Quick and Easy White Cake

Earlier this week you may have seen my Tweet about this cake.  As I've said before, almost half the time, I forget to take pictures of the things I make.  When I do take pictures, I snap them quickly on my iPhone.  I don't own a nice camera and I really have no interest in setting up fabulous photo shoots. So it's not really a surprise that I didn't think about taking a picture until after I had finished my slice of cake!  I do that all the time!

So I went back into the kitchen, put the cake on the counter and took a picture.

This is a cake I mixed up ever so quickly in the blender.  Like all low-carb and sugar free baking, it turns out a little bit different every time I make it, due to having different brands of products.

Quick White Cake

1/2 c butter (1 stick), soft
4 eggs
2 t vanilla
4 T half and half
2 T water (I had to use a little more as my batter was pretty thick and my blender didn't like that)
2 cups fine ground almond flour (I used Honeyville brand for this)
1 c oat flour (I have Bob's Red Mill brand on hand)
1/2 c whey protein powder (Isopure brand is the one I used)
Mixture of your favorite sweeteners in powder/crystal form;  erythritol, xylitol
             I used 3/4 c Just Like Sugar with 2 T xylitol and 1 t liquid SuperRose)
1/2 t favorite liquid sweetener or Stevia (see above, I used 1 t liquid Superrose for mine)
4 t baking powder
1 t salt

Preheat oven to 375.  Grease or line 2 - 9" pans (or make cupcakes).  Blend the butter and sweeteners and vanilla until smooth.  Scrape down with a spatula and add the rest of the ingredients.  Blend until smooth, scraping the sides once or twice.  I had to add a little more water (noted above) as my batter was very thick and my blender didn't like that.  Pour equally into two pans.  Turn the oven down to 325 degrees and bake 20-30 minutes until the center of your cakes test done.  Cool for 5 minutes then turn out of the pans to cool complete before frosting.

This is my breakfast the next morning;  a slice of cake with hot coffee!  At least this time I remembered to snap a picture before I ate it!
