Sugar Free Almond & Beurre Noisette Cake Bites


Sugar Free Almond & Beurre Noisette Cake Bites. Delightfully simple and just 1g carbs in each one.

It’s a lovely keto recipe to save for when you have leftover egg whites. Albumens are at their best when 2-3 days out of the shell, so there’s no rush to use them straight away.

Here’s a selection of my other recipes that require egg whites only: Italian Amaretti, French Meringues, Orange Amaretti BonBons, Merookies, Coconut Macaroons, Strawberry Pavlova, Nocciolini di Chivasso.

How to Make Sugar Free Almond & Beurre Noisette Cake Bites

Prepare a 12-hole muffin/cupcake/Yorkshire pudding tray by smearing butter into the holes and then coating them with a little flour. You can use any low-carb flour you like for this, but not ground almonds.

The beurre noisette (brown butter) is a cinch. Simmer the butter in a small pan, giving it a swirl from time to time, until the froth has gone and you see brown flecks forming. This will take just a few minutes, so don’t take your eyes off it, as it will go from lovely and caramelised to burned in seconds.

Whip room temperature albumens to snow consistency, incorporate mixed dry ingredients, then the cooled beurre noisette and vanilla extract.

Spoon the batter equally into your prepared tray holes, and add flaked almonds, pressing them lightly into the top of the batter. Toasted flaked almonds taste amazing, so if you can only find raw, grill or roast them for a few minutes until golden and fragrant, as a first step.

Bake, cool, and enjoy after dusting with a little keto icing ‘sugar’.

I recommend using a flexible nylon palette tool to prise the cake bites off if they're stuck, so as not to scratch the pan.
