In fact, this sugar free cake only requires 4 ingredients - keto cookies, heavy cream, sugar free chocolate chips, and coconut oil. It can be made in 2 minutes from start to finish. And it’s portion controlled because you are making 1-2 servings.

This cake is pretty moist when you slice into it. It reminds me of a lava cake because it’s warm and slightly melted on the insdie.

Keto Cookies

The main ingredient for this keto cake are cookies. So I guess you could call this a keto cookie cake! The cookies used in this recipe are some of my favorite keto cookies by Perfect Keto. Their cookies are made with clean ingredients like almonds, allulose, grass-fed butter, and coconut oil.

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. pulling a keto mug cake out of the oven with a white towel
