    This looks delishious, plan to make it this weekend. Can the protein powder be omitted or substituted? I prefer not to use whey, or to pay so much for a single use ing.

      Brenda, Unfourtanly, this recipe needs the whey protein to give it lift as many keto bakes do. I don’t really know of anything that could work and give you the correct results. I do have many other desserts that do not use whey protein but in this recipe it is needed.

    I loved this cake. Made it the other day and my boyfriend was surprised at how much it tasted like normal cake. He kept waiting for the aftertaste and there wasn’t any. I was blown away at how tasty it was. I had Powdered monk fruit so that’s what I used for my sweetener for the cake. Next time I’m going to double up on the custard because honestly it’s my favorite part of the Boston Cream Pie. Thanks for this recipe!

    After driving past a local donut shop I used to frequent (but not since going keto), I wanted to make a dessert that was reminiscent of a cream filled donut with chocolate icing. That lead me to research keto Boston Cream Pie recipes because that was the flavor I was looking for. I found this one and modified it to make individual tarts and it came out perfectly! Instead of the cake I made keto Graham cracker crusts in my tart molds and blind baked them. After the shells cooled, I filled them with the cooled custard leaving some room for the ganache, and voila! That donut taste without the sugar, gluten, and nasty overused seed oil flavor that donut shop donuts have (even Crispy Cremes) which I’ve come to really dislike. Which is a good thing, actually. Keeps me out of donut shops 😄. Best part? I estimated 4.6 net carbs per tart, and I find half a tart is really plenty.
