Almond Roll with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Filling

Almond Roll with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Filling

Low carb and gluten free, this almond roll with pumpkin cream cheese filling is a spin everyone’s fall favorite - pumpkin spice! The cake is modeled after joconde, a foam-based sponge made with almond flour and whole eggs. To make the cake lighter, this recipe calls for just the egg whites. Note that because of the absence of gluten, the cake will be prone to cracking when rolling --- patience and a bit of filling shmeared on the outside will cover up any imperfections!The pumpkin cream ...

Caramel Creme Brulee

Caramel Creme Brulee

The other day I was planning on making a delicious ‘creme caramel’ but also wanted to try and make creme brulee. You may wonder what the difference is. Creme caramel is a custard with a caramel sauce. The custard is made with whole eggs, allowing it to be firm enough to stand on its own. Creme brulee is a custard made with egg yolks. While it’s thick, you’d have to leave it inside a ramekin. So I figured I’d make a mix of the two. A creme brulee with a caramel bottom.It’s fairly easy and ...

Keto Raspberry Ice Cream

Keto Raspberry Ice Cream

Who doesn’t love ice cream? True, there are a number of keto friendly frozen treats that are now available at the grocery store, but this recipe is too simple and too delicious to pass up.In lieu of sugar, I used allulose. I like it because it has zero GI and zero aftertaste. You may also use erythritol. If you want it sweeter, I suggest adding about 8-10 drops of liquid stevia. I didn’t find it necessary, to be honest. Fromage blanc is the French yogurt - it is a type of soft cheese ...

Toffee Nut Cake Donuts

Toffee Nut Cake Donuts

I have been seeing beautiful donut creations all over Instagram lately and it’s been inspiring me to make some ornate donuts that are keto friendly! I am a firm believer that food should look as good as it tastes.  I’ve been on a toffee nut kick so I decided to make a simple vanilla cake donut.  Then I decorated it with sweet and salty toffee nuts, and a healthy dose of low-carb dark chocolate coating. I added a touch of coconut because it’s pretty and it tastes good. It’s a win-win! But the ...

Keto Flan

Keto Flan

Custard is a new favorite of mine, and I can’t believe how EASY it is to make! There are different ways to make it too. Adding whole eggs to a custard base will make it hold its form… If you just use egg yolks, it will have the consistency of pudding, which is excellent for a creme brulee.Today, I will be making a flan, which will have a firm and robust custard that will hold its shape outside a ramekin. We will also be creating a caramel sauce with it that will become the top and most ...

Keto Sansrival

Keto Sansrival

Sansrival is a Filipino classic - crispy, chewy, meringue layered with French buttercream and cashew nuts. Translates to, “without rival.” Aptly so, as this is hands down a crowd favorite.The original recipe calls for a dacquoise, a meringue made with nuts that when cooked long and slow yields a crispy wafer. The keto version, however, will not have the same texture. Instead it’s more sponge-y. Sugar’s hygroscopic, or moisture absorbing, nature lends to the crunch that sweeteners ...

Salted Toffee Nut Cups

Salted Toffee Nut Cups

Before I get to the nitty gritty of how mind-blowingly tasty these are, let’s talk about trying to make toffee out of fake sugar. Basically, it’s not easy.It’s not that the task is difficult, toffee is two ingredients and you can make it in the microwave, but it does take your complete attention and diligence. Toffee making waits for no one and it can burn in an instant! So here are the basics: make sure you stir often, watch for a light caramel color to develop, remove when the mix is ...
