Ingredients:

Cake

  • 252 g blanched almond flour
  • 96 g coconut flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 250 g butter use dairy free, if desired
  • 300 g granulated sweetener of choice * See notes
  • 6 large eggs ** See notes
  • 180 ml cup almond milk can use any milk
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3-4 tbsp natural beetroot powder (or red food coloring of choice)

Frosting

  • 28 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered erythritol or sweetener of choice
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line two 8-inch pans and two 6-inch pans with parchment/baking paper and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add your almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt and mix well. Set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream your butter and sugar until fluffy, around 8 minutes. Add the eggs in, one at a time, and beat well until fully incorporated. Add the milk and vanilla extract until combined. Add the dry ingredients and beat until creamy.
  4. Add the cocoa powder and beetroot powder (or red food coloring) and stir until combined and the desired color is achieved.
  5. Divide the batter evenly amongst the two cake pans, and smoothen out the tops. Bake for around 22-25 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool completely.
  6. To make the cream cheese frosting, add all ingredients to a large bowl and use a handmixer to incorporate them until smooth and fluffy.
  7. Once cool, frost the layers with the cream cheese frosting and assemble the cake, then frost the sides of the cake as well. 
  8. On another turntable, repeat the process to assemble the smaller 6-inch cake. Gently lift the cake using a spatula and place it on top of the larger cake. 
  9. Decorate as desired.
