    What is a Dump Cake?

    A dump cake is exactly what the words describe; dumping all the ingredients into a pan and then baking it! It requires a lot less work and time to make than other cakes because the process does not include many steps. Despite them being so easy to make, dump cakes taste delicious and can be made with so many different flavors! Most typical dump cakes are made with canned, boxed cake mix or any other pre-made filling which would be very high in carbs and particularly, sugar, which would not be keto friendly.

    You could use a keto approved cake mix that our on the market but they might not taste as good as this keto dump cake recipe!

    Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Spread aka Keto Nutella

    There are very few keto approved Nutella-like spreads out there. Nutella is a well known brand of chocolate hazelnut spread. ChocZero is a great keto friendly alternative to Nutella and only has 1g net carbs per serving! Their spread is palm oil free and it is not made using soluble corn fiber, making it a great option for those concerned with rainforest depletion or corn allergies. However, the ChocZero chocolate hazelnut spread is made with fructooligosaccharide (FOS) which can cause stomach discomfort.

    Lakanto is another brand making a similar product. They make Suntella which is a chocolate sunflower spread. It doesn’t contain FOS but the spread is higher in carbs. Whichever chocolate hazelnut spread you choose really depends on how many of your daily carb limit you are willing to use up on this cake.


    This cake is best served fresh and warm, straight from the oven onto a plate, with a scoop of low carb ice cream or keto whipped cream. However, if you have any cake leftover, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. The texture might change a bit, but it will still taste delicious, especially if it is warmed up again!
