Keto Poke Cake

I was going to save this for 4th of July but with it falling on a weekday I figured some of you may be interested in making this for the weekend BBQs! This is an absolutely decedent dessert and great for special occasions!

Keto4Karboholic’s Patriotic Poke Cake

16 Servings

1 Slice: 448 Calories, 42g Fat, 3g Carbs, 11g Protein

Cake

1 cup Swerve/erythritol
3/4 cup Butter (softened)
8 large Eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 ½ Tbsp Vanilla Extract
3 cup Almond Flour
1/2 cup Coconut Flour
2 1/2 Tbsp Baking Powder


Cream cheese frosting
15 oz Cream cheese (softened)
1/3 cup Butter (softened)
2/3 cup Powdered Sweetener (adjust to taste I prefer Swerve)
2 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
2 Tbsp Heavy Whipping Cream

Filling

1 Batch of HOMEMADE keto sweetened condensed milk

Directions:

1.    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a 9" round spring form pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, beat together the sweetener and butter, until fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then the almond milk and vanilla extract.
Beat in the almond flour, coconut flour, and gluten-free baking powder.
Transfer 1/2 of the dough to the lined pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake for 18-22 minutes, until the top is lightly golden and spring-y. Repeat with another 1/2 of the dough.

2.    Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 mins(do NOT remove from the pan). Then take a wooden dowel and poke holes in the two layers staying at least 1 inch for the other holes and 1 inch from the edge of the cake. 

3.    Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the two cakes evenly. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

4.    Meanwhile, make the frosting. Beat together the cream cheese, butter, powdered sweetener, heavy whipping cream, and vanilla extract, until smooth.
Once the cakes are cool frost and decorate to your preference! 

**I used 100g of blueberries to decorate with 130g of strawberries(sliced very thin) which add an additional 7 calories per slice as well as 2g of carbs(this is optional but makes it look great).**
