This actually turned out amazing. I forgot to take a picture after I was done, but I loved it. I didn’t buy the icing, I made my own and wasn’t impressed. The keto powdered sugar was way too sweet. I think instead of using that and butter to make a keto buttercream, next time I’ll try some whipping cream and sugar-free pudding mix to make a creamier and less heavy icing.
The keto mix was really good. It didn’t stay in one piece. I sprayed the heck out of my pan and it still stuck. So I’m not sure what I need to do next time to fix that. It ended up tasting so good even my step-daughter wanted to eat two slices of it. It doesn’t make a ton of cake though. One 9-inch cake round was all we got. And the mix is more expensive than a normal cake mix. But it did turn out better than some of the scratch keto recipes I’ve seen online.
Plain sugar-free whipped cream on top would have been just as good for topping as well. I was pleased with how soft the keto cake turned out. It was moist and felt like cake in my mouth. Most of these keto things normally turn out grainy and feel wrong in my mouth. It’s definitely worth it. I might have to get a few of these and make one for my SO for our trip in June. That way he can have something sweet while we’re out of town for a karate seminar.
Eating out while on the keto diet is SO hard. Unless you’re going to an expensive sit-down restaurant. Even then, the carb-free choices are still pretty hard to come by. There’s always a potato or some sort of bread being shoved down your throat. I love carbs… That’s probably why I’m having so many issues dieting right now. But anywho! Do you have any good recipes for this kind of box cake mix?
