How To Make A Keto Strawberry Shortcake-Step By Step

  1. First, there’s multiple levels to this recipe but they are all simple and easy. Start off by baking the cake portion. While the cake is baking make the strawberries and your sweet whipped cream.
  2. So, mix your dry ingredients of almond flour, coconut flour, granulated sweetener, salt and baking powder.
  3. Melt butter then mix in egg and add in vanilla extract or butter extract.
  4. Next, combine dry and wet ingredients then in a muffin top pan spread out and bake for 15 minutes.
  5. While cake is baking cut up your strawberries and place them in a small pot on the stove.
  6. On medium to low heat cook the strawberries and add in sweetener. You are looking for a thick consistency in the strawberries. See video below.
  7. Set aside to cool.
  8. Pull cakes out of the oven and let them cool. While cakes are cooling make whipped cream.
  9. With a high speed hand mixer beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Add in vanilla extract and sweetener before beating.

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • What are muffin tops? There is a special silicone pan I used to make these. You can use cupcake molds or you could drop the batter in the pan like biscuits. the muffin top pan is just super easy and creates a great presentation.
  • Cooking strawberries? When you cook the strawberries you release a completely different flavor. It’s much more of the strawberry flavor we are use to then just raw strawberries. The glaze is created by basically caramelizing the fruit. I recommend larger chunks over smaller ones. You can even cook half then toss in the raw half afterward for a more complex flavor.

  • muffin top pan

Ingredients
 

Dry

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoon granluated sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Wet

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or butter extract

Strawberry Topping

  • 3/4 cup Strawberry (126g)
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sweetener

Whipped Cream Topping

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoon sour cream
  • 2 tablespoon powdered sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Strawberry Topping
