Valentine's Day: A Day of Romance
Lupercalia survived the initial rise of Christianity but was outlawed—as it was deemed “un-Christian”–at the end of the 5th century, when Pope Gelasius declared February 14 St. Valentine's Day. It was not until much later, however, that the day became definitively associated with love., if you make this cake yours is bound to be a winner! Bake in a heart shaped mould if you can.
- 1 1/2 cups fine almond flour.
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder.
- 2 tbsp dutch cocoa or additional regular.
- 2 1/4 tsp baking powder.
- 1/2 tsp salt.
- 1/3 cup water or milk of choice.
- 3 eggs, including the vegan option listed earlier in the post.
- 1/3 cup granulated erythritol or any keto friendly sweetener.
- 1 +1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a sponge tin, or line with parchment. Stir all ingredients together very well, then spread into the pan. If needed, use a second sheet of parchment to smooth down. Bake 14 minutes on the center rack (some ovens require more baking time, so continue cooking until firm if needed).
