The Ingredients Used In This Keto Chocolate Cake Recipe:

Here’s an overview of the ingredients you’ll need to make this tasty keto chocolate cake (the exact measurements are included in the recipe card below):

Eggs: I use large eggs in most of my recipes.

Unsalted butter: You can also use salted butter but personally, I use creamy European butter. But any butter is delicious!

Sweetener: You can use your favorite sweetener. For the cake, I use this sweetener, and for the frosting, I use this powdered sugar substitute.

Vanilla extract: Pure vanilla extract adds great flavor. Try to use it rather than the artificially flavored stuff.

Almond flour: I use blanched finely ground almond flour in this cake.

Cocoa powder: Use unsweetened natural cocoa powder. It will help activate the baking soda.

Baking powder: If you’d like to try using baking soda (though I haven’t tested it in this recipe), remember that 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda is equivalent to 1 teaspoon of baking powder.

For the Chocolate Frosting: Unsalted butter, heavy cream, cream cheese, sweetener, cocoa powder, and vanilla.

For cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter and flour two 9″ cake pans. Alternately you can line it with parchment paper, leaving a couple of inches of overhang on the sides for easy removal.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, erythritol, cocoa powder, and baking powder until fully combined. Add in the butter and vanilla. Using an electric hand mixer, mix until all ingredients are well combined. Crack open the eggs into the bowl and stir until completely combined, then stir in the almond milk. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pans and spread in an even layer.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until it springs back when you touch and a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool completely before removing from the pan or it may (will) fall apart.

For frosting:

  1. Beat room temperature cream cheese and butter until well combined and creamy.
  2. Add chocolate powder. Using your mixer or blender cream together evenly.
  3. Add the sweetener and mix it until smooth.
  4. Add in heavy whipping cream and mix well.
  5. Add in the vanilla extract and mix until the appearance becomes fluffy, this should take around 3 minutes.


Tip: You can add 1.5 teaspoons of Keto Instant coffee or Bulletproof Coffee for a coffee chocolate frosting.

This is one of my favorite keto desserts.. and I only have 2! I didn't even need frosting. It reminds me of the flourless chocolate cake from Trader Joe's that I used to love. Thank you for this recipe! Yum.

I used half of the Swerve sweetener that the recipe calls for in both the batter and in the frosting; came out delicious!

This turned out so good! I did only put one cup (instead of two cups) of sweetener for the frosting and it was perfect! I was storing the cake in the fridge and found that I didn't like it cold so I popped it in the microwave for a few seconds. Let. Me. Tell. You. It tastes just like a molten lava cake!! I think I like it better warmed up!

Making this right now. Every step was super easy. The only thing I can note right now is that next time I make this (bc I definitely will) I will be cutting the sweetener in the icing down. I should have started with a cup and then slowly added a quarter cup after that and tasted it along the way. I only added 1 3/4 cup out of the 2 cup instruction and I tasted it and it was way too sweet for me and I love sweets. Could be my swerve confectioner sweetener too but atleast I know for next time. Can’t wait to try this beauty of a cake! Thanks for posting this easy recipe!!!
