Keto Chocolate Bundt Cake

low carb sugar free bundt cake

Keto Chocolate Bundt Cake makes a great birthday cake or…

..if you're like me, it also makes an easy cake that you can hoard to yourself. lol. 

This cake is light and fluffy but still moist in the center. It really does taste like REAL chocolate cake and not some sad keto attempt at cake.

The base of this cake is mainly almond flour and cocoa powder and just a touch of coconut flour. This provides a very rich base for the cake. 

We then add a bit of arrowroot starch to lighten the cake and keep in moist in the center, along with a small amount of xanthan gum to provide some chewiness to the cake.

Ingredients In This Low Carb Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe

  • Almond Flour & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener – I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. I also used the powdered in this recipe because it works great in baked goods but ALSO creates perfect frosting every time!
    Xanthan gum – This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the muffins a chewier texture. You can also use cornstarch instead.
  • Arrowroot Starch – This can be substituted with cornstarch. It adds a lightness to the cupcakes and keeps them moist inside! It's become one of my new favourite ingredients
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – Rodelle is my favourite brand of cocoa powder! It just always tastes really great in every recipe I've tried. But you could also use dark cocoa to get that oreo colour naturally in the muffins and cookie portion of this recipe.
  • Vanilla Extract – You can use any you prefer, I tend to use pure vanilla but artificial or vanilla powder also work. I actually added vanilla powder to my frosting because I loved the flavour and little black specks it added!
  • Coconut Oil – melted butter can be substituted but I do find coconut oil to work best!
  • Sukrin Brown Sweetener – adds brown sugar flavour! This can be subbed with more regular sweetener if you do not have it.
  • Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chips – I use this Krisda brand here in Canada but you are welcome to use whichever brand you prefer!

Tools I Used To Make Keto Chocolate Bundt Cake

  • Nutritional Food Scale – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!
  • Bundt Cake Pan 
  • Spatula 
  • Mixing Bowls

Tips For Making Keto Chocolate Bundt Cake

  • This recipe also goes great with a simple sugar glaze or cream cheese glaze if you ever want to switch it up!
  • If you don't have arrowroot starch, you can also make this cake using cornstarch in place of it. If you don't have either, you can leave it out and add an extra 1/2 tbsp coconut flour. Just know that the cake may not stay quite as moist in the center.
  • You don't have to use xanthin gum if you don't have it but I do highly recommend buying it when you can as it helps immensely with giving the cake a chewier, more traditional texture.
  • Make sure all of your cake ingredients are at room temperature so you don't cause the coconut oil to harden again.
  • Store this cake, covered in the fridge for up to 5 days OR freeze, sliced and layered between wax paper in an airtight container.

  12. Once the mixture is smooth,  you can begin pouring it over your cake. This can make a mess so I suggest placing the plate the cake is on onto a wire rack over top of a baking sheet to catch any excess that trails off, then wipe the edges of the plate clean. 
  13. Once the chocolate glaze starts to set, you can press pecans, coconut or another type of chopped nuts all around the bottom edge of the cake. 
  14. Let the glaze set fully before slicing and serving. Enjoy your Keto Chocolate Bundt Cake!
