Keto Coffee Cake

yield: 9 SERVINGS

prep time: 20 MINUTES

cook time: 40 MINUTES

total time: 60 MINUTES

Ingredients

Cake batter:

Cinnamon Filling:

Crumble Topping:

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grab a 9"x9" pan and grease with butter or oil, making sure all sides and bottom are coated well. Set aside.

2

To make the cake filling:

In a large bowl, cream together butter, granular sweetener, monk fruit sweetener, and vanilla extract for 3 minutes with an electric mixer.

3

Slowly add in one egg at a time. Scrape the side of the bowl to make sure everything is getting mixed together.

4

In a separate bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to wet ingredients and continue mixing.

5

Add in sour cream and mix for one minute. Set cake batter aside.

6

To make cinnamon filling:

In a small bowl, add all ingredients together and set aside.

7

To make crumbled topping:

In a medium-size bowl, add almond flour, granular sweetener, cinnamon, chopped pecans, and melted butter. Cut in with a pastry cutter or fork to create a crumble texture.

8

In the greased 9x9 pan, add 1/2 of the cake batter. Sprinkle cinnamon filling evenly over the first cake batter layer, and then add the remaining cake batter to the pan.

9

Top the cake batter with the crumble. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes. The foil helps prevent the crumble toppings from burning while baking.

10

Let the coffee cake cool for 15-20 minutes to firm up, then serve and enjoy!

Cinnamon sugar flavor you can savor!

If I’m being honest, the cake portion of this recipe is rich, buttery, and moist, but that the crumbled topping is my favorite part. 😍 The sweet and slightly crunchy crumble with accents of warm cinnamon simply can’t be beat!

It may be called a keto coffee cake, but in case you’re wondering, it doesn’t actually have any coffee in it — it just pairs perfectly with a hot cup of coffee. ☕️

Hip tips for making the best keto coffee cake:

  • With the sweetened crumble on top, it poses a risk of burning the top before the cake is cooked through so be sure to cover your baking pan with foil to prevent the burn.
  • Allow the cake to fully cool before cutting into it so it has time to set and firm up into that velvety quick bread texture.

Additional Notes

Don’t be alarmed by the high total carb count! Fiber and erythritol, the main ingredient in Swerve, does not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular carbs do, so we subtracted them from the total carb count. You’ll see that the net carbs are much lower once you remove the sugar alcohols and fiber.

    Is there something I can substitute the sour cream with?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! We haven’t tried this swap ourselves, but plain Greek yogurt may be an alternative to using sour cream. If you try it, let us know how it turns out!

  2. SamieP

    This was amazing! Best keto dessert I had. Thanks so much for the recipe!
    Question is it supposed to be super runny looking in the middle when you take it out? I baked it for an extra 20 mins because I didn’t think it was done, almost burned it and it was still appearing runny in the middle but once it cooled it was fine. I didn’t know if it was the sour cream…

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      It may appear runny, but once it cools off it should all firm up for you.
