How To Make Keto Blueberry Cake
This sugar-free lemon blueberry cake is a 1-bowl recipe. It means that the whole keto cake batter makes two cake layers, and you won’t have to repeat the recipe twice.
How cool is that? You know I love easy keto recipes, especially when it comes to keto desserts, as I can’t wait to fix my sweet tooth.
So all you need to make a lovely keto lemon cake are a few ingredients :
- Almond flour – I recommend super fine unblanched almond flour for best results and to avoid the gritty texture of almonds.
- Coconut flour – make sure it is fresh flour with no lumps. Also, always measure your coconut flour scooped and leveled to avoid adding too much of it – this would significantly dry out the lemon cake.
- Sugar-free crystal sweetener like erythritol or monk fruit stevia blend. Check my top 4 keto-friendly sweeteners to find out which ones I prefer!
- Lemon juice
- Eggs – this is very important to use large eggs at room temperature.
- Coconut oil – melted at room temperature or lukewarm but not hot, or it will ‘cook’ the eggs.
- Blueberries – fresh or frozen. Blueberry is relatively high in carbs, so it is important not to add too many. Check out my list of keto-friendly fruit to learn which fruits are the best on your keto journey.
- Lemon zest – from an organic lemon.
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
Making Keto Buttercream
The combo of butter and cream cheese makes the most delicious keto lemon frosting for this lemon cake. Cream cheese and lemon cake go really well together!
All you need for the frosting are:
- Softened cream cheese – bring it out of the fridge 1 hour before making the frosting.
- Softened butter – I recommend you bring the butter to room temperature for 3 hours before making the frosting. Also, precutting the butter into cubes will make it soften faster.
- Lemon juice
- Powdered sugar-free sweetener – same as above but powdered. If you can’t find powdered sugar-free sweeteners in your supermarket, crush the crystal sugar-free sweetener into a blender. Blend 45 seconds on high speed to make your own sugar-free icing sweetener!
- Unsweetened almond milk or heavy cream
Sugar-Free Blueberry Chia Coulis
This cake wouldn’t be the same without the tangy lemon blueberry coulis.
Of course, this is optional, but trust me, this brings this keto lemon cake to the next level.
Bonus, this coulis doesn’t require fancy ingredients and only 3 minutes to make, so you don’t have to sweat it!
- Blueberries – fresh or frozen.
- Chia seeds – this helps thicken the coulis.
- Sugar-free crystal sweeteners like erythritol or monk fruit stevia blend.
- Lemon juice
If you’ve made a little too much frosting or coulis, you can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
You can store this keto blueberry cake in the fridge in a cake box for up to 3 days.
You can also freeze cake slices, but I recommend freezing the unfrosted cake for better taste when defrosted.
Defrost the slices in the fridge for a few hours.
