Food on Friday #1 - Flourless Cake

- I am well aware I post quite a few of my adventures in the kitchen to my blog!

- 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.

  flourless cake 

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



  1. Mmmm they look nice, coconut and almond flour with lemon zest sound like a good combination. I hope health wise you are feeling better .
    And I totally get you on the kitchen adventures... lately I post a lot of those as well.

    1. Try to find a job, hospital, cooking & sleeping. That's all I do at the moment! That's why! Only one of those I would class as vaguely interesting! Haha. It makes a nice change from really heavy floury stuff that's for sure :)

  2. For the Diner, you can quickly find restaurants serving the dishes you
    want, then look through what’s available and make your email booking.
