Lemon Berry Cake

This cake made my low carb dreams come true! The almond flour and stevia used in this make it a healthier dessert choice by avoiding added sugar and refined grains, which are often referred to as empty calories. I used almond flour, making it gluten free, and stevia for the sweetener. This cake would be a beautiful addition to any special occasion.
