(Keto Carbs) 4g*





Cake is a perfect addition to the weekend, isn’t it? Today we have a keto hazelnut cake with chocolate buttercream. It is sugar-free, clean, lowcarb and of course keto! But beware, this cake is also highly caloric and suitable for ketarians, because it devours a whole packet of butter, cream and nuts. 

Use a 18cm springform pan for this recipe. 

Serves: 8


Ingredients for the dough:

  • 150g hazelnuts – crush yourself
  • 50g almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 80g soft butter
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 30g erythritol
  • 20g vanilla collagen with MCT

Ingredients for the butter cream:

  • 100g butter
  • 100ml cream
  • 15g pudding powder chocolate to boil up
  • 20g cacao mass chips

Ingredients for the glaze:

  • 20g cocoa butter
  • 30g cocoa mass chips
  • 5 drops of nougat drops
  • 10ml MCT oil


  1. Grind hazelnuts in a food processor to crush the hazelnuts 
  2. Beat the eggs with the erythritol until foamy 
  3. Melt butter and add to remaining ingredients and mix to a dough. A firm mass is formed 
  4. Line baking tin with baking paper 
  5. Bake the base for approx. 20-30 minutes at 175°C top-lower heat. After 20 minutes, check with a chopstick and bake for another 5 or even 10 minutes. Stay with the oven and regulate the temperature. It should not turn black. 
  6. Let it cool down 
  7. Cut off the top half 

Continue with the butter cream. 


  1. Mix the pudding powder well with the cold cream, it doesn’t dissolve well, so mix it 
  2. Let it boil briefly for a short time. Meanwhile, keep stirring. It bakes easily or it burns 
  3. Wait until it thickens, then lower the heat 
  4. Add butter and cocoa mass chips and let it melt. Don’t boil any more 
  5. Pour the mixture over the dough, let it cool and put it in the fridge 
  6. After approx. 1-2 hours, cut the cake along the edge of the cake ring and remove the cake ring 
  7. Now place the cover on top and frost 

The topping is a MCT chocolate glaze 


  1. Melt both chips together (au Bain Marie) 
  2. Add the drops 
  3. When the chocolate is melted, stir in the MCT oil first 
  4. Pour the icing over the cake 
  5. Eat immediately or put in the fridge
