Do you ever get tired of the same old, same old coffee cake? Give it a fresh facelift with the addition of roasted strawberries!

This keto-friendly cake is made with three layers: roasted strawberries, a classic low-carb almond flour based cake, and a simple gluten-free and grain-free streusel topping. Roasting the berries gives them incredibly deep flavour and they make your cake super moist and delicious.

Share this easy low-carb cake with your friends or take it to work for morning tea. Enjoy!

How to Make Dairy-Free Keto Coffee Cake

Butter is the best option for flavour but if you can't eat dairy, you could try ghee. Ghee is made from butter but is usually well tolerated as milk solids are removed. Other than ghee, you can try virgin coconut oil or palm shortening.

Palm shortening is made from palm oil. Beware that the standard practice for harvesting palm trees to produce palm oil destroys tropical forests and habitats of endangered species! Always opt for sustainably sourced palm oil and palm shortening such as Tropical Traditions.

Other Options for Keto Coffee Cake

Apart from roasted strawberries, feel free to swap for other options such as dark chocolate chips or baked zucchini slices sprinkled with low-carb sweetener and cinnamon (Did you know that zucchini is a fantastic alternative to apples?)

Delicious! Reminiscent of the pound cake I used to love as a child only the strawberries are in it! Thank you!

I'm glad you enjoyed! I know the feeling when you find a keto treat that tastes like the one you had as a kid! For me it's this one: Low-Carb Blackcurrant & Apple Crumble, and a traditional Czech Butter Cake. It's similar to yellow butter cake but without the frosting 😊 I made it low-carb in my Beginner's Keto Book: ketodietapp.com/books

Thank you for another treat link! I love that I found this site with so many great recipes. I try way more than I comment on. If I may, the smell of the strawberries roasting made my home smell so good. Who would have thought you could bake a strawberry! You opened my world!
