    Plum/Apple/Rhubarb Crumble Cake

    Plum cake Ingredients:
    100 g almond flour + 3 tablespoons ground almonds
    1 tsp baking powder
    3 eggs
    coconut milk / cream as needed
    pinch of salt
    sweetener
    good pound plums/apples/rhubarb
    for the crumb topping:
    2 tbsp ghee
    almond flour
    sweetener
    ground cinnamon
    Preheat oven to 160 degrees (fan assisted)
    Beat 3 eggs until foamy - Mix in the almond flour and baking powder, stir in enough coconut milk or cream to give the dough a soft but still firm consistency; add a pinch of salt - sweeten to taste -
    Line and grease the base of a springform pan (26cm) with baking parchment, grease the sides of the tin.
    Press pastry into the tin.
    Wash plums, remove stones and cut in halves, place plums on top of the dough and sprinkle with cinnamon.
    Topping:
    Mix 2 tbsp ghee + almond flour + sweetener to resemble bread crumbs, sprinkle over the cake and bake for 30 - 40 minutes.
    Cover with aluminum foil half way through baking time to prevent the crumble from burning.

    Eat with cream/home made low carb custard/mascarpone custard
    Makes 12 slices = 4,7g carbs per portion (with plums, will be lower if made with rhubarb)

    The low carb tortilla I buy ready online. On each I put a bit of passata, cooked chopped gammon, lactose free cheese, sliced chestnut mushrooms, few salad leaves, sprinkle of rosemary, salt and pepper and drizzle of good olive oil. It only took about 7 mins in oven. And it was quite nice :)

    That does look really good. Where do you get your low carb torilla? I really like pizza with roquefort, sliced pear and rocket, miss it like mad.

    I get it from avidlite. Low carb mega store has them too. I usually get the mamma lupe ones or the tortilla factory. They are both good and are 3 net carb each

    Claire87, what flour did you use for the pizza please as I think that CarbQuik is American is it not?

    Yep, I think it is, and it's not cheap, but I got it here: http://www.avidlite.co.uk/acatalog/Carbquik-Baking-Mix--1360g-box-ALB091.html

    It's 1.3kg though, so it lasts for a while. I figure a dominos cost me 16.99 and this will make a lot of them and take the money out of my 'treat yourself' funds for it.

    You can' use any flour though. My first attempt was with soya flour, which did rise perfectly fine and tasted good, but the problem was I needed a lot more spelt in it and the carbs per pizza were on the high side. I also needed to add 6 extra tablespoons of spelt to the final dough to make it into a dough that I could work with. The end result was great, but the carbs were more like 80g per batch, rather than the 38g per batch that the CarbQuik delivered.

    Testing out different flours on this recipe is certainly an option because the spelt, garlic powder and onion powder all add flavour to the dough. But really strong flavoured flours, like soya, may need a bit more spelt to get the taste right.

    I hope this helps :)

    Cabbage puree - hard to believe that this is so delicious

    Shred or just tear the cabbage, add a tbsp of water, simmer for a couple of minutes, add about 1/2 cup of cream, season with salt, pepper and either curry powder or paprika, a stock cube and simmer until tender, use stick blender to puree.

    or slightly different

    Shred or just tear the cabbage, add a tbsp of water, simmer for a couple of minutes, season with salt, pepper and either curry powder or paprika, a stock cube and simmer until tender, stir in creme fraiche, heat through, use stick blender to puree.

  19. I just had a lovely dinner. Not a proper recipe as such, just made it up, but very tasty so thought I'd share.

    Stir fried veg with peanut sauce and toasted halloumi

    Stir fried veg:
    beansprouts
    bell pepper (cut into strips)
    fine beans (parboiled a bit before frying)
    mushrooms

    Peanut sauce:
    1 tsp root ginger (finely chopped)
    2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
    1 tbsp peanut butter
    1 tbsp philadelphia cheese
    splash of soy sauce
    black pepper
    water (to loosen the sauce)

    Stir fry the veg, stir through the peanut sauce, top with grilled halloumi and a few cashews for crunch.

    Might try it with a bit of chili in the sauce next time. Scoffed it before taking a photo...ooops! :oops:

    Sounds nice tho I might replace the halloumi with some crispy fried tofu ( wrap the tofu in kitchen paper to absorb as much water as possible then cut the tofu into cubes and fry in coconut or rice bran oil until crisp)
