  • Line out some parchment paper to the bottom of baking pan. Add some olive oil or coconut oil on the sides of the pan to prevent the cake from sticking.
  • In a large bowl, add all the dry ingredients: almond flour, baking powder, salt and granulated erythritol. Mix.
  • In a separate bowl, add the eggs, softened coconut oil, coconut cream, vanilla extract and almond extract. Whisk everything, until you have a smooth batter.
  • Make a little hole in the bowl with the dry ingredients, and add the egg mixture. Mix everything together with a whisk.
  • Transfer the cake batter into the baking pan and bake in the oven for 35 minutes until the top is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when sticking it into the baked cake.
  • Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool down to room temperature. Then remove the cake from the baking pan.

To finish off the cake

  • In a medium sized bowl, add the coconut puree, coconut cream, powdered erythritol, vanilla extract and almond extract. Mix until you have a smooth frosting.
