Low Carb Vanilla Birthday Cake

Print Friendly and PDF

It was my 25th birthday over the weekend, and of course birthdays call for cake! For the past several occasions I needed to bake a cake for I made a cake using my chocolate cupcake recipe, but this time around, I wanted to try something new. I've always been more of a vanilla person, so vanilla cake it was! 


1 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup granulated Swerve
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp monk fruit juice concentrate (Note: if you are using another sweetener instead of this one, you will likely need much more, as monk fruit is very sweet)
8 eggs
1 stick salted butter, melted
13.5oz (1 can) coconut milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cashew milk

3 sticks butter, softened
1.5 cups powdered Swerve
2 tsp monk fruit juice concentrate (Note: if you are using another sweetener instead of this one, you will likely need much more, as monk fruit is very sweet)
1 tbsp vanilla
Food coloring (optional)


1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

2) Mix together dry ingredients (coconut flour, almond flour, Swerve, baking powder, baking soda). Stir well.

3) Add in wet ingredients (ie the rest of them!). Stir well.

4) Spray two 8-in circular pans really well with coconut oil spray. (You can use other pans, of course, but will need to adjust cooking times).

5) Pour batter into pans.

6) Cook for around 45 minutes or until "bounces back" to touch. (Note: cake surfaces may get very dark from the cooking spray).

7) Remove from oven, and let cool in pans.

8) Once cool to touch, flip cakes onto a cooling rack.

9) Mix together all icing ingredients.

10) Once cake is entirely cool, ice and decorate cake.

11) Enjoy!
