12. Low Carb Caramel Cake- Love at first bite with this keto caramel cake. Your tastebuds will groove with joy and you won’t believe it’s low carb and sugar-free! Amazing almond flour vanilla cake with a rich caramel glaze.

Low Carb Caramel Cake


  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup unflavored whey protein powder
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2/3 cup Swerve Sweetener
  • 4 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 batches of sugar-free caramel sauce
  1. Preheat the oven to 325F and oil 2 8-inch round cake pans. Dice parchment to line the bottoms of the pans and oil the parchment as well.
  2. Mix the almond flour, coconut flour, whey protein, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Beat the butter and sweetener together until light and fluffy in a large bowl. Hit in the eggs one at a time and scrape down the beaters and bowl as necessary. Beat in the vanilla extract
  4. Add the dry ingredients in two summations, alternating with the almond milk. Beat until well combined. 
  5. Distribute the batter between the two cake pans and spread to the edges. Smooth the tops and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the tops are firm to the touch. 
  6. Detach and let cool in the pans, then flip out onto a wire rack. Remember to peel off the parchment paper if it sticks to the cake layers. 
Caramel Glaze:
  1. Prepare a double lot of the Sugar-Free Caramel Sauce. Be careful to use a large saucepan (at least 3 quarts) as it will bubble up quite a bit. 
  2. Let the sauce cool down to room temperature. It should be a swift dump at this point, but still pourable, and it will continue to thicken as it cools. 
  3. Next, Place one coating of cake on a serving plate and spill about 1/3 of the caramel sauce on top. Carefully brush to the edges with a spoon.
  4. Place the second layer of cake on top. Spill some of the caramel over the top, letting it drip down the sides, spreading it over the top and sides as you go. Carry on until the top and sides are well covered. Optionally, you can simply let it drip down the sides and not spread it over. 
  5.  In addition, If your caramel is too slim and is dripping too much off the sides of the cake, you can combine in a tablespoon or two of powdered Swerve to help thicken it up. If it gets too thick, you can gently rewarm it over low heat to thin it up again.
