INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Line a 18 cm / 7 inch springform pan with parchment paper and grease the sides with butter. Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F.
  2. Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff, about 3 minutes. Take your time with this – it creates sturdier air bubbles which ensures your batter stays fluffy and the cake does not collapse.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream the egg yolks, vanilla extract and sweetener until pale and frothy. Add the melted, cooled butter and almond milk and beat.
  4. Mix together the sifted coconut flour and baking powder and add to the egg yolk mix. Blend until combined.
  5. Last, fold in the egg whites in batches using a spatula. Carefully stir and fold until well-combined, ensuring you’re keeping the air bubbles intact.
  6. Pour the batter into the springform and bake for about 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Check the cake after 20 minutes to make sure it does not over-brown. If necessary, place aluminium foil over the top to avoid burning.

Icing

  1. For the optional icing, mix together the ingredients, adding more cream/milk or more sweetener as necessary until it is spreadable. Pour over the top of the fully cooled cake and spread around the sides. Let the icing set before cutting.

NOTES

NET CARBS: 0.8g net carbs per slice. Makes 12 servings.
If you add the frosting, the net carbs increase to 0.9g, calories are 148 and fat increases to 13.4g.
Let cool fully before cutting or decorating.
I used a 18cm / 7 inch springform. If you use a larger (20cm) springform pan, the cake will be slightly flatter. You may also need to decrease the oven time to 30 minutes in total.
