Delicious, moist low carb red velvet cake that is absolutely a must try. Get the great taste of red velvet cake without all the carbs. Gluten free option!
My birthday was a couple weeks ago and since I love ice cream cakes, my family got me a Cold Stone birthday cake which is a combination of red velvet cake and birthday cake ice cream. It was not low carb, but I’ve been in maintenance so long, I don’t think twice about splurging to celebrate special occasions. I try not to overdo any high carb treats, but it can be difficult once you cheat.
Unfortunately, I went a little overboard during my birthday week. To get back on track after a couple weeks of higher carb eating, I wanted to try baking a low carb red velvet cake. A lot of eggs are required when using all coconut flour, so I chose to use a blend of half Carbquik and half coconut flour. That way, I could reduce the amount of eggs by half. However, you may want to substitute almond flour or a low carb gluten free baking mix in place of the Carbquik. Neither almond flour or low carb baking mix will require the extra eggs that coconut flour requires.
The result was a cake that tasted very close to a regular high carb one. Next time, I may double the recipe to make a regular two layer cake. Chopped pecans would also be a nice addition to sprinkle on top. This time I kept it simple because I wasn’t sure how it was going to come out. The holidays are the perfect time to make a low carb red velvet cake.
