  • In the meantime, prepare the cream by mixing mascarpone, vanilla, lemon juice and mineral water. Keep mixing until the cream becomes fluffy and not too firm. 
  • When the cake is baked, let it cool down a bit, remove it from your cake mould and cut it in half. 
  • Use one part of the cream to fill the cake and cover the top of the cake with the rest of the cream. Leave the sides uncovered. You can decorate the cake with raw cacao, or cut a thin layer out of your cake, crumble it and use as cake decoration. 
  • Serve well chilled!


Have in mind that not every Stevia sweetener has the same sweetening power. I would recommend consulting your product label or your previous experience with the kind of sweetener you have. Alternatively, you can always lick a bit of the batter before baking it. Regarding the cream filling, you can add or exclude the sweetener to your liking. This will depend on the kind of mascarpone and lemons you'll use. 
Try to use all natural organic ingredients.
