Lightly grease a 10-inch spring-form pan with butter.
2. Melt and lightly brown the butter in a saucepan and allow to cool completely.
3. Beat all the eggs and sugar substitute in a stand-up mixer on high until mixture is thick and a shade of pale yellow, about 6 minutes.
4. Add the almond flour by ¼ cup increments into the egg and sugar-substitute batter folding gently with a rubber spatula. *Do not over stir, mix only to combine
5. Once the batter has been mixed add the now cooled melted brown butter gently fold into the batter until fully incorporated.

This cake looks really good, but we just had the pleasure of a lemon poppyseed cake my wife makes. It goes perfectly with our morning coffee.

'Brown butter'. Now there is something I hadn't heard of (or used) in many years. My mother always made it to pour over cauliflower...
