4 tbsp butter
1 cup fresh pineapple ( you can use other fruits)
1/4 cup Joy Filled Eats Sweetener (or see alternatives in recipe notes)
1 tsp pineapple extract
Cake Batter:
2 eggs
1/3 cup yogurt
4 tbsp butter
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup Joy Filled Eats Sweetener (or see alternatives in recipe notes)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pineapple extract


Preheat oven to 350.
Spread the softened butter in the bottom of an 8 x 8 baking dish. Put a layer of pineapple on top of the butter. Mix together the ¼ cup sweetener and the pineapple extract in a small bowl. Sprinkle that on top of the pineapple.
Add the cake ingredient to a food processor. Process until smooth. Drop by spoonfuls on top of the pineapple. Gently spread to cover all the pineapple.

Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown and slightly firm to the touch. Cool for 20 minutes and then invert onto a serving platter. Store leftovers in the fridge.


Nutrition: This cake has 12 pieces. Each piece has 5 total carbs and 3 NET carbs. These numbers include the small amount of fresh pineapple. I believe that this can be keto-friendly with these numbers. It is up to you if you want to use the real pineapple.
Notes on Sweeteners:
I use my own blend of xylitol, erythritol, and stevia in my recipes. This is twice as sweet as sugar. It is comparable to Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet and Truvia.
To sub in Swerve or Lakanto Monk Fruit use 1.5 times the amount of sweetener called for.

To sub in Pyure or Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet use half the amount of sweetener called for.

Substitutions will work in most recipes. They may not work in candies, such as caramel.
