It's hard to come by a dense, moist cake on the keto diet, until now. We created this Cinnamon Ricotta Cake using a base of full fat ricotta cheese to ensure a moist outcome every time you make it! Make it for Sunday brunch, the next birthday party or the holidays, and it will never fail you.
The Perfect Keto Coffee Cake.
What I love most about this recipe, aside from it being nut-free, is that it's not overly sweet. While I love sweet, decadent desserts, this recipe is perfect for anytime of day. You can eat it with your keto coffee for breakfast, for an afternoon snack or for dessert after Thanksgiving dinner. It's versatile and can easily be tailored to your liking. Spruce it up with:
