Keto Vanilla Cake

This Keto vanilla cake is perfect for birthdays, weddings, parties, and many other occasions! I make this recipe whenever I need to make a cake faster, and I’m not sure what people will like.

You will love this recipe because it is suitable for everyone. It’s delicate and fancy at the same time, and what I like most about it is that delicious vanilla cream cheese frosting that completes everything perfectly.

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to desserts, once I hear the word “vanilla,” I can’t focus on anything else. I love all desserts that contain vanilla, especially with a cup of coffee or tea in the morning.

Why Are You Going To Love This Recipe

  • Made with naturally low-carb ingredients.
  • Perfect for any occasion.
  • It’s a fluffy and tender cake full of vanilla flavor.
  • Has a buttery and moist texture.
  • Contain only 7g net carbs per serving.

Ingredients For This Keto Vanilla Cake

I love this cake because it’s made using a few simple ingredients that you probably have already in your pantry.

Ingredients Keto Vanilla Cake

For The Cake

  • Almond&Coconut Flour – To avoid any clumps in the batter, sift your flour. The cake’s texture will be lighter as a result.
  • Butter – Use unsalted butter for this recipe. If you want a dairy-free cake, use melted coconut oil or avocado oil.
  • Sweetener – I like to choose between erythritol, monk fruit sweetener, and allulose, but you can use your preferred sweetener.
  • Eggs – Use eggs that are at room temperature to reduce the eggy flavor. They are a wonderful source of protein and help everything bind together.
  • Baking Powder – creates extremely fluffy keto leaf cakes.
  • Vanilla Extract – I recommend using the best high-quality vanilla extract you can find.

For The Frosting

  • Cream Cheese – use softened full-fat cream cheese. The result won’t be as creamy if you try to use it fat-free.
  • Butter – you will need softened butter to mix well.
  • Sweetener – I advise using a powdered sweetener for the frosting because it dissolves more easily.
  • Vanilla Extract – since it’s vanilla cake, use the best quality you can find for a great flavor.

How To Make This Delicious Keto Vanilla Cake

This Keto Vanilla Cake is one of my favorite family because it’s extremely delicious and doesn’t require so many cooking skills. Here is everything you have to do:

Start by making the cake

  1. Add the butter to a bowl, then incorporate eggs one at a time using a mixer.
  2. Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix until it forms the batter.
  3. Pour the cake batter into the pans, then bake them in the oven for about 25 minutes.
  4. Once they are ready, remove them from the oven and let them cool.

Make the keto frosting

  1. Add all the ingredients into a bowl, then mix them until you get a creamy frosting.

Frost the cake

  1. Frost cake with vanilla cream cheese frosting or with your favorite frosting.

Tips For Making The Best Keto Vanilla Cake

  • Avoid overmixing since the coconut flour absorbs the moisture in the eggs as it bakes and becomes harder.
  • For the fluffiest texture, sift the flours.
  • Before frosting, the cakes must be completely chilled.
  • Use a cooling rack to let the cakes cool completely.

Storing Ideas

  • Fridge: Sugar-free keto birthday cake leftovers can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days in an airtight container. Slice when ready to serve, then enjoy.
  • Freezer: You can also store the leftover cake slices for up to five months. Then, defrost in the refrigerator overnight.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you insert a toothpick into the cakes and it comes out with a few dry crumbs, the cakes are done baking and should be taken out of the oven.

Definitely, you can make this cake ahead of time, store it in the fridge and enjoy it anytime you want.
