Sweet Keto Chocolate Squares With Chocolate Glaze and Chopped Nuts

If you follow the keto diet, you’ll know that you’re only allowed a very limited amount of carbs per day.

That obviously includes sugar, which typically means cakes and sweets are a no-go.

But not anymore! With these scrumptious keto cakes, you can make dessert and eat it too!

1. Keto Strawberry Cheesecake

Cheesecake is one of the best cakes you can have on a keto diet. 

Made with cream cheese and eggs and very little flour, you don’t need to alter a cheesecake recipe much to make it keto-friendly.

In this strawberry cheesecake recipe, all you’ll need is to switch to monk fruit sugar, and voila! 

2. Chocolate Keto Cake 

To me, no birthday party is complete without chocolate cake. So, this one’s for all my fellow chocoholics!

If you’ve never tried flourless chocolate cake before, you’re in for a treat. Even if you’re not on keto, I still highly recommend it.

The absence of flour makes it extra fudgy and indulgent. It’s sort of like a brownie, but in cake form and with frosting. Yum!

3. Keto Mocha Chocolate Cake

Love coffee and chocolate? Then you’ll absolutely adore this keto mocha cake.

As always, the coffee enhances the flavor of the chocolate, making it super rich and tasty.

Plus, it calls for ingredients like almond flour, keto sweetener, coconut milk, and sugar-free chocolate chips.

So you can indulge in a big old slice without disrupting your body’s ketosis.

4. Keto Coffee Cake

If you’re a dessert-for-breakfast kind of person, this keto coffee cake is a must-make.

It’s a fluffy cake filled with a delightful cinnamon streusel and frosted with a simple sugar glaze. Does it get any better?

Pair this with your favorite coffee for the ultimate morning treat.

5. Keto Sour Cream Pound Cake

I am such a fan of bundt cakes. That rustic ring shape is just effortlessly beautiful.

And this pound cake is as delicious as it is charming. 

What makes me love this pound cake even more is its simple yet satisfying taste and texture.

This cake is dense yet very moist and tender. And it has just the right amount of sweetness – not too much, not too little.

It definitely passes the Goldilocks standard.

6. Sugar-Free, Low-Carb Chocolate Hazelnut Cake 

Chocolate and hazelnut are a match made in heaven, and this cake is proof!

Made with ground hazelnuts and sugar-free chocolate, it’s dense and tender with the perfect combination of nutty and chocolatey flavors. 

The cake alone is fantastic, but it doesn’t end there.

To finish it off, add some dreamy keto chocolate mousse and fresh berries on top!

7. Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Cake (Keto AND Vegan!)

Zucchini isn’t only great for salads and appetizers! It’s a wonderful ingredient in cakes, as well.

But don’t worry – you won’t taste the veg. Instead, it’s 100% chocolatey greatness.

Just like carrot cake, this baby is outrageously moist and fudgy! One bite, and you’ll be hooked.

8. Keto Caramel Cake 

Tender and moist almond vanilla cake covered with a decadent caramel glaze…you can’t beat this level of perfection.

Sure, the caramel glaze is sugar-free, but that doesn’t mean it’s not delicious.

Made with keto-friendly sugars, xanthan gum, and sea salt, it’s smooth, creamy, and tastes just like real caramel.

Don’t tell anyone, and I bet they won’t even know the difference!

9. Keto Red Velvet Cake

With three layers of red velvet cake AND cream cheese frosting, this dessert is a show-stopper.

Regular red velvet combines the flavors of chocolate and vanilla. This keto version adds another layer of flavor from almond flour. 

In my opinion, this flour replacement makes the cake even more phenomenal.

10. Keto Chocolate Sour Cream Cake

If you’ve ever made banana bread, you’ll know that sour cream is an essential ingredient.

It brings so much moisture to the crumb, making it insanely rich and tender. And this chocolate cake is no exception.

It’s pure, unadulterated chocolate flavor with a wonderfully fudgy texture. Get ready to fall in love because this keto cake is impossible to resist.

11. Keto Vanilla Pound Cake 

Some people find vanilla cakes a little lackluster. But there’s nothing boring about this pound cake!

It looks magnificent in its simplicity, and the white glaze on top is the perfect finishing touch.

More importantly, it’s moist, tender, and tasty.

The almond flour and coconut flour lend their nutty flavors to make this cake uniquely delicious. 

12. Keto Birthday Cake (Vanilla Cake!)

Here’s another vanilla cake with a simple yet satisfying flavor.

It’s a fluffy almond and coconut cake that’s filled and frosted with cream cheese icing and garnished with rainbow sprinkles.

It’s ideal for birthdays, but the recipe is simple enough to make any day.

13. Keto Chocolate Mousse Cake

Can’t decide between cake and mousse? Just make them both!

This dessert has a delectable chocolate cream cheese cake at the bottom and a lighter-than-air chocolate cream cheese mousse on top.

The fact that it’s delicious is a given.

What’s surprising, though, is how quick it is to make – just 40 minutes and you’re done.

14. Keto Caramel Mud Cake 

This next dessert is a rich caramel cake infused with white chocolate ganache. It’s the best choice if you’ve got a serious sweet tooth.

And for those who are afraid the combination of caramel and white chocolate will make it way too rich, relax.

It’s balanced and, unbelievably, sugar-free.

15. Keto Lemon Pound Cake

This pound cake is buttery, moist, and bursting with a bright lemon flavor.

The batter itself is made from coconut flour and almond flour, adding a hint of nuttiness to the crumb.

It’s then drizzled with a decadent lemon glaze for the perfect, tangy finish.

16. Almond Flour Keto Lemon Cake

This is another lemon cake that’s just as scrumptious as the last.

Infused with sour cream, it’s incredibly moist with a delightfully tender crumb. 

You’ll fill and frost it with lemon buttercream, making it beautiful, flavorful, and perfect for any occasion.

17. Keto Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake

This lemon and poppy seed pound cake is out of this world! 

Besides the usual buttery and lemony flavors, there’s also a lovely nutty crunch from the poppy seeds.

Pro-tip: toast the poppy seeds on the stovetop for 2-3 minutes to bring out the flavor even more.

18. Keto Almond Ricotta Cake

Flavored with almonds and ricotta, this cake is wonderfully light and delicious.

Where other cakes are rich and indulgent, this one is delicate and airy. It’s infused with ricotta, which gives it an incredibly creamy crumb.

Top it with almond slivers for crunch. Then add a light dusting of sugar-free powdered sugar right before you serve for a pleasant rustic look.

19. Earthquake Cake

Chocolate cake with swirls of cheesecake, chocolate chips, pecans, and coconut? Sign me up!

This earthquake cake is earth-shatteringly delicious! 

The chocolate cake is soft and tender, while the cheesecake is smooth and creamy.

But there’s also terrific texture which rounds the whole thing out perfectly.

20. Chocolate Cake with Peppermint Frosting

If you like the pairing of chocolate and peppermint, you’ll go nuts for this next recipe.

The fudgy chocolate cake is filled and frosted with peppermint buttercream. Plus, you’ll add crushed sugar-free peppermint candy for crunch and color.

It’s shocking how something this decadent can also be sugar-free and keto-friendly!

21. Keto Mint Chocolate Cake (Dairy-Free!)

Here’s another dessert that combines the goodness of chocolate and mint, and it’s just as fantastic as the one above.

Both the cake and the frosting are infused with chocolate mint. That means every inch of this dessert bursts with rich and refreshing flavors.

22. Italian Cream Chaffle Cake

In case you’re not familiar, a chaffle is a delicious layer cake made of waffles. The term is a fun mash-up of cake and waffle.

For this chaffle, both waffle batter and frosting are infused with cream cheese.

It gives the whole thing a creamy mouthfeel and a mildly tart flavor. Delish!

23. Keto Pumpkin Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting {Gluten-Free Recipe} 

If you’re looking for a celebration-worthy dessert for Thanksgiving, this pumpkin spice cake is the answer.

This crumb is light and tender. Meanwhile, the sweet pumpkin mixed with spices gives it the perfect fall flavor.

It’s finished with cream cheese and cinnamon buttercream that provides a beautiful complement to the sweet and spiced flavors of the cake. 

24. Keto Pumpkin Cake

Here’s another pumpkin cake your fall-loving heart will definitely enjoy. 

The pumpkin puree makes this cake flavorful and moist. Together with the cream cheese frosting on top, it’s the perfect mix of sweet and tart.

Pro-tip: for an element of crunch, top the cake with toasted pecans. And a drizzle of sugar-free caramel wouldn’t hurt either.

25. Keto Orange Pound Cake

This pound cake is moist, buttery, and downright heavenly.

Infused with orange juice and zest, the bright citrus flavor is undeniable.

It’s even topped with an orange glaze filled with orange zest, too! How amazing does that sound?

26. Glazed Blood Orange Rum Cake 

Here’s another cake that’s wonderfully tender, fluffy, and bursting with orange flavor.

This one is also infused with rum, which doesn’t just make it boozy, but super flavorful too.

The taste of rum complements the oranges beautifully. 

The cake is bathed with a blood-orange glaze for a sweet and rustic finish.

27. Keto Rhubarb Coffee Cake

This is a 3-layer dessert that features a vanilla cake, rhubarb filling, and a sensational cinnamon streusel on top.

Wow!

It’s like eating three desserts in one cake! Serve it with coffee or tea for a fantastic morning or afternoon snack.

Best of all, while it seems like a complicated recipe, it actually only takes 10 minutes of prep.

28. Cream Cheese Pound Cake | Keto Pound Cake

This cake is infused with butter, cream cheese, and sour cream. Can’t you just taste its insane richness already?

It’s so flavorful it doesn’t even need any kind of glaze or frosting to complete it. Just pair it with coffee or tea, and you’re all set.

29. Mini Keto Ding Dong Cake

This cake is as fun as it sounds!

For the non-versed, a Ding Dong cake is a chocolate cake with a delightful cream filling.

This one is even frosted with chocolate ganache for an added layer of decadence.

30. Keto Kentucky Butter Cake

The thought of a low-carb, keto-friendly Kentucky butter cake may seem impossible, but it’s not. And all you’ll need is this recipe.

Made with wholesome ingredients such as almond flour, coconut flour, egg white protein, and low-calorie sweetener, this cake is surprisingly scrumptious!

It’s just as rich and buttery as a traditional Kentucky butter cake. The only difference is you can eat it without guilt.

31. Keto Birthday Cake with Chocolate Frosting

This is a fluffy almond butter cake filled and frosted with chocolate ganache. Yum!

While there’s nothing new about this dessert, it also won’t disappoint. After all, who doesn’t like yellow cake and chocolate?

32. Keto Lemon Magic Custard Cake – Low Carb

These squares are soft and moist like custard. Their sweet and tart lemon flavor is absolutely on point.

That said, they are pretty tart. So I like to dust them with sugar-free powdered sugar for an extra layer of sweetness.

33. Keto Death by Chocolate Cake

Ending this compilation with a bang is this sensational death by chocolate keto cake.

It’s three layers of moist chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate chips on top. 

It’s chocolate on chocolate on chocolate, and it’ll blow you away.
