- ½ teaspoon almond or pure vanilla extract bean paste
I had intended to cut these into bars but they are quite rich. Here’s the thing, though. I end up eating more than one at a time, so I’ll leave it up to you how you cut them!
Keto Health Bites (or Bars)
This is a nice moist slightly heavy heavenly dark chocolate pound cake with a lovely orange flavour. I used a bundt pan. If you split this into 2 loaves be sure to lessen the bake time. I blitzed 2 tiny mandarins in (or use a small orange) – use sugar-free orange essence if you prefer.
It’s the best lchf keto cake I’ve created.
Chocolate Orange Pound Cake
Make sure you have flaked almonds and blueberries, or any chopped nuts of your choice and berries. This topping is more scone like and very much a coffee cake.
It’s birthday weekend for my Sweetie, so time to bake. This is my keto version of an olive oil flourless chocolate cake bake. I can’t remember where I got this recipe or when I changed it up, but here it is, in a keto version. Rich, dense coffee flavoured chocolate cake! It’s very very good though not too photogenic.
Summary of what we do:
Filter strong cup of coffee and dissolve sugar in it and stir in cocoa. Beat eggs and olive oil; add almond flour and mix together, combine with wet olive oil mix and lastly add cocoa mix then bake 45 to 50 minutes at 325⁰F/160⁰F
If you have fresh berries, gelatine, cream and 10 minutes to spare, try this light and delicious easy keto dessert. It’s … almost Panna cotta? For non-keto use same quantity cane sugar.
Almond Cloud Summer Dessert
I used this wonderful sugar free passion fruit concentrate from Hawaii in this dessert.
Hot keto porridge with blueberries, cream and keto honey, bullet proof coffee.
Cauliflower and broccoli cheese, Mediterranean veggie tray bake and pork chop.
Every curry I make starts with:
Toasted spices, added onion, pureed ginger and garlic, curry powder, turmeric, chili powder, bay, lime and curry leaves. Add fresh diced tomatoes, simmer and add meat of choice. This turned into a chicken curry.
The view from my home office upstairs. Crabapple blossoms!
Quick, light and no baking!
I’ve never made this crustless cheesecake and only eaten it once in a restaurant. Four of us shared a slice and I remember promising a keto version to myself. I’ve adapted a few recipes into this LCHF keto recipe and it’s as delicious as it looks. Much lighter than normal cheesecake if you keep your mixing light and not overly beaten. It has a wonderful dark “burnt” caramelised edge and warm depth of flavour and is creamy and much less dense than a traditional cheesecake. I do believe it is traditional in Spain to enjoy it alongside a glass of Sherry!
A large part of important prep is having your baking pan well greased with butter, layering two sheets of parchment paper, also buttering after each is layer is put in the pan. Leave a good amount of paper higher than the top of the pan by at least 10cm (4 inches?) as this beautiful cheesecake can rise quite a bit and above the rim of the cake tin. It is now my most favourite cheesecake.
This keto recipe is based on Alton Browns twice baked method and makes 48 sizeable brownies (I used a 40x20cm lined pan) and the recipe can be halved. What magic is this twice baked method that they turn out so moist? It’s a mystery! I also prefer a process of melting sugar into the butter as keto sugar can be very gritty, and this fixes that problem. Just be sure not to let the butter get too hot when dissolving the sugar in the butter.
These Brownies are fudgy goodness; so much so that you might end up cutting them into smaller squares. They are concentrated chocolate bombs, almost like a chocolate fudge dessert. You have been warned!
Summary: melt butter and sugar, mix in dry ingredients and then eggs; bake for 15 min, cool for 15, bake for 35 – 40 min
I like unusual flavour combinations and in my pre-keto days a favourite summer treat was to eat waffles from a place called Waffle Window. There was always a line. This sweet/savoury waffle was my favourite but the Loaded Berry Waffles were amazing too.
