How do you bake a cake in the heat of summer? Cooking it in your slow cooker of course! We all love a just baked homemade cake, but doing so in South Florida in the middle of summer, well that’s just crazy.

Don’t get me wrong I use my oven year round, but in August the last thing I want to do is heat up my kitchen. It takes hours for the house to cool down and that’s not fun.

So baking it in a slow cooker makes so much more sense. This recipe is adapted from  All Day I Dream about food and makes a very moist rich cake. With the added bonus of keeping the house cool in the summer.

  • 1 cup of swerve or other sugar substitute
  • ½  cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup plain whey protein powder (low carb)

Instructions

  1. Well grease the insert of a 6 quart slow cooker.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, sweetener, cocoa powder, whey protein powder, baking powder and salt.
  3. Stir in butter, eggs, whipping cream and vanilla extract and combine well. Its important to mix on high for a few moments to add volume to this cake. I love the texture of this cake it is the closest to a regular cake I have made.
  4. Pour into the slow cooker and cook on low for 3 hours.
  5. Allow to cool 20 to 30 minutes, serve warm. Serve with low carb ice cream or lightly sweetened whipped cream.

    Just wanted you to know that I have tried this recipe several times. Today was the best result of all. Instead of using the crockpot I baked the cake in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes, plus I used coconut oil instead of butter (only because I was out of butter) and for the eggs I separated the egg white from the yolk. I whipped the egg whites until stiff and folded into the mixture. It was very good and super moist.
