Keto Thanksgiving Spiced Ricotta Cake

This Keto spiced cake is the perfect addition to your Keto Thanksgiving menu because it's festive, flavorful, and easy to prepare. The cake is prepared with ricotta cheese, making it incredibly soft and moist. It makes for an excellent holiday dessert loved by kids and adults alike. We guarantee you that this ricotta cake is one of the best Keto Thanksgiving dessert recipes.

How to successfully bake a moist Keto cake?

Ricotta cheese is integral to this recipe, making the cake super moist and soft. It cannot be omitted or replaced in this recipe. You also need to ensure that the butter and ricotta are at room temperature to cream well and yield an evenly risen cake.

How can you customize this recipe?

This cake can be customized into many Keto Thanksgiving desserts by making a few changes. Simply replace the spices with your desired flavorings. Some great flavors include lime, cardamom, lavender, and vanilla. You can also top the cake with sliced hazelnuts, pecans, coconut flakes, a low-carb crumb before baking, or some fresh berries after baking.

For how long will this Keto spiced cake last?

We can't guarantee that this cake won't be devoured within a day. If it isn't, you can store it in an airtight cake container for three days at room temperature. To extend its shelf time, keep it in the fridge for up to a week.

Is this cake gluten-free?

Don't you love it when a fantastic recipe is gluten-free? We do too. This Keto cake is prepared with almond flour and coconut flour, both naturally gluten-free. While this recipe is safe for people allergic to gluten, it isn't safe for those allergic to dairy, nuts, coconut, or eggs.

    Loved this recipe! As a fun variation, I added some canned pumpkin and another egg and it turned out amazing!

    Delicious!! It's perfect for holidays! I baked mine in a quiche dish & it came out great! One item you left out of the ingredients list is vanilla extract & the amount but I added 1/2 teaspoon & it seems just right. Thank you for a yummy endingvto our Thansgiving dinner.
