How to make Keto Coffee Cake – Step By Step Photos

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch round cake pan with parchment paper and coat it in cooking spray to prevent sticking.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 1 cup of almond flour and 2 teaspoons of baking powder.

In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup sour cream, 2 eggs, 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract and 1/2 cup granular Swerve.

Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients and mix well. Let the batter rest for 15 minutes before pouring into the prepared cake pan.

In a food processor mix 2/3 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 2 tablespoons Brown Swerve, 1 tablespoon granular Swerve, 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons cold butter. Pulse until crumbly…about the texture of wet sand.

Sprinkle the crumbly topping over the cake batter and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean and the edges are dark golden brown. Cool for at least 30 minutes before attempting to lift the cake from the pan. Removing it too quickly will cause the cake to break.
