- Almond flour – 2.5 cup
- Baking powder – 1 tbsp.
- Large eggs – 4
- Sweetener (equivalent to ½ cup of granulated sugar)
- Orange juice – ¾ cup
- Sugar-free apricot jam – ¾ cup
- Vegetable oil – 7/8 cup
- Dark chocolate – 7 Oz
Recipe Directions:Step 1
Whisk the eggs and sweetener together until thick and creamy. Then add orange juice and vegetable oil. Stir thoroughly. Then quickly mix in the baking powder and the almond flour. The cake batter is ready.
Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease a 10” springform pan.
Now, spread approximately 4 tablespoons of cake batter on the bottom of the springform pan to cover completely in a thin layer.
Bake until light brown (about 5-8 minutes).
Remove the cake from the oven and spoon another 4 tablespoons of batter into the pan, spreading it in an even thin layer over the first layer. Bake for 5-8 more minutes.
Spread 3 tbsp. of apricot jam on top of the second layer.
Continue baking layers one on top of the other in the same order. Every third layer should be the apricot jam. The last layer has to be batter.
After baking the last layer of the cake, let the cake fully cool on a wire rack, then remove from the pan.
Melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler or in a microwave oven. Spread another layer of the apricot jam on the cake. After that, pour the chocolate on top and spread to coat.
Refrigerate the cake until firm, then slice and serve. Bon appetite!
