee). I love this Chocolate Heaven Cake, and I must say it is the first thing I want to make if I have chocolate in the house.

    It can be made as a cake then sliced, served with berries and whipped cream. Or bake in a square dish then cut into tasting squares and top each piece off with a fresh berry. This is a easy idea to take as finger food to share with friends.

    INGREDIENTS:
    Serves 15
    300g dark 75% chocolate
    175g butter
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    6 eggs
    6 tbs double cream
    4 tsp granulated stevia (optional)

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    Melt the chocolate and butter together over a low heat in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before adding the vanilla extract.
    In another bowl beat the eggs, cream and stevia together for 3-4 minutes (use a stick blender or hand whisk). It will go frothy and remain runny.
    Slowly add the egg mixture to the chocolate mixture in the saucepan, stirring all the time. As you add more egg mixture, the chocolate and butter will thicken to the consistency of custard.
    Pour into a prepared tin (see below). Grease a loose bottom cake tin with butter then line the loose bottom with baking paper and push through the outer ring so the baking paper adds a seal and stops the cake mixture from leaking.
    Bake at 180C for approx 40 minutes.

    NUTRITION INFORMATION:
    Serving size: 1 slice Calories: 237 Fat: 19.7g Carbohydrates: 12.1g Sugar: 11.2g Protein: 3.9g "

    Thanks again to Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' blog for another gorgeous recipe.
