Keto Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake

This Keto Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake may just be the best cake I’ve ever made, low carb or not! Don’t let the photos fool you if you’re reading this during a time of the year when it’s not the holidays as this cake is perfect for any occasion.

The recipe base is similar to this Keto Pumpkin Bundt Cake but we’re using pureed zucchini instead of pumpkin. That little extra moisture in the zucchini compared to the pumpkin makes this cake extra fudgy. Then, when you add the chocolate fudge frosting you've got one cake that everyone will love!

Oh my gosh! This was sooooo good!
I didn’t have enough almond flour, so I used 2C of almond flour and 3/4C of coconut flour (which made the batter  REALLY thick, so I added about 2-3 T of heavy cream) I also only have Stevia. I only added about 1/2C of it, as it is so sweet. Even with all of these changes, the recipe is very forgiving... I don’t know how this changes the nutritional information, though.
I also made the pumpkin bundt cake for Thanksgiving this year. I might have an abnormally large bundt pan. Both of these recipes only filled my pan half way, so I only needed to cook them for about 40 minutes.
Both were delicious!

Thank you for the tips India, I'm glad you enjoyed! 😊

Hi Martina!  This recipe looks amazing!
I have a bundt cake pan that makes, as silly as this sounds, six medium sized baby bunnies.  Would you recommend sticking to the times above, or using the keto cupcakes recipe you reference below?
Thanks so much!

Hi Gina, I would go for something in between the time to bake for the large bundt cake and muffins. 6 medium bundt cakes would be about twice as big as muffins so I'd go for 40-45 minutes (check them with a wooden stick after 40 minutes). I hope this helps! 😊

Wowza!!!! This tastes divine. I topped mine with a dollop of whipped cream & am in heaven.

What adjustments should I make to convert these into cupcakes?

You can try the temperature and cooking time that I used in a similar recipe: Healthy Keto Halloween Cupcakes

Hi,  just curious what are the berries you have along with this cake? It sure makes the cake more stunning.

Reply

Hi Derilynn, these are cranberries but I suppose you can use any berries 😊

Can I use Stevia instead of Erythritol?

Reply

You can try a product that is made with a combination of sweeteners. Stevia on it's own may taste bitter but you can try products made with stevia, Erythritol, FOS or monk fruit. You can learn more about sweeteners here: Complete Guide To Sweeteners on a Low-carb Ketogenic Diet

I’ll use Monk Fruit instead, may also mix in some Stevia. Thank you.

This looks amazing. Can it be frozen?

Reply

I think you can. That's what I do with half of the cakes I make. Unless there is cream-based frosting, freezing cakes (sliced) should work just fine.

This looks so festive. I love the recipe too - seems like the cake would taste amazing.

Great looking cake.
Looking forward to making it.
Do I peel the zucchini’s to remove the skins?
Or just purée all of it?
Thank you

Looks so good! I’m thinking I’ll make it for Christmas

I cooked this last night for party with non keto friends and everyone loved it! This is the moistest and and one of the yummiest cakes I’ve ever made. Per the question above I puréed the raw zucchini in a vitamix and folded it into the rest of the batter. It took the cake moisture to another level!

Reply

This looks yummy! I do have a question regarding the zucchini. Do you steam/cook it before pureeing or do you shred the zucchini raw? Is it necessary to remove any superfluous moisture before adding to the mixture?
Thx for your reply

Reply

I'll have to ask Lauren but if it was me, I would puree it raw and use all of it. It's what makes the cake moist & fudgy 😊

Reply

Hi Francoise, great question! You do purée the raw zucchini and use all of it, definitely don't remove the moisture as that's what keeps the cake tender!
