My Love Of Baking Keto

You may have figured out by now that I enjoy cooking. BUT can I tell you a secret? What I R-E-A-L-L-Y love is baking. Maybe you came to this conclusion already because you’ve noticed my preference to show you baked goods on the blog.

Truth be told, I’ve had a love affair with baking as far back as I can remember. I recall sitting at the kitchen table eagerly awaiting a fresh-baked treat from my Mami.

I was mesmerized I was by the whole process. From the careful measuring to the undeniable smells of something being made in the oven.

Mami didn’t always bake desserts but when she did, it made the whole family happy. Even as I child it was something I wanted to replicate.

The idea that putting a few baking ingredients together could bring a smile, really drew me into the world of baking.

Thanks Mami for creating such lovely childhood memories around food for me!

Creating Keto Treats

Once I changed my diet to a ketogenic one, regular baking had to take a major backseat.

In fact, traditional baking was probably at the root of a lot of the health issues I was confronting. So, a drastic change had to come.

Keto baking started as a necessity and now has grown into a passion of mine.

So when I either have a craving or I’m a bit indecisive, it’s all I need to go into my kitchen and begin experimenting.

I hope you appreciate that this girl is willing to step out of the box to keep creating low carb keto recipes for you to enjoy and make the keto lifestyle easier?

I’ve never been one to be confined to a box, so a recipe like this keto swirled brownie suits me just fine.

You do know I have a category of just chocolate desserts right?

AND…you know what’s in that chocolate category? Several great keto tested and proved brownie recipes.

  4. Hello again! After discovering your incredible cream cheese pound cake yesterday (all 12 cupcakes... gone!), today for Valentine's Day, this will be our dessert after dining on your bacon carbonara casserole. First time for both, but I have every bit of faith our dinner will be superb! Quick question: With the pound cake, do you sift that flour, too? Can I assume that sifting is "standard procedure" for all your BAKING RECIPES even if it's not stated?
    • Hi Theresa, I need to go back and update some of my older posts to reflect the fact that I generally measure my flour and then sift. It does produce a lighter baked good and it's worth the little extra step. It wasn't something I did in the early years baking keto so it won't be something that will be detrimental to the recipe if you skip, it however makes the treat even better.
