This Keto Carrot cake recipe was such a shocker. I was not expecting to make a frosted carrot cake and fit a hearty slice in 4 net carbs. Try this recipe and let me know your experience in the comments section.

It is 4 net carbs per slice, Unfortunately I have mentioned 2.5 net carbs in the video. All the macros are in the description section.
Okay so I did make this, it came out to the closest thing. In the video it says almond flour but in the description it says 1 cup of ground almonds, so I was unsure. I did everything exact but I used a silicone square pan and noticed that it took way longer to make than 30 mins. More like an hr. It was really good and amazed how you came up with this, thank you. 😊😊
I made this today and it's easily the best carrot cake ever. My favourite recipe has always been the BBC Foodaid one and yours is a keto version of it. I used 2cups of almond flour as I didn't have flax and reduced the eggs to 3 as the mix looked looser than yours at that stage. It's light but moist and incredibly filling. I did a square traybake which made 16 portions. 1 piece alone would be great for breakfast/lunch on the go as it's VERY filling and calorie dense. This would easily see me through to dinner.
This is the first keto carrot cake that looks like really good. Have you tried using courgette instead of carrots?
Thx 4 the Post.
Thank you for this wonderful recipe! I love it and I very especially like that YOU (unlike so many others) actually TASTE what you have cooked!
Beautiful. I think this one is next for me. I have your lemon pound cake in the oven for the second time. With a little more lemon juice and zest from a lime!
This looks delicious but I'm in the 'transformation' stage of Keto right now so have to wait … How do I print it out please?
I made this today exactly as you did, and it was absolutely fantastic! It made a lot, so I am going to freeze most of it, but I have a friend who I am giving a couple pieces to, who is low carb. I am going to tweak the recipe a little bit to my personal taste and hope you are not offended by it. I am going to skip the nutmeg and just use the cinnamon, and I am going to replace a little bit of the cream cheese with butter in the frosting. Thank you so much for such a great recipe!
We gave problems with sugar alcohols (gastric distress). What can we use in equivalent to substitute for erythritol in your delicious recipes?
Lol, while making this and watching the video, I tried whipping my eggs as fast as the video was going about to break my wrist only to notice it was fast forwarded. Smdh
Can I make it with stevia powder instead of erythritol?
Is Erythritol your sweetener of choice? PS cake looks fabulous! 😊
Could you tell me how much stevia you would use instead please? Looks delicious; thank you for sharing 🙂
Thank you!! I love carrot cake..!!
Do you have any recommendation for the amount of coconut flour I’d have to use in place of almond flour? It’s cheaper and seems since there’s already coconut in this it’d be a better option. I tried looking it up and what I found seems to indicate 1/4 cup of coconut flour for every 1 cup of almond flour…..and possibly an extra egg.
Thank you 😊
This looks so good. I should've never watched this. I'd eat the whole thing in one sitting. 😣
Oh my that definitely looks yum. Will try and revert surely. Drool. Thank you for your lovely recipes
Hi. How did you get so few carbs? Only the sweetner you use got 4 gr carbs per tsp. Thanks
