Tools You’ll Need To Make A Keto-Friendly Poppy Seed Bundt Cake

The only tools you’ll need are an electric mixer, a stand-up mixer, and a bundt pan. 
 
Let me also mention that the type of bundt pan you use is important. Not all are created equal and after a while 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.

The making of this gluten-free poppy seed bundt cake is pretty straightforward. It’s simply a matter of measuring almond flour that has been sifted and combining it with the baking powder, and salt, and set the dry ingredients aside.
 
Then you’ll move on to wet ingredients by creaming the softened cream cheese, and butter with the granulated sugar substitute of your choice.
 
To the creamed ingredients you’ll mix in the eggs and then you’ll combine both the wet and dry ingredients, add the extract, and poppy seeds, and stir well before adding the cake batter into a 12-cup capacity bundt pan.
 
Next, it’s time to bake the cake for 45-60 minutes. The cooking time will vary depending on your oven. Test if it’s ready with an inserted toothpick that comes out clean.
 
Then after the cake is baked allow it to cool before adding the lemon icing. Finally, top the cake with some more poppy seeds.

Best Sugar Substitutes For A Sugar-Free Poppy Seed Bundt Cake

My top choice for this keto lemon poppy seed cake is a monk fruit and erythritol blend. My personal favorite is Lakanto’s brand. 
 
But you can also use Swerve an erythritol sugar substitute. 

You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure for most of my baked goods. However, if using Pyure you will want to use half the amount called for in this recipe since it’s a much sweeter choice. 

But if stevia is your preferred choice then feel free to use the Pyure brand.

When it comes to sweet lemon glaze you will have to use a confectioner’s sugar substitute. BothLakanto andSwerve have great ones.

Lastly, if you can’t easily resource a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splendawith great success.

If using Splenda, it needs to be the one that has a bulking agent. This is the one that comes in large bags. I don’t recommend Splenda Bake because it’s actually half sugar half sucralose product.
