As you prepare this dessert, you will need about two cups of almond flour, which can be purchased at any grocery store. Also, you will need about four ounces of sour cream or yogurt, one tablespoon each of heavy cream cheese, a quarter teaspoon of vanilla, and approximately three to four eggs. If using yogurt, you can use non-fat plain yogurt. Once you have prepared all of these items and placed them in your food processor, you simply run the processor until you reach the desired result, which will be a lumpy and grainy mixture.
After you have blended all of the ingredients together, you will spoon the batter into a large nonstick cake pan and allow it to bake. You should check the cake after about thirty minutes to ensure that it does not stick, because you do not want your new treat to become a home for bacteria. If it sticks, it is best to remove it from the oven and put it in the refrigerator until it has cooled down. You can find this delicious dessert recipe in our cookbook The Big Book of Paleo Desserts.
