Ingredients

For the Cake

  • 4 eggs approx. 220g
  • 1 pinch cream of tartar
  • 50 g erythritol/xylitol or sweetener of choice
  • 170 g almond meal
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 100 g cream cheese
  • 100 g softened salted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80 g ripe banana

For the Icing

  • 100 g salted butter
  • 150 g cream cheese
  • 40 g powdered erythritol xylitol or choice of sweetener
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar

Instructions

For the cake

  • Preheat oven to 150C fan forced or 160C conventional and line a 20cm cake tin with baking paper or grease well with butter
  • Separate egg whites from yolks, set aside the egg yolks for step 6
  • Place egg whites and cream of tartar into the mixer and insert butterfly, whip 2 minutes / speed 3 / mc off
  • Add sweetener, whip 2 minutes / speed 3 / mc off
  • Remove whipped egg whites and set aside, remove butterfly
  • Without washing the bowl, add all remaining ingredients including the yolks, excluding the egg whites, blend 30 seconds / speed 4 / mc on
  • Scrape down, blend 10 seconds / speed 4 / mc on
  • Add half of the whipped egg whites to the cake mixture, blend 10 seconds / speed 4 / mc off, scrape down and also loosen any mixture from the bottom of the bowl and under the blades
  • Add the remaining egg whites, blend 10 seconds / speed 4 / mc off
  • If there is still visible unmixed egg whites, using your spatula fold this into the cake mixture to combine. Transfer the cake mixture into the lined tin
  • Remove any remaining mixture from the blades by spinning the empty bowl 2 seconds / speed 10 / mc on, add the extra mixture to the tin
  • Bake 30-45 minutes checking cake from 30 minutes onwards. You’ll know it’s done as it won’t wobble, and a skewer will come out clean
  • Turn off the oven, leave the fan running and oven door ajar and leave the cake in the oven for a further 10 minutes. This will help prevent the cake sinking
  • Take the cake out of the oven, allow cake to cool fully then run a butter knife around the edges to loosen and carefully remove from tin

For the icing

  • Add all ingredients to mixer 1 minute / speed 3 / mc on, or beat in stand mixer with whisk attachment until light & fluffy.
  • Pipe or spread on cakes as desired
  • Store the cake in a container, refrigerated up to 5 days or frozen up to 3 months

I make my family banana bread often but I always miss out as obviously its not a keto food. I was so pleased to try this recipe. Its really light and fluffy and so delicious. I followed instructions perfectly but it still deflated at the end but I don’t care still tastes great. I prefer it with no icing and a spread of butter
