Keto Friendly King Cake!

So there are times that it becomes obvious to me just how deeply Louisiana culture has pushed into my personality, even though I haven’t lived there in many years now!

What kind of things you say?

Like when it’s cold, I want Gumbo, including potato salad!

And in late January, I start wanting King Cake in time for Mardi Gras!

If you aren’t familiar with Mardi Gras, it means “Fat Tuesday” which is meant to be a bit of a party before the Christian season of Lent begins (which itself leads into Easter).

King Cake is a traditional Mardi Gras season treat! It’s basically a sweet roll (similar to a donut in consistency) that you can customize the filling with cinnamon, chocolate, and cream cheese. Often you can glaze it and add sprinkles (purple, gold, and green generally).

And trust me, I LOVE a good King Cake. But I DON’T love the HUGE amount of sugar that in a typical serving!

So I wanted to make my own Keto Friendly option!

Now you can enjoy your King Cake – WITHOUT the sugar!

Ingredients:

Dough

2 cups mozzarella cheese part skim, shredded

3 ounces cream cheese

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

3/4 cup coconut flour

1/2 tsp vanilla liquid stevia

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp baking powder

1/4 cup Stevia cup for cup sugar replacement 

Cinnamon “Sugar”

1/4 cup butter melted

1/4 cup Stevia cup for cup sugar replacement 

1 tsp cinnamon

Cream Cheese Frosting

3 tbsp heavy cream

3 ounces cream cheese

2 tbsp Stevia cup for cup sugar replacement

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the mozzarella and cream cheese and melt together for 1 minute in a microwave or over the stove on low heat. Stir. Heat for another 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.

Add the remaining king cake dough ingredients, incorporate as much as possible. I used a food processor and it worked great!

Roll the dough on a piece of parchment paper. Make a rectangle shape. About 12 by 16 inches.

Combine the melted butter, sugar free sweetener and cinnamon. Mix well to combine, spread onto the rectangle of dough. Roll up dough like a jelly roll. Use parchment paper to help with stickiness.

Bake 15-18 minutes. While it is baking, make the frosting.

Add the frosting ingredients into a mixer and mix until smooth.

Once king cake is out of the oven. Let Set to cool. Then, spread the frosting over the top and enjoy!

P.S. If you want to lose weight, have more energy, and less sugar cravings, you are in the right place!
