  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 eggs, separated
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 5 Tablespoons cocoa

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Whip egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff. In separate bowl, using electric mixer, cream butter with egg yolks until light yellow and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and Splenda. Beat until well mixed. Add about 1/3 of whipped egg whites to the butter/egg yolk mixture and mix lightly. Fold the whole thing in to the whipped egg whites and fold lightly. Add 1 cup of almond flour and fold lightly. Add remaining almond flour, baking powder and cocoa and fold thoroughly, being careful not to break down whites.
