Buttery keto yellow cake with fudgey chocolate frosting is just like a boxed mix but sugar free, gluten free, and only 1.4 net carbs per piece!
Of all of the recipes on my blog this keto yellow cake is probably my second favorite! It tastes just like a “regular” cake and comes out perfect every time!
I even used it for my youngest’s first birthday cake. I was actually pregnant with her when I originally wrote this post! Awww, right?!
If you’re looking for a legit keto golden butter cake with fudgey keto chocolate frosting, I implore you to try this one! You will not be disappointed!
I have had a major sweet tooth lately. Give me all the cake, cookies, pies, candy. I don’t know what has gotten into me. Oh wait, I’m pregnant! Ha! Lucky for you, and me too, that sweet craving resulted in the most delicious keto yellow cake with chocolate frosting!
When I was recipe testing for my Triple Berry Muffins, one attempt came out very cake-like. It wasn’t quite muffin-y but it also wasn’t cupcake-y.
Highly technical stuff here.
But, it was on the right track to being cake so it got my wheels turning. What evolved out of that recipe fail was this buttery golden keto cake.
If you miss regular ‘ol yellow cake with chocolate icing, then you’re going to LOOOOVE this recipe! It’s the perfect base for birthday cakes, cupcakes, mix-ins, etc.
I know people hate the word, but, this keto cake is so moist! All of that butter guarantees this cake isn’t eggy or dry, promise.
It certainly doesn’t taste “healthy”. In fact, my 6 year old thought I’d made a boxed cake.
Best of all, there aren’t any special products in this low carb butter cake recipe. You only need 6 basic ingredients to whip up this one up.
I’ve made this keto yellow cake into a sheet cake with a 9×13 pan, cupcakes, and as a layer cake. If you’re using this recipe as a birthday cake, double it and make a giant layer cake!
OR you could make it in a bundt pan and use it for pound cake! I have used this recipe each way and let me just say, it never disappoints!
Oh, and the frosting…we haven’t even talked about the frosting yet!
Remember the canned fudge frosting? Yeah, this sugar free frosting tastes just like that! If I’m lyin’, I’m dying’ y’all.
It’s thick, rich, and extremely chocolatey! And just like the cake, the ingredients are few and basic.
This keto chocolate frosting is so good, I may or may not have eaten it with a spoon…
No matter the occasion, your family will love this classic yellow keto butter cake with keto chocolate frosting!
