Keto Macadamia Chocolate Cake

Updated: Jul 29, 2020


I am hell bent on eliminating all the excuses you can give for going off Keto and on this journey, I discovered that you can enjoy special occasions in a better way when you are on Keto rather than not. Keto recipes are far more decadent, flavorful and to top it all, they leave you satisfied rather than wanting for more :D

As a result, I decided to celebrate a Keto friendly Birthday this year and this Keto Macadamia nuts cake was the highlight of my day :D (food wise :-P).

It was super easy to make and I enjoyed it for the next 3 days as well :-P. This Keto friendly Macadamia nuts cake is so rich and heavy that it will leave no room for dissatisfaction. You can enjoy it for long by refrigerating and it will last for up to 4 days! I like it best when warm so I cut the slice, put it on a microwave safe plate and microwave for 10-15 secs, Yummy!


The cake itself is so rich and flavorful that you can even skip the ganache but I wanted make it for my Birthday so decorations were a must!


The recipe for the cake is so simple, just mix all the ingredients together well and pop it in the oven to bake. Even the chocolate ganache is pretty simple to make and use.

For the chocolate ganache, use Keto friendly Chocolate (I used home made), add whipping cream to it, mix it well and pop it in the fridge for few minutes. Once the cake has cooled down and ready to decorate, take out the ganache from fridge and whip whip whip. The more you whip, the lighter it will get in color and texture. Once the ganache is at desired consistency, cover the cake with it!


You can keep the left over ganache(if any) to lick off later :-P
