Best Ever Keto Chocolate Cake

Posted on

Best keto chocolate cake ever . I made it for my family once and they begge me to make more . One is pre diabetic, diabetic and two are on a diet including me.. They Loved it. Not too sweet and wonderfully chocolaty. Easy to make.. The texture was a little denser than my regular cakes but not too bad.

Just because a dessert doesn’t have gluten or sugar, doesn’t mean it can’t be good. This chocolate layer cake is decadent and fudgy. Made with coffee tot bring out the chocolate flavor, this cake is rich! And the chocolately cream cheese frosting pairs perfectly with the chocolate cake and makes it one of our new favorite Keto desserts—ever!
