Grain-free, Sugar-free Yellow Cake
I enjoy the taste and texture of this yellow cake - especially when I add my special chocolate frosting!
- 6 eggs
- 3/4 cup almond meal
- 2 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil
- 1 vanilla bean

- sweetener to taste
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl. (Scrape vanilla bean into the bowl.)
- Blend. The texture should be slightly liquid.
- Pour into parchment lined or greased loaf pan or 8X8 parchment lined or greased pan.
- Bake 15-25 minutes. Check every five minutes till cake remains slightly doughy.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool while you make the frosting.
- To make the frosting, melt ingredients over low heat till nicely blended.
- Frost cake and put in the freezer until chocolate solidifies.
- Add whipped cream if desired.

This recipe looks great but I’m going to need some help with the amount of sweetener to use. I’m not at all familiar with stevia or the other product, so could use a general guideline to help me know how much to use. Thanks for all the great-looking recipes, Brandon!!
