Lebanese Sfouf / Turmeric Cake

I am always making snacks for my kids lunch/snack boxes, I decided I would make one for me first before I start on the kids this week. I decided to make a Lebanese Sfouf ie Turmeric Cake, with a slight twist. This Sfouf would be a Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Sugar Free and Low Carb …. Ticked all the boxes to make the perfect cake for my cup of coffee … now if you compare this to a chocolate cake that would sound so much better than eating a Turmeric cake, but trust me it turned out better than I thought! This cake won’t raise as much as a regular chocolate cake or a regular Sfouf but if you are looking for an alternative treat that isn’t loaded with sugar and calories, give this a try 😀 Here is how you can make your Keto Sfouf!


3 cups almond flour

¾ cup Stevia or other sugar alternative

6 egg whites

1 ½ tbsp. turmeric powder

1 ½ tsp baking powder

4 tbsp coconut oil

Preheat your oven to 180C. Grease a round cake pan and set aside.

Begin by whisking together the egg whites and the stevia for about a minute. Then add the rest of the ingredients one after the other: almond flour, turmeric powder, baking powder and coconut oil.

Make sure all ingredients are well combined. Pour into the cake pan and bake for 30mins. Use a toothpick to check if it’s cooked through, when inserted into the cake it should come out clean.

Let it cool for 5minutes and then flip the cake out onto a cooling rack. Slice and enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea.
