How To Make Sugar Free Red Velvet Cake – Ingredients

 

Sugar Free Cake Ingredients

 

Sugar Free Frosting Ingredients

  • 12 oz blocks of cream cheese (16 oz total)
  • 1/2 cup Pyure Organic All-Purpose Blend
  • 2 tsp. Clear vanilla
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream


 

How To Make Sugar Free Red Velvet Cake – Instructions

Mix all liquid ingredients with the Pyure Sweetener. (Eggs, melted butter, heavy cream, MCT oil, Clear Vanilla, and Red Food Coloring)

Then add the rest of the dry ingredients to the wet mixture above (Almond flour, Coconut Flour, pink salt, baking powder, Guar gum, baking soda, and the Dutch-Processed cocoa powder)

Grease the cake pans.  No need to add flour if you have a nonstick pan you are using.

Divide between 2 cake pans size 6 x 2 inches.  I prefer two of these 6-inch nonstick cake pans found here on Amazon!  My cakes always come out perfect when I use them!

Bake 350 for 30 minutes covered with tin foil on the middle rack.

Poke the cake with a knife and if the knife comes out clean, the cake is done.  If not, bake it for another 5 minutes until it’s ready.

Allow the cake to completely cool before you frost it.

Then make the frosting by adding all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, then using a mixer to blend it until smooth.  TIP:  make sure the cream cheese is room temperature so it blends easier.

The nutrition label includes the cake and the frosting in total carbs.

Here are some questions I get asked all the time about this Sugar Free Red Velvet Cake recipe:

 

Is this Sugar Free Red Velvet Cake for Diabetics?

Yes, anytime you can reduce the amount of sugar in your diet, it will help improve your health.  In fact, I know many people who are able to reduce their insulin and improve their A1C by doing the keto diet that includes sugar free cake recipes like this!

 

Is there a Sugar Free Cake Mix I can buy?

No, I don’t believe there is.  If there was, it would probably have the sugar free substitutes that are not keto friendly anyway.

 

How to Make Sugar Free Red Velvet Cake?

This recipe is exactly the answer to this question!  It took a lot of research and testing to come up with the perfect blend of keto ingredients to get it just right!  I’m extremely proud of this recipe!

 

Is this an Easy Sugar Free Red Velvet Cake Recipe?

Yes, gosh yes!  I would say this recipe is more forgiving than most cake recipes meaning you can don’t have to get the measurements just right for it to fail.  It comes out perfect every single time I make it!  You are really going to enjoy it.

 

Do I have to use Dutch Process Cocoa in this recipe?

The Dutch process cocoa is less acidic and works perfectly in this recipe.  It also pairs well with the food coloring to get the perfect Red Velvet color for this recipe.

 

Do I have to use food coloring in this recipe?

In short, the answer is no.  If you prefer to leave the food coloring out, you will still get a wonderful tasting chocolate flavored cake!  I rarely use food coloring except for special occasions.

 

Can I replace the food coloring with a different ingredient?

Back in the day, the red velvet cakes were made with beets to get the color.  That is a bit more difficult because it would require you to add vinegar to the recipe and I have not tested that method yet.  I’m not even sure I want to.  If you are worried about the red food coloring, I would just leave it out.  The cake will still be amazing!

 

Will everyone fall in love this Sugar Free Red Velvet Cake Recipe?

Well, this is a tough question because not everyone likes everything.  I will say that if you are doing the keto diet and you want the BEST Red Velvet Cake Recipe, this is for you!

 

Does this recipe have refined sugars in it?

No, this recipe uses a sugar free keto friendly sweetener called Pyure Organic All-Purpose Blend!  It’s one of my favorite sweeteners.  You only need a 1/2 cup of Pyure for a full cup of sugar in a recipe!  You can see the Pyrue to Sugar conversion chart here.

 

What is the name of the food coloring you use to make it that perfect Red Velvet color?

I use Americolor Super Red!  This color mixed with the amount of Dutch-processed cocoa in this recipe gives it the perfect color every time!  I have found that using Wilton colors are not strong enough and you won’t achieve the deep red color you want.

 

What size cake pans did you use?

I used 2 cake pans that were 6 inches by 2 inches to make a double layered cake.  You can use one round 9 inch cake pan or a bundt pan also but the cake won’t stand as tall.

  1. I have not been able to find the directions for the frosting.
    Is the nutritional information for the frosting included at the bottom of the recipe?

    1. Oops! So sorry. I was so excited to share this with people that were waiting for it that I missed that step. I updated the recipe. Yes, the frosting and the cake are included in the nutrients.

  2. 5 stars
    This cake was super easy to make and delicious! My husband who’s hasn’t had cake in 28 years had a few pieces because it didn’t contain sugar or artificial sweeteners . Happy birthday to me ?

  3. 4 stars
    So amazing!! I used flax ‘slurry’ in place of guar gum & half of the sugar throughout – there is a distinctive coconut flavor, which is the only reason they didn’t get a 5th star. I love coconut, but my diabetic hubby isn’ta huge fan. Regardless, these rock!!!
