HOW TO MAKE SUGAR FREE LEMON BLUEBERRY CAKE
This keto lemon blueberry cake is one of the easiest keto cakes to make. Literally, you just mix all ingredients for the cake in a bowl, bake and put delicious keto frosting on top. You need just one bowl to mix the cake ingredients, and that's what I really love when it comes to desserts. Simplicity, fast to prepare, delicious and KETO! 🙂
KETO LEMON CAKE
For the cake you will need some simple KETO INGREDIENTS:
Almond flour or blanched almond meal - I love using blanched almonds for this cake because of the wonderful color and really moist and delicious keto cake structure.
Coconut flour is definitely one of the staples of every keto kitchen. I use it for so many low carb baked goods. Make sure to be precise with coconut flour because it is absorbing the liquid and if you add too much you will get a really dry cake. But don't skip it because this ratio of almond and coconut flour is perfect to get a structure of a real cake.
Low carb sweetener of your choice - I love using erythritol, but you can use xylitol (be careful if you have a dog) or another sweetener you like.
Lemon juice and lemon zest
Eggs - definitely use large eggs on a room temperature to get the best result.
Almond milk or another nut milk or coconut milk. Also diluted heavy whipping cream could work great. Just dilute it with water 50:50.
Fresh blueberries - don't forget to leave few to decorate the cake!
KETO BUTTERCREAM FROSTING WITH LEMON
When you combine mascarpone cheese with butter and a little bit of heavy whipping cream you'll get the most delicious keto buttercream. Smooth and so tasty! Just add some powdered low carb sweetener, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest and that's it! Keto lemon buttercream! Pure deliciousness!
Just whisk it until smooth. Don't over mix it to avoid it to be too thick or to turn into butter. That's why I always whisk these type of buttercream with mascarpone or with cream cheese.
When you put buttercream on top, decorate with few blueberries and leave it in the fridge for few hours. It's so much better when cooled. Of course, if you're having a huge desire for something sweet, you might get the piece of keto cake like this, even when it's just made!
