Hey, you. Yes, you. Did you know that Valentine’s Day is almost here?

Do you want something spectacular, yet simple, to present to your loved one?
Ta da! Check this out!

I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of the new vanilla flavoured monkfruit sweetener by Locako through the amazing Keto Lane.
My food brain went into hyperdrive and all of a sudden I couldn’t live without this vanilla flavoured treat.

Layers of soft, vanilla pastry are filled with fresh berries and vanilla cream. It serves six, but I won’t hold you to that.

You know the drill;
Make it. Post it. Tag me

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • Pastry:
  • 1/4 cup of coconut flour

  • 2 tablespoons of powdered Locako Vanilla Monk Fruit Sweetener

  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder

  • 125 grams of shredded mozzarella

  • 30 grams of cream cheese

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, melted

  • Filling:
  • 1 cup of cream

  • 1 tablespoon of Locako Vanilla Monk Fruit Sweetener

  • 1 cup of fresh raspberries

  • Garnish:
  • Extra raspberries for garnish

  • 1 tablespoon of Locako Vanilla Sweetener

Directions

  • Make a heart template out of thick paper.
  • Pre-heat oven to 170⁰ C, fan forced
  • Make the dough by placing the mozzarella and cream cheese into a large microwave safe bowl.
  • Heat on high for 1 minute, remove and stir.
  • Continue this in 30 second bursts until the mixture is smooth and melted.
  • Sift the coconut flour and baking powder together into the cheese and add the egg, coconut oil and vanilla.
  • Mix well to combine and knead the dough for a minute or so to make it really smooth.
  • Roll out into a large rectangle.
  • Lay the template over the dough and cut out your heart shapes.
  • Lay them on large lined trays and cook for approx. 12 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • Whip the cream with the vanilla sweetener and layer your cake with hearts and raspberries.
  • Finish off by blitzing a spoonful of the vanilla sweetener in a spice grinder or bullet blender to make powder.
  • Fill the centre of the cake with extra berries and dust with the powdered sweetener.
  • Gaze into the eyes of your beloved as you spoon-feed it to them…or eat it off your lap in front of Netflix.
