Low Carb Spice Cake – Kim’s Club

SPice Cake Low Carb

I was craving a slice of gingerbread with my cuppa in the afternoon so came up with this!  It is quick to make if you use the microwave, and very good that way, a bit more of a steamed texture than when it is baked.  Not feeling so deprived now while hubby is having his tea and scones!

Low Carb Spice Cake - Kim's Club
A moist, dark, spice cake reminiscent of gingerbread.
Recipe type: Snacks - breakfast - dessert
Serves: 12
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 50g/1/2cup coconut Flour
  • 50g/1/2cup ground almonds
  • ¼tsp salt
  • 2tsp ground ginger
  • 2tsp mixed spice
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • ½cup 50g Sukrin Gold (or Swerve)
  • 1tbsp Truvia (or 2 drops liquid stevia)
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 40g greek yogurt
  • ⅓ cup of prepared coffee
  • 50g/2tbsp blackstrap molasses (or black treacle) *
  • 3 eggs
  1. Preheat oven to Gas mark 5 - 190C - 375F **
  2. Grease and baseline a loaf pan with baking parchment (or grease a silicon loaf pan).
  3. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix all wet ingredients. Combine both mixes together well.
  4. **Bake about an hour or until toothpick comes out clean. (I actually baked for 40 minutes, then was in a hurry so finished in a microwave using a silicon pan - 3 minutes later it was done perfectly! Just an FYI.....)
  5. **I also tried JUST the microwave and it took 5-7 minutes, depending on your machine. Very nice - a bit like Boston Brown Bread - more of a steamed texture.
For dairy free you can substitute coconut yogurt (or any dairy-free yogurt) for the greek yogurt. For Paleo you can subsitute coconut sugar for the Sukrin Gold.

*Carb count is using molasses. If using Black treacle the net carbs per slice will be 3g.

      Hi Sjanette! Ginger, cinnamon and clove. If adding separately then to your taste. I would use only a small amount of clove and equal cinnamon and ginger. Nutmeg would be nice too. Enjoy!
