Carrot-less keto carrot cake may sound like it’s too good to be true, but we promise it will be sure to delight everyone at your next meal!
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.
