Low Carb Italian Cream Cake

Keto Recipes

This is a classic cake recipe. The finished cake is a work of art but is not as easy to make as most low carb cakes. There are a lot more steps involved than in most cakes.

All the steps it takes to make the cake are important for the finished cake. Your friends and family might not appreciate the work it took to make the cake but they will definitely appreciate the cake.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line the bottom of two 9inch cake pans with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, Stir together the flours, coconut, pecans, baking powder and salt. Put aside.
  3. Cream the butter and sweetener together until light and fluffy.
  4. Separate the eggs. Beat the egg yolks one at time into the butter mixture. Mix well between each addition. Add the vanilla and heavy cream mixing well.
  5. Mix the dry ingredients into the batter until combined.
  6. In another bowl, whip the egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the rest of the batter.( Make sure to fold gently to keep the batter light.)
  7. Pour the batter evenly into the two pans. Bake in the preheated oven 35-40 minutes until the edges are golden and the center is firm.
  8. Let cool completely in the pans. Remove from the pans and leave on wire racks.
  9. (Frosting) Cream the butter and cream cheese together beating until fluffy. Add the sweetener and vanilla and continue beating. Next add the heavy cream slowly until desired consistency is reached.(More or less cream can be added depending on desired spreading consistency )
  10. Spread the bottom layer with frosting then apply frosting to the top layer. Spread remaining frosting around the sides.
  11. Lightly toast the chopped pecans. Sprinkle the toasted pecans and toasted coconut on the top layer to finish.
