Delightful Birthday Cake

There is no a birthday party without a Birthday Cake. If you ignore my inadvertent decor 😉 and accept this cake, you’ll see how light and full of flavor it is. Furthermore, your cake will be fancy!

Ingredients:

For cake:

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups almond meal
  • ½ cup pure fructose

For frosting:

  • Half pint (236 ml) of whipping cream
  • 2 tsp pure fructose
  • 2 tsp instant coffee
  • 1 tbsp hot water

Optional:

  • For soaking the cake layers: 50 ml Triple espresso vodka or Coffee flavored brandy
  • For decoration: add to cream 1 tsp of instant coffee and 1 tbsp of cacao powder

Directions:

Cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 390*F (180*C)
  • Separate yolks from whites
  • Using an electric mixer, whisk yolks with half of fructose until light and fluffy
  • Gradually add almond meal, stirring gently with stirring whisk
  • Using an electric mixer, whisk whites with the second half of fructose, until standing picks
  • Little by little, add whipped whites to the yolks-nuts mixture, stirring very carefully with the stirring whisk
  • Divide the mixture between two round 8-9 inch baking pans, lined with a parchment paper
  • Bake for 16 minutes. Pull out cake layers with wax paper and let cool on wire racks. Remove the paper

Frosting:

  • Mix instant coffee with 1 tbsp of hot water and let cool
  • Using an electric mixer, whip a whipping cream with fructose until just holding its shape
  • Add the coffee and whip for 1-2 more minutes, until getting homogeneity and nice coffee-cream color

If you choose to soak the layers, brush them with the liquor before frosting

Spread the cream over the top of each layer, stack the layers, frost the sides

If you choose to decorate the cake, save 2-3 tbsp of cream. Add instant coffee and baking cocoa powder to a dark brown color, and decorate as desired

Keep in a refrigerator until serving
