Have you tried our Eggnog Cheesecakes? They’re one delicious keto dessert that you’ll be making all year round!

We love Natvia sweetener and understand that it can be difficult to find in other countries (it is available on Amazon worldwide through the link above). If you cannot get your hands on it we recommend granulated Erythritol for the loaf and powdered Erythritol for the icing.

We’ve designed this low-carb gingerbread cake recipe to make 10 generous serves. The gingerbread loaf can be sliced into smaller pieces to suit your requirements.

  1. Absolutely amazing! It’s delicious and so simple. I’m not a huge fan of natvia but the spices helped to mask the aftertaste that I find using natvia. I did drop my oven lower as it’s fan forced and a hot oven (to 150C) and it took 55min.

  2. I love everything ginger! Gingerbread, ginger snaps, pickled ginger, ginger tea…etc etc. I must say, this is the most delicious cake/loaf I have ever tasted. The crumb is perfection and the taste…divine!!!!! Winner winner ginger dinner.
