Chocolate cake is universally known as one of the greatest sweet treats you can indulge in. And there’s no reason to miss out on all of that chocolatey goodness just because you’re following a low carb or keto diet. 

It’s now easier than ever to replicate delicious carb heavy treats in a keto friendly way and your air fryer makes it EVEN easier!

What ingredients do you need to make a keto chocolate cake?

  • Almond flour - I prefer a fine, blanched almond flour like Bob's Red Mill.
  • Sweetener - I've now made this recipe with both granular and powdered Swerve, allulose, and monkfruit. Take your pick, it'll be delicious!
  • Cocoa Powder - I used Hershey's Special Dark, but any variety will work just fine.
  • Baking Powder
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk - Make sure it's unsweetened if you're looking to avoid extra calories and carbs.
  • Eggs - This recipe calls for two large eggs.
  • Vanilla - I pretty much can't bake without vanilla extract. It adds a richness that I always appreciate.
  • Salt - Salt really brings out the flavor of the cocoa. If you omit it, you might feel like something's missing in the final product.

How much of this chocolate cake can I eat?

Do I have to use an air fryer?

Absolute not! To make this recipe in your oven, still bake it at 350°F, but adjust the time. Start at 15 minutes and keep checking on the cake until a toothpick entered into the center comes out clean. 

For this recipe I used mini bundt pans, but you can do everything from a six-inch round to a layer cake if you want to double the recipe!

With a mini Bundt cake pan, I could see how it may come out due to the volume of batter being spread out. It DOES NOT work in a six inch cake round.

It wasn't nearly done at 10 minutes. I agree that the next time I attempt this recipe, I will DEFINITELY use a standard oven. 10 minutes in an air fryer AFTER pre-heating was not nearly sufficient. A true disappointment.

Made this and it was so delicious! My family couldn't believe it was low carb. Had to leave in about 13 minutes. After 10 min it wasn't quite cooked thru enough.
