Instructions

CAKE:

  • Combine eggs, heavy cream, water, and vanilla extract in medium bowl. Set aside
  • In large mixing bowl, blend together the almond flour, coconut flour, whey protein, sweetener, and baking powder.
  • Add butter and about half the egg mixture. Mix on low speed until the dry ingredients are moistened.
  • Increase mixer to medium speed and beat for about 2 minutes.
  • Scrape sides of bowl and add remaining egg mixture. Beat for another minute.
  • Spread batter into two greased 9-inch round cake pans (I used ungreased silicone pans).
  • Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.

FROSTING:

  • Whip butter until fluffy.
  • Mix in half the heavy cream.
  • Slowly add the cocoa until blended in.
  • Add powdered sweetener in batches, beating well after each addition.
  • Whip in remaining heavy cream and stevia liquid. Add additional cream if needed.
  • Frost cake as desired. Makes enough frosting for a 9-inch double layer cake.
