Whatever you have planned ...

and take time for a cuppa
and slice of low carb Coffee and Walnut Sponge Cake

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 (heavy) cream
1 tablespoon of instant coffee
100 grams of clotted cream

1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
2. Melt the butter, I used a Pyrex jug, add the eggs, cream.
3. 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.
4. Microwave in a 700 watt for 5 minutes in a 6" x 3" micro-wave safe glass dish.
5. Allow to cool and cut in half. Spread on clotted cream and add walnut halves.

Serves 6 , around five carbs per portion.

Please note this cake is very low in carbs, but quite high in calories, so have a small slice !

All the best Jan

Coffee and walnut is Mick's favourite cake and I'm quite partial to it myself.

(I especially like that there are no artificial sweetners in it.)

Date and walnut cake is just the best IMHO. You have an informative blog.

I stopped using baking powder in such recipes, opting for whipped egg whites instead. I separate egg yolks from egg whites, and mix only yolks with all other ingredients, adding whipped whites before cooking. I think it improves taste. Sometimes I even add yeasts just for taste.
