Mixed Berry Naked Cake

Don't let the name fool you. "Naked Cake" essentially means there's little to no icing on the sides of the cake. That does not mean there's any less silky, sweet icing flavor! There is plenty of icing in between the layers and on top to cure your icing craving. On top of the creamy icing is a luscious mix of fresh berries - simply put, this cake it delicious! 










Ingredients

Cake
¾ cup plain greek yogurt
4 eggs
¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1¼ cup almond flour
1½ scoop ARO vanilla whey protein powder
2 cups whole wheat flour
¾ cup xylitol
3 teaspoons baking powder

Icing
2/3 cup plain cream cheese, softened
½ cup plain greek yogurt
½ cup xylitol
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping
Strawberries
Blackberries
Blueberries

Method

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 3 mini cake pans (I used three 6” pans) and set aside.

2. Using a hand-held mixer, beat together the first four cake ingredients until smooth.

3. Add remainder of cake ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients. Blend on low speed until well combined.

4. Evenly distribute cake batter among the three pans. Smooth down with a spatula. Bake in the oven for 26-30 minutes. Let cakes cool on a wire rack while you make the icing.

5. In another mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the remainder of icing ingredients to the bowl and beat until light and fluffy. 

* Tip before next step: I use a serrated knife to trim the tops and sides of cake layers to ensure they are even and of the same size.

6. To assemble the cake, place one cake layer on your serving platter/dish. Spread about 1/3 of the frosting on top. Place the second cake layer on top of frosting. Spread another 1/3 of frosting on top of 2nd cake layer. Place the third cake layer on top of frosting. Spread the remainder of frosting on top.

7. Using a spatula, smooth down icing to your liking. Top with sliced berries. Enjoy!
