Chocolate Cake On Keto (LCHF) Diet?

Chocolate cake isn’t something that is usually low carb, or even keto-friendly for that matter.

I mean, a cake is basically all sugar…and maybe some fat too.

With that being said, in order to make a keto chocolate cake, you’ll need to use some alternative ingredients. And all that means is that you’ll be using low-carb ingredients to replace the higher-carb ones.

So, that means you’ll be swapping out “regular” flour for blanched almond flour, and sugar for “sugar-free” sweetener (it’s basically a sugar replacement that has 0 NET CARBS, and 0 CALORIES – which makes it an ideal sugar substitute for people following a low carb diet like keto).

Also, if you need to pick up Blanched Almond Flour I recommend using this one by Kirkland’s. I not only used it in today’s Keto Chocolate Cake recipe, but I use it in all of my other recipes that call for almond flour.

I personally like Kirkland’s Blanched Almond Flour for 2 reasons.

Number one, it’s cheaper than most – if not ALL – other brands. And number two, it only has 2g NET CARBS, which is the lowest I’ve seen for almond flour.

If you are asking Can I swap coconut flour for almond flour or almond flour for coconut flour?“ – the answer is NO.

Coconut flour and almond flour have different absorption rates. What that means is coconut flour is highly absorbent and soaks up liquid at a much higher rate than almond flour.

If you substitute coconut flour for the almond four in today’s cake recipe, expect the cake to be EXTREMELY dry.

DO NOT expect good results.

So, as I said, this Keto Chocolate Cake is unbelievably easy to make.

All you have to do is add all of the ingredients to a large bowl, mix everything up, and then bake it for 14-15 minutes. And if you can believe this, making the Keto Chocolate Buttercream Frosting top the cake with is even easier!
