If you love anything lemony, this keto lemon cake is the perfect choice. So soft, moist, flavorful and delicious. And the lemon buttercream frosting gives it a nice finishing touch.

Most of you would know that I love to use coconut flour for my keto cake recipes as it’s cheaper and way lower in carbs. If you’re not a fan of coconut, don’t worry as it is masked by the lemon taste. If you are a fan of almond flour, I have provided the option at the full written recipe.

This lemon cake is so easy and quick to make. The frosting is also very simple and you can just whisk it manually without using any tools. I am hopeless at frosting cake so this is a very easy way to frost it without needing any skills.

Baking Powder = 8 g / 2 tsp (Single acting)
Baking Soda = 2 g / 1/2 tsp
Erythritol or any keto friendly sweetener = 40 g (This amount is very low so that it balances out with the sweetness of the frosting. If you are omitting the frosting, then you need to increase the sweetener for the batter from 80 to 100 g)
Salt = 1/2 to 1 tsp

1. Preheat the oven at 350 F or 180 C.
2. In a bowl, add all the wet ingredients and whisk until well combined.
3. In a separate bowl, add all the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
4. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth and thick.
5. Pour the batter into a greased pan lined with parchment paper. In the video, I used a 7 inch or 17.8 cm square pan.
