For the Cake:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated erythritol
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

For the Butter Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated erythritol
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C) and grease a bundt cake pan.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate large bowl, cream the softened butter and erythritol until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with the unsweetened almond milk. Mix until well combined.
  6. Pour the batter into the greased bundt pan and spread it evenly.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. While the cake is baking, prepare the butter sauce. In a saucepan, melt the butter, erythritol, and water together. Bring to a gentle simmer and remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  9. As soon as the cake is out of the oven, use a toothpick or skewer to poke holes all over the cake.
  10. Pour the warm butter sauce evenly over the cake, allowing it to seep into the holes.
  11. Let the cake cool completely in the pan before gently inverting it onto a serving plate.

Note: The cake will absorb the butter sauce as it cools.
