I just can’t gush enough about this Keto Gooey Butter Cake which I created specifically for my hubby who had fallen in love with this southern dessert a year prior to us entering the ketogenic lifestyle.

As you may know, here at Tara’s Keto Kitchen, I’m busy in the kitchen creating and perfecting keto desserts and keto food options to help make the ketogenic diet sustainable over the long term.

Keto Gooey Butter Cake

A keto gooey butter cake with only 1 total carb (0 net carb) per serving for all of us that love the taste and texture of traditional butter cake. This is one of the keto recipes we like to make and take to potlucks & social gatherings. We cut the pan into 24 small squares because a little butter cake goes a long way!

Start to Finish: 1 hour 15 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (2 oz)
  • 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 8 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup BochaSweet

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl combine: 2 oz coconut flour (1/4 cup), 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.
  3. Stir to combine, set aside.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl combine: 8 tablespoons melted butter (1 stick), 3/4 cup heavy cream, 2 eggs, 1 cup water, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, 1 cup BochaSweet.
  5. Use a blender to blend the wet ingredients until combined. Then add your dry ingredients. Blend on medium speed for 1 minute. Stop and use a spatula to clean the sides and bottom and blend an additional 2 minutes on medium high speed. The batter will thicken considerably and be the consistency of cake batter once done.
  6. Pour into a baking dish and bake at 325 degrees for 60 minutes.
  7. Cool for 4 hours before serving.
