This keto coffee cake recipe is EVERYTHING. It's moist, it's dense, and it has the most absolutely perfect coffee cake texture too. And, of course, it's also topped with an irresistible cinnamon brown "sugar" crumble, and a sweet glaze just like the "regular" kind is! Seriously, you won't believe me when I tell you, but each piece of this keto coffee cake has just 2 NET CARBS! 




2 1/2 Cups (280g) Almond Flour (or Walnut or Sunflower Seed Flour)

1 Cup (150g) Confectioners Swerve (or Lakanto's Powdered Sugar)

1 1/2 Teaspoons (6g) Baking powder

4 Eggs

1/2 Cup (112mL) Almond Milk

4 Tbsps (56g) melted salted butter

Cinnamon "sugar" crumble:

1 Cup (112g) Almond flour

1 Cup (150g) Brown Swerve

6 Tbsps (84g) Melted salted Butter

1 Tbsp (6g) Cinnamon

Pinch of Nutmeg


2/3 Cup (100g) Confectioners Swerve

2-3 Tbsps (30-45g) almond milk


  1.  Pre-heat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Add all of the cinnamon sugar crumble ingredients to a small bowl, mix until combined/crumbly, and set aside.
  3. Add all of the dry ingredients for the cake to a large bowl, mix until combined, and set aside.
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, add all of the liquid cake ingredients, and mix until well combined.
  5. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix with a spatula until a thick cake batter forms.
  6. Line a 11x7” cake tray with parchment paper, coat it with baking spray, and add 2/3 of the batter to it.
  7. Add 1/2 of the crumble mixture to the top of the batter, and press it into the batter with the spatula.
  8. Cover the crumble with the rest of the batter, and top it with the remaining crumble.
  9. Bake for around 40 minutes - covering with tin foil halfway through so the crumble doesn’t burn.
  10. Once you can insert a toothpick into the cake and it comes out clean, the cake is done. Let it cool to room temperature.
  11. Once the cake is cool, add the glaze ingredients to a small bowl and mix until well combined.  
  12. Drizzle the glaze over the top of the cake and serve.
