Lowcarb Coffee and walnut cake with clotted cream.

Just when I thought, our resident experimental chief, had taken lowcarb cakes to the pinnacle, he surprises us yet again. Well done Graham, this could be your Magnum Opus. Coffee and walnuts with clotted cream.
100 grams of ground almonds
100 grams of walnuts
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon of melted butter
2 tablespoons of double cream

1 tablespoon of instant coffee
100 grams of clotted cream
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Melt the butter I used a Pyrex jug, add the eggs, cream. Place 1 tablespoon of instant coffee in a cup and pour some boiling water over the coffee, keep water to a minimum, just enough to melt the coffee. Then add the dry ingredients and mix. Microwave in a 700watt for 5 minutes. Allow to cool and cut in half. Spread on clotted cream and add walnut halves. Serves four, around five carbs per portion.
