You could see my photos of cups of tea and coffee with a slice of cake in my garden. That’s something I appreciate so much and I try to enjoy as much as possible.

I love my garden so much! My husband made a tree house for our children to play. Everything is green and peaceful, you can hear bees and smell the flowers. Perfect place to retreat after work and during the weekend.

This Sunday I took a piece of this low carb German Chocolate cheesecake and enjoy beautiful weather. Soaking up all the sun I could soak. This lockdown is helping me to be with myself. There is no need to travel anywhere, no need to meet anyone. There’s just a need to be conscious and take care for yourself and your loved ones.

I started my career as an ICU nurse so I know very well how harsh life could be and I am always grateful for every healthy day I get with my family. This lockdown just reminds me on that so much stronger. And I am using it in the best possible way – to cuddle my children, bake my cakes and create more low carb content here.

TIPS FOR KETO GERMAN CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE RECIPE

BAKED OR NO BAKE CHOCOLATE CRUST

This keto crust is wonderful and goes perfectly with this german chocolate cheesecake cake. You can make it as baked or no bake cake crust. If you bake it it will have wonderful flavor and it will be a little bit crispy. It will remind on a cake crust with Oreo cookies. However, you don’t have to bake it al all. Just press in the dough for keto crust in a pan and leave it in the fridge for 15 minutes and that’s it! It won’t be crunchy but it will be easy to make and fork will go through the crust like through the butter.

GERMAN CAKE KETO TOPPING

Topping for this keto German cake is amazing! I roasted shredded coconut for extra flavor and it’s so good. Don’t skip this step because it makes so huge difference in flavor. Roasting or toasting shredded coconut on a pan is a literally 1 minute procedure but it is so important for tasty result.

Also, you can use raw chopped pecans, but if you toast them for a minute on a pan it will be so much better!

    Question: What brand of shredded coconut do you use. I want to try this recipe but my coconut was dry and tasteless in other recipes , so Iā€™d like to buy another brand first.
    Looks yummy.

      Hi Gabrielle, I am based in Europe so I use some unsweetened shredded coconut from Aldi. Nothing special. Try to toast it for few minutes on a pan, it gets much better.
