Keto peach cake with lemon is delicious, moist and nutritious low carb dessert or breakfast. Peaches, almond meal and coconut flour with butter and lemon are great gluten free combination.
It's peach season and I just have to publish few delicious low carb peach recipes. I am so lucky to have peaches in my family's orchard. Our peaches are totally organic, there is no use of pesticides or any harmful chemicals near the orchard.
Homegrown peaches in season
I like to use low carb fruit and vegetable in season, especially when I have my homegrown. Peaches that we have are almost wild. My mother planted peach trees from the peach seeds many years ago. She wasn't hoping that she will have a whole orchard one day. My grandparents used to take care for the land. Years were passing, and sadly, my grandparents died. For few years already nobody is taking care for the orchard.
However, we moved near recently and we are starting to work there. Unfortunately, majority of trees are dead so we will have to cut them. But I managed to find peaches for us to eat and to make few peach pies, cakes and similar treats. I will publish vlog on my IG account about our adventures in the nature so you can see how I am harvesting my peaches and meeting some wild animals on the way.
Peaches on keto
Peaches are good fruit option for keto diet. Of course, as with all the fruits, you shouldn't eat too much but it's fine to use it in your baking. 100 g of peaches contain 8.5 g NET Carbs. For example 100 g of blueberries contains 11.6 g of NET Carbs. So, peach is wonderful choice to prepare your favorite keto peach pie or keto peach cake.
Tips for keto peach cake recipe
Remove the skin from the peaches before slicing and putting on the cake. It will be much more tasty. When peaches are baked, skin becomes a little bit chewy. So it's nicer without the skin.
Use lemon zest of organic lemon or lemon essential oil certified for oral use. Lemon makes huge difference. You just need that lemon zest in combination with peach! I am a huge fan of using essential oils in my cooking. If you want to know more, send me an email and I will enroll you in one of our future free courses!
Leave keto peach cake to cool down before eating. Butter has to set on it's place and needs few minutes after you remove it from the oven.
Serve cake with the spoon of sour cream. I like to have it for my keto breakfast and with afternoon coffee or tea. My kids eat this cake with sour cream for breakfast.
