This grain free pumpkin spice cake just might be my favorite Autumn dessert, although these maple cheesecake bars are a close second.

After many tries figuring out to make a great cake with almond flour, this low carb orange olive oil cake that went through six trials helped me determine a good “basic” almond flour recipe that can enjoy several variations.

Grain Free Pumpkin Spice Cake is kind of a cross between a pumpkin cake and pumpkin bread.

I make it as a one layer snacking cake, but you easily double the recipe and make a layer cake, with the frosting recipe below.

It has the heft and flavor of  pumpkin bread but also has the texture of a good Autumn Holiday cake.

My Almond Flour Low Carb Cake Recipe is the Base for this Grain Free Pumpkin Spice Cake

My basic recipe includes 280 grams of blanched almond flour, five eggs, one teaspoon baking powder, one half cup of oil or butter (or a combo) and one cup of something. In this I used half oil, half butter.

In this case the something is pumpkin. You can use regular sugar. I made this sugar free and I used Swerve as my sweetener.

What Sweetener is Used in this Keto Friendly Grain Free Pumpkin Spice Cake?

If you’re new here, Swerve is the sweetener I now use in my desserts. It’s a powdered erythritol that has no carbs and does not spike blood sugar. Find out more about why I use Swerve in this post. 

Swerve Sweetener now make a brown sugar and I used some of that in this cake, adding extra notes of flavor.
