This quick little microwave coffeecake made with my new Einkorn Bake Mix was delicious. We were amazed at how filling 1 slice (1/8 cake) was! Even my coffeecake hound husband only had half a second slice. This had a very nice, soft, slightly spongy texture. It was moist and flavorful; sweet enough, without being too cloyingly sweet.
This recipe is not suitable until the grains rung of the Atkins carb reintroduction ladder. It is suitable for Keto diets if you can fit the carbs in your daily limits. This would not be acceptable for Primal-Paleo on multiple levels.
2 c. my Einkorn Bake Mix (you’re on your own with substitutions in this mix)
4 large eggs, beaten
¼ c. Davinci vanilla sugar-free syrup (or sweetener to =1/4 c. sugar + 1/4 c. water + splash vanilla)
2 T. erythritol (or 2 pkts stevia)
¼ c. pecans or other nuts
2 T. erythritol (or 2 pkts. stevia or Splenda)
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 T. cold butter
DIRECTIONS: I find this mix doesn’t bake as well (less rise) in conventional ovens as it cooks in a microwave, though not sure why. But if you insist, or don’t have a MW, bake in oven at 350º for about 20-30 minutes. I forewarn it does not rise as well cooked in a conventional oven. I hope to figure out exactly why that happens. I used a 7x7x2″ vegetable dish, but you could use an 8×8″ square baking dish, or any shaped dish that will hold about 4 c. batter. Oil the dish.
Pulse or blend topping ingredients in processor or blender or with fork in a small bowl and set aside. In another bowl, beat the eggs, Davinci syrup, erythritol until well-blended. Add in the bake mix and stir until well blended. Pour 1/3-1/2 the batter in the baking dish. Crumble half the topping on the batter evenly. Pour remaining batter evenly on top and crumble remaining topping on top. Microwave on HI for 4½ minutes. Check, if no longer wet in center, it’s done. May take 30 seconds longer in some microwaves. Run knife around edges and tip upside down on serving plate or cutting board. Cut into 8 portions and enjoy warm.
