Who loves the cake? Me!
If you're like me, part of the fun of going to events like weddings, dinners, and birthday celebrations is for the CAKE! Today, many people eat low carb or gluten free diets, so desserts and other foods are increasingly available. But even if there isn't, I know I can make my own dessert when I get home, and I'll be just as satisfied.
Cake has always been a weakness because it is so delicious! Fortunately, now that I make this vanilla keto cake, I can enjoy it without all the blame. It is made from much healthier ingredients, and the texture and taste are delicious and are sure to cure sweet tooth. And if you're in the mood for some chocolate, try this classic yellow birthday cake with chocolate icing. Mmm!
Switch to low carb baking
Switching to using alternative flours and sweeteners can be a challenge. I know that if you are just starting to eat low carbohydrates, there is a learning curve. But this keto cake recipe is very good. I promise! After getting used to low carb cooking, you will find that desserts are just as good, if not better, than original traditional recipes. Is this keto cake identical to something that is not low carb? No, it isn't, but that doesn't make it any less delicious! Try it for yourself and you will see how good it is.

Ingredients for Keto Vanilla Cake
All you need are 11 super simple ingredients to make this tasty keto pie recipe. Don't you love recipes that don't have much fuss?
Refined coconut oil: I choose refined so that it does not have coconut flavor.
Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet: This sweetener is a blend of xylitol, erythritol, and stevia, or you can use my recipe for sweetener. They both taste great and are twice as sweet as white sugar.
Egg Whites: I chose to use only egg whites in this recipe, so it was white in color. I wanted a white cake, not a yellow cake. If you don't mind, you can use 3 whole eggs instead of the 6 egg whites.
Clear Vanilla – Using clear will prevent the vanilla from changing the color of the cake or icing. You can use regular vanilla if you prefer!
Sour Cream: Sour cream will give it a rich, moist flavor.
Erythritol Powder: Using erythritol powder is the way that icing gets its sweetness without refined sugar.
Thick Cream: Add a little healthy fat and texture to the icing with the thick cream.
What is light vanilla?
If you don't bake much, you may never have heard of light vanilla. Light vanilla is actually just like regular vanilla extract, except it no longer has that traditional dark brown color.
When baking a dark colored cake, plain vanilla is perfect because you don't even know what color it is. When you do something with white or even yellow color, often the regular vanilla will change the color. So, the solution is clear vanilla. It's perfect if you're baking, and it's especially good for the icing drizzled on this vanilla keto pie.
How to make keto vanilla cake
Just a few simple steps and you'll have a piece of Vanilla Keto Pie in no time! Here are the easy instructions:
Step One: Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a bread pan by adding parchment paper and giving it a spray or nonstick cooking spray.
Step Two: Whisk together the butter and sweetener until smooth and fluffy, then add the sour cream and vanilla. Once combined, add the egg whites one at a time. Mix after adding each.
Step Three: Slowly add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix. Pour the cake batter into the pan.
Step Four: Bake the cake for 35-40 minutes or until done and cool completely.
Step Five: Mix the erythritol powder, heavy cream, and clear vanilla until smooth. Sprinkle on top of cake and serve.
Can I use frosting instead of enamel?
Yes, this is delicious with cream cheese frosting, raspberry frosting, or even a caramel frosting.
Can I turn this into cupcakes? Or a layer cake?
Yes, to turn this into cupcakes, you can simply put the dough in a paper muffin tin (and sprayed with cooking spray). It will make 8-12 cupcakes. They need to bake at 350 for about 25 minutes.
As it is, this will only make one layer of a layer cake. To make two layers simply duplicate the recipe. I recommend lining up your cake pans with parchment paper just like I lined my bread pan.
