This coconut flour chocolate cake is an easy, healthy, gluten-free keto chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache and only 4 grams of net carbs per slice. The perfect keto chocolate birthday cake is also dairy-free, and you can serve it to all your paleo friends!
There are many occasions all year round for making good cakes, birthday parties, anniversaries, engagement parties, etc. I’ve shared with you recently one of my favorite cake recipes, a layer keto vanilla birthday cake, and it’s already very popular.
So I decided to share another recipe I like very much. Say hello to my coconut flour cake.
This delicious coconut flour chocolate cake is not only an easy keto chocolate birthday cake, but it is also dairy-free.
This keto chocolate birthday cake is made with 100% dairy-free wholesome ingredients.
Yes, coconut flour is a delicious keto low-carb flour containing only 8 grams of net carbs per 1/4 cup. Also, note that a 1/4 cup of coconut flour contains 10 grams of fiber which is 5 times more than all-purpose wheat flour.
It means that coconut flour is highly liquid-absorbent, and you must be very precise when measuring it. If you add too much, the cake will be dryer.
Making coconut flour cake recipes is relatively simple. If you still need some help, check out my Keto Baking Guide. It gives many tips and tricks, including baking with coconut flour.

This chocolate cake is not only keto-friendly, but it is also grain-free and paleo. I love to serve mine with a dairy-free chocolate ganache. Also, I sometimes add dollops of peanut butter just under the ganache.
While peanut butter is not paleo, it’s keto-friendly, and honestly, I can’ resist the chocolate and peanut butter combo! Otherwise, a simple way to decorate your cake is to add some unsweetened coconut on top. It will balance really well the coconut flour flavor of your chocolate cake.
You might wonder what to do with 12 slices of cake. If you have a small family that does not eat cake every day, there’s a way! My solution is to freeze the cake, sliced in a large airtight box.
Make sure you keep the slices separate from each other to make it easier to separate them. I defrost the cake slice by slice the day before. It is the best option to enjoy the cake for a long time without overindulging.
Once frozen, you can keep this cake for a couple of months.
If you are a cake lover and crave cakes on your keto diet, I got you covered! I have a range of delicious cake recipes with less than 8g of net carbs per slice.
