Recipe: Keto Chocolate Loaf Cake
For the Cake:
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup granulated erythritol or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 large eggs
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips (optional)
For the Chocolate Glaze:
- 1/4 cup sugar-free chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
1. Preheat and Prepare:
- Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan and line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, granulated erythritol (or your chosen sweetener), baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
3. Combine Wet Ingredients:
- In another bowl, whisk the eggs, melted butter, melted coconut oil, almond milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.
4. Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures:
- Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir until everything is well combined. If desired, fold in the sugar-free chocolate chips.
- Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs attached.
- Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan and let it cool completely on a wire rack.
7. Prepare the Chocolate Glaze:
- In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the sugar-free chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring between each, until the mixture is smooth and melted.
8. Glaze the Cake:
- Once the cake is completely cool, drizzle the chocolate glaze over the top.
