Lemon Crock Pot Cake

lemonThis is a good serviceable dessert. It comes together easily and of course takes care of itself in a slow cooker. The flavor is quite good, the texture fine.

You can add a fruit puree as a topping, or whipped cream. A ganache might be quite effective as well.

This looks rather plain, but dressed up with a topping, it becomes a fine company dessert.

Enjoy.

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
3 tablespoons sweetener of your choice
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (optional)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup whipping cream
Juice from two lemons (about 2 tablespoons)
Zest from two lemons
2 eggs
TOPPING:
3 tablespoons granulated sweetener of your choice
1/2 cup boiling water
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons lemon juice
INSTRUCTIONS:
    1. Combine almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, baking powder, and xanthan gum in medium bowl.
    2. Whisk together butter, whipping cream, lemon juice, zest and egg in large bowl.
    3. Add dry mix to wet mix and combine until well blended. Spread into 2-4 quart slow cooker crock lined with aluminum foil.
TOPPING:
  1. Combine all topping ingredients in bowl and pour over cake batter in crock.
  2. Cover crock pot and cook on high setting about 2-3 hours or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  3. Serve warm with fresh fruit and whipped cream, if desired.

NOTES: Since slow cookers come in so many sizes and powers, it’s rather difficult to give the correct time for cooking. But since slow cooking is slow, you have plenty of wiggle room. Just start checking early and every fifteen minutes or so after the first hour and a half or so.
