Ingredients

  • 2 large strawberries

Cake:

  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 large eggs, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia glycerite, divided (equals 2 tablespoons sugar)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, divided
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, divided

Topping:

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon stevia glycerite (equals 1 tablespoon sugar)
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Wash and dry the strawberries. Slice into thin slices. Place in a small bowl and allow to stand at room temperature while you make the cake.
  • For each of the two cakes, in a small microwave safe bowl (mine measures 2 inches on the bottom and 4 inches at the top), use a fork to mix together 1 tablespoon melted butter, 1 large egg, 1/4 teaspoon stevia glycerite, 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon coconut flour and 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, until very smooth.
  • Microwave each cake on high for 90 seconds, until puffed and set.
  • Gently, with a small knife, loosen each cake's edges and remove from the bowl onto a plate. Slice crosswise into two slices, the bottom one thicker and the top one thinner.
  • Place the heavy cream, 1/4 teaspoon stevia glycerite and 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract in a mini food processor's bowl. Process on high until the cream turns into whipped cream, about 1 minute.
  • For each cake, top the bottom layer of cake with half of the sliced strawberries. Spoon whipped cream on top, then top with the second slice of cake. Serve immediately.
