Keto Swedish Almond Cake - Keto version of Ikea Cake - Sweetened with Allulose

Ketofied copy cat version of Ikea's Almond Cake. Both delicate and dense at the same time. Naturally gluten-free. Very unique cake.

This version saves a lot from calories. 


  • Mixing bowls and measuring cups
  • Electric Mixer
  • Two 8 or 9-inch round cake pan
  • Parchment paper


  • It is OK to use almond flour but almond meal works much better
  • Do NOT use convection for this cake otherwise, it will brown before it's thoroughly baked
  • Xanthan Gum helps with the texture, I highly recommend it but it still works without
  • You can reduce the number of egg yolks by increasing xanthan gum, it doesn't taste eggy with 4 but if you are sensitive, use just two
  • The frosting is yellowish in color due to egg yolks
  • If your frosting is warm, even at room temperature, it will be hard to whisk it well. So keep it in the fridge until it is cold.
  • Do not overbeat it, it will curdle. Still usable but not pleasant looking.

    For people with diabetes, like me, the concept of net carbs doesn’t matter much as it’s the total carbs that we need to pay attention to. Of course, I can calculate it, but since you have to do that to post the net carb information online, I was wondering if you could start to add the total carbs, too, that would help people like me a lot! I will not stop following the site because of that as it has the best recipes I can found, it’s just a suggestion. Thank you! :)

    There’s no instruction for when to add the xantham gum. Should it be while heating the custard?
