Easy and Delicious Keto Coffee Cake

This Keto Coffee Cake is super soft, buttery, moist, flavorful, and cinnamon-y! It is the perfect breakfast treat to go with your morning coffee.


Unlike most other coffee cake recipes, we have not only included a delicious cinnamon crumble on top of this cake, but also in the middle! Yes, TWO LAYERS of yummy cinnamon is as delicious as it sounds! You could even add some almonds or pecans to the recipe if you are feeling a little nutty!


Another thing that makes this recipe so great is the addition of sour cream to the batter, which makes this cake exceptionally soft and moist without affecting the tase.


Instead of being dry and crumbly like some coffee cakes tend to be, this keto coffee cake is rich and very moist. If you prefer a more dense cake though, feel free to only use 1/2 cup of sour cream instead of an entire cup.


It’s no secret: we love cinnamon! Some of our other favorite recipes using cinnamon are our Keto Cinnamon Pretzels  and our Thick and Soft Keto Snickerdoodle Cookies. If you are a cinnamon lover like me, you will love these recipes as well.


Another thing we love about this keto coffee cake recipe is that it stores in the fridge extremely well.


You can store your leftover keto coffee cake in the fridge for up to a week! I like to microwave a piece each morning and eat it while I drink my morning coffee. If you’re a meal prepper and want to take care of breakfast for a week, this keto coffee cake is a must!


Coffee In Coffee Cake?

So, moment of honestly here. For a good part of my life, I assumed that “coffee cake” must be made with coffee. Makes sense, I thought.


But that was before I was a coffee drinker and when I thought “coffee cake” was an old person food.


Now I know that, despite the name, there is no coffee in this cake. Instead, coffee cake got its name because, you guessed it, it is enjoyed best with a cup of coffee in the morning.


I think it’s called “coffee cake” because “breakfast cake” sounds like something a toddler would invest as an excuse to have birthday cake for breakfast. Trust me though, this cake is good at any time of day!


Our keto coffee cake is great with a cup of coffee in the morning, but it’s also delicious with a cold glass of almond milk, a cup of hot tea, or pretty much any other delicious beverage at any time of day! You can’t go wrong with this keto coffee cake.

Keto Coffee Cake Sweetened With Monkfruit

This keto coffee cake, just like all of our keto desserts, is sweetened with Lakanto Monkfruit, which is our absolute favorite keto friendly sweetener. Monkfruit is zero glycemic, completely natural, carb free, has a 1:1 ratio to sugar which makes converting traditional recipes a breeze, and most importantly, it tastes absolutely amazing which makes it the perfect sweetener in my book!


Unlike many of the other keto friendly sweeteners on the market, with Monkfruit, there is no nasty aftertaste, and of all the keto sweeteners, it truly tastes the best.


If you have never tried Monkfruit, or if you just need to restock, you can purchase some through Lakanto’s website. If you shop their website, use our code, “BUTTERTOGETHER” at checkout and you will save 20% off of your entire purchase! This coupon applies to all products on their site as well, and not just Monkfruit. View all of Lakantos amazing keto products, including brownie mix, cookie mix, spreads and more HERE!
