- 7 egg whites, room temperature
- 2 cups of pork rind flour***
- 2-1/4 cups Splenda or 6 tablespoons Sweetbalance (use more or less to adjust to personal taste
- 1/2 cup cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon extract
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup soured, scalded, heavy whipping cream (33-35% milk fat)
- 3/4 cup boiling water
- 4 egg yolks
*** One 80 gram bag of pork rinds yields exactly one cup of pork rind flour.
Using a blender or food processor, grind pork rinds into a fine flour or brown sugar-like substance by placing one pork rind at a time in blender or food processor and grinding it.
To sour cream, add 2 tablespoons vinegar to the heavy whipping cream. To scald cream, bring to a slow boil and remove from heat immediately.
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease one 16 x 16 rectangular cake pan, or two round 8 inch cake pans, or two 8 x 8 square cake pans. Set aside. In a large bowl, add pork rind flour, sweetener, cinnamon, nutmeg cinnamon extract, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix until thoroughly blended. Add scaled, soured cream and boiling water. Beat on low speed with an electric mixer, or with a hand whisk, until well blended.
Add egg yolks and beat until smooth.
Beat egg whites with an electric mixer on low speed, or with a hand whisk, until egg whites are thick and frothy. Increase electric mixer to high speed and continue beating egg whites until stiff, white peaks form. Be careful not to overbeat the egg whites, as they will lose cinnamon batter.
Fold in the remaining egg whites, working quickly yet gently to preserve the volume of the egg whites.
Bake for 30-36 minutes
