Do you know what a keto meal is? Well, it is very simple, they are foods that do not include the traditional wheat flour or sweeten with processed white sugar. With this clear, it is time to start.
50 grams of coconut flour,
Natural sweetener to taste,
3 tablespoons of salted butter,
50 grams of lemon,
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 pinch of salt.
1. The first step to begin preparing this delicious recipe is to have a bowl on hand. In this you must pour the coconut flour in the company of the desired amount of the natural sweetener to use.
2. We continue, adding the salt and the baking powder previously passed through a strainer to avoid lumps in the mixture. The content must be very well unified with the ingredients already added.
3. Next, the eggs are incorporated into the content and mixed very well.
You can see as you mix that the preparation will form a dough. This is because coconut flour has great absorption capacity.
4. Followed by this, you should grate, on the mixture, the shell of the lemons, but only the green or yellow part.
This depending on the lemon you have, the white part should not be included because it would give the dessert a bitter taste.
5. Likewise, you must extract the juice from the lemons to later add them to the mixture in question.
If you do not have lemons, you can use oranges, the fruit complement you want or simply leave it with its original flavor that it has as its base.
6. You must melt the butter and add it to the mixture to begin beating. Mix all the ingredients until you get a homogeneous mixture.
7. At the end of the whipping process, a mold with greaseproof paper should be prepared.
8. Pour the mixture and proceed to take it to the oven for about 40 to 50 minutes at a constant temperature of 180 °Celsius.
9. You must take into account something very important and that is that after the first 30 minutes, you must use melted butter and apply it with a brush on top of the cake.
This motivated that the flour of coconut It tends to dry out excessively, so it can be prevented from hardening and making our cake take on a very beautiful golden color.
10. Likewise, in the last 10 minutes of the cooking process we supply heat only to the upper part of the cake.
This so that it can end up having that spectacular golden color. So we would have readied our sweet and light keto lemon cake.
11. Take it out of the kitchen and when it is cold, unmold and divide into portions now serve.
Substitution of some foods...
Remember that this is a low-carbohydrate cake, and that we are replacing conventional flour with coconut flour. Almond flour may also help.
Regarding sugar, you can use the sweetener of your preference, just consider that these can change their flavor when they come into contact with heat.
I recommend that you then make use of sucrose, which remains sweet long after cooking.
