  • 3 tbsp shredded carrot
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp walnuts chopped and toasted


  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp powdered Erythritol


  • Mix all of the cake ingredients together in a mixing bowl to form the batter.
  • Lightly grease a microwave safe ramekin or baking dish that’s large enough for the ingredients to double in size as it cooks.
  • Pour the batter into the dish and microwave for 2 minutes. Check for doneness by lightly touching the top of the cake. It should bounce back and not feel loose or uncooked. The very top might still be a bit wet to the touch, but will be spongy. If it’s loose or uncooked, put it back in for another 30 seconds.


  • This recipe is not designed for coconut flour.
  • You can use your choice of sugar substitute: erythritol, xylitol, allulose, swerve.
  • Can be split into 2 separate cakes.
