Keto Red Velvet Cake
First of all, let me say that I am NOT a froster. Never have been. Never will be.
I try, but it is just not a skill I possess.
The good thing is that it doesn’t affect the taste of the cake! WOOHOO!!
The other day, I was asked to make a keto red velvet cake. Now that sounded interesting!
I wasn’t planning on baking today but I wanted to see what I could come up with.
I decided to use a bundt pan because I think they are pretty. And I happen to think red velvet cakes are fancy so it was a logical choice. I mean, just look at how beautiful the base cake turned out (let’s not look at my frosting job yet).
Beautiful, right? RIght! And then I have to go and ruin it with the frosting! ACK!
It’s all good – we all have our gifts! Mine is baking, not frosting!
Does anyone want to host a cake decorating class for me? I digress!
Alright, back to this amazing keto red velvet cake!

Hand Beaters – Nothing fancy needed here. Just a regular hand beater!
Mixing Bowls – This is my favorite set!
Red Velvet cake is kind of all over the place.
I mean, is it a chocolate cake? Not really. But it certainly isn’t vanilla. And the red is “fake”. So…..
Whatever it is – it is AMAZING! I used unsweetened cocoa powder and cream cheese as my special, subtle flavors and I think they blend really well with the cream cheese frosting!
Speaking of chocolate, if you are a chocolate fan and a cake fan (which of course you are), be sure to check out mouth-watering keto German chocolate cake!
So many people think they have to give up their favorite cakes when they participate in a keto or low carb lifestyle!
I’m here to tell you that is absolutely not true!
Don’t believe me? Let’s take Carrot Cake for example. This Low Carb Carrot Cake is the perfect example of how you can still enjoy the best of the best cakes! Worried about carrots? Don’t be! High carb vegetables can still be consumed in moderation!
Another cake that will make you forget you are keto is the Almond Maple Glaze Cake.
Go forth and enjoy your cake, my keto friends!
