INGREDIENTS

Frosting:

 

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray an 8-inch round cake pan with cooking spray and dust with cocoa.

  • Whisk almond flour, coconut flour, stevia blend, flaxseed meal, espresso powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Beat together eggs and butter using a large stand mixer or electric hand mixer and mixing bowl until thoroughly combined. Reduce speed to low and gradually add the almond flour mixture. Continue mixing and add 1/4 cup almond milk at a time until mixture is thick and frosting-like in consistency. Carefully spread batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven.

  • Meanwhile for the frosting, combine cream cheese, butter, stevia blend, cocoa, vanilla extract, espresso powder, liquid stevia, and salt in a large bowl using an electric mixer.

  • Remove cake from the oven when a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Allow cake to cool completely, about 1 hour.

  • Frost cake.
