Keto cake that tastes like real cake–without all the sugar and carbs? Yes please! I hate to say this but most keto cake recipes taste like sawdust. Not mine. I refuse to eat sawdust and you should too. Try my selection of low carb cake and keto cakes and desserts, including this Keto Almond Coconut Blueberry Cake or cakelet as I like to call it. Keto Almond Coconut Blueberry cakelets are gluten-free and low carb, but full of real cake flavor. Whip up a batch in just a few minutes.
How to Make A Great Keto Cake Recipe
It’s taken me a long time to come up with a keto cake recipe that works. But as soon as I cracked the code on the base keto cake recipe, I’ve gone to town on variations. Everything from Instant Pot Coconut Almond Cake, to a baked Almond Coconut cake, to Flourless chocolate cake, to Carrot cake to Brownies and Lemon Poppyseed Muffins have been coming out of my kitchen these days.
I suck at cutesy food pics and proper food art. So I decided to try some little silicone cake molds to help me make these Keto Almond Coconut Blueberry cakelets. I thought they’d be cute, and cook faster.
Well, they are cute, but they didn’t cook faster. I suspect this is because I increased the whipping cream in this recipe, but it was totally worth the additional time.
The cakelets are moist, light, and delicious. And did I mention keto? Keto desserts and keto cake will save your diet when you’re jonesing for something sweet but want to stay on your plan.
The blueberries added a wonderful flavor, color, and look to these cakes. I used frozen thawed blueberries because that’s what I had, but fresh blueberries would work as well, as long as you get small ones since the cups barely hold about a tablespoon of batter at a time.
Makes 24 mini cakes, 4 to a serving
- Heat oven to 350F
Place all ingredients except blueberries into the bowl of a stand mixer or into a blender and whip until light and frothy.
Stir in the blueberries.
- Pour into silicone molds or other mini cupcake molds
- Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cakelet emerges clean.
- For best results, wait until they’ve cooled before attempting to unmold. Although if you don’t, you have an excuse to scarf the broken ones before serving the rest.
