Few cakes are as good as butter cake.

And that's mainly due to one ingredient:

The butter!

The type of flour and the amount of sugar in regular butter cakes makes the cake very tasty, but unfortunately also very unhealthy. Especially if you have type 2 diabetes and/or are overweight.

That's why it's good to replace these two ingredients with healthier options.

That's exactly what I did in this recipe. You will learn everything here about my low-carb butter cake without sugar. Healthy for both an optimal blood sugar and a healthy weight.


To make this homemade recipe healthier, the flour has been replaced with coconut flour.

And the sugar has been replaced by erythritol powder.

With one go you make the butter cake low in carbohydrates (keto-friendly), sugar-free and healthy. And the cream cheese makes this butter cake delicious. 

If you don't like the taste of coconut, you can replace it with almond flour.

For the rest, it is actually a fairly simple recipe to make. It consists of two steps, but each of those steps is very easy.

You don't have to mix more than a few ingredients. The low-carb butter cake has two different two layers.

The great thing is that your effort is not in vain. You can get 10 servings from this butter cake. So you can enjoy it for several days... If you can stay away from it, of course.
