How to make a Keto King Cake
  1. In a small bowl, add the yeast, inulin, and warm water. Set aside in a warm place to proof for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the almond flour, coconut flour, flax meal, erythritol, baking powder, and xanthan gum. Mix well.
  3. Add the proofed yeast mixture, butter, and eggs. Mix to a dough consistency.
  4. In a small bowl, add the pecans, sweetener, cinnamon, and butter. Mix together.
  5. Place the dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper and roll into a rectangle about 6mm/0.25in thick.
  6. Spread the cinnamon mixture over the dough, leaving at least a 2cm/1in border along the long edges of the rectangle.
  7. Roll the dough up into a scroll, and gently bend into an oval, pressing the two ends together. If your dough cracks, gently press it back together.
