Low Carb Keto Carrot Cake

Low Carb Keto Carrot Cake

Aside from not being able to cook and eating take out or ordering from Grab Food, there was pizza last week. Yes, my dears break muna kami ni Keto because Twinkle got sick last week. Puyatan galore, pagod , and worries the whole day everyday — and so we had a bit of comfort food for stress eating.

This is how Twinkle looked and her fever was on and off.

peanutbutter and I was worried nga na baka Dengue. Thankfully hindi naman. And after two days pa lumabas yung real reason ng fever nya– coughs and colds! Kaya ngayon walang tahulan at singahan naman dito…

We are back on Keto because carry na ulit magluto… Of course, sweets and desserts comes first…

And so I am sharing with you this delicious Keto Carrot Cake recipe.

First, let me tell you that I’m not an expert in baking. I bake because I want to eat baked goodies and I have preferences as to the taste, sweetness, ingredients of these baked goodies that I want to eat.  I seldom bake whole cakes because I can ‘t make it pretty… LOL! It’s always delicious but I really can’t make it pretty…hahahuhu

Another reason why I don’t bake whole cakes is that, I want to slice it into four and call one quarter of the cake one serving…. heeheeeee

This Keto Carrot Cake divides into 12 servings, though and one slice has 6g carbs, not bad even if you’re on strict keto. You just have to plan your meals to make sure you stick to 20g of carbs for the whole day.

I’m leaving you the recipe below and a guarantee that this will satisfy your cravings!
