How to make Keto Carrot Cake

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 2: With parchment paper, line two 8-inches cake pans, then grease with cooking spray.

Step 3: Combine the wet ingredients in a medium bowl.

Step 4: In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients until combined.

Step 5: Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Mix well until incorporated and make sure to not over mix the cake batter.

Step 6: Into the batter, fold the carrots.

Step 7: Evenly pour the batter into the prepared pans. Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes. Then, do a toothpick test.

Step 8: Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool for at least 15 to 30 minutes in the pan before inverting them onto cooling racks.

Frosting:

Step 1: In the meantime, prepare the frosting. Cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Mix in the sweetener until smooth. Add in the vanilla and mix. Then, add in the heavy cream a bit at a time until you have a nice and fluffy frosting.

Step 2: After the cakes have cooled completely, spread the frosting on the top and bottom layers. On top, place the top layer, then spread the remaining frostings on the sides. And sprinkle with coconut.

Step 3: Place the cake in the fridge to set for at least an hour.
