Low Carb Almond Spice Cake

Submitted by: KARLARAMA

Introduction

A low carb cake with good flavor. A low carb cake with good flavor.
Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    1/2 cup butter softened
    1/2 cup cream cheese
    1 cup Splenda
    5 eggs, at room temperature
    2 cups almond flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 1/2 teaspoons grated lime zest
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
    dash of salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Cream butter, cream cheese and Splenda well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Mix almond flour with baking powder and spices, add egg to mixture a little at a time while beating. Add vanilla extract and lime zest. Pour into greased 9" round cake pan and bake at 350°F(175°C) for 50-55 minutes.

Very flavorful. We eat it with whipped cream sweetened with Splenda and flavored with vanilla. Applesauce would also be a great topping (but not really low carb!).

***If you cannot find almond flour, it is very easy to make with some raw almonds and a coffee grinder. Just make sure not to grind long or you will make almond paste. It works well to grind for a bit and sift through a mesh handled kitchen strainer.
