Lowcarb Coffee and walnut cake with clotted cream.

100 grams of ground almonds
100 grams of walnuts
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon of melted butter
2 tablespoons of double cream

1 tablespoon of instant coffee
100 grams of clotted cream

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Melt the butter I used a Pyrex jug, add the eggs, cream. Place 1 tablespoon of instant coffee in a cup and pour some boiling water over the coffee, keep water to a minimum, just enough to melt the coffee. Then add the dry ingredients and mix. Microwave in a 700watt for 5 minutes. Allow to cool and cut in half. Spread on clotted cream and add walnut halves. Serves four, around five carbs per portion.

Hi - I've just found your site while searching for recipes to tempt my diabetic husband. We've only just found out about low carb eating for diabetes, and he's feeling a little deprived, so thank you :)

When you say to mix all the dry ingredients at the beginning of this recipe, does that include the 100g walnuts, with extra walnuts for the filling and topping?

Hi Karen

Sorry to get back to you so late. I almost never check this blog out, a big mistake.

The walnuts are not added to the dry mix. I should take more time to get the instructions better explained.

Thank you for your interest. And good luck and health to you and your husband.
