A Low-Carb Keto Sponge Cake!
This keto cake starts with an amazing almond flour sponge cake. The secret to a fluffy sponge cake is the eggs. Whisking the eggs for about 10 minutes on high speed gives them so much volume, which is just what this cake needs. I went with almond flour for this cake since it’s very light and not too oily, which means it doesn’t weigh down the eggs. Hazelnut flour would also work well for this recipe.
And, instead of sugar, I used granulated stevia. I use a variety of stevia that’s specifically made for baking – it measures just like regular sugar so there’s no need to adjust the recipe. This cake does have a bit of an aftertaste of the stevia but the berry flavor really helps balance it out. Make sure to add the granulated stevia with the dry ingredients after whisking the eggs.
A Super Fluffy Berry Filling!
To complement the light almond sponge cake, I went with a light and fluffy cream cheese, berry and whipped cream filling! This filling is everything! I was literally just eating it with a spoon – it’s that good! I love that berries are allowed on the keto diet, so I made sure to add tons to this recipe!
When making the filling, it’s important not to overmix on the final step! Once you have the cream whipped and cream cheese mixture ready, combine the two and mix for about 30 seconds. Overmixing can cause the filling to separate!
