Essential Elements

Heavy Cream – The icing on traditional German chocolate cakes is made with evaporated milk, but heavy cream achieves the same result without adding as many unnecessary carbohydrates.

Without coconut, German chocolate cake wouldn’t be the same. Choose your coconut carefully because many companies add extra sweeteners that significantly raise the carbohydrate content. Unsweetened shredded coconut with only 1g net carbohydrates per serving is available from Bob’s Red Mill. Use the coconut flakes from Bob’s Red Mill if you prefer a chunkier icing.

Coconut flour is a well-kept secret! Just a sprinkle of coconut flour is required in this recipe. When you add it to your frosting, it will prevent the butter from separating, guaranteeing the ideal frosting consistency.

How to Do It

All dry ingredients should be thoroughly combined in a bowl before adding the butter and eggs. As you slowly combine the dry ingredients mixture with the egg mixture, alternating adding milk, until you get a thick, chocolatey cake batter. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes after evenly dividing the batter between two round pans. To time it perfectly, use the knife trick.

In a saucepan(medium) set over medium heat, put brown “sugar”, egg yolks, butter, and heavy cream; heat(nicely thickened). Add the remaining frosting ingredients and thoroughly mix everything together.

Frost the top of the bottom layer before placing the second layer on top to assemble your cake. Spread the remaining frosting equally along the edges after adding a dollop on top of the second layer. Congratulations! Your keto German chocolate cake is now ready to serve!

Chef’s Advice

Not a coconut fan? Prepare the chocolate cake. Then cover it with keto cream cheese frosting! For a lovely brown “sugar” icing, you may also omit the shredded coconut from this recipe.
Be careful not to overbake the cake because it will continue to cook as it cools. Insert a knife or toothpick into the centre to determine its readiness. Remove from the oven if it comes out clean.
It didn’t cook for long enough if you’re having difficulties spreading icing because it’s too thin. Cook it thoroughly until it thickens!
Use a tomato knife or any thin, serrated knife to cut the most precise cake slices. Slice.. Before you make another cut, make sure the knife is totally dry yet still warm to the touch. Your slices will come out cleaner if you first chill the cake for 10 to 15 minutes.
