If you love cake, you've come to the right place. This keto holiday orange cake is a festive treat that could be enjoyed all year round. We love how this cake brings out the holiday flavors, with cardamom and orange.
The cake has a rich, but fluffy texture and is a great addition to the holiday table or for your afternoon treat. It's low-carb and has no-added-sugar, making it very keto and low carb.
Depending on how sweet you like your cake, you can add powdered sugar on top for a yummy treat or keep this on the less sweet side. We love both ways, so try it out and see what works for you.
One of the best parts about keto is you need less sugary treats as time goes on but it's always great to have an ace up your sleeve. And for us, this recipe ticks all the boxes and is kid-approved.
