  • 6 Whole Eggs
  • 315 ml Whipping Cream
  • 100 ml Unsalted Melted Butter
  • 10 ml Vanilla Extract


  • 113 g Unsalted Butter (softened)
  • 45-65 g Powdered sweetener
  • 25 g Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 3-4 tbsp Hot water
  • 125 g Roasted chopped pecans


  • Preheat the oven at 350F or 180C.
  • In a bowl, sieve the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda together. Then add the sweetener and salt. Mix until well combined.
  • Add all the wet ingredients and whisk until well combined. The batter is smooth and moderately thick.
  • In the video, I used a 9×13 inch pan lined with parchment paper. You can also use any suitable pan. Transfer the batter into the pan and spread evenly.
  • Bake at the middle rack for about 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
  • Meanwhile, make the frosting.
  • Add all the ingredients into a bowl (except the pecans). Add 2 to 3 tbsp of hot water first. Then whisk to combine. If the cream is too thick, add another tbsp of hot water until you get the right consistency. I added a total of 4 tbsp to get the consistency I wanted. It could be different for you. They key is to add more or less hot water to adjust the thickness of the cream.
  • Add the roasted chopped pecans and mix with a spatula to combine.
  • You can frost the cake while still warm or at room temperature.
  • Pour the cream onto the top of the cake and spread evenly. As my cake was still warm, I chilled it in the fridge for about 30 minutes until the frosting is set enough. The longer you chill the cake, the firmer the frosting will become.
  • The cake can be kept in the fridge for up to a week.
