Blackberry Crock Pot Cake

I don’t know if I’ll ever get the hang of low carb baking.

Hubby has been covering us up picking blackberries.

I have canned jams and covered ice creams. My fingernails are turning that blue color.

Hubby suggested pie but I knew my low carb pie crust would be a bust, so I searched the internet and found this Slow Cooker Raspberry Coconut Cake.

Of course it was raspberry and I had blackberry. I also had a smaller 4 cup crock I wanted to use. How hard could it be to cut the recipe in half to fit in this little crock? Of course this little crock has no temperature gauge. It is full force or nothing.

The original recipe called to cook on low. I tried it anyway.

Well it didn’t turn out too bad but when I dumped the little cake out the sides had browned a pretty color but the top was this yucky wettish blue. So I made a cream cheese and coconut icing glaze to try and hide it

My blackberries were a little tart so I could have upped the sweetner but overall it wasn’t bad. I don’t believe I’ll ever be a star low carb baker however.

Blackberry Crock Pot Cake

1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup sweetener of choice
1/8 cup powdered egg whites
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
2 large eggs
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup fresh blackberries

Grease the inside of a 4 cup slow cooker.

Whisk together the almond flour, coconut, sweetener, powdered egg whites, baking soda and salt.

Stir in eggs, melted coconut oil, coconut milk, and vanilla extract. Fold in the berries.

Pour the batter in a prepared slow cooker and cook about 3 hours. Use a tooth pick to make sure it is done. The pick will pull out clean. Turn off slow cooker and let cake cool.

For the glaze
4 ounces cream cheese
Sweetener to taste
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/8 cup shredded coconut

Beat cream cheese, milk, and sweetener with a hand mixer and pour over cake. Sprinkle with remaining coconut.
