This recipe came to me while I was driving home from work one day. I had been wanting to do a cake of sorts, but wasn’t exactly sure how to go about it. It wasn’t from research or testing out recipes that I stumbled upon this. I was actually scrolling through my Instagram feed and saw a couple cakes that led me to believe KetoConnect was destined to make the perfect keto cake. And, we did it. Our Protein Cakes are less than one net carb and taste like the real, damn deal. Watch me make them below!
The secret to this ultra low carb cake is the
Protein birthday Cake
We’ve created a chocolate protein cake for our chocolate lovers and a vanilla protein cake for our vanilla lovers! While Matt is more of a chocolate lover – making chocolate icing was his idea – I prefer the vanilla. But, you’re better off having one of each! A tip to making the frosting extra creamy and smooth is to ensure the butter is room temperature when you mix it. Not only will cold butter be harder to mix, but it will take longer and have a slightly different texture. However, if you want to omit the icing altogether I’d suggest adding a couple extra drops of Stevia to the cake batter for a sweeter cake, more like a birthday cake!
