Equipment

  • Mixing bowl
  • Parchment or baking paper
  • Baking dish 8x8 inches 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup organic butter, melted
  • 3 1/2 cup organic almond flour, divided
  • 2 cup powdered erythritol, divided
  • 6 medium, organic lemons (for juice and lemon zest)
  • 6 large organic eggs

All the above ingredients can be found both online and in our store located at 47 Maroubra Road, Maroubra. 

Instructions

  • Mix butter, 1 cup almond flour, 1/4 cup erythritol, and a pinch of salt. Press evenly into an 8×8″ parchment paper-lined baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes at 190 degrees C. Then, let cool for 10 minutes.
  • Into a bowl, zest one of the lemons, then juice all 3 lemons, add the eggs, 3/4 cup erythritol, 3/4 cup almond flour & pinch of salt. Combine to make filling.
  • Pour the filling onto the crust & bake for 25 minutes.
  • Serve with lemon slices and a sprinkle of erythritol.
  • Leave to cool completely before cutting or removing from the pan. Almond flour cakes are fragile when hot, but they firm up as they cool down.  

NOTES

  • The cake is only gently sweet. Please taste and increase sweetener to your liking if necessary before you place in the oven.
  • If adding vanilla extract to crust is something you’re used to, feel free to mix 1/2 tsp into the crust.
  • Ensure the bars cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting.
  • Cutting the bars with dental floss is a GREAT way to get a clean cut.
  • Wait until the cake is COMPLETELY cooled (at least 30 minutes) before dusting with powdered sweetener and cutting. If it's still warm, the erythritol melts into an unsightly sludge.
