  • Preheat your oven to 160C (320 F)
  • Combine the almond meal, coconut flour, baking powder and erythritol into one mixing bowl. Combine the ingreidnts together until a consistent colour is shown throughout the mixture
  • Next, seperate the egg yolks from the egg whites into two seperate mixing bowls. Combine the heavy whipping cream, melted butter and vanilla extract with the egg YOLKS
  • Using a small amount of warm water, melt the gelatine powder and mix with a small spoon until it looks well combined (it will start to become quite thick). Combine with the egg yolk mixture
  • Beat the egg whites with and electric mixer for 1-2 mins on high. White peaks will begin to form in the egg whites.
  • Slowly fold the egg yolk mixture in with the egg white mixture. Combine until a uniform colour.
  • Also combine the almond / coconut flour mixuture with the egg white / yolk mixture, until its all in one bowl. Pour into a well buttered 20cm (7.5") cake tin.

  • Combine the cream cheese, heavy whipping cream and powdered erythirtol in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer.
  • Add vanilla extract and lemon juice. Use as icing for your cake once it has cooled sufficiently.
  • Slice the cake in half slowly using a large blade, use 1/3 of the icing to layer between the cake, adding strawberries as needed.
  • Ice the top of the cake with the remaining icing. Top with any kind of keto friendly berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries) and enjoy. Best served fresh.
