Keto Chocolate Cake

This recipe is a slightly modified version from my friend Megan Kelly.  She has an incredible blog and is a Licensed Esthetician specializing in holistic nutrition, woman’s hormones, and spiritual health.

Keto Chocolate Cake Ingredients

1 cup of raw cacao powder

1 cup of coconut flour

1 tsp of pink salt

16 organic, pasture-raised eggs

1 tsp of baking powder

3 full squirts of chocolate stevia

Frosting Ingredients:

½ cup of raw cacao powder

3 small ripe Hass avocados

2 full squirts of chocolate stevia

1/8 tsp of pink salt

¼ cup of coconut oil (melted)

Yield:  1 large cake with roughly 8 large square pieces.

Keto Chocolate Cake Instructions

  1. Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix both the wet and dry ingredients together separately
  3. Combine the dry and wet ingredients together
  4. Coconut flour can often be very tough to mix so you can use a blender or food processor but only blend it until it is mixed together and be careful not to overdo it.
  5. Grease a large baking pan (9×13) or 2 small pans and pour in the batter.
  6. Bake the mixture for 35-40 minutes (25-30 minutes if using smaller pans). Check if the cake is done by putting a toothpick to see if it comes out clean to ensure it is cooked through.
  7. Let the finished cake cool and top it with the chocolate frosting

Chocolate Frosting Instructions

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a food processor until it is all whipped up.
  2. You can serve this immediately and store it in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  3. If you want to store it longer, you can put it in the freezer.
  4. Make sure the cake cools down before applying the frosting or it will melt into a chocolate liquid.

Special Notes

In Megan’s original recipe, she had ¾ – 1 cup of honey in the cake and ½ cup of maple syrup in the frosting.  This is WAY TOO MUCH sugar for my liking so I changed the recipe and substituted liquid stevia.  Another good alternative would be to use monk fruit if you are sensitive to stevia.

Coconut flour is very drying and absorbs a lot of fluid.  This is why we use 16 eggs in this recipe to get the coconut flour to bake properly and form into a fluffy cake.

Dr Jockers Comments

If you are looking for an amazing keto chocolate cake recipe for a birthday or special party, you will not find a better one than this!  This recipe tastes amazing, can be made in less than an hour and is ketogenic and fat burning!!

I love cacao, which is the foundation of chocolate.  Cacao and chocolate are rich in anti-oxidants and compounds that help to stimulate neurotransmitter production to improve dopamine, serotonin and endorphin levels so you feel amazing and are able to think sharp and clear!

This recipe is loaded with healthy fat sources from coconut flour, coconut oil, organic eggs, avocados and cacao powder.  The eggs also provide a good amount of healthy protein and you have lots of fiber from the coconut flour to support the gut microbiome.

    If I was going to use monk fruit what measurements would you suggest. I am still trying to figure out how the different sweetners can be exchanged

    Gosh I would have to get a few more chickens if I wanted to make this cake lol!
    I wonder if some avocado or organic applesauce could be substituted for some of the eggs?

    If this chocolate cake is as good as you say, and can fit into keto plan, I’ll splurge on the eggs. How much do u pay for a small square bakery cake!? This sounds worth a try to me! Thanx

      Let me know how it turns out Tami!

    I have a lot of eggs on hand from my chickens so I was excited to try this recipe. I usually am satisfied with less sugar in recipes, but this cake was very unsweetened. I did not make the icing because I do not usually like icing so maybe that is where some sweetness is that I’m missing. I am going to try it again with some monkfruit instead of stevia.

      Thats awesome Becca, always great to be able to grow and raise your own food! Yes the icing would add some additional sweetness, let me know how it turns out with monk fruit!
