How To Make Keto Spice Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 170C/350F.
  2. Grease 10in a round baking tin with butter and line the base with parchment paper.
  3. In your stand mixer, place the butter and cream cheese. Mix on medium speed until well combined and smooth.
  4. Turn off the mixer and add the Natvia, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt, and baking powder. Mix on low speed until combined.
  5. Add the coconut flour, almond flour, and eggs. Mix on low speed to combine the flour and eggs.
  6. Scrape down the mixing bowl, then mix on medium for 2-3 minutes until all ingredients are well combined.

  1. I LOOOOOVE this cake. It’s so delicious and moist! Do you have any suggestions on how to sneak some pumpkin puree into this? I think it would make a fantastic pumpkin cake!

    • Hi Sanayo,

      I’m so glad you love it! It is a very moist cake already so I would recommend reducing the butter and cream cheese to 4oz each and adding 2 oz of pumpkin puree and see how that goes!

      I will be posting a pumpkin spice cake in a couple of weeks that you might like 🙂

    Made this recipe as cupcakes today; the recipe made 18, and the baking time was around 30 minutes. I’m amazed that these are Keto; they’re SO delicious! One recipe of frosting covered all 18 cupcakes. I didn’t have the specified sweetener, so I used Swerve granulated for the spice cake and Swerve confectioner’s for the frosting.

    Absolutely superb! I also added one teaspoon vanilla to both the cake and the frosting, with good results. Will definitely be making these again! I only wish I could post a photo.

    Even my non keto friends loved this. Yes, it’s dense but it’s satisfyingly spicy and sweet and scrummy. I’m about to make another and freeze it so it lasts until Christmas.

  4. By chance could I bake this using a square muffin pan, and whatever I don’t eat within a day, put the rest in the freezer? I am preparing for just me, or one person.

    To my surprise this came out much better than I was expecting. I took one reviewer’s advice and used pumpkin spice mix instead of individual spices and it worked well. Cake was a bit dense but I still enjoyed it. Will definitely make it again.

  7. This cake is delicious. Used heaped teaspoon mixed spice instead of ginger ,cloves etc and heaped teaspoon cinnamon. Swapped Natvia with xylitol. Didn’t affect my blood sugar (I have Type 1 diabetes). Will definitely make again.

  8. How much frosting does this make? Would it be possible to bake this in two 7-inch cake tins to make a layer cake, and then frost the middle and the top? Thanks! 🙂 I will be making this over Christmas!

    • Hi Anu,

      The frosting on the cake is quite thick, I think it would be a good amount to ice 2 layers of a smaller cake. If in doubt, you could always make a little extra icing or top it off with fresh whipped cream. I hope that helps.

  9. What can you use in place of this Natvia and Natvia Icing mix. It is very expensive and you have to order it from Amazon and pay shipping.

    Reply
    • Hi Lynne,
      You can use your preferred granulated sweetener for the cake and your preferred finely powdered sweetener for the frosting. Natvia has equal sweetness to xylitol and is slightly sweeter then erythritol. I hope this helps
