    Do you think this would work as a Bundt cake?

      I think that it would probably work fine but you will have to cook it for longer because a bundt cake would be much thicker. So just make sure you cook it until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Let us know how it comes out.

    Does the cake have to be refrigerated after being frosted?

      Yes, due to the cream cheese and heavy cream it should be stored in the refrigerator. Thanks

    Just made it!! It was delicious but a little too moist. Anyway to fix this? Also my hubby hates even the faintest taste of coconut. Can I eliminate the coconut flour? The frosting is the best Keto frosting ever!! Thank you!

    P.S. My cake was brownish red. Anyway to make it a vibrant red? Thanks

      Angie, I am so glad that you like the recipe. As for the coconut flour you can add a bit more almond flour. I would probably start with an additional 1/2 cup of almond flour instead of the coconut flour. As for it being moist you can either add a bit more almond flour or a bit less sour cream and maybe bake it a few minutes longer. Now that you have made it once you know what the batter should look like, so just play around with it until it looks right. I have not done any of these but I am pretty sure they would work. As for the color you can get a gel food coloring and that would add a lot of color without adding additional liquid to the recipe. I love that frosting recipe also I use it or a variation of it in a lot of my recipes. Hope that all helps. 😀

    Can I make these as cupcakes and, if yes, how long will I bake them?

      Terry, I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to make this into cupcakes. I haven’t done it but I would probably start checking them after 12 minutes. If not done put it back in for a couple more minutes and check again until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of a cupcake. We would love to know how they came out. Let us know here or tag us on Instagram.

    Can you use any other sweetener for this and can it be baked in a 9x13pan . I am excited to try this rex velvet cake is my husband’s favorite.

      Dawn, Yes you can use other sweeteners. Just sweeten to taste with your favorite sweetener. Also, yes it should be fine in a 9 x 13 pan. This will make the batter a bit thinner so decrease the cooking time by a little bit. Try 15 minutes instead of 20. Make sure to do the toothpick test. Let us know how it turned out either on here or tag us on Instagram. Hope your husband likes it as much as mine does. 😀

    When you say “erythritol powdered” do you mean the granular type of the confectioners type?

      Nichoel, You can use the already powdered kind of erythritol or you can powder it yourself. This is what we do that is why the link is to the granular. It is a bit cheaper just to powder it yourself with a coffee grinder but either one is, of course, fine in this recipe.

      Maniecel,
      I would probably do 1 and a half recipes and this would make enough.This recipe calls for 2-8 inch pans and it only goes up the pan about half way so there would be no way that you could get three out of it.

    How does this freeze? I have had no trouble freezing baked goods with almond flour and cream cheese frosting, however this recipe calls for whipped cream.

      Alison, I am not really sure I have never tried to freeze this. I would suggest trying to freeze a small piece and see how it does.

    Red velvet cake is my kryptonite on keto and I have tried really hard to avoid it or thought about how to make a keto friendly version. I came across you site by accident and when I saw keto Red velvet cake!! I said sweet baby Jesus! Thank very much! I am buying ingredients to make it this weekend! I can’t wait!

    One quick questions, what size baking dishes did you used?

      Louis, I am so happy you found our website. The cake pans I used are 8 inch round cake pans. I hope that you love the red cake as much as we do. 😁

        Hi please clear this confusion for me. Under your ingredients, you have 1/4 cup of coconut flour. 1 oz red food coloring. You also say “Add 1/2 Tbsp coconut flour for every oz of food coloring you add”

        So you used only 1/2 Tbsp of coconut flour in your recipe since you used only 1 oz red food coloring?
        Thanks.

          Louis, Sorry if this was confusing. We use 1/4 cup of coconut flour in the recipe. If you wanted your cake to have more of a red coloring you would add 1/2 Tbsp. extra coconut flour for every extra oz of food coloring you use. If you only add the 1 oz of food coloring only add the 1/4 cup that is required for the recipe.

            Thanks for the clarification and a big thanks for shearing your wonderful recipe.
            I tried it over the weekend and it turned out beautiful and the taste was amazing!
            My mom, a no nonsense give it to you straight person tasted the cake and asked me where I bought it from and when I told her I made it and told her the ingredient list, she was quite impressed!
            So your cake has convinced my most biggest food critic especially when it comes to keto and has given me a solution to my kryptonite: red velvet cake on keto. So thank you a bunch!

            Louis,
            I am so happy that you and your mom enjoyed the recipe and you are very welcome for the recipe. This was my husband’s grandmother’s recipe that I converted to keto and it has always been a favorite for us as well.
