MAKES 2 MINI CAKES

1 Serving (1 Cake): 227 Calories, 2g Net Carbs, 22g Fat, 6g Protein


For the cake:
Unsalted butter, for greasing
2 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
1 egg
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp granular erythritol
¼ tsp lemon zest
½ tsp baking powder
4 Tbsp almond flour

For the frosting:
½ Tbsp salted butter
½ oz cream cheese
2 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
1 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
2 Tbsp powdered erythritol
Lemon wheels, for garnish (optional)

Grease 2 (4-oz) ovenproof ramekins with the unsalted butter.

Mix the wet cake ingredients in a small bowl--whipping cream, egg, and lemon juice. Then add the dry ingredients--erythritol, lemon zest, baking powder, and flour--and mix to combine.

Pour the batter into the prepared ramekins and microwave on high for 2 full minutes. Let the cake sit while you blend all the frosting ingredients in a mini-blender or nutribullet.

Spread the frosting on the warm cake, garnish with a lemon wheel or additional lemon zest, and enjoy!
