KEY INGREDIENTS KETO CARROT CAKE

Allulose

Allulose is a rare, naturally occurring sugar that is very low in calories and well as low carb. It is my favorite keto ingredient and the backbone of my baking. It is the perfect sweetener for our Keto cake!

Check out more keto recipes with allulose.

Oat Fiber

This zero calorie fiber is light and fluffy but can be a bit dry on its own. Paried with carrots, the oat fiber makes for a soft and moist cake. LifeSourse is absolutely my recommended brand. Other brands have resulted in ruined baked goods so make the effort to get LifeSource brand oat fiber.

🥄TECHNIQUE

This low carb carrot cake is VERY easy to assemble! I’ll admit I sometimes don’t even use two bowls!

Cake

Line your baking dish with parchment paper. This is important because the LAST thing you want is to be trying to pry off a stuck on cake! TIP: spread out the batter with a spatula and then give it a little shake to smooth out the ridges left by the spatula.

Carrot

Use the finer setting on the grater for the carrots. This ensures for small pieces that can incorporate well into the batter.

🍳EQUIPMENT

🔍TROUBLESHOOTING

Let’s plan ahead in case we hit any bumps in the road!

Why is my cake batter batter dry?

This batter is naturally dry and not as runny as traditional cake batter. Double checking all the liquids, if it is still very dry try adding an additional tablespoon of almond milk. The final texture should be stiff like a mousse.

How do I prevent the cake from cooking unevenly?

Try to ensure that the cake layer is even so it will cook at the same rate. Also, rotate the pan half way through baking to help ensure even baking. I do not recommend using convection with this recipe.

🍽SERVING

Here are a few ideas for your gorgeous Keto Carrot Cake!

How to serve Keto Carrot Cake:

  • Perfect for Easter and spring gatherings
  • With decorations it could make an awesome birthday cake 🎂 for a little one
  • Awesome for an afternoon brunch

What to drink with Keto Carrot Cake:

This would be amazing served with some creamy coffee for an after dinner dessert. Paris so well with tea and especially Chai! An ice cold glass of milk (almond or maybe macadamia!) would also be so delicious with this cake.
