Keto Coffee Cake Will Be Your New Favorite Breakfast Treat
Meet your coffee’s new BFF!
Sometime’s you just need a delicious treat to go along with your morning coffee. This keto coffee cake is packed with all the sweet and cinnamon flavor you love, but without all the added carbs and sugar. It’s so yummy, you’ll find yourself snacking on a slice of keto coffee cake even when it’s well past morning! 😋
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.
- I used a blend of both Swerve and Monk Fruit to balance the sweetness without the cooling effect. If you have a sweetener of choice, follow our conversion guide for popular keto sweeteners and adjust the measurements accordingly.
- 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.
