Create the perfect low-carb brunch recipe with organic rhubarb, almond flour, a keto-friendly sweetener, and organic eggs (of course).

By: All Day I Dream About Food

Ingredients

For the cake:

  • 3 cups rhubarb, sliced
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated erythritol sweetener, divided
  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup unflavored whey protein powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 large Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the crumb topping:

  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons pecans, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon granulated erythritol sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature

Directions

To make the cake:

Step 1

In a medium bowl, toss together the sliced rhubarb and 2 tablespoons of the sweetener. Set aside.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 9-inch springform pan very well.

Step 3

In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, remaining 1/2 cup of sweetener, whey protein powder, baking powder, and salt.

Step 4

Stir in the melted butter, eggs, almond milk, and vanilla extract until well combined. Spread 2/3 of the batter in prepared pan. Sprinkle with the rhubarb and dot the remaining batter over in small spoonfuls. Bake 30 minutes.

To make the crumb topping:

Step 1

While the cake is baking, combine the crumb topping ingredients in a small bowl, cutting in the room temperature butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the cake and cover with foil.

Step 2

Bake another 20 to 30 minutes, until the edges are golden brown and the center is firm to the touch. Remove and let cool, then run a sharp knife around the inside of the pan to loosen. Remove the sides.

Can previously frozen rhubarb be used for this recipe, and if so, should I drain it?

Hi Betty! Absolutely you can try previously frozen rhubarb. We do recommend completely thawing it in the refrigerator first and draining it as much as you are able to. Please let us know how it turns out!

I used heavy whipping cream in stead of the almond milk (because that's all I had in the house) and I used egg white powder because I don't use whey protein powder. worked out great for me. I do want to try the Monk Fruit Golden next time in the crumb topping to see how that works. Thanks for the recipe ...

That's awesome, Judy! The heavy cream probably made the cake even more moist and decadent - yum! Thanks for giving the recipe a try. We're glad it turned out so well!

Hi Carolle, you can definitely use a Pyrex dish - the 9" x 9" dish should do the trick. We recommend lining it with parchment paper, then greasing the parchment paper very well. This should prevent the cake from sticking. Frozen rhubarb works great for this recipe and shouldn't change the outcome. Let us know how it goes!

Glad to hear that you were able to successfully substitute the monk fruit, Katie-Rose! It sounds like it turned out absolutely delicious!

Just made this tonight, haven't ate any yet (it's for tomorrow), and it is still cooling on the cupboard. It was either this, or yet another pan of ketofied rhubarb crisp... One thing wrong with this recipe, that I notice immediately, is that you did not add any stevia to the erythritol. So I added at a rate of 1/2 tsp to 1 cup of erythritol (powered or liquid). I used a few "donks" of powdered stevia mixed with the erythritol used on the rhubarb and the crumble toppings. I decided to use the toffee flavored liquid stevia in the cake batter, as I wanted more of a brown sugar taste to it. After mixing up the crumble topping, I decided that it didn't look like it was going to be enough, so I increased it by another 50%.
