This Keto Blueberry Butter Cake is everything a dessert should be – Buttery, light crumb, packed with fresh blueberries throughout and dotted with melted cream cheese topping. The best part, this is probably the simplest keto dessert recipe to make.

Why is this keto dessert healthy?

This keto dessert recipe is made with two flours. Almond flour, this naturally gluten-free flour is nutrient-dense, high in fiber, and is packed with protein. And the other is the coconut flour, another grain-free, high fiber flour. Some other vital nutrients are iron, potassium and protein.

Blueberries are the star of this keto cream cheese butter cake. These small berries are low in net carbs and are super nutritious. Some key nutrients are iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and vitamin K. 

Blueberries are high in antioxidants and are considered a superfood. In addition, this fruit contains soluble fiber, which may benefit your digestion, gut bacteria, and blood sugar levels.

What is erythritol?

Erythritol is gluten-free sugar alcohol widely used in keto recipes to provide sweetness without carbs and an unpleasant aftertaste. 

Can I replace erythritol with other low-carb sweeteners?

Yes, you can replace erythritol with other no-carb or low-carb sweeteners such as my favourite Monk sugar, Stevia, or Xylitol. However, it is important to note that Monk sugar and stevia are much sweeter than erythritol or xylitol. 

As per Healthline, use these sweeteners in moderation as part of a healthy and balanced keto diet to add flavour while remaining low-carb. 

Another one of our favourite keto desserts are the Keto Cream Cheese Lemon Bars.

Keto Blueberry Butter Cake – the recipe details

As I said earlier, this is a simple grain-free recipe. I promise you, even novice cooks can’t mess up this keto dessert! The best part, this gluten-free butter cake has only about 4 g of net carbs per serving.

The simple details are, whisk the dry ingredients. Then coat the blueberries with some of the flour mixture, sweetener and lemon zest.

Next, cream the sugar with butter, then whisk in the wet ingredients, eggs, fresh lemon juice and vanilla.

Combine the dry ingredients with the butter mixture and spread the batter in the pan.

This keto butter cake has three layers, so once the batter is in the pan, the next layer is the coated blueberries and then cubed cream cheese. That’s it! Cover the keto cake with foil paper and bake.
