Print recipe

Wow, talk about a chocolate lover’s dream! This Keto Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting is proof that any recipe can be turned keto-friendly. It’s chocolate on chocolate with more chocolate! The rich, sweet chocolate cake topped is topped with a creamy chocolate frosting. It’s almost impossible to have just one bite!

Believe it or not, you can have this homemade cake and frosting made and ready to serve in less than an hour. It’s sure to become a regular dessert on your family’s menu!

The secret ingredient in this recipe is mayonnaise. But don’t let the idea of mayonnaise in a cake scare you away.  Mayonnaise is made from oil and eggs which is in most cake recipes. This cake is moist and decadent.

You’ll start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 13×9 inch pan.

Sift together flour, swerve, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Add mayonnaise, brewed coffee (or water), and vanilla. Beat for 2 minutes and pour into prepared pan.

Bake for 30-35 minutes. You’ll know the keto chocolate cake is ready when you can insert a toothpick into the middle of the cake and it comes out clean. The cake will continue to set as it cools, so don’t be surprised if it’s not totally set right out of the oven. Let cake cool completely before frosting with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting.

This Keto Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting recipe is proof that any recipe can be turned keto-friendly.

 

Next up, is making the chocolate cream cheese frosting. While the cake is cooling, prepare the frosting. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream together butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy, for about 3 minutes. Slowly add in the Swerve, sifted cocoa powder, vanilla, liquid stevia, and salt until combined.

If frosting’s not your thing, you can also serve the cake as is, or with a light dusting of confectioner’s-style Swerve.

    I don’t like mayonnaise. Can you taste it still in this recipe?

      Hi There! I know mayonnaise may not sound appetizing in a cake, but don’t worry, you cannot even taste it 🙂

    Hi Suzanne,

    I made this cake exact to recipe but it did not set. Was just wondering if eggs are missing from the recipe?

      Hey Robin. This cake isn’t missing eggs as the mayo serves as the eggs and oil, plus makes the cake very moist. With most almond flour based cakes, it may come out of the oven a little soft but sets as it cools. Based on your oven, you may need to bake it a little more.

        Thank you for replying! I used a vegan mayo so that’s where I went wrong, will make it again soon!

    Hi there! Looking forward to making this in a few weeks for my son’s birthday. Is there a sub for liquid stevia? Thanks!

    Sorry I should have been more clear with my question lol! I meant to ask, does it have to be a liquid sweetener? I have lakanto classic which is granular erythritol and monkfruit extract.

    We love this recipe. I have made this recipe many times however one thing you may want to change is the size of the baking dish and the cooking time. I found that using the 6″X10″ and adding 4 minutes to the baking time make for a better cake. Love it.
