Sugar Free Chocolate Chips
To make the chocolate glaze on top we use sugar-free chocolate chips. The brand of keto approved chocolate chips that I love to use in my recipes are by ChocZero
. These chocolate baking chips are not only sugar-free but sugar alcohol free too! They melt easily in the microwave. However, if you don’t want to use a microwave to melt these chips, you can use the double boiler method
.The coconut oil in the keto chocolate frosting is used to create that beautiful chocolate sheen on top of the cake.
The Benefits of Portion Control
The benefit of making a small keto chocolate cake like this recipe is that you don’t have to worry that you may eat more cake than is allowed in your macros. When it comes to keto desserts, it is easy to get carried away and eat too much. Usually when you get a craving or a sweet tooth, you just need a little something sweet to satisfy that urge and you want it NOW! You can make a keto chocolate cake like this one when those craving come up.
Line Your Ramekin with Parchment Paper
Although you can simply dig your fork into the cake while it is still in the ramekin, but if you want to create a beautiful presentation, you can pull the cake out of the ramekin. Since this cake is very moist, it may be difficult to slide the cake out of the pan even if you greased it because it sticks to the sides.
To prevent the cake from sticking and to make it easy to remove the cake from the ramekin cake pan, line the ramekin with a strip of parchment paper around the sides before you add the keto cake batter. You can also do a little circle of parchement paper on the bottom but this isn’t necessary.
How to Cook a Keto Chocolate Cake in the Oven
If you don’t want to use a microwave or don’t own a microwave, you can bake this keto chocolate cake in the oven. Place the ramekin on the middle rack of the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 4-6 minutes.
