You’ll never believe how easy it is to make this crock pot keto lemon cake dessert! The low carb cake is absolutely delicious served warm with whipped cream and berries. It’s also great eaten cold straight from the refrigerator.
Most crockpot recipes are for dishes like shredded meat, pot roasts, chilis, or stews. But did you know that you can make a cake in a crock pot?
Just like other crock pot recipes, the benefit is that it’s so convenient! After all, slow cookers are considered the “set it and forget it” kitchen appliance. Just add your ingredients and walk away.
This crockpot keto lemon cake is just as easy. Plus, it’s absolutely delicious!
Honestly, this recipe may be the easiest way you could possibly bake a cake. You’ll mix the dry cake ingredients, whisk together the wet cake ingredients, then combine them and pour into the slow cooker.
Next, combine the topping ingredients in a bowl, then pour over the cake batter. Add the lid, cook for a few hours, and you’re done!
Slow cookers are more forgiving than cooking in the oven. That’s why this recipe is so convenient. Your cake will turn out moist and flavorful every time!
What do you need to bake a crockpot cake?
I’ve seen a lot of crock pot cake recipes that require baking pans and extra racks or inserts. If you don’t have a rack or insert, they suggest putting the baking pan on top of crumpled aluminum foil.
This lemon crock pot cake doesn’t require anything except the crock pot itself!
You don’t need a baking pan, a rack, or an insert. You’ll simply line the slow cooker with aluminum foil, then pour in the lemon cake and the topping.
I know I said this already, but this might be the easiest cake recipe out there!
How to make a cake in a crock pot
The next time you need an easy recipe for a delicious dessert, you’re only a few steps away from an amazing lemon crockpot cake!
Preparing the batter
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, baking powder, and xanthan gum.
- In a separate large bowl, whisk together melted butter, whipping cream, lemon juice, lemon zest, and egg until smooth.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until well-combined.
- Spread the batter into a 2-4 quart slow cooker. Line the crock with foil or other liner for easier release. Pour sweetened lemon mixture on top
- Cover the crock pot and cook on high for about 2-3 hours.
The cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Then, you’re ready to serve!
Serving the keto crockpot dessert
Once your low carb lemon cake is ready, you can serve it warm from the crock pot. I like to top mine with fresh fruit and whipped cream.
You can also store your cake in the refrigerator for later, which I highly recommend.
I’m not sure why, but cakes made with almond and coconut flour always seem to taste better after being refrigerated overnight.
Once you’re ready to enjoy, you can reheat the lemon cake or eat it straight from the refrigerator. I actually prefer mine cold!
