Keto Carrot Cake

If you love carrot cake, this keto recipe is sure to please! My sister came to me with this recipe and I knew with a couple of alterations it would be a hit. I like to spread this low carb batter in a 8 by 10 glass dish or two of the 9in pie dishes. It looks as though it’s too thin, but trust me its not and will rise up giving you just enough cake to sink your teeth into. This frosting is by far my favorite! I have learned that you can not use heavy cream with butter and cream cheese. Well you can, but its not pretty. If you want frosting that looks like frosting and tastes like frosting, then no heavy cream for this low carb recipe. Also another tip on the frosting is to not use powdered sweetener. I know what you’re thinking, but trust me on this, the powdered sweetener doesn’t come out well. I have found that powdered sweetener is much sweeter. If you try to use less, the texture is weird. If you try to use more it’s to sweet. The granulated sweetener works like a charm and is beautifully smooth and will have you looking like a professional keto baker!
