This Keto Pumpkin Spice Cake with cream cheese frosting is perfect for fall!
Have you hopped on the pumpkin everything train yet? I feel like once September hits everything that can be flavored with pumpkin is. Don’t get me wrong, we’re huge fans of pumpkin over here! Today we’re sharing this delicious Keto Pumpkin Spice Cake in partnership with Pacific Foods using their Unsweetened Hemp Beverage.
We love incorporating hemp into our diet as it’s rich in Omega 3 and 6 and essential amino acids and adds a dairy-free creamy texture to the cake. Yes, this cake does have a cream cheese icing but it’s easily made dairy-free by swapping out the cream cheese for a vegan cream cheese.
Let’s get to a few key questions and answers about this cake:
Can I use a normal baking dish?
Yes! If you’d like you can use a 10″ cake pan or a 9×9 baking dish. Just be sure to grease any pan you do use really well or line the bottom with parchment.
When cutting the cake it comes out in the cleanest slices if you cool completely before cutting. I like to pop the cake in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour to help firm it up and create perfect slices.
Is pumpkin keto-friendly?
Yes! You can definitely include pumpkin in a keto diet. 1 cup of pureed pumpkin contains 12 net carbs.
Can I sub coconut flour from almond flour?
No, please don’t. Coconut flour works completely different in recipes than almond flour. You would need completely different rations of eggs, pumpkin, and hemp beverage to use coconut flour.
Are there any ways to customize this Pumpkin Spice Cake?
Isn’t that the most fun part of cooking? Of course, there is. Here are a few of our favorite ideas:
add chocolate chips
swap out the cream cheese frosting for chocolate icing
make a brown sugar (erythritol) buttercream icing
