LC Blueberry Pecan Coffee Cake
LC Blueberry Pecan Coffee Cake

Streusel Topping
1/4 c. butter, melted
1/8 t. sweetzfree
1 c. pecans, chopped
1 T. PolyD Plus
1 T. vanilla whey protein
1 T. ThickenThin notSugar
1 t. cinnamon

Cake Batter
1/3 c. butter, chilled in pieces
1 c. almond flour
1/2 c. carbquik
1/2 c. wheat protein isolate
1 T. ThickenThin notSugar
1/4 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
18 drops sweetzfree
1 t. vanilla
1 large egg
1/2 c. sour cream
1/4 c. half and half
30 fresh blueberries
2 T. davinci syrup

Grease a 9 x 9 baking dish or line with parchment or non-stick foil.
In a small mixing bowl combine the dry streusel ingredients then stir in the melted butter and sweetzfree till the nut mixture is well coated. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients for the batter.
Cut in the butter with a fork or a pastry cutter till you have a coarse meal.
Add egg, sour cream, half and half, vanilla and sweetzfree till just blended.

In prepared dish, layer 1/2 batter then top this with a layer of fresh blueberries followed with a layer of 1/2 the streusel mixture.
Repeat the batter and the streusel layers.
Drizzle top with the davinci syrup.

Bake in a 350 oven for 30 min. until a toothpick comes out clean.

As with most coffee cakes, I think it is best eaten a bit warm.

Total Coffee Cake is 36 carbs. I made mine 9 servings or 4 carbs each.

Here I go again. Whats Thicken Thin not sugar?

Kevinpa 07-13-2006 02:55 PM

ThickenThin not/Sugar or Polyd will work here. It is a mix of gums that adds fiber to give the mouthfeel of sugar.

blueberry coffee cake
This recipe is excellent and if you haven't made it, check it out!

I substituted Kevin's Carbquick cake and cookie mix for the 2 cups of almond flour, wpi and Carbquick; it turned out perfectly.

I am going to make a thin frosting to drip over it before serving it to company.
