    What You’ll Need:

    A 10-Inch Cake Pan with a Removable Bottom

    Measuring Cups & Spoons

    A Food Processor

    A Small Bowl

    Parchment

    A Spatula

    A Cooling Rack

    A Cake Plate

    A Knife

     

    Ingredients:

    2 Cups Almond Flour

    1/2 Cup Lemon Juice

    1/2 Cup Agave

    1/2 Cup Apple Sauce

    1/2 Cup Eggwhite Powder

    3 Eggs

    2 Tsps Lemon Zest

    2 Tsp Lemon Extract

    2 Tsps Baking Soda

    1/4 Tsp Sea Salt

    2 Cups Frozen Organic Blueberries
     

    How To Put It Together:

    1) Preheat  the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line the cake pan with parchment paper. Pour the frozen blueberries into the cake pan and set it aside.
     
    2) Crack the eggs into a small bowl to check for freshness. To the food processor add: the almond flour, the lemon juice, the agave, the apple  sauce, the eggs, the lemon zest, the lemon extract, the baking soda and the sea salt. Process the ingredients until smooth, scraping down the sides of the processor as needed.
     
    3) Pour the batter into the cake pan and place the pan in the center of the preheated oven. Bake for 45 – 50 minute or until the tester comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan on the cooling rack. When the pan is completely cool, run a knife around the sides of the cake pan to loosen the cake, unlock the the pan’s clasp and remove outside of the pan. Place a cake plate on top of the cake and invert the cake. Remove the bottom of the pan and the parchment to expose the blueberries.
     
    4) Serve and enjoy!
