Keto caramel dessert with Allulose

Keto Caramel Layered Dessert - Allulose Sweetened

Creamy layers with caramel taste wonderfully homey. People will ask if this is Keto, and it cannot be a diet food.

If you have some keto bread slices lying around, I found to be a perfect way to use them.

This is my Throwback Thursday Recipe as my mom used to make this dessert with left over bread when I was little. And it was one of my fav desserts since I like anything with caramel.

TOOLS and GADGETS

  • Electric mixer for whipping heavy cream
  • Small pots
  • Measuring Cups 
  • Spatulas

TIPS and SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Macademia milk can be substituted one to one with any nut milk
  • Other sweeteners can be used adjusting the amount accordingly. Stevia containing sweeteners turn too bitter for caramelization. 
  • Instead of burning the sugar, it is possible to use Torani Sweet and Salty Caramel Syrup, sugar free version of course. It has aspartame as sweetener. It's keto but questionable health wise. If you have thyroid issues, I say  just avoid it.
  • One important tip is when making caramel, add hot water all in once and be careful so you won’t burn yourself. As the sugar gets burned, the pan gets too hot and when you add water, there will be a lot of steam. Keep your hands and face away from the top of the pan. Wait a few seconds for it calm down and then stir it.
  • Use just enough caramel to moistened the breads, the amount in the recipe should be enough for any bread but for some bread, you may need to use less. Stop when you think the bread soaked well but not too much that there's extra caramel liquid. Less is more. 
  • There’s no sweetener in the middle layer (pudding). This is on purpose and it enhances the taste.
  • Whipped topping is kinda optional, if you decide against it add some sweetener to the pudding. Cream of tartar or even a pinch of salt will help achieving the stiff peaks faster. If you beat less and get only soft peaks, the dessert will be hard to slice.
