What can be better than to please a loved one with a delicious dessert? This Keto Birthday cake is a great way to celebrate a birthday occasion! To prepare this delicious keto cake you don't need much effort. An hour of work with small interruptions and you are ready for the holiday.
Prepare the ingredients for the cake. Ideally take the eggs out of refrigerator 30 minutes before starting to let them reach room temperature.
Divide the eggs into yolks and whites.
In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients - almond flour, erythritol, zest, baking powder, and salt.
In the bowl with yolks add olive oil and vanilla extract. Mix and pour into the bowl with dry ingredients.
Stir well until the mix turns out into dense mixture.
Preheat the oven to 320 F.
Whip the egg whites to soft peaks using a blender.
Transfer the yolk mixture and flour into the whipped egg whites and stir gently. Try to preserve as much of the air bubbles as possible.
Line the bottom of the baking dish with parchment paper. A round cake pan with a 7 inch diameter is ideal for a small cake. Choose a smaller diameter if you prefer taller cakes.
Once the cake is ready, allow it to cool for 20-30 minutes.
While the cake is cooling down, prepare all the necessary ingredients for the cream icing.
Transfer mascarpone into a large bowl, add vanilla extract, whipping cream, erythritol and carefully mix with a whisk. The icing is ready.
Take the cooled cake, remove the parchment from the bottom of the cake and use a serrated knife to cut the crust into two equal crusts.
Everything is ready to assemble the cake. Now the main thing is not to rush and do everything neatly.
Put one crust on a plate or on a special podium for a cake. Distribute peanut butter evenly. Replace peanut butter with another nut butter if you don't like it or have an allergy to peanuts.
Take a disposable confectionery bag, cut off the corner, put the star-shaped piping and put the icing in the bag.
Cover the layer of peanut butter with the second crust.
Put the rest of the icing on the cake sides and smooth it with a butter knife or spatula.
Sprinkle the cake with cocoa powder through a fine mesh.
