  • 12 large egg whites
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1.5  and another 1 cups Erythritol (separated)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract


  1. Put the egg whites in a bowl and set aside for the moment

  2. Sift flour and 1 cup Erythritol together twice and set aside.

  3. Add the salt, cream of tartar, almond and vanilla extracts to the egg whites; beat on until soft peaks form (not too fast).

  4. Gradually add remaining Erythritol, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until you receive stiff glossy form and sugar is dissolved.

  5. Gradually add  flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time.

  6. Spoon half of the batter into an ungreased round tube pan (recommended pan size-25cm, if you do not have a tube pan, you may use a round object to create a circle form).

  7. Stir the orange zest and orange extract into the remaining batter.

  8. If desired add food colorings.

  9. Gently spoon orange batter over white batter.

  10. Cut through both layers with a knife to remove air pockets.

  11. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 190°C for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned and the entire top appears dry.

  12. Take out the cake and immediately invert the pan.

  13. Cool completely (should take about an hour).

  14. Run a knife around the side and center of the pan to detach the cake from the pan.

  15. Remove cake to a serving plate.

  16. Add any kind of topping you would like to (we like melting sugar-free chocolate chips and mixing with heavy cream- see above photo)
