This is a basic recipe that you can add spices, adjust sweeteners to taste and make delightful goodies for your non-dairy Keto friends and family.
Keto Moist Vanilla Coconut Cake – Non-Dairy
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup butter-flavored coconut oil or plant butter
- 1 1/2 cup erythritol sweetener, powdered Swerve
- 8 eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 5 oz coconut yogurt, plain (Kite Hill)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease two 6” cake pans or line cupcake pans with liners. This recipe makes 6 jumbo cupcakes.
- In a large bowl add some of the ingredients: coconut flour, baking powder, salt, and 3/4 cup of erythritol sweetener.
- In a second bowl, (or stand up mixer bowl), beat together untilpale and fluffy (3 – 5 minutes):
coconut oil or plant butter, and the remaining 3/4 cup erythritol sweetener.
- Beat in 8 eggs ONE AT A TIME, beating well after each addition.
- Add yogurt and vanilla.
- With the mixer on low, slowly add the coconut flour mixture and blend until just smooth.
- Spoon evenly into pans (or cupcake liners) to about 2/3 full.
- Bake until pale golden and a wooden pick inserted in center of cakes comes out clean. Approximately 20 minutes for cakes and 12 – 15 minutes for cupcakes.
- Cool 10 minutes in pan on racks. Run a knife around edge to loosen cake and allow to cool completely before frosting.
- Make cream cheese frosting. Beat together until fluffy:
2 (8 oz) pkg non-dairy cream cheese 1/2 cup butter-flavored coconut oil 2 tbsp vanilla almond milk
- Slowly add sweetener at medium speed and beat until smooth.
⅓ – ½ cup erythritol sweetener, powdered (Swerve)
- Once cake is cool, assemble and frost.
I have made the frosting with Earth Bound butter also instead of the cream cheese and coconut oil. I use 2 cups of Earth bound butter and I cup of powdered sugar and approximate the milk. I sometimes add vanilla or other flavoring or food color. My fellow Keto-Partner in crime calls me the “scientist.” I call it having fun experimenting. Lucky for me my family eats my experiments as some are what I call “Labors of Love.”
