LCHF One Minute Sponge

A quick search of the internet will reveal that there are many variations of the quick easy  LCHF one minute Muffin – but I was wanting a softer spongier texture for a trifle.  As with most baking, the ingredient for many things (cake, pancake, pikelet, muffin) are the same with a vatiation in ratios and methods….and thus the recipe for a LCHF One Minute Sponge happened.

I am avoiding using any sugar substitutes in my LCHF way of Eating but many of the ingredients in this sponge are naturally sweet giving a nice gentle sweetness.

LCHF Sponge

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 egg – Separated
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Cream
  • ¼ teaspoon Vanilla Essence
  • 3 Tablespoons Almond Flour or meal
  • 2 teaspoons Coconut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking Powder
  1. Mix together almond, coconut and baking powder in a bowl.
  2. Melt butter  in microwave proof ramekin ( 2 – 3 Cup) for  20-30 seconds
  3. Beat Egg yolk, Vanilla and Cream until creamy
  4. Add dry ingredients and fold in carefully
  5. Fold in melted butter
  6. Whip egg white until stiff
  7. Fold in ½ the egg white to the batter
  8. Gently fold in remaining egg white.
  9. Return to buttery ramekin
  10. Microwave for 1 minute.- (add 10 – 20 seconds depending on your microwave)
  11. Let cool for a couple of seconds before taking out of the Ramekin

NOTE – Folding in the ingredients allows plenty of air in the mixture for lightness.  Be careful and thorough – but dont beat it.


  • For a larger sponge, I multiply this by four and bake in an 20cm cake pan- line  with baking paper  Bake at 150-180ºC for 20-25 mins
  • For a sweeter “Coconut Cake” use Coconut Oil and Coconut Cream.
  • Top with Cream and berries
  • I use this for my LCHF Trifle
