Ketogenic Diet Chocolate Birthday Cake

Please ignore the messy frosting job, Owen wanted a star shaped cake and it seems that I am incapable of frosting one of those.

Owen turned 6 yesterday! Cameron is 15 today! I can't believe how big they've gotten. Someone asked me what we do for Owen as far as birthday cakes go since he can't eat a traditional cake, so I figured this was a good time to post his Ketogenic Chocolate Cake.

As always, please remember that the Ketogenic diet is a carefully controlled medical diet and should only be used under a trained medical team's supervision. If you are on the diet, have your dietician approve any recipe before you use it.

Chocolate Cake 3.5:1 ratio 318 calories

                                                 26g   36% cream
                                                 7.5g   coconut flour (Bob's Red Mill organic hi fiber)
                                                 4g    Truvia
                                                 3g    Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder
                                                 7g    Davinci sugar free chocolate syrup
                                                 21g  egg, raw mixed well
                                                 16g  butter, melted
                                                 6g    Spectrum Organic Coconut oil, melted
                                                 1g   baking soda
 Preheat oven to 325F. Weigh out all ingredients. Set aside the cream, 2g of the Truvia, and .5g of the Hershey's unsweetened cocoa. Mix all other ingredients together well. Spray a silicone baking mold with a keto approved non stick cooking spray. Pour in cake mix and bake for about 15-20 minutes until the center of cake springs back when touched. While the cakes are cooling, whip the cream and add the remaining 2g of Truvia and the .5g of unsweetened cocoa powder. Once the cakes are cooled, frost and enjoy!
(I found that it actually works better if you whip the cream first and weigh out the 26g , then add the Truvia and cocoa powder. That way you don't have to scrape every last bit off the beaters)
