Gluten Free Party Recipe: Cherry, Pistachio Low Carb Cake

2 x Melinda’s GFG Low Carb Muffin Mix
4 eggs
120ml oil of choice (we used macadamia)
200ml milk of choice
300g cherries, pitted, finely chopped
Juice and finely grated rind of 1 lemon or orange
2/3 cup (90g) unsalted pistachio kernels, lightly toasted, chopped
Powdered sweetener, to dust

Juice and rind of 1 orange
1 tbs sweetener of choice (we used erythritol/monk fruit blend)

Preheat the oven to 170°C fan. Grease and line a 20cm springform cake pan with baking paper, then wrap the outside with foil (this will prevent batter from leaking).

Toss cherries in some of the muffin mix (this will help prevent them sinking), shake off excess and set aside.

In a large bowl prepare the muffin mixes together as per the packet; add the citrus juice & zest. Stir through half of the cherries.

Pour mixture into pan, sprinkle over remaining cherries

Bake for 55 mins until cooked through. Cover with foil for the last 20 minutes to prevent burning.

Meanwhile, for the syrup. Place all the ingredients in a saucepan over low heat, then cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes until sweetener has dissolved. Increase heat to medium and cook for a further 1-2 minutes until syrupy. Pierce the cooked cake all over with a skewer/toothpick, then drizzle over warm syrup. Sprinkle with pistachios and dust with powdered sweetener. Cool slightly, then remove cake from the pan and cool completely before serving.

Serve with double cream! Delicious and healthy.. YUM

    Hmm, is this really low carb, or merely lower carb, as printed on the outside of the muffin mix box? My mum is diabetic and would love this, but is it low enough?

      Thanks Julie, we labelled it ‘lower’ carb as per the Australian labelling guidelines however you mum can also alter the add-ins (butter, milk & eggs) to make it lower in carbs. I hope she can enjoy them, perfect for diabetics.
