Low Carb – Strawberry Cake

Strawberry Cake

Let me first make it clear… i am not a fan of cakes. I love to bake cakes, i love to experiment new recipes and play around with ingredients. But i dont fancy eating cakes after the initial hot soft bite when it comes out of the oven.

This low carb strawberry cake is my all time favourite ‘fresh from oven’ cake. I love it because the rich flavour from fresh strawberries and this low carb version is extra yummy you’ll forget its a low carb version.. Low Carb Strawberry Cake is a   Dessert that has a base of moist gluten-free and dairy-free almond flour cake to support the stars of fresh ripe strawberries and sweetened whipped cream.

Only use fresh strawberries, the canned strawberries most likely has tons of sugars in it and the freeze dried strawberries has all the juices dried up.
