Paleo-Friendly Vanilla Cake

Prep Time: 25 min • Cook Time: 1 hour • Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 packets Dr. Kellyann's Collagen Creamer


Preheat the oven to 325°F (163°C). Coat a 6-inch round cake pan with palm shortening or ghee and line it with parchment paper.

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the ghee and set aside to cool slightly. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, Collagen Creamer, arrowroot flour, and salt until blended.

Separate the eggs and place the whites in a medium bowl and place the yolks in another bowl along with the melted ghee, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Whisk to combine.

Add the egg yolk mixture to the large bowl with the flour mixture and whisk till the batter is smooth.

Using a hand mixer or the whisk attachment of your stand mixer, beat the egg whites until they look like softly whipped cream and hold soft peaks when you pull out the beaters, about 2 minutes. Set the egg whites aside for a moment.

Stir the baking soda into the batter and then, using a rubber spatula, immediately beat 1/3 of the whipped egg whites into the batter, mixing just until barely combined and some streaks remain. Gently fold in the rest of the egg whites into the batter, mixing until only a few streaks are left. Carefully pour the batter into the prepared cake pan.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan on a wire rack for about 5 minutes. Run a sharp knife around the edge of the cake and turn it onto the rack. Let cool completely.
