Ingredients

    .5 cup Crisco
    2 large eggs
    1 Tbl cocoa
    2 oz red food coloring
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp salt
    1.5 cups low-fat buttermilk
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 tsp white vinegar
    1 cup coconut flour
    1.25 cup whole wheat flour
    1 tsp KAL Pure Stevia Organic Extract
    2/3 cup Erythritol (powder)

Tips

Coconut flour sucks up liquid much more than other flours, so continue to add buttermilk or water as needed to thin out batter. Erythritol has some sweetness to it, but not as much as sugar, so Stevia is needed to get to the correct sweetness level.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350. Mix Erthyritol and Stevia. Mix in with shortening and eggs in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, make a liquid paste of the red food coloring and cocoa. May need to add hot water to create more of a paste. Stir into the shortening mix. In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut flour and whole wheat flour. Add 1 cup of the buttermilk and the salt alternately with the flour and beat slowly. Use the rest of the buttermilk (and hot water if needed) to get batter to the correct thin consistency. Pour into two 8" greased cake pans or a greased 9" x 13" glass pan. Bake 25-30 minutes.

Serving Size: A 9x13 glass pan makes 12 servings.
