  2. Grease the bundt pan with butter or line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  3. Melt the butter together with the spices on low heat. Allow to cool.
  4. In a larger bowl, beat eggs, sweetener and vanilla really fluffy with a hand mixer. Stir in cream cheese.
  5. Mix almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt separately to remove any clumps.

Tips

Decorate with "candied" chopped almonds or nuts. Melt 1-2 tablespoons of sweetener in a frying pan over medium-high heat and add ¼ cup (1/2 dl) roughly chopped almonds or nuts. Combine well and allow to cool.

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    A good cake with lovely texture and very easy. I just guess to make it a Gingerbread you add some ginger!

    This is a beautiful cake.

    I made this with different flavouring as ginger and pumpkin pie spice are not my thing. I flavoured it with the zest and juice from 1 lemon, 1tsp of Sicilian lemon extract and 1tsp ground cardamom - it's amazing. Fantastic served with creme fraiche.

    I made this as a loaf tonight and it turned out beautiful. It was light and fluffy and rose very high unlike other loaves I have made in the past. Next time I may add some dark chocolate chips for a little variety. I was extremely impressed with this recipe.

    I found this to be dry and sandy, savory and not sweet, and despite the 2T of pumpkin pie spice/ginger, it had very little flavor. Granted, I had to use sour cream in place of cream cheese, which might have made it a little drier. Even so, the flavor did little to make up for the texture. It's so disappointing to invest this much in ingredients for something that ends up rather "meh" :-(

    If you substitute monkfruit for the erythritol, how much would you use and would it matter? That's all I have on hand and this cake looks wonderful. Thank you.

    Made this today (without sweetener and just used Allspice and Ginger). So delicious! Lovely soft texture and beautiful Christmassy scent. Great cake!

    As far as I know you can make substitutes re sweeteners but I just avoid them altogether. Going Keto 13 weeks ago has totally eliminated all sugar cravings for me and reluctant to do the artificial sweetener thing. However I know many people use them and are happy with them.

    Hi! Which ingredients did you replace to add in the lemon, etc.? Do you think it would be good if I followed the same recipe above but also added in the lemon zest?

    Food safety question! Does anyone know how long this cake lasts? I made an extra December 23rd. Half in fridge and half in freezer. Safe to eat for a few days yes?

    Traditional food safety rules still apply to these recipes. 3-5 days in the refrigerator and 2-3 months in the freezer.

    Many thanks Kristin ☺

    This was a delicious cake. Changed nothing and will definitely make again. I think I might try Jelena’s suggestion (comment #3) sometime though by switching out the spices for lemon. Another winner! Thanks Diet Doctor :)

    Just wondered why I have a ‘comment reported’ against my comment number. Have I broken rules?
