10 Keto Cakes for a Low-Carb Valentine’s Day and Beyond
While there are many dieting fads that should expire like right now, the Keto diet is one that has stood the test of time. The Keto diet is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet that induces ketosis within the body. The beautiful thing about this is it means that even when you’re eating tasty desserts like cake you’re doing good things for your body. With Valentine’s Day coming up, how much more of an excuse do you need to enjoy a slice with your S.O.? After all, Valentine’s is really the only holiday in the near future that requires you to indulge in sweet things. With these recipes you can take full advantage, Keto-style.
Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake: Cheesecake isn't cake in the traditional sense of the word, but it is nevertheless beloved. This chocolate version is sinfully rich and should only be consumed by serious chocoholics. (via Low Carb Maven)
Lemon Poke Cake: Why is this called a poke cake? Because of all the holes you need to poke into the cake before pouring on the lemon glaze to make a thoroughly moist, lemony dessert from the inside out. Bonus: It only takes three minutes to make this mini cake. (via Beauty and the Foodie)
Low Carb Lemon Pound Cake: Pound cake, in general, contains a pound of flour. Yeah, that’s a lot of carbs. Thankfully, it's easy to make this hearty cake Keto-friendly. All you need is almond flour and lemon. One bite and the flavor combo will take your taste buds to nirvana. (via Seasonly Creations)
Cranberry White Chocolate Layer Cake: Fruit and white chocolate go happily hand in hand in this dessert where tender, grain-free white cake is covered in a blanket of creamy white chocolate frosting and filled with a sweetly tart cranberry filling. (via All Day I Dream About Food)
Orange Brandy Cheesecake: Welcome to dessert heaven. This showstopping cake is gluten-free, sugar-free, and low-carb but still tastes as good as the comforting desserts your grandma used to bake. It’s so fragrant that once you start making it, it'll be hard to resist licking the bowl clean of leftover batter. (via Sugar Free Londoner)
Cranberry Bliss Pound Cake: This eye-catching cake is dotted with succulent cranberries that infuse the already moist cake with extra richness. If you frost it, it'll be practically begging you to go in for that second (or third) slice. (via All Day I Dream About Food)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeye Cake: What do you call a fluffy, low-carb chocolate bundt cake filled with creamy peanut butter cheesecake? Irresistible. Go ahead, make it and dare yourself not to devour every last bite. (via All Day I Dream About Food)
Earthquake Cake: Layers upon layers of flavor sit on top of each other to cover the molten core of this cake. If you think about it, each bite is like a geology lesson, so dig in! (via All Day I Dream About Food)
Red Velvet Crepe Cake: Red velvet cake is a must on Valentine’s Day. It’s festive and secretly full of chocolate. What more could you ask for? Oh, well maybe a Keto version that tastes just like the original. (via I Breathe I’m Hungry)
Slow Cooker Mocha Pudding Cake: While oftentimes flourless can mean lifeless, when it comes to chocolate cake, flourless is actually a good thing. This cake is a cross between a rich chocolate soufflé and a gooey pudding. A waterfall of chocolate takes the place of a glutinous substance, making each bite of this cake absolute decadence.
