Mini Chocolate Loaf Cakes with Fudge and Vanilla Frosting | Low Carb | Keto

These Mini Chocolate Loaf Cakes are the perfect chocolate dessert. They are each big enough to share with a friend (a good friend of course), or loved one. They are made from a low carb / keto friendly cake mix that has been developed by KawaiiTreatsAndEats. This is a solely owned business that specializes in low carb/gluten free/sugar free cookie and cake mixes. Honestly this is the best chocolate cake I've eaten since I have started following a low carb diet. It is moist and has a deep chocolate flavor. I don't know what her magic is, but her baking mixes are fantastic. Her mixes are totally worth it. She stocks her Etsy shop every Sunday with a variety of mixes. They are all so easy to make. I decided to play around with her Dark Chocolate Cake, which normally is prepared and then baked in an 8x8 baking pan, by changing it up a bit and made 3 mini cake loaves. I wasn't sure if I wanted vanilla or chocolate frosting or both - I went with both. The recipe below is the perfect amount of frosting for three loaves (half chocolate, half vanilla). You may even have a spoonful left for licking. Just make the cake as directed and spoon into three loafs in a mini loaf baking pan. Once cooled, top with frosting.

CHOCOLATE FUDGE FROSTING


Ingredients:

2 Tbsp sugar-free chocolate chips, such as Lily's chocolate chips

1/2 Tbsp coconut oil

1/4 cup butter, softened

1 1/2 oz cream cheese (full fat), softened

1/3 cup Swerve, confectioners style

1 Tbsp dark (or regular) unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream


Directions:

1. In a mixing bowl, mix the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until smooth, using a whisk or hand mixer until well combined. Set aside.

2. In microwaveable bowl melt chocolate chips and coconut oil together for 30 seconds, stir and continue to melt in 30 second intervals until completely melted. Whisk in cocoa powder into the melted chocolate.

3. Add chocolate mixture to the cream cheese mixture. Mix until well combined. Mixture will be thick.

4. Add in the heavy whipping cream, one tablespoon at time, until you reach the consistency you like. The more heavy whipping cream you add, the thinner the frosting will get. If you like a thicker richer frosting use less cream.


VANILLA CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:


Ingredients:

2 oz cream cheese

3 Tbsp butter, softened

1/3 cup Swerve, confectioners style

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 to 2 tsp heavy whipping cream


Directions:

1. Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla with a hand mixer or whisk until blended.

Add Swerve sweetener, a few tablespoons at a time and continue to mix until well combined. If frosting is too thick add up to 1 teaspoons of heavy whipping cream. Enjoy!
