This rich cake will make you forget you’re eating Keto layer after layer.


For the Cake Layers:

For the Chocolate Coconut Ganache Filling:

For the Chocolate Frosting:

  • 3.5 oz (100 g) 100% dark chocolate, melted
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
  • Stevia/erythritol to taste
  • Extra dark chocolate, shaved (for decoration)


  1. Preheat oven to 300 F (150 C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the cake layers.
  3. Line 2 9-inch cake pans with parchment paper (make sure to line both the base and sides of the pan).
  4. Divide the cake batter between the 2 pans and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  5. Check the cake is done by inserting a cocktail stick and making sure it comes out clean.
  6. Meanwhile, mix together the ingredients for the chocolate filling and place in fridge to thicken.
  7. Then in a separate bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the chocolate frosting and refrigerate for around 1 hour for it to thicken.
  8. When the cake layers are baked, let them cool for at least 30 minutes so they’re not too hot.
  9. If the tops of the cakes are not flat, then you can gently cut off the top of one of them to make it flatter.
  10. Spread the chocolate filling on one of the cakes and place the other cake on top to form the top layer.
  11. Stir the chocolate frosting gently with a fork to make it form a frosting consistency (if it’s too hard, then let it melt a bit at room temperature, or if it’s too liquidy, place it back in the fridge for a bit).
  12. Spread the frosting on the cake and add any additional decorations you want.
