On That Keto Diet and You really Want Something Sweet Like Cake??....Here's How ..
Low carb rocks! I have preached that to soda, potato, pizza addicts for years.
another 10 or 12 minutes and you could have a good old Lard Biscuit.
Thanks! I want to get some more almond flour recipes as I have not cooked with it yet but it is great for low carb cooking. I will try this. I found a cinnamon roll recipe which is low carb. Spray a coffee cup with olive oil. mix one egg, 1.5 scoops of vanilla whey with a pinch of stevia and some cinnamon. Microwave for 45 seconds. dump the roll out of the cup and cut in half. Top with either cream cheese or Greek Yogurt and some powdered stevia and cinnamon.
I am a recent convert to low-carb, never felt better.
a cinnamon roll sounds great !!— I’ll try it ...Thanks
yes. It is the secret to my success. Congrats!

Food ping? Please advise. Thank you.
To be honest, I don’t know if there is an official food ping list. However, I do know that carlo3b posts recipes and expresses what appears to be heartfelt concern about both his family and this Republic. So, if there is anyone worthy of a food ping, I figure it is carlo3b. But maybe there is, or should be, a food ping list as well?
Maybe he can correct me, but I though carlo3b is a chef? if he’s not, then I don’t know where I got the idea lol.
Blueberry Almond Muffins
You can use Fresh or Frozen berries, if you are using frozen berries, there is no need to defrost them — in fact, they hold their shape better during cooking if you add them to the mixture while still frozen. You can also add a teaspoon of cinnamon, and/or a touch of nutmeg for an interesting variation. Raspberries are a wonderful substitution as well.. Enjoy! Carlo

This is a recipe that was given to me years ago, and I wish I could remember where, and from whom, so I could credit it properly.. It’s a good one.. Carlo
Almond Flour Apricot and Almond Cream Cake
This recipe is based on a traditional British cake called a Victoria Sandwich Cake. Victoria Sandwich Cake is a plain, or yellow, cake which is baked in two pans and then sandwiched together with whipped cream and strawberry jam. This is my version for low-carbers, which is made with canned apricots instead of jam and ground almonds instead of flour. I challenge any non low-carber to realize that it isn’t a regular cake!
1 cup butter (at room temperature)
2 rounded tablespoons Splenda
5 eggs (at room temperature)
2 cups ground almonds (almond flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
1/2 cup heavy cream
5 apricot halves from a can of apricots in water
Butter and line two 8-inch round baking pans with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix the first seven ingredients (plus almond extract, if using) together in a food processor until smooth.
Divide the mixture between the two baking pans, level the tops and bake for about 30 minutes until firm in the center.
Remove from the oven and leave on a cooling rack for five minutes before loosening with a knife and turning out onto the racks. Peel off the baking paper and leave to cool completely.
When cooled, whip the cream until fairly thick and “spreadable.” Drain the apricots and chop into small chunks, then mix them into the whipped cream.
Turn one of the cakes upside down and spread the cream mixture over it (like buttering a piece of bread!) Place the other cake on top of the cream and press lightly to sandwich the cakes together. Serve cut into wedges.
Per serving (one slice): 6.2g carbohydrates; 2.4g fiber; 7.3g protein; 34.7g fat; 355 calories
Thanks! I will definitely give this a try!
Laz, buddy this is a threasd for you!
Oh, joy! My dearest friend has a son who is struggling with his weight. This will be a wonderful dish to share with them.
Copied and pasted. Thank you!
Where do you buy almond flour?
Pinging myself to this thread for later.
The recipe looks great. I’m going back to low carbing after Thanksgiving. I remember when I did it a few years ago, it was pretty easy after the first few days. But I so did miss the occasional piece of cake.
Do you have a recommendation for almond flour sources? We live in the middle of nowhere and have to order some things online. Thx.
I remember you. Kevin Davis credited you with his graphic for the SciFi thread. If this is a hijack, please overlook or ignore. Thx.
Yes, just checked and carlo3b is a chef and his recipes are of the mouth-watering variety. Can’t wait to order the almond flour for the apricot confection!
Low Carb Chocolate Bark
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 oz peanuts (optional)
1 packet truvia, or the sweetner of your choice
Mix all the ingredients together and spread in a plastic wrap lined loaf pan. Freeze for 5-10 minutes.
I’m glad you like it.. Here is a link that will give you additional info on Adkins diets, that you may find interesting..
A forum I joined a few years ago and has a lot of LC recipes and health info - http://forum.lowcarber.org/index.php?
Haven’t posted there in a long time because I don’t remember my user info and I’m sure the e-mail I used is no longer active either.
I still go and read sometimes while trying to get back on LC. Might see my user name on one of the old threads I posted on and remember.
Sounds doable and good. Thx for posting!
What would the carb change be if real cane sugar was used instead of Splenda?
Yes I did a couple of the SciFi thread graphics (Babylon 5 and Stargate I think it was), thank you for remembering. My other claims to fame in FReeperdom are the graphic to the Free Iran ping list for DrZin and the artwork for the FReeper Mug that was a promotional giveaway to monthlies a few years ago. /brag :)
You can buy the almond flour at the grocery store in the organic section or buy it on Amazon.com.
Can you, or someone tell me what "Bfl" means, I'm not as hip as I think I am, and have searched this out and am as confused as ever.. Some of the definitions are too far off track, others are, well, not flattering.. LOL
It means “Bump for later” as the person wants to mark it and read it all when more convenient.
DUH!.......................... thanks...... :)
I’m running this morning and didn’t see your question until just now.. This is a link to some great tools that you can use to calculate a lot of questions for the future..
Thank you very much! This thread has increased my cheeriness titer exponentially!
