Print Recipe


  • 6 eggs separated
  • cup Coconut flour
  • ½ cup Erythritol low carb sweetener
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon Ginger ground
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon Cloves ground
  • 1 teaspoon Nutmeg ground
  • ½ teaspoon All spice


  • ½ cup whipped cream
  • Cranberries to decorate – optional


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees
  • Grease and line a rectangle baking tin with parchment paper.
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • In another bowl, beat the egg yolks and erythritol together.
  • Add the coconut flour, baking powder, salt, vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice. Combine well.
  • Gently fold in the egg whites and combine thoroughly.
  • Pour into the baking tin and smooth evenly.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until firm and golden.
  • Remove from the oven and place on another piece of parchment paper.
  • Using the parchment paper on the top (will be the one used for baking), gently roll up the cake.
  • Watch your hands and don’t burn yourself! Best to let it cool slightly before rolling. This is to keep the sponge in the correct shape before adding the filling.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Whip the cream until stiff.
  • Gently unroll the cake, remove the top layer of parchment paper and spread the whipped cream evenly over the sponge.
  • Using the outer layer of parchment paper roll up the sponge again.
  • Eat any excess filling that squeezed out!
  • Decorate as you wish.
  • Slice, eat and enjoy!
