Low-Carb Dense Vanilla Cake:
Adapted from the cake recipe here: http://joyfilledeats.com/tres-leches-cake/
(I made a one-portion version of this recipe, so just multiply the amounts if you want a larger cake(s)).
1 large egg
1 tablespoon of erythritol or xylitol (add more if not adding frosting/glaze/filling later)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1 tablespoon of cream
3 tablespoons of flour substitute (I use 3 parts almond flour, 1 part coconut flour, and a teaspoon of guar gum per cup of final mixture)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350F.
Beat the sweetener, vanilla, cream and the egg until well combined. Mix the flour substitute, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl, then mix into liquids. Pour into a suitable baking pan or cupcake liner and bake for 10 minutes. If a toothpick or knife inserted into the middle does not come out clean, bake for an additional 5 minutes. Cool fully before slicing.
