Rich Chocolate Keto Birthday Cake Recipes

keto birthday cake

This keto birthday cake recipe is absolutely perfect for a weeknight gathering or a great birthday party. The most important ingredients are flour, butter, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, and baking soda. Just mix all of those ingredients together and then mix them into the mixer. Mix them until they have completely mixed and then scrape off the mixture into the bowl of your mixer.

Next, you will want to add the dry ingredients to your mixer. The dry ingredients will be your unsweetened almond flour. Then add your eggs and your cream of tartar. Mix just long enough that your butter and flour come into contact with each other but not to combine.

Buttermilk And Beat

Next, you will add your buttermilk and beat it until it is completely blended. Then, you will add your non-fat or fat free sour cream and beat it just long enough that your chocolate frosting mixture comes into contact with your batter. Once your chocolate frosting is blended well, it is time to spoon half of it onto your cooled, waxed, non-stick cake pans. Next, you will want to use a large non-stick spatula to scrape down the rest of the batter. You should also do this on your birthday cake recipes. Now, just press down gently on your cake until it forms a flat surface.

Next, you will spoon the remainder of your wet mixture over your cooled, non-stick pan and press down gently until you have formed a firm, consistent layer. It is very important that all the wet ingredients stay wet. If they dry out, they will curdle and your keto birthday cake will not turn out. Once this is done, you will want to pour your hot pink tinted icing on top of your rich chocolate frosting. Once this is done, you can sprinkle your remaining almond flour on top of your cake.

A Pastry Bag With A Zipper

You will now want to cut out a single large circle from your prepared recipe card. This is where you will begin cutting. Keep in mind that while most recipes call for circular cuts, some will require you to go around the circumference of the piece and shave off a corner. Either way, once you have your cut circles made, you will want to pour your chocolate and almond mixture into each one.

Then, you will use a pastry bag with a zipper to seal each bag and put them into your two butter cake pans. As you begin to bake, you will begin to see a churning and whirling action going on. This is the mixture that you are going to add to your two small mixing bowls. Once you have done this, you can then proceed with your keto birthday cake recipe and start turning the mixture.


To ensure that your chocolate and almond mixture reach its melting point quickly, you may want to add some extra water or milk. Whichever you choose to do, remember that the colder you allow the mixture to reach the melting point, the thicker and richer the end result will be. If you wish to achieve the deepest and richest chocolate flavors, then you may choose to add a tablespoon of heavy cream as well. Again, the colder you allow this mixture to go, the deeper your rich chocolate flavors will be. You will also want to add a little bit of food coloring to your mixture as well as the nuts. The darker the color of the nuts, the deeper the chocolate flavor they will produce.
