KETO GERMAN CAKE
COCONUT PECAN CARAMEL
CAKE BATTER – 4 large Eggs – 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk – 1/4 cup Heavy Cream – 1/2 cup Melted Coconut Oil – 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract – 2 cups Almond Flour – 1/4 cup Coconut Flour – 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – 2 teaspoons Expresso Powder – 2/3 cup Erythritol – 3 teaspoons Baking Powder – 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt COCONUT PECAN FILLING – 1 cup Heavy Cream – 3 large Egg Yolks – 1/2 cup Brown Erythritol – 1/2 cup Butter – 1/2 teaspoon Xanthan Gum – 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract – 1 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut – 1/2 cup Chopped Pecan
Mix Wet Ingredients
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, almond milk, heavy cream, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
Combine Dry Ingredients
In another large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, espresso powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, erythritol, baking powder, and salt.
Whisk Dry Ingredients
Whisk until all the ingredients are evenly combined and no lumps show.
Make a Well
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the liquid ingredients.
Stir with a spatula to combine until the batter is smooth.
Evenly divide the batter into the two round pans - it's roughly 2 cups of batter per pan.
Bake for 35-40 minutes in an oven preheated to 350°F (180°C), swapping pan places halfway through baking to ensure the cake layers bake evenly.
Prepare Pecan Filling
In a saucepan, whisk together heavy cream, egg yolks, and brown erythritol. Add butter to the saucepan and bring the saucepan over medium heat.
Once the mixture is on a light boil, sprinkle xanthan gum, stir in, reduce to low heat and keep cooking for 3-5 minutes until the mixture thickens.
Add Pecan and Coconut
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, toasted chopped pecans, and unsweetened shredded coconut.
Assemble the Cake
Place the first cake layer onto a cake stand. Add half the coconut-pecan filling. Place the second cake layer on top and add the remaining coconut pecan frosting on top.
