RASPBERRY-ALMOND CRUMB CAKE
3 1/2 ounces almond flour (3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons)
1/3 cup granular Splenda *
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg white
1/3 cup sugar free raspberry jam (or flavor of your choice)
3/4 ounce sliced almonds (2 tablespoons)
In a medium bowl, mix the almond flour, 1/3 cup granular Splenda and salt; cut in the butter until you get coarse crumbs. I found that using my fingers was the most efficient for doing this. Set aside 1/2 of the crumb mixture for the topping and keep it chilled until needed.
To the remaining almond flour mixture, add the baking powder, baking soda, sour cream, heavy cream, vanilla and whole egg. Whisk until well blended. The batter will be very thin. Pour into a greased 8-inch round cake pan.
In the same mixing bowl, whisk the cream cheese, 2 tablespoons granular Splenda or equivalent liquid, almond extract and the egg white until smooth. This mixture will be very thin. Pour the cream cheese mixture all over the cake batter, trying to distribute it as evenly as possible. Distribute the jam in small dollops all over the top of the cake batter. Sprinkle the reserved topping and sliced almonds over the top.
Bake at 350º 30 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and the top springs back when lightly touched. Cool before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
Makes 8 servings

* Granular Splenda is required here. Liquid would not get evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

This is so pretty and delicate. It would be lovely for breakfast or tea. I used blackberry sugar free preserves for mine, but you can use any flavor. The servings are small, but satisfying.
