What Makes this a "Keto" Cake"?
Conventional cakes use flour and sugar, which are high in carbohydrates and will give your body a sugar high (and crash!) We like to call this the "glu-coaster"!
This Breakfast Cake is keto because it uses upgraded ingredients!
- Coconut flour! This flour is a great gluten-free alternative to white flour that is lower in carbs and contains fiber.
- Keto sweetener! This recipe uses granular erythritol - we used Swerve brand that gives you a sweet flavor without all the sugar/carbs.
- Butter and heavy cream! Using high-quality dairy will give this cake lots of healthy fats, which will keep you satisfied and in ketosis.
What Ingredients You Need
This keto breakfast cake only needs seven ingredients:
- Eggs: Opt for organic, pastured eggs for the best taste and nutrient profile.
- Butter: We recommend unsalted butter. If possible, grass-fed butter is best.
- Heavy Cream: Opt for organic heavy cream for the best quality. You can also sub full-fat coconut cream.
- Cream Cheese: This will make the cake very creamy yet light! Opt for organic.
- Almond Extract: We recommend an organic version for the best taste! If you don't have this on-hand you can omit it from the recipe.
- Keto Sweetener: We used Swerve sweetener for this recipe, but any keto granulated sweetener will do!
