P3 Chocolate Brownie Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting and Strawberries

This is the full cake we ended up with for my son's 6th birthday. I tested the recipe as cupcakes first, which were a hit. The final cake turned out fabulous. My son's comment as he finished his piece was, "Thanks for making this awesome cake for me, mom! And thanks for making it healthy so even *you* could have some." Mission accomplished.

Chocolate Brownie Cake

2 cups raw Almonds or Pecans, ground (or you can use Almond Meal)
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 cup Erythritol, like Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Zero or Z-Sweet

Mix the above well, then add:

1/2 cup (1 stick) Butter, melted
4 Eggs, beaten
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 cup Water as needed

Preheat oven to 350*. Divide batter between 2 greased (not floured!) 9-inch cake pans. Bake about 25 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Invert onto cooling racks and cool completely.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting (this will frost one layer so double the recipe if you want frosting inside as well as on top)

8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
40ish drops Liquid Stevia as desired
1/4 cup Milk or Cream as needed to get the right texture

Berries for garnish, if desired. I sliced strawberries for in between the layers which was delicious, but the cake didn't stay together well since it wasn't sticky. More layers of frosting is never a bad idea, in my opinion, so if you want it to stay together, I recommend frosting one or both interior layers as well as the top.

Ok, I made it, but used almond flour. It turned out a little dry. Do you havevany suggestions?

Lianne said...

It's not a super moist cake, and it does crumble easily because of the almond flour. The frosting is necessary because of that, in my opinion. You can try adding some milk or cream to the batter before baking. I prefer to make cupcakes so I can make sure there is plenty of frosting.
