Mix Wet Ingredients
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, almond milk, heavy cream, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
Combine Dry Ingredients
In another large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, espresso powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, erythritol, baking powder, and salt.
Whisk Dry Ingredients
Whisk until all the Keto German Chocolate Cake Dry ingredients are evenly combined and no lumps show.
Make a Well and Pour
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the liquid ingredients.
Stir Cake Batter
Stir the Keto German Chocolate Cake batter with a spatula to combine until it becomes smooth.
Evenly divide the Keto German Chocolate Cake batter into the two round pans - it's roughly 2 cups of batter per pan.
Bake for 35-40 minutes in an oven preheated to 350°F (180°C), swapping pan places halfway through baking to ensure the cake layers bake evenly.
Prepare Pecan Filling
In a saucepan, whisk together heavy cream, egg yolks, and brown erythritol. Add butter to the saucepan and bring the saucepan over medium heat.
Once the mixture is on a light boil, sprinkle xanthan gum, stir in, reduce to low heat and keep cooking for 3-5 minutes until the mixture thickens.
Add Pecan and Coconut
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, toasted chopped pecans, and unsweetened shredded coconut.
Assemble the Cake
Place the first cake layer onto a cake stand. Add half the coconut-pecan filling. Place the second cake layer on top and add the remaining coconut pecan frosting on top.
