It was my hubby’s birthday on Friday and I was really struggling to decide what to make…

It had to be low carb of course – and delicious – and something that he’d really enjoy.
It also had to be ready for Friday morning as the sun came up.

You see, we have a tradition in our home, that goes a little something like this:
Early morning singing, cake, coffee & gifts in bed – all before the crack of dawn!

When I was growing up, I hated getting up so early – even though it was for a special occasion, unless it was MY birthday, hehe…
But now, having kids, I LOVE the fact that I can have coffee and cake so early, I mean, I’m up anyways… {Or at least, the kids are!}

Can’t I just have some low carb cake every morning…?

So, hubby’s all-time favourite sweet treat is anything with chocolate and peanut butter – thanks a lot America! 😉

We don’t really eat peanuts, because strictly speaking it’s neither low carb OR Banting, or even Paleo…
{Peanuts are legumes and not nuts.}

But anyways, I think once a year or on a special occasion it’s fine – and I used peanut butter without any added sugar.

I’ve made this roulade before, with mascarpone cheese filling – so you decide which you prefer – both are delicious.
Personally, I prefer the one with the cream filling {mascarpone}, as it gives a much lighter texture and goes extremely well with the feathery, silky texture of the cake…

Keep it in the fridge.

Cut into slices, serve and enjoy!

The peanut butter cheesecake roulade is delicious just as is, and the plain roulade is to die for with some fresh strawberries!

It might seem a bit tricky to make, but trust me, once you’ve done it, you’ll realise it’s actually quite easy!

I was inspired by Mary Berry on the Great British Bake-Off and so, I adapted her recipe for this yummy low carb version.

Which one of these low carb chocolate roulade options will you try?!
