Listen: if you expect a cake to look, smell and taste like “real cake” without the flour and sugar and carbs, you’ve got to turn some slightly more exotic ingredients. You know? We’re multi-talented, but we do not hold dominion over the laws of baking physics.
Truth be told, you’ll find a handful of very commonly used LC staples like Almond Flour, Coconut Flour and Xanthan Gum in many recipes and once you start LC baking, you’ll probably keep them in your freezer. Go slow and add to your ingredient collection a little at a time. Or skip the baked goods. I don’t care. Just don’t fuss at me about it!
