It's the perfect cake for any special occasion.
Perfect for the holidays, birthdays, or just some friends coming over for the weekend.
I made this cake and rocked my husband's world.
I've told you about him before.
He's a sugar loving, carb loving, meat and potatoes man. A man that although I've changed my lifestyle for over 12 years now and he eats everything I make, still loves his white sugar treats and carbs.
I can't change him or make him want to change to eat healthier. BUT he eats whatever I make and never complains and always tells me the honest truth.
Which is good of course. I want the truth, whether it's hard to hear or not.
But coming from someone who really hasn't changed his tastebuds to healthier cakes and such, well, there's a fine line to what HE might think is good and what I think is exceptional. Especially when it's grain free, sugar free and low carb, which is no easy task.
So he tried my cake.
And it rocked his world.
No after taste which he often notices in my baking with stevia and tells me so.
Nothing. No words. Nothing negative. Nothing. Which is good because often he eats one bite if he doesn't like it and that is the end.
He ate the whole piece and raved about it.
It's fudgey, almond-y and really dense.
So if you're not into dense and fudgey, don't make it.
But if you are.......
Please go and rock that certain someone in your life who is the skeptical party pooper when it comes to healthy desserts and then come back and tell me all about it.
- The topping is optional because this would be perfectly fabulous without the almond butter whipped cream on top. Just use some sugar free whipped cream if you like and you're done. Nutrition info is not including topping.
- You don't need chocolate stevia, but it is a good one to have on hand. Clear liquid stevia or even vanilla will work too. If you don't have liquid stevia, only powdered, here's my conversion chart.
- If you don't have Swerve and use another sugar free substitute, please remove the stevia. Swerve is not as sweet as other sugar free granulated sweeteners.
- I had left over cake with the topping on it. So I refrigerated it and when I went for a piece the next day it was too cold and thick. I reheated it in the microwave for 20 seconds and if was soft and fudgey and perfect once again.
