I bet you can’t say “Cast Iron Keto Carrot Cake” five times fast, but that doesn’t make it any less delicious. In fact, I am usually not a fan of carrot cakes but this one really knocked my socks off and it was a piece of cake to make.

This is the perfect sweet treat, plus it is just in time for Easter. The traditional Easter menu is typically pretty keto friendly-ish.  Deviled Eggs are more often than not a safe bet. Honey Baked Hams are obviously loaded with sugar but most other protein sources should get the green light. Sides can be a great way to incorporate more healthy fats into the meal, I’d highly recommend these Garlic Butter Green Beans or these Garlic Butter Mushrooms. And last but not least, don't skip the dinner rolls, make them keto instead!!!

Now I know I’ll take some flack for posting a keto recipe with carrots, but this recipe is seriously too good not to share.  Yes, carrots are one of the higher carb veggies, but there are only a few carrots spread out over multiple servings. If you are worried a quarter of a carrot will kick you out of ketosis then, by all means, exclude the carrot. Without the carrot, you’ve got a great basic cake recipe that is delicious all by itself or a blank canvas to modify and experiment with different flavor combinations to create whatever your heart desires. As long as your heart’s desire is a cake related desire, but really whose isn’t?
