If you want to have your cake and eat it too, opt for a keto cake like this Chocolate Keto Cake or another one of my low carb cake recipes.

What Is Keto Cake Made Of?

The batter for Keto Chocolate Cake is made up of:

Most of these items you probably already have in your pantry if you are new to a low-carb or keto diet. You may have to invest in a couple of ingredients, and then you’ll be baking your favorite Keto desserts in no time!

How Do You Make Keto Chocolate Cake In The Instant Pot?

First, let me tell you WHY you need Instant Pot Cake recipes. The hot steam environment in a pressure cooker makes the lightest, fluffiest cakes you’ve ever had. They tend to be moister–and much though you might hate that word, you know you love the taste of light, tender, moist cakes!

When you’re making a low carb cake with almond flour or coconut flour, you want to use every trick in the book to get a light cake. So here’s how you make it.

  • Mix. Mix together all ingredients using a hand mixer, until the mixture is well-incorporated, and looks fluffy. This will keep the cake from being dense as almond flour cakes can sometimes be.
  • Pour. Grease a heat-proof pan that fits inside your Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker. Pour the cake batter into this pan. I used a 3-cup Bundt Pan.
  • Water. In the inner liner of your Instant Pot, place two cups of water, and a steamer rack. Place the foil-covered pot on the trivet.
  • Pressure Cook. Close the Instant Pot, and cook for 20 minutes under high pressure, and allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes. Release remaining pressure.

How Do You Make Keto Chocolate Cake In The Oven?

  • Pre-Heat. Grease an 8-inch cake pan. Turn oven to 350F.
  • Mix. Mix together all ingredients using a hand mixer, until the mixture is well-incorporated, and looks fluffy. This will keep the cake from being dense as almond flour cakes can sometimes be.
  • Bake. Pour into the greased pan and bake for 25-30 minutes until a knife inserted in the center of the Keto Chocolate Cake emerges clean.

This Cake Doesn’t Need Frosting?

This keto chocolate cake is very chocolaty, therefore, I don’t use icing. It really tastes quite rich on its own, but I’m sure a little whipped cream could only enhance your dessert. If the icing is non-negotiable, then try my Two-ingredient icing!

Tips and Tricks for this Keto Chocolate Cake:

  • Mix. Make sure to beat the batter very well so your cake is not heavy.
  • Frosting. The cake is sweet enough on its own, but you can use whipped cream for an additional indulgence. Or top with my Two-Ingredient Icing. 
  • Pan. Use a metal pan, but if you only have a glass one be sure it’s oven proof. Glass doesn’t conduct heat as well as metal does, so you may have to cook it longer. 
  • Note that you CAN NOT substitute coconut flour for almond flour! If you want a coconut flour recipe, use the one for this keto chocolate cake with coconut flour
