Apple compots are fairly high in carbs, but in a 10 – 12 portion cake this is a low carb cake in by books. Lots of nuts, no flour but does have a lot of eggs in it.This cake is so simple to make.
200 ml Apple compot, (mine was apple and peach)
Juice of 1 lemon
8 Whole eggs
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla essence
300gms mixed ground nuts
50gms flaked almonds
1tsp Baking Powder
Put all the ingredients (except the flaked almonds) in a mixing bowl
Use a little butter to grease an 8 inch baking tin and dust with ground almonds.
Pour the mix into the tin and sprinkle on the almond flakes and bake at 180°C for 40 minutes
Put on a wire rack to cool.
These figures are based on a generous 8 portion gateaux
