Low Carb Cinnamon Bundt cake, recipes courtesy of www.lowcarbsosimple.com/
(3) Low Carb Cinnamon Bundt Cake
Ingredients
2-½ cups Almond Flour
2 Tablespoons Ground Organic Cinnamon
2 teaspoons Organic Baking Powder
5 whole Extra Large Organic Eggs
⅔ cups Erythritol Crystals
Non-stick Spray Or Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, For Greasing Your Pan

Preparation Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).
2. Grease a bundt cake pan (I used melted organic extra virgin coconut oil).
3. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, cinnamon and baking powder and mix well.
4. In another large bowl, combine the eggs and the erythritol and beat with an electric mixer until almost white and really fluffy. This usually takes several minutes depending on how powerful of a mixer you have.
5. Fold the almond flour mixture gently into the egg mixture, preferably with a rubber spatula, until the batter is smooth and the dry ingredients have been well mixed to the wet ingredients.
6. Pour the batter into the greased bundt pan.
7. Bake for roughly 40 minutes, or until a stick inserted into the center of the thickest part of the cake comes out clean.
8. Remove it from oven and let cake cool in the pan then remove it from the pan and cut into slices.
9. Serve as such, or top with a dollop of whipped cream or cream cheese icing (count extra carbs if needed). Sprinkle some extra cinnamon on top.

Carb Grams Per Serving: 30

Ingredients
2 cups small cauliflower florets (about 1/2 inch in diameter)
2 tablespoons water
4 ounces extra-lean lower-sodium ham, chopped (3/4 cup)
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 cup chopped red sweet pepper (2 small)
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 ounces red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

2 tablespoons light butter or diet margarine
1 tablespoon snipped fresh sage
2 ounces reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)

Directions
In a small microwave-safe bowl combine cauliflower and the water. Cover with vented plastic wrap. Microwave on 100 percent power (high) 3 to 5 minutes or until cauliflower is very tender. Cool slightly; drain. Place cooked cauliflower in a food processor or blender. Cover and process or blend until pureed. Set aside. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan cook ham in 1 teaspoon of the hot oil over medium-high heat 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Using a slotted spoon, remove ham; set aside.
In the same large saucepan cook sweet pepper and garlic in the remaining 1 teaspoon hot oil 3 minutes. Stir in potatoes, broth, and crushed red pepper. Bring to boiling over high heat; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 10 minutes or just until potatoes are tender.
In a small bowl combine evaporated milk and cornstarch, stirring until smooth. Add to saucepan; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in 1/4 cup of the green onions, the margarine, sage, ham, and pureed cauliflower. Cook over medium-low heat 5 minutes to heat through and allow flavors to blend. Serve topped with cheese and the remaining 1/4 cup green onions.

Tip
Cook's Tip: This makes a lighter version of potato soup which is the perfect transition when the weather is changing from Summer to Fall.
