Low Carb Pumpkin Cake
I know, I know – it is not exactly pumpkin season, but do not worry – nowadays pumpkins and squashes are available almost throughout the whole year.
If not, feel free to pin this recipe to your Thanksgiving Pinterest board and come back to it later during the fall! 🙂
Now, developing a low carb cake is not an easy task, right? Well, after removing almost all the carbs, there are limited ingredients we can work with.
Fortunately, pumpkin is one of those versatile healthy fruits that can work wonderfully in both sweet and savory dishes which are totally keto-friendly.
For our low carb recipe today we will be using the help of erythritol, although I believe the recipe can perfectly go without it, if you combine this yummy low carb pumpkin cake with lots of keto-friendly fruits, such as raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, etc.
Thankfully, the spring season and early summer are packed with these healthy and nutritious berries!
Also, I have added plenty of fiber from the indispensable coconut. We can’t have a keto diet without coconuts, am I right? 😉
Another key component is the sour cream. I always try to include this ingredient in my keto recipes because it a wonderful LCHF-compatible food with lots of healthy fats and beneficial probiotics which improve our immunity and promote healthy weight-loss. You can read more about the magic of probiotics right about here:
(Yes, I need to update that booklet pretty soon, but darn it – the work load never stops! 😀 ) By the way, I am in the final stages of developing my book on healthy weight-loss using the keto diet (and its liberal variations) So, if you decide to subscribe to my newsletter, you will be among the first folks who can garb their copy on Amazon! I am super excited! So stay tuned!
Oh, and one more thing to note – I am using Bulgarian sour cream with its specific Bulgarian bacterial culture which is absolutely amazing in “eating” most of the lactose and the end product is perfectly keto-friendly. I am seriously thinking of posting a recipe for homemade Bulgarian sour cream which you can easily make at home wherever you may live around the world with the help of my favorite yogurt starter!
