Ingredients

  • 2 ¼ cup Almond Meal Flour
  • ¾ cup Coconut Flour
  • ½ cup Dagoba Cocao Powder
  • 1 tbs Monkfruit Golden Sweetener
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 5 Eggs
  • ½ cup Erythritol
  • 2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 1/4 cup Grass Fed Butter (melted)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
    Topping
  • 1 ½ cup Grass Fed Butter
  • 3/4 cups Classic Monkfruit Sweetener
  • ¾ Cup Erythritol
  • 5 Egg Yolks
  • 1 ½ cups Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 ½ Cup Unsweetened Coconut
  • 1 ½ cup Chopped Pecans
  • 1 tsp Vanilla

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚.
  2. Prepare pans: Butter and line with parchment paper. This recipe accommodates two 8-inch round pans. (I opted to use my rectangular pans so that I would not have to cut me cakes to fill the layers.)
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, sift Almond Flour, Coconut Flour, Golden Monkfruit Sweetener, Dagoba Cocao Powder, Salt and Baking Soda to avoid clumps. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, mix Eggs, melted Butter, Heavy Whipping Cream, and Vanilla extract until combined well.
  5. Combine wet and dry ingredients until mixed well.
  6. Fill pans and pop in the oven.
  7. Wrap cake pans with baking strips
  8. Cook until inserted toothpick comes out clean. (because I used rectangular shallow pans, For 8 inch pans cooking time will vary between 20 and 30 minutes. I cooked my cakes for 20 minutes.)
  9. When cakes are cooked let cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then remove from pan and let them cool completely on cooling racks. Cut each cake so that in the end you have a 4 layer cake.
  10. While cakes are cooling, whisk Egg Yolks and Heavy Whipping cream until combined well.
  11. In a heavy sauce pan on medium heat melt butter and erithrytol stirring until the erithrytol is dissolved. (Be careful not to burn)
  12. Add Eggs and Heavy Whipping Cream stirring constantly until it thickens about 20 mins.
  13. When the topping is the consistency of gravy remove from heat and stir in Vanilla, Coconut, and Pecans. Still until the topping is cooled.
  14. Assemble your cake making sure to put filling between every layer and then on the top.

Enjoy ! 😉
