The cake looks really good. But I do have to ask how you came up with 20 carbs--I come up with about 34:
1 cup almond flour is 12 carbs
1 cup wheat protein isolate 5000 is 3 carbs
3 t. baking powder is 3 carbs
1/4 t. salt
1/4 cup granular erythritol is 2.5 carbs
2 T. Diabeti Sweet Brown Sugar is 3 carbs (counted like splenda)
1 1/4 cups equivilent splenda (30 drops sweetzfree)
1/2 cup crisco green no trans fat
1 cup sour cream is 8 carbs
2 T. heavy whipping cream .75 carbs
2 t. vanilla extract is 1 carb
3 drops yellow food color
3 eggs is 1.8 carbs
Total 34

Still good for a cake. Although once I added enough icing for us it probably wouldn't be. But I like like to be as accurate as I can with my counts.

I like your idea of a Dump Cake. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks!

Sorry Kevin. I didn't mean to offend you. Your recipes are great. I am a "bean counter"--I count and measure everything to the nth degree. I just can't help myself.

Hi Kevin,
I finally had some free time and decided to bake your cake. I'm not exactly a fan of LC baked goods because most of the recipes I've tried turned out badly. I must admit that the cake was better than those I've tried before. A added bonus was My BGL didn't rise!

However I wanted to ask just how essential to the recipe is the salt? Normally I'd skip it in a recipe, but I didn't for some reason this time. Big mistake on my part. I had a slice while it was still warm and it was very salty! It's in the fridge now chillin' and the salty taste is not as strong, but I still taste it. I have a strong aversion to salt and can taste even the smallest amounts. Usually I get large welts in my mouth when I eat salt, so I do try to avoid it as much as possible. Right now I have a few small welts, nothing major, but the salty taste is still lingering.

Other than that and the slight off odor I can detect, it's decent and I would make it again minus the salt.

The icing recipe I posted turned out good, but not quite enough to cover both layers. Next time I'll double it.

I'm not near as sensitive to salt, so to me it was not noticable. The recipe should work fine without it and giving it more consideration, with the amount of baking power in the cake it may be best without it. If I were to omit it I might even back off a bit on the sweetener as well.

I made a half recipe of this cake yesterday and appied a slight tweak to it by subbing butter for the crisco. The butter version turned out very nicely also.

Yum! This recipe should work for my favorite coconut rum cake recipe! I always loved the high carb recipe with coconut, coconut pudding mix, coconut milk, and coconut rum topped with a coconut rum glaze. I don't know if the flour substitute ingredients are quite as absorbent as the wheat flour, though.

Maybe the butter, sugar, and water based glaze could be made with polydextrose and diabetasweet as sweetener...

Thanks Kevin!

Okay, Mr. Kevin..This looks like the basic cake for....a Boston Creme Pie..
I made one once, using almond pound cake..this would be lighter..

Filling could be a custard OR sugar free vanilla pudding..or then a chocolate glaze on the top..

I think it would be great...

Hi Mac.... I'm not Kevin.... but maybe you could sub coconut extract for the vanilla and add in some unsweetened coconut to the mix......

Maybe Kevin will chime in soon!!

Let us know if you make it....

Kevin- Do you still use this yellow cake recipe?

I have been sorting through all the posts and was trying to figure out if the chocolate cake mix you were making is what you are still using and this yellow cake also. I have some time off this week and would like to try to get some of these recipe's down pat so to speak. I also love the idea of having some mixes ready for those unexpected events where you have to bring something on the fly. TIA Jodi

Yellow Cake

I have been using your mix for everything, that's how I came up with the pizza crust that is so good. But I can't seem to get the biscuits to come out right with the mix, so I thought I'd check before I ventured into the cake area. The biscuits come out more bread like than biscuit like. Any idea what i might be doing wrong? Or do you do something different for the biscuits? Any tips are appreciated! Jodi

Questions: 1. Is the Crisco green available with regular Crisco in stores? I haven't used any in a couple of years so I don't even know what's out there any more. But I will use butter if I cannot find it.
2. Where can I find the recipes for the dry pudding and chocolate cake mixes? They would be very handy to keep on hand.
3. Is there a recipe for a "real" frosting? Not cream cheese and not whipped cream. I am so tired of those. Could I use the Crisco with splenda and a little cream to make something closer to the real thing?
KevinPa, you are so helpful and I love the pictures, thanks!

The only biscuits I ever make any longer are my cheddar cheese biscuits and i make them with my mix and they seem to turn out the same to me.

they don't make the green any longer.....now they all claim no trans fats.

Kevin had corrected it and told people to use 3 eggs.. I will fix the recipe.. It probably was just edited wrong. Hope you like it! Kevin was a genius in the Kitchen!!
