Following a ketogenic diet can be tough at times, especially around birthday times, so I have set out to create the worlds best keto birthday cake.
Maybe you are making this for yourself, or you could be making this for a friend who is keto. Either way, you are going to blow socks off with this incredible recipe. This comes highly recommended to impress even those who aren’t keto.
So what’s the secret to this Keto Birthday Cake?
Well, in my testing for the revamp of the keto bread recipe, I noticed that gelatine has a pretty unique texture when it comes to being a binding agent. The consistency and gelatinous feel reminded me a lot of cake, which is exactly why I use gelatine in this recipe.
Gelatine isn’t vegetarian or vegan-friendly, however, you could also substitute this with guar gum or xanthan gum if that is important to you.
I borrowed the icing from one of my previous Lemon and Coconut Cake Recipes, as it has been a super delicious recipe for a long time now. The addition of a little lemon juice in the icing is what makes the vanilla flavor pop!
