4 eggs separated

1 tsp vanilla

¾ cup milk

Pinch salt

½ cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour

½ cup Coconut Flour

1 cup Almond Flour

 

2 tsp baking powder

¾ cup Just Like Sugar Table Top (or your preferred sweetener)

1 lb dark cherries

4 oz (½ package) Hershey’s Kitchens Sugar Free Chocolate Chips

 

Topping (optional):

2 packs Sugar Free Pudding Mix

½ of an 8 oz tub of Sugar Free Cool Whip

Extra Cool Whip or Whipped Cream

Cherries to decorate

Instructions:

  • Pit and then slice cherries in half. A cherry-pitter makes it an easy task.
  • Heat oven to 350° F.
  • Grease 13×9 pan (coconut cooking spray).
  • Separate eggs.
  • Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl: Whole wheat pastry flour, coconut flour, almond flour, baking powder, Sweetener and set aside.
  • Soften butter until creamy, add sugar, beat until fluffy.
  • Add egg yolks, one at a time, continue to beat.
  • Add vanilla, beat.
  • Add about ¼ cup dry mixture at a time to your batter and beat. Then add some of the milk. Alternate between adding some of the dry mixture and adding some milk. Beat in between until everything is well incorporated into a smooth batter.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 25 minutes at 350° F.
  • After 25 minutes take cake from the oven. Add cherries and chocolate chips evenly to the top and return the cake back to the oven for 7 more minutes so the chocolate can melt.
  • If you so desire, top cake with Chocolate Mousse, a dab of whipped cream or Cool Whip and a cherry to garnish.
