Cookie dough apple cake

December 13, 2015

Here is a DELICIOUS low carb apple cake, which I found on the swedish sight jillsmat.se It’s basically like apple flavoured cookie dough, and low carb (except for the one apple).

Cake batter
2 eggs
1.5 dl xylitol (“birch trea sugar”)
100g butter
1 dl cream
2 Tsp baking powder
0.5 tsp vanilla powder
1 Tbsp psyllium seed husk (more if not finely ground)
1 dl coconut flour
1 dl almond flour
1 apple (grated)

Bottom part
3 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ginger (powder)
50g butter
3 Tbsp Sukrin Gold (or 4 Tbsp Xylitol)
1 sliced apple (or more if you don’t mind the carbs)

  1. Turn on oven on 200°C (or 175°C hot air oven)
  2. Beat eggs with the sweetener until fluffy. Add melted butter and cream and whisk in remaining ingredients.
  3. Melt butter with spices and sweetener and add in the sliced apples. Pour into the baking tray/cake mold. Spread the cake better on top and bake for 20-25 minutes, until baked through but still soft and sticky.
  4. Flip up on a nice plate and serve with whipped cream!
