Add extra flavor and superfoods

Create a decant chocolate layer of this bundt cake with hints of cinnamon and turmeric by adding a scoop of Cacao Bliss. I partnered with Earth Echo for this recipe and used their Cacao Bliss to amplify the chocolate layer with a unique spice blend of superfoods. Cacao Bliss is a raw cacao powder that contains superfoods like turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon, lucuma and Himalayan salt.

I like to use Cacao Bliss in my recipes as a substitute or in addition to cocoa powder. It adds a special flavor to chocolate baked goods and I get the healthy benefits from the superfoods.

Other toppings and add-ins

Topping this keto marble bundt cake with cream cheese frosting and crushed nuts created a stunning presentation plus cream cheese pairs perfectly with pumpkin cake. Here are some other ideas you could add to the top of your cake or inside your cake.

Optional ingredients to add in:

  • Chocolate chips: For additional chocolate, sprinkle in 1 cup of chocolate chips into the pumpkin layer or both layers of your marbled cake.
  • Nuts: Chopped pecans, almonds or walnuts add additional nutty flavor and crunch to your pumpkin cake.

 

Topping variations:

  • Powdered sugar-free sweetener: Dust the bundt cake with a thin amount of powdered sweetener for a simple presentation.
  • Sugar free glaze: Make a simple glaze without the cream cheese by adding an additional 2 tablespoons of butter and use extra nut milk or heavy cream to thin out the glaze if needed.
  • Chocolate ganache: Melt chocolate with a teaspoon of butter or coconut oil. Then pour over the top of the low carb bundt cake.
  • Coconut chips: Sprinkle unsweetened coconut flakes on top of the glaze for a hint of coconut flavor and crunch.

Oat fiber in keto baking

Oat fiber is added to the recipe to create a bakery style cake texture and to help absorb moisture from the eggs.

Oat fiber is a zero carb keto flour used in conjunction with almond flour to improve the texture of baked goods. It comes from the husks of oats and is not the same thing as oat flour (which is finely ground oats).

Storage information

Store the keto bundt cake in refrigerator if making this ahead of time. Wrap (unfrosted) in plastic wrap to prevent moisture loss.

The frosting can be made up ahead of time and stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator. Before serving the cake, let the cream cheese glaze sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before drizzling down the cake.

This cake can be frozen although the texture and flavor may vary. To freeze, wrap the unfrosted cake in plastic wrap and store in a freezer safe bag or wrapped in aluminum foil.

  1. Is there a gluten free alternative to the oat fiber? One article I read suggested quinoa flakes. Not sure how that would work, though.

    1. Oat fiber is naturally gluten free since oats are not wheat. The brand I linked to doesn’t state that it’s gluten free but there are others that do state this on the package.
