My wife’s favorite cake is carrot cake. We get her one every year for her birthday from our awesome local bakery. I’ve had some before and it is just about the closest thing to perfection on earth. 

The combination of several spices along with the extra yummy cream cheese icing is what makes carrot cake so delicious and delectable.

When I was much younger, I recall thinking this cake was only for Easter, since the Easter Bunny eats carrots. That makes total sense, right? 

One of my mom’s friends was an incredible cook and baker. He would make a huge carrot cake each Easter and decorate it for Easter dinner. It was always delicious and easily gone within ten minutes of the first slice being cut.

Unfortunately, you can’t have carrot cake while living a low-carb/keto lifestyle. Carrots are a big no-no no (looking at you, recipes that call for them to be added, you monsters). Secondly, there is a ton of added sugar in both the cake mix and icing. Don’t forget about the carbs in the flour, too! In fact, I don’t think anything in regular carrot cake recipes equals”good” or “acceptable” levels of sugar and carbs. 

To make a long story short (I’m not great at that) carrot cake was definitely on the “oh heck no” list when it comes to low-carb. 

That is, until now.

This carrot-less cake can fill the void. Using a combination of unique, yet tasty spices and keto friendly ingredients, you can quit denying yourself this yummy goodness. 

Like our other cakes, this cake is nice and moist. No dry cakes allowed here! Prep time is at a minimum. You can basically dump all the ingredients into a mixer, pour into a pan, place into the oven, and kick back.

  1. Love ,love ,love it. I’ve been on Keto 3 1/2 months. Love baking. This was delicious. Made into little bread but next time will make in mini bunds and put pecans on top of frosting. Thanks

  2. I made this for my husbands BDay on Sunday, he loves carrot cake, I must say it was really good! I followed the recipe but added chopped pecans to the batter and course chopped pecan after icing the entire cake. Will make this again.

    What other sweetener can I use if I don’t have monkfruit?

    • Logan Childress

      Jeanette,

      You can also use powdered erythritol. You’d use a total of 1 cup of it for the recipe. I don’t really recommend a lot of the pre-powdered sweeteners like Splenda because they have tons of hidden carbs.

  4. Does the nutrition cal include frosting?

    • Logan Childress

      Jessica,

      It does not. We actually like the cake just as much without the frosting, so we didn’t include it here.
