Keto Chocolate Raspberry Bundt Cake is THE cake you need to make for Valentine’s Day or any day.
By now you probably know that, aside from recipe development here on the blog, I also have a keto bakery and I’m always looking for new flavors.
How to Flavor Keto Chocolate Raspberry Bundt Cake
There are a few ways to make to bring raspberry flavor to chocolate cake, and the best way is with the royal raspberry flavor from LorAnn. I buy it at my local cake supply store, but you can also get it at Amazon here. LorAnn has two flavors, raspberry and royal raspberry. You want the royal raspberry for chocolate cake (8 drops) and you will use very sparingly, meaning counting drops. I also use it to flavor my raspberry muffins (5 drops) and the chocolate ganache (3 drops).
I used to use this raspberry puree to make chocolate cake, but that will cost more, contains more carbs, and adds labor. The Raspberry Royal flavoring is truly the way to go.
Tips for the Perfect Bundt Cake without Stress
Readers, if you’re nervous about making a bundt cake, because you are afraid it will stick, let me share my tips. I have made hundreds of these in my bakery and they always come up perfectly without sticking. I would take them off the menu if I didn’t have this confidence.
- Apply softened butter to bundt pan.
- Freeze the pan. This helps set the butter. Right before adding the cake batter to the frozen pan, spray with avocado or coconut oil spray.
- After baking, cool for fifteen minutes. This is important.
- Use a strong piece of cardboard or purchase some cake cardboards to place across and cake and then flip over. Slide onto and leave it there. Place cake pan back over the cake until it completely cools. Wrap in plastic wrap until you are ready to glaze.
Perfect Keto Chocolate Cake Batter
Keeping in mind that I’ve made hundreds and hundreds of keto chocolate cakes for the bakery, this is truly a wonderful keto chocolate cake recipe.
Order Choc Zero using my discount code.
Making Raspberry Ganache
I make keto chocolate ganache at least once a week for the bakery. I use ChocZero dark chocolate chips, heavy cream and a dash of salt. For this recipe, I add in about 4 drops of the Raspberry Royal flavoring. It’s delicious.
Tips for Topping: Place a cupcake liner in center when pouring ganache.
Making Glaze, Best Way to Color Glaze
You can top the ganache with a drizzle of water glaze, made with Swerve confectioner’s sweetener and water.
- Add in a drop of pink or red food color to get this pretty pink glaze. Mix FIRST with a little water and then add the colored water to the Confectioner Sweetener.
- Add a few teaspoons of a red juice, such as pomegranate or cranberry to water and then add to sweetener.
Perfect Cake for Valentine’s, Wedding Shower, Etc
This is a special cake, perfect for upcoming Valentine’s cake, but can be made anytime and can also be ordered in my keto bakery.
