0g –

*see note

1/2 teaspoon saccharin —

liquid

*see Note

1 stick butter — melted

1/2 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon baking powder

How to Prepare:

  1. Melt butter and beat in eggs, cream, vanilla and sweeteners. (***I’m guessing this totals about 1 cup sugar equivelant if you use another sweetener other than the splenda, stevia, saccharin combo – add the carbs to the totals, please Beat in sour cream and mix until smooth, then add dry ingredients and beat for 2 minutes Pour into a greased large loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour(very dense – give it time to cook even if the top gets really brown).Let cool before inverting on a plate. This is a very moist,cake like finished product.
  2. **Notes: I would try this and beat the egg whites separately with1/4 tsp cream of tartar, then fold them into the batter once it’s time to pour into the pan. It rose quite a bit, but fell in the center and the beaten whites may help lighten it up.
  3. Glaze if desired: Mix 2T softened cream cheese, 2T cream and 2T sour cream with 2pkt sweetener and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cake
  4. NOTES : Counts for stevia, splenda tablets and macadamia meal not included in totals
