Here Comes Summer : Low Carb Summer Fruits Sponge Cake

You can tell we are into the summer season when we have a wonderful family get-together and favourite summer time foods are enjoyed ...

I always enjoy this recipe, it's actually one of Eddie's low carb cake recipes, and it's cooked in the microwave!

He first made it some years ago now, and it has remained a favourite with us and other family members. I haven't shared the recipe idea for a while, and knowing that in recent months we have new readers, I thought it would be nice to share it again. With summer upon us, a low carb sponge cake could be just what you need!

The fruits you use can always be adjusted to what is in season, and what may be available in a shop near you! If you need a guide to lower carb fruits have a look here

 
Ingredients:
200g ground almonds
2 heaped teaspoons baking powder
3 medium eggs
2 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons double (heavy) cream
Low-carb fruits

Method:
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Melt the butter I used a Pyrex jug, add the eggs and cream, then add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Add some low-carb fruits, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries to the mix and spoon into a baking container. I used a silicone bread mould.
Microwave in a 700watt for 6 minutes.
Take out of the mould, if still damp place upside down on four layers of kitchen paper and microwave for a further one minute.
Allow to cool then spread on a layer of extra thick cream, then add fruits to the top.
A little tip, allow to cool on four or five layers of kitchen paper to remove any excess moisture.
Slice and serve in a bowl with some double cream.

Serves eight.

It looks simple and tasty. My microwave is primarily used for reheating. I should explore its capacities further.
