    Default Recipe Advent Calendar 22nd of December - Lemon Cake

    250 g almond meal
    6 eggs
    2 Lemons
    3 tb Erithritol
    sweetener
    1 ts creme of tartar

    Mascarpone
    sweetener
    Lemon peel
    Pistachios

    In a small sauce pan cook the lemons in hot water for an hour. Let cool down and cut in pieces, take all pips out and whisk in a food processor to a smooth pulp. Separate the eggs and whisk the egg whites with the creme of tartar until very stiff. whip the egg yolks with the erithritol until fluffy. Add the lemon pulp and the almonds to the egg yolks and add sweetener to taste. Carefully combine the egg whites with the rest and spread into an 8" cake form. Bake at 160 Celsius for 40-50 minutes.
    Serve with the mascarpone cream.

    I made a syrup from the juice of one lemon, 2 TB water and erithritol cooked down until it began to thicken and put it onto the cake, but that probably would be too much Erithritol out of the christmas season.

    I've tried amazon, but they won't send a slow cooker here They're ok with books, DVDs and small stuff, but not everything unfortunately. Maybe one day I'll drive to and fro. Thanks for the cast iron pot tip.

    HAH !! You got me, I had to go look up pips : This sounds wonderful (I LOVE Lemon), but a question for the pulp. You say cut the lemon in pieces, take all "pips" (seeds) out, and whisk in a food processor. I don't want to assume... is that peel, juice, pulp and all?

    Thank You So Much for all the work you have put into your Advent calendar and sharing these.

    Hello Kntrylady,

    yes, pips are seeds they are called that around here And yes, you cook the whole lemons and put all of it except the seeds into the food processor - you can also make it with oranges instead, but that's lots more carbs. The peel will give most of the aroma to the cake.

    Default Recipe Advent Calendar 23nd of December - Devilled Eggs

    I wanted to do a recipe for gyros in Metaxa Sauce today, but as the spice mixture for it includes 16 different spices and herbs I thought that probably nearly everyone would be put off by it - it's delicious, but if I see a recipe where I first have to buy spices for a fortune I tend to never make it. So today it's finger food again - devilled eggs. I love them, because I normally always have HB eggs in the house and they are very quick to make. The recipe is really easy.

    hard boiled eggs, halved, egg yolk taken out
    mayonnaise
    spices, condiments

    Put the egg yolks into several little bowls and mash them up. In each bowl add the seasoning you want to have and then enough mayonnaise to make a smooth paste. Fill back the paste into the eggs and decorate with a few herbs.

    I used:

    tuna and onions
    curry and a little sweetener
    mustard and dill
    sun dried tomatoes
