Ingredients:

For the Chocolate Cake:

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup powdered erythritol (or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Mousse:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered erythritol
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line an 8-inch round cake pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together almond flour, cocoa powder, powdered erythritol, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add the eggs, almond milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool completely.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat the softened cream cheese, powdered erythritol, and cocoa powder until smooth.
  6. In another bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  7. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture to create the mousse.
  8. Slice the cooled chocolate cake in half horizontally. Spread a layer of the chocolate mousse over the bottom half and place the top half back on.
  9. Cover the entire cake with the remaining chocolate mousse.
  10. Refrigerate the cake for at least 2 hours before slicing and serving.

Note: Garnish the cake with grated chocolate, berries, or crushed nuts for an extra touch of elegance.
