holding a plate with keto chocolate cake

Many keto followers report that their dreams are often filled with visions of their previous favorite foods that they now have to avoid. But if your slumber features visions of rich, keto chocolate cake, you can make that low-carb dessert dream a reality!

This cake features most of the ingredients from the old family chocolate cake recipes that many of us enjoyed as kids, but swap in Swerve for the sugar and substitute coconut and almond flour in place of wheat flour. The result? A rich, moist dessert reminiscent of what you used to enjoy as a kid!

Hip Tips:

  • This cake is moist with a great crumb, which means it’s delectable… but also that it doesn’t hold its form like a standard cake might. Therefore, you must let it cool completely before cutting, or it will crumble instead of slicing.
  • Consider sifting the flour and cocoa to eliminate lumps.
  • To ensure the cake doesn’t get too dry when you’re storing it, slice it once it cools and then wrap each individual slice in plastic wrap – then refrigerate the wrapped slices.
  • Make sure not to over mix it, as we tend to try and get batter perfectly creamy sometimes, but this has a different flour than traditional cake. Otherwise, it could flatten after baking.
  • I topped our cake with heavy whipping cream (beat to thicken it).

This chocolate cake is LIFE! 

The texture is so light and spongy, and not at all what I was expecting from a keto cake! My kids and husband loved it, and had no clue it was keto friendly, which is a success for my picky eaters! I loved the rich chocolate taste and that it takes just one bowl to whip up. I’ll be making it again for sure – Enjoy!

    I’m making this for my birthday on Thursday! Yayyy! I wonder if the slices can be frozen?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Happy Birthday! I bet you could freeze the cake, however you may want to freeze it whole or at least in larger sections to help avoid freezer burn. Hope that helps!

  2. Kristyn

    I wonder if this can be done in cupcake form??

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I bet it could, however you may need to reduce your cooking time. Hope that helps!

    • Christel

      Hi I made these into 18 cupcakes this morning and they were done in 22 min.

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        YUM! Thanks for sharing that info!

  3. Lety

    How sweet is it? Seems like so much sugar. Would it hurt to cut it down a bit?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Lety! You can reduce the amount of sugar to what tastes best for you! However, reducing by a large amount may change the consistency. Hope that helps!

    What did you top it with?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Just whipped up a little heavy whipping cream with a pinch of swerve sweetener.

  5. Christel

    Just wanted to comment that these were delicious! My 6 year and husband had 2 apiece! They smell and taste like regular chocolate cupcakes to us. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! I’m so happy and thanks for the feedback ❤️

    Did anyone notice that this and other baked keto goods have a funny smell to them? This did not smell like a yummy chocolate cake baking in the oven… Just curious if you’ve noticed that with this and other keto baked goods. And if so, do you know why or how to fix this?
