Calories 1290kcal


  • 9 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1 cup erythritol
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter (room temperature)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 packets powdered gelatin
  • 3 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon cherry vodka (room temperature)
  • 2 ounces erythritol (room temperature)
  • 1 pound sour cherries (room temperature)
  • 3 tablespoons cherry vodka (room temperature)
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • If you are going to use the fan, 320°F (160°C) should be enough.
  • Line bottoms of two 8" or 9" springform pans with parchment paper.
  • Using a stand electric mixer, beat 9 eggs with the whisk attachment for 1 min on high spped.
  • With the mixer on, gradually add 1 cup erythritol and continue beating on high speed a full 8 min.
  • It will be thick and fluffy.
  • Tip: You will need a huge mixing bowl.
  • Whisk together almond flour and cocoa powder and sift in thirds into batter.
  • Fold with a spatula between each addition.
  • Once all flour is in, continue to fold just until no streaks of flour remain, scraping the bottom of the bowl to get any pockets of flour.
  • We do not want to over-mix and deflate the batter.
  • Gently fold in ½ Tsp vanilla and room temp butter, folding as you add butter in a steady stream and scraping from the bottom to make sure you don't have butter pooling at the bottom.
  • Fold just until incorporated.
  • Pour 1/3 and 2/3 of batter into the prepared pans (the 2/3 is going to be split in two when baked).
  • Bake immediatelyfor 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • If the batter is not baked straight away after mixing, it might deflate.
  • Let cool in pans for 10 min then run a thin spatula around edges to loosen cake.
  • Transfer to a wire rack and remove parchment paper.
  • When cakes are at room temp, take the thicker one and devide it in half lenghtwise using a cake slicer or a long sharp knife.
