Keto Chocolate Sheet Cake

This is real deal here. You cannot tell a difference between the Keto version and the non. In fact, I believe the Keto version is better. You decide for yourself, whip you up a batch and let me know what you think!

Ingredients

Cake Mix:

  • 2 Cups Almond Flour
  • 3/4 Cups of Keto sweetener of choice (we use Lakanto Classic in the 3 lb bag on Amazon —> https://amzn.to/35P958w)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 unflavored Isopure whey protein powder; I order mine on Amazon here because I haven’t found in stores –>https://amzn.to/35NPANB
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter (8 tbs)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 coca powder (unsweetened)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup water (needed a 2nd time)

Icing/Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup coca powder (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 and 1/2 cup powdered Keto sweetener; (we use this on Amazon —> https://amzn.to/3caTyB3)
  • 1/4 tsp Xanthan gum (yes, you will need this) you can find here —>https://amzn.to/3628Yqn
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans

Cake Instructions:

Pre-heat your oven to 325 and grease a 10 x 15 sheet pan really good. In a bowl, add the almond flour, sweetener, coconut flour, protein powder, baking powder and salt and whisk together and set to the side.

On your stove-top in a medium sized saucepan, combine the butter, water and coca powder. Heat on medium stirring these ingredients until melted. Bring them to a boil now then remove from the heat.

In your dry mix bowl, add the eggs, vanilla, HWC and 1/4 cup of water, and hot wet ingredients and mix until it’s all combined real well.

Spread this mixture evenly in your greased sheet pan. Bake 15-25 minutes until it passes the toothpick test. Once done, remove from oven and set aside.

While your cake is cooking, let’s make the frosting. In another saucepan, add butter, coca powder, cream and water. Bring these ingredients to a simmer, continuing to stir until it’s smooth. At this point, stir in the vanilla, add your powdered sweetener, 1/2 a cup at a time, whisking really good so it will dissolve the clumps. Finally, add in the Xanthan gum and whisk it in as well. Put your pecans in and stir them in.

Once your sheet cake has cooled, pour the icing/frosting over the cake and spread with a spatula. Make sure it’s nice and even over the entire surface of the cake.
