Almond Flour Fudge Cake - pic
 
Almond Flour Fudge Cake

Cake:
4 cups almond flour – scooped –16 ounces
2 cups Splenda (liquid equivalent or granular)
1/2 cup Erythritol – granular
4 packets Stevia Plus
1/2 cup cocoa - I like the Hershey's Special Dark
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2-teaspoon salt
1 tablespoons vanilla
1/3-cup oil
4 eggs
1-cup sour cream

Frosting:
1/2-cup butter – 1 stick – room temp
1 large egg – room temp
1/3 cup granular Erythritol – powdered – I use my coffee bean grinder
1/3 cup Splenda
2 packets Stevia Plus
8 ounces cream cheese – room temp
1 teaspoons vanilla


Preheat oven to 350° Spray a 9x13-inch cake pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl combine dry ingredients and stir well.

Beat the eggs with the oil and the vanilla…add to the dry ingredients along with the sour cream and mix well. Pour into prepared pan and bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out mostly clean and cake is firm to the touch. Do not over cook…cake should still be moist.

Remove from the oven to a wire rack and cool completely.

To Make Frosting:
Beat butter with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add sweeteners and beat well scraping sides of bowl as needed.

Add the egg and beat until very fluffy…beat in vanilla.

Add softened cream cheese a little bit at a time beating until fluffy after each addition.

Frost cake...store in frig.

Wow, after I make my Thanksgiving things, I am coming back to this one! That looks terrific!

The Chicken Lady 11-20-2009 11:52 AM

I've been playing with the idea of poking holes in this cake and spreading the frosting on while it's still hot and letting it seep into the cake. Or maybe doing that with half the frosting and then putting the rest of the frosting on after it cools. I may get really brave and give it a try with the next one.

I'm glad you like it...I love almond flour. To me it's the best LC caking flour sub. All the others taste bad and you have to try to cover the bad taste...almond flour starts out tasting good and then you just add to it.

Thanks for the picture! This looks wonderful!

Bar10der 11-22-2009 08:59 PM

That sure does look good.

I have a question though:

Cake:
4 cups almond flour – scooped –16 ounces
Is that a typo or does almond flour measure out differently?

TIA

I measure my almond flour by scooping and shaking...not real accurate...so I weighed it after measuring and I get 4 ounces per cup. So 4 cups at 4 ounces each would be 16 ounces or 1 pound of almond flour total for the recipe.

Bar10der 11-23-2009 09:42 AM

Thanks for explaining. I just measure, don't weigh.

Aren't you the artist? That is beautiful!!

Thank you...now I know how I'll do my Thanksgiving cake.

Is that one frosting recipe or two?

Tweaker Geek 11-23-2009 04:23 PM

Thanks, CL.

One frosting recipe, I really beat the heck out of it after each addition of cream cheese to keep it super fluffy.
