Hi, folks! I haven’t posted a recipe in quite a while for being away, working on an exhausting research project. For over two months I had no time to bake anything sweet-tooth and keto friendly. I lived on mostly eggs and baked chicken the whole time (which was not too bad, after all).
Coming back, I am now offering an easy solution for all the white chocolate lovers. It’s a cool cake (quite literally) that manages to fill you up on a hot summer evening and deliver some extra protein in case you’ve been exercising a lot.
White chocolate and keto?
I’ve gone through a few miserable tries to invent a keto version of white chocolate in the past. To no avail so far. All the results resembled the white chocolate texture and consistency a little bit, but the taste was not half near the real thing. Not all the secret lies in cocoa butter. Consequently, we need to cheat a little from time to time.
As white chocolate (even a sugar-free version) consists of way too many carbs (milk powder in there), I’ve gone a little bit out of the usual keto path and chosen white chocolate whey protein powder. It does come as a real sweet delight if you don’t mind a few grams of extra protein.
The keto white chocolate cake recipe
So if you don’t mind the whey protein powder, go on and bake yourself (and don’t forget family and friends) a simple cake, consisting of dark and white chocolate flavors. If you really must, omit the cocoa butter and use the regular stuff. Without the cocoa butter, the cake will be less “cocoa-cacao-ey” but still delicious. Especially when cooled really well, after it has been sitting in a fridge overnight.
All kinds of chocolate lovers, enjoy!
