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 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! 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 nutty!


Another thing that makes this recipe great is that we added in some sour cream which makes this cake very soft and moist. Instead of being dry and crumbly, it is super 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.


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.


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.


Coffee In Coffee Cake?


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” doesn’t round too grown up. 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 delicious beverage! You can’t go wrong with this keto coffee cake!

28 thoughts on “Keto Coffee Cake”

  • Best coffee cake!!! I love it!!! I think the monk fruit sweetner products are the best- better than stevia! I’m going to try your fudge next! Thank you!

  • Fantastic cake, I only used the crumble on the top, and served it with whipped cream…Yum!
    Will definitely be making this on a regular basis.
    Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

  • Started Keto a month ago and since my husband has not I am on the look out for things we can both eat. This coffee cake is the BEST. Not only does my picky eater husband like it but asked for seconds before I even finished my first piece. Wonderful recipe and so easy to make

  • Do you absolutely need to use the xanthan gum? I’ve only done keto a little over a month and haven’t had the chance to get any yet.

    • If you omit the xantham gum, it will affect the stability of the cake. You can always try it, but we are not sure how it will turn out.

  • Made this tonight -YUMMY !!! My husband says it is a definite keeper! Reminds me of a family coffee cake recipe (not Keto) that our family makes!! I will definitely be making this again!

  • You suggest using either a 9×9 baking dish or a 9×13 casserole dish. To me, that’s quite a difference in size and must surely effect thickness, baking time and serving size. Which size of baking dish would you say gives the most desirable outcome for this coffee cake?

  • I used chia seeds 1:1 ratio instead of xanthan gum, and I swirled in the crumble rather than layering . Came out perfect, Thank You!

  • I only have a 1/2 cup of Sour cream at home, do you think the other 1/2 i can sub with plain yogurt?

    • Yes! Full fat plain greek yogurt is able to be subbed. It might affect the nutrients, altering your macros, but it is worth a shot. Let us know how it goes!

    • I am sorry that happened to you! I am not sure why it would do that. We have not had that experience before with this recipe! Is it possible that you might have accidentally left out a binder or mismeasured?

  • I just made this and it was perfect! Very similar to the coffee cake I’ve been buying at Starbucks for years. Even my husband, who is not keto, tasted it and said he will eat some tomorrow with his coffee. Thank you so much!

    • We have not tried that. I would start at 25 minutes, check with a toothpick, and keep an eye on it. Best of luck!

  • First time ever keto coffee cake as I needed to make changes to my diet. Was not hard to make and using almond flour made a difference in both texture and taste. It was great!!

  • I made it this morning and the center never got done, honestly i think i baked it for 55-60 minutes. I out it in a aluminum round pan because i wanted to slice it like a pie. What did i do wrong. I know i used the right amount of ingredients. Unfortunately I had to throw it out

    • The only reason we can think of, if all the ingredients were correct, is the pan size. We are so sorry you had this experience!
