Another reason coffee cakes can be dry is using the wrong type of flour. Be sure to use almond flour or another nut flour for this recipe so that your cake comes out moist and fluffy.

Can I make this coffee cake ahead of time?

This coffee cake is best enjoyed fresh, but you can make it ahead of time and store it in the fridge for a few days. The cake will get drier as it sits, so be sure to enjoy it within a few days for the best results.

Does coffee cake have coffee in it?

No, coffee cake does not have coffee in it. The name coffee cake comes from the fact that it is often enjoyed with coffee.

How do I store leftover coffee cake?

Leftover coffee cake can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. The cake will get drier as it sits though, so be sure to enjoy it within a few days for the best results.

What’s the difference between coffee cake and crumb cake?

Coffee cake is generally a little sweeter and has a streusel topping, while crumb cake has a heavier crumb topping. Both are equally delicious!

How to Make The Best Keto Friendly Coffee Cake

Step 1 – The Prep

Take two of the four eggs and separate whites from yolks. Next, beat two whole eggs with the remaining yolks in a large bowl. Leave 2 extra egg whites aside.

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare an 8’’ square baking tray with parchment paper. 

In a different bowl, make the cinnamon crumble. Mix all the ingredients until well combined. We’re looking for a moist but grainy consistency. If needed, add an extra tablespoon of almond flour.

Take the prepared baking tray and pour ½ of the cake batter. Then make a layer of cinnamon crumble on top of the batter, and extend it evenly. Follow the rest of the cake batter, and then add the remaining crumble.

Step 2 – Bake It

Bake this cake for 25-28 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick, comes out clean or with little lumps. Due to the almond flour and cinnamon crumble, a moist cake is desirable. Note: it’s better to have an undercooked cake than the opposite, as almond flour will be definitely baked when cold.

Step 3 – The Drizzle

Prepare the cream cheese glaze by mixing cream cheese with heavy cream and powdered erythritol. Adjust thickness and sweetness to taste.
