Today I had a tub of double cream in my fridge which goes out of date soon so I decided to have a go at Orange Jelly Cake Bars as the main ingredient in the cake I love is double cream.
I love taking recipes from the Keto Fitness Club recipe library and tweek them to either use up the ingredients I need to use or changing slightly as I’ve really learned what I do and don’t like with my Keto baking.
My favourite basic cake is the Classic Vanilla Muffin which is in the WTF cookbook (Where’s The Fat) and I’ve used this to make Victoria Sponge, Lemon sponge, and orange jelly cakes too. I recently bought new mini cake molds so I wanted to see what the vanilla muffin mix would be like there.
I made the jelly first in the molds and once set saved them in the fridge while I made the cakes. The full recipe is again in the free recipe library and in the Creative Bakes book.
The classic vanilla muffin mix worked really well in the mold, I just trimmed the tops off and halved them before adding the jelly and drizzling on melted chocolate. The effect was stunning and they are perfect bite size mouthfuls of orangey goodness.
That left a bowl of cake offcuts.. Now what could I do with those? The perfect answer is again in the Creative Bakes book, and I made the Tiffin with my offcuts to replace the microwave cookies which appear in the recipe.
So that’s two great cakes made. Now to prevent over eating I always freeze my cakes, and most need a short time to defrost or taste really great straight from the freezer. It just means I don’t sit and eat cakes all day. And when my husband inevitably brings home his favourite chocolate or cakes I can just grab my pre made treats from the freezer.
What’s your favourite Keto cake? Please share recipe links as I love trying new things.
