Carnivore Cake

Eating cake on the carnivore diet? sounds impossible. Or at least until I created this cake with carnivore friendly ingredients, and to be honest- it tastes amazing. The texture of my cake is perfect, and it tastes sweet- but without all the carbs.

Sure, there are many low carb cake recipes, but most of them are not really carnivore friendly. That’s why I decided to create my own version- the perfect cake using carnivore ingredients and almost zero carbs!

Perfect Carnivore Dessert– The carnivore diet is all about eating meat, but sometimes you also want to celebrate. And finding a carnivore friendly dessert is not easy. That’s why I LOVE this recipe. Easy, tasty- and it’s the perfect carnivore dessert.

Easy– This carnivore cake recipe is very easy. When I don’t have too much time to spend in the kitchen, recipes like this one are perfect.

✨ Recipe Ingredients

To make this carnivore dessert, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 4 large Eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups Whole Milk
  • 1/2 cup Monk Fruit– Use this monk fruit (Amazon link) for this recipe. I like using the monk fruit sweetener because it doesn’t have the same aftertaste as other sugar substitutes. You could also use erythritol or other keto-friendly sweeteners.
  • 5 tablespoons Butter 
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract Use this excellent vanilla extract (Amazon link) for this recipe.

Optional: If you are not following a 100% strict carnivore diet, you can spread honey over the top after baking (like I did). But remember – it’s totally optional!

👨‍🍳 How To Make

Follow these steps to make the best carnivore cake:

Step 1

Start by preheating the oven to 350F (175C).

Place the 4 eggs in a large bowl and beat them for 4-5 minutes (you can use a hand mixer).

Step 2

Start gradually adding the sweetener while mixing. Continue mixing until the mixture is light and fluffy. Then, add the vanilla extract and mix again.

Step 3

Heat the milk and butter in a saucepan over medium heat for 2 minutes.

Step 4

Start slowly adding eggs and mixing them until everything is well combined.

Step 5

Pour into a medium baking dish. Bake for 35-40 minutes. After removing the carnivore cake from the oven, let it rest for at least 30 minutes. Enjoy!

1. The Right Sweetener

I recommend using Monk Fruit as the sweetener for this recipe. However- it’s important to mention that for those on a very strict carnivore diet- the use of any sweetener can be problematic. For most people- it’s not a problem. A bit of sweetener here and there (not on a regular basis) won’t do much.

But those who follow this diet because of serious health issues- sticking to strictly eating meat and avoiding sweeteners is better.

2. The Baking Process

I bake this cake until it’s just set- it will continue to cook slightly (from residual heat) after being removed from the oven.

If you overbake it- the cake will be dry in texture. Underbaking is not good too- the center will be too moist. The golden brown color on top and a slight springiness to the touch is what I’m looking for. An inserted toothpick or knife should come out clean, indicating the cake is done.

3. Whip the Eggs Thoroughly

When I whip the eggs- I basically incorporate air into the batter- and that gives the cake its fluffy and airy texture.

I recommend using a stand mixer or a hand mixer on high speed for 4-5 minutes until the eggs double in volume. They will also become pale yellow. The mixture should form peaks when lifted. Don’t rush this step!

4. Resting The Cake

Once the cake is baked, I allow it to rest in the baking dish for 30 minutes. This allows it to set properly and makes it easier to cut and serve. Also, the flavors of the cake mature and meld during this time.

After resting, I transfer the cake to a wire rack to allow it to cool completely. This should prevent the bottom from becoming soggy because of the steam that is trapped under it.

Whipped Cream – The simplest option is to just top it with some freshly whipped heavy whipping cream. 

Cream Cheese Frosting – Beat together room temperature cream cheese with butter, vanilla, and sweetener (I suggest confectioners style erythritol).

Mascarpone Frosting – Blend together mascarpone cheese, vanilla, and sweetener until smooth and fluffy.

    • I used cream but added a little water to make the amount called for in the recipe, and it turned out really nice. I may try adding a little powdered milk to the water next time and add it to the cream. But cream worked fine for me.

    Thank you for this twist on egg pudding! I used allulose and cream with water- tasty, very good “Crust” on the edges and top- I made them in tiny loaf pans and they were ready in less than 20 minutes. Great recipe, concise and very easy to follow-
