This recipe for low carb cinnamon bundt cake uses a combination of butter and cream cheese in the batter making it a very moist and tender cake.

It also features a cinnamon sugar swirl that makes it a keto cinnamon roll cake. This recipe gives you all the flavor you enjoy in a cinnamon roll made easily in a cake. 

If that’s not enough the cake also boasts a cream cheese icing that further mimics the flavor.

Tools Needed

You’ll need just a few tools to make this recipe most of which you hopefully already have on hand. 

The only tools you’ll need are an electric mixer, bowl, bundt pan.

Let me also mention that the type of bundt pan you use is important. Not all are created equal and after awhile bundt pans don’t release the cakes well so investing in a good one is worth the tiny investment.

I use a CasaWare’s brand because it has a granite ceramic that makes for easy release baking. 

Sugar- Substitute Options

When it comes to choosing which sugar-substitute to use for this cinnamon swirl keto cake, I have some options for you. My two favorite granulated sugar substitutes for this recipe are Lakanto Monk Fruit or Swerve.

You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure. But if using Pyure you will want to use 1/2 the amount called for in this recipe since it’s a much sweeter option.

Lastly, if you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splenda. You will want to use the Splenda that has a bulking agent. It’s the one that comes in larger bags. I don’t recommend Splenda Bake because it’s actually half sugar half sucralose product and will be too high in carbs to be considered keto-friendly 

However, when it comes to keto cream cheese icing for this bundt cake you will have to use a confectioner’s sugar substitute. Both Lakanto and Swerve have great ones.

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement 

Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our lives supported by God’s grace.

So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.

Randy had been a diabetic for over 15 years and he was dealing with the consequences of this disease. I was a survivor of the Guillan Barre Syndrome and was fighting fibromyalgia and chronic sciatica.

To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation. 

Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives.  We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
