The Keto Chocolate Sponge Cake
Getting lots of volume in a keto cake recipe can be a bit tricky since there is no regular flour or gluten. To get the most volume, I use lots of eggs and fine almond flour, which won’t weigh down the eggs. To get the best results, it’s important to whisk the eggs on high speed in a very clean mixing bowl for 7 to 9 minutes, until they are pale, thick and voluminous. When adding the dry ingredients, take care to add them in small batches and fold gently but thoroughly.
I also added a bit of oil to this sponge cake recipe, which isn’t included in most recipes. The oil makes the sponge cake extra rich, almost like a brownie! It’s the perfect complement to the light and fluffy mousse layers.
The Keto Chocolate Mousse
I love chocolate mousse and this keto version is phenomenal! It’s everything you would want a regular chocolate mousse to taste and look like, but keto-friendly and low-carb! Every bite just melts in your mouth! It’s rich and chocolatey; light and fluffy; and the texture is spot on! This mousse with the chocolate cake makes the ultimate keto cake recipe!
For the mousse base, I make a simple chocolate custard. It’s important to let the custard cool completely before adding it to the whipped cream! Just cover the custard and place it into the refrigerator to cool. You can even make it a day ahead of time to save time.
