- Although I don't want this to turn into an entirely food obsessed blog, I still like to share my escapades! Therefore I thought I would start "Food on Friday" in order to share recipes!
- As many of you who have been reading for a while may know, I have quite a few health problems! haha! - one of the newest dilemmas for me to overcome has been the strict dietary requirements, I've had to adapt the way I cook to suit my needs, so here is a recipe for a flourless cake, which just so happens to be very low-carb aswell!
recipe found here.
I took 1/2 cup butter and softened in the microwave
4 1/2 ounces almond flour were then whizzed in the food processor with 1/4 cup dessicated coconut.
I then added 1 1/4 cup granular Splenda (or equivalent of sugar if needed)
Stir in 1 beaten egg
Then add 1 tablespoon lemon zest, from one large lemon!,1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence,1/4 teaspoon baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
Spread into a baking tin lined & greased with tin-foil
( I used the small IKEA roasting tin- you all know this is my favourite tin ever!! seriously, buy one)
Bake at 160ºC for 15-20 minutes.
*These keep really well in the fridge and also freeze well
