Moist and fluffy keto yogurt cake with cream cheese frosting is fantastic keto cake for every celebration. Keto birthday or keto Christmas will be much sweeter with this delicious low carb dessert.

When you make this keto cake you will be surprised how moist and flavorful it is. Yogurt in cake works perfectly. It’s moist and flavorful. Especially in combination with vanilla and a pinch of lemon zest. The best of all, this is 100% keto and guilt free dessert. It’s sugar free, no gluten or anything artificial. Just pure, real food dessert. The best part of this cake, except of the taste and flavor is how it’s easy to make! You just need to mix it and bake. Frosting is also super easy to make, you don’t need any baking skills for this.

Yogurt on keto

Yogurt could be good for you. Fermented food is rich in probiotics so it is beneficial for gut health. Usually yogurt has 4 g of carbs in 100 g when produced but on the way from the production to the store and all the way to your house carbs are additionally reduced because good bacteria are eating remaining sugar.

That’s why, don’t skip yogurt in this yogurt cake recipe. Flavor and texture would be completely different.

How to choose yogurt?

Look for yogurt with lower amount of carbohydrates. There are plenty in the stores now, it’s not hard to find a good one.

In Europe we can easily find in the stores liquid/drinking yogurt that’s similar to kefir and that’s what I use in this cake. Unsweetened without any added flavor or color added. Just pure yogurt. Always read declaration and check what’s inside and take the real stuff.

Low carb & keto baking

When it comes to low carb and keto baking, the most popular flours are almond and coconut flour. In this recipe for yogurt cake that’s winning combination and I use both. I have a lot of cake recipes with almond flour only and with coconut flour only if you are avoiding one of those.


Yogurt cake lemon and vanilla

Organic lemon zest or few drops of good lemon essential oil and a splash of vanilla will make this cake delicious and flavorful. Smell and taste of lemon and vanilla are contributing to special holiday feeling.

Cream cheese keto frosting

Cream cheese is delicious and so good to work with when making keto desserts. I mix it with powdered sweetener and a little bit of softened butter. Also added a little bit of vanilla this time. This type of frosting is perfect for low carb and keto cakes and you can use it on other keto cakes and desserts. When choosing butter, try to find good quality grass fed butter. Color will be yellow and taste is incredibly good. You can really taste the difference with great quality butter.
