Taste-bud Journey: Chocolate Bundt Cake recipe could be Keto if you use the right Sugar

During the pandemic, I am taking taste-bud journeys as I self-isolate rather than physical journeys. Here is my adapted recipe for a Chocolate Bundt Cake baked in a DASH Bundt Cake Maker. 

If you use the correct sugar, this recipe could actual be a Keto recipe. The recipe originated from Kristina Wilds. I don't recall if I made any creative changes to the recipe. This is actually a cake that came from Kristina Wilds' Shepherd's Diet collection. That was a diet I experimented with back in the fall of 2017. I held on to the recipes I enjoyed the most during that time period. [FYI: In my opinion, this recipe is one of the few recipes that has almost just as nice of a texture made in the microwave as when it is baked using a DASH Bundt Maker. Aesthetically-speaking, I much prefer its appearance and final taste baked instead of microwaved.] 

Conclusion: Discerning taste buds will definitely be able to detect that almond and coconut flour were used instead of regular flour; however, the cake is quite delicious and moist. It is actually sweet enough on its own to not require icing. But since I had quite a bit of caramel sauce left that I had made the previous day, I decided to ice it with that. YUM! 

[FYI- I suppose, with the right kind of sugar used, the caramel sauce could probably be used on the Keto Diet, as well. But don't take my word for it. I am definitely not an expert on that diet by any stretch of the imagination. LOL!]

Keto Cake Recipe by Kristina Wilds from the Shepherds Diet - Makes 4 servings

  • 1 large Egg (or 1/4 cup Egg Beaters)
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Erythritol Sugar [FYI - I used regular sugar as I no longer had the keto-sugar on hand.]
  • 2 tsp coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp fine sea salt
  • Top with caramel sauce [FYI - That is an optional, non-keto, addition.]


  • Step 1: Melt the butter in the microwave. Whisk butter into all other ingredients in a large measuring cup or a greased mug.

  • Step 2: If you are making a mug cake, microwave for 90 seconds or until a toothpick comes out clean. If you are baking it in a DASH Bundt Cake Maker, bake for 8 minutes.

  • Step 3: If desired, top with Caramel Sauce. I will link the easy recipe I used to make this sauce below. It takes less than 3 minutes to make and is a super yummy addition.
