For the Cake:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated erythritol
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered erythritol


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and line two 8-inch round cake pans with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated erythritol until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract and red food coloring.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the almond milk and apple cider vinegar.
  6. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for about 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. For the cream cheese frosting, beat together the softened cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add the vanilla extract and powdered erythritol, and beat until well combined.
  9. Once the cakes are completely cool, spread a layer of cream cheese frosting on top of one cake layer. Place the second cake layer on top and frost the entire cake.
