Coconut flour recipes like this keto vanilla cake, are nut-free, sugar-free, grain-free, and naturally gluten-free. And of course, the keto sponge cake is low carb – there are just 2.2 grams net carbs in one slice.

What is keto sponge cake?

A keto sponge cake is a gluten-free vanilla cake with fresh berries (or frozen berries) pressed into the top. This recipe can be baked as one large cake or baked in a square dish to make keto bars.

This is a light and fluffy cake that will soon become your favorite dessert cuisine to make for parties.

Using coconut flour and sugar-free sweetener makes this low-carb sponge cake keto.

It has a really light texture that goes with any dessert or drink that you make.

It is my favorite sugar-free cake recipe. When you prepare keto recipes that taste just like their carb-filled counterparts, it is easier to stay within your macros on the keto diet.

To make this low carb sponge cake, you’ll just need a few simple ingredients such as:

  • melted butter – you can use salted butter or salted butter with a pinch of salt.
  • coconut flour – this sponge is light and airy thanks to the qualities of coconut flour. Coconut flour is a naturally gluten-free low-carb flour.
  • granulated sweetener of choice – find my top picks in this article featuring the ultimate guide to sweeteners. Granulated sweetener works well such as erythritol, monk fruit, allulose, or xylitol.
  • vanilla extract – or vanilla essence.
  • baking powder – do not use baking soda, make sure it is baking powder.
  • eggs
  • frozen berries – I prefer raspberries, but you can use a different type if you’d like! Just keep in mind the berry carb count.

For exact quantities, see the sponge cake recipe card at the bottom of this post.


It’s really easy to make your own sugar-free vanilla cake with berries. And the end result is absolutely worth the small amount of effort it takes to bake this cake!

This simple keto recipe is all made in one large mixing bowl – so there’s no need to mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients, there’s no need to use a stand mixer or to beat egg whites to stiff peaks.

STEP 1: Gently fold the melted butter, coconut flour, sugar-free sweetener, vanilla extract, and baking powder until it is smooth.

STEP 2: Slowly add your eggs, stirring really well in between each one.

Make sure you don’t over-mix the cake batter.

STEP 3: Pour the low-carb sponge cake batter into a prepared baking dish.

Press frozen berries evenly into the top of the cake.

Press frozen berries or fresh berries into the cake batter.

To make sure the cake layer doesn’t stick to your pan, place some parchment paper on the bottom of your dish first.

Preheat oven and bake the keto cake until it is completely cooked in the middle.

TOP TIP: When I add frozen berries to a cake, I wait until the mixture is in the baking dish, then press the frozen berries in the batter so they are evenly distributed and won’t color the cake batter.


  • Allow the low-carb cake to cool completely before decorating with powdered sweetener (swerve confectioners are a good option).
  • Serve with whipped cream (heavy cream), natural unsweetened yogurt, or whipped coconut cream on the side.
  • Vanilla cream cheese frosting is a little heavy to serve on top, but is nice served on the side.


This is a simple recipe for a low-carb cake, so there aren’t many substitutions you can make. If you don’t have butter, you can use ghee or even some melted coconut oil. Overall, however, I suggest you stick with the recipe for best results!

Keto sponge cake made without almond flour.


The fun thing about this keto cake is that it’s almost a blank slate! You can change the flavor in so many fun ways. Here are a few ideas to make this one of your favorite recipes:

  • Swap the berries – The keto sponge recipe calls for raspberries but you can easily adapt the recipe using your favorite berry, or whatever is in season at the time. Frozen berries are an economical and easy option. I always have a few bags in the freezer.
  • Flavor the sponge – add lemon juice and lemon zest to your cake batter.
  • Swap the toppings – You can also top this keto sponge cake with some sugar-free whipped cream. Or make your own meringue topping with egg whites. Just whip your egg whites until stiff peaks form. Top the whipped cream with some lemon zest for a fresh-tasting low-carb sponge cake.

Use any type of baking dish that you have; you will just have to adjust the baking time. Pour batter into muffin tins or a bundt cake pan for a different take.

FAQs about keto sponge cake

Is coconut a nut?

The FDA lists coconut as a tree nut but it’s actually not one. Instead, coconut is a seed of a group of fruits known as drupaceous, which also includes cherries, dates, and apricots.

The bottom line is that while most people who are allergic to tree nuts can safely eat coconut, it’s important to speak to your doctor and follow their advice on this topic! Some people are allergic to both.

Does coconut flour taste like coconut?

Coconut flour is a common low-carb flour that is light, incredibly absorbent, and easily flavored. Most readers tell me that coconut flour does not taste like coconut.

However, if you are sensitive to the coconut flavor, you can add a bit more vanilla extract to the flourless berry sponge recipe to help cover and hide the mild coconut taste.

How do you make this cake recipe dairy-free?

If you cannot tolerate dairy, you may wish to use coconut oil instead of butter, but add a pinch of salt and some extra flavoring as the butter does add a rich buttery taste to the flourless sponge recipe.

Are almond flour and coconut flour 1:1 substitutes for each other?

Even though people use both almond flour and coconut flour in dessert recipes for the low-carb diet, they are not exactly the same. They affect moisture content in the dessert in different ways, so it is important for you to follow the recipe.

I wrote an entire article about why you can’t swap almond flour and coconut flour if you’d like to learn more.

Does the keto cake have to be vanilla?

You can add any flavor you like to the low-carb keto cake. My favorite is to add lemon zest and lemon juice combined with the berries is incredible.

Do I need to use organic eggs?

Which eggs you use is up to you, and your budget.

Why do some keto-friendly cakes use protein powder?

Protein powder is often used in keto cakes and low-carb cakes to replace gluten that is found in wheat flour.

Do I need to beat egg whites and

Many cake recipes require you to whisk egg whites until stiff peaks form with an electric whisk. This is such a great recipe because none of that is needed.

  1. Can’t wait to try this! Thanks!

  2. Do you think this would work with eggbeaters?

    1. I generally just use a wooden spoon. No need to make the batter too smooth but if you like a smooth consistency then yes, egg beaters would work.

      1. Libby, I wonder if Kathleen means Eggbeaters which are a commercial egg-white only product.

        1. Ahhhh, I have never heard of that. Funny, we call egg beaters the appliance you beat eggs with. We’ve all leant something new here today.

          1. Yeah I’m with you Libby but I have heard of a product called eggbeaters so I just wondered 😉

  3. I’ve noticed you normally don’t specify the size of the baking dish you use. Is there a particular reason for that? When following recipes I don’t feel very confident if I don’t know the size of pan/dish the cook has used as I worry I might need to adjust my baking time but don’t know it! 🙁

    1. To be honest, time. I am so busy I generally make a recipe then just find a dish that will fit. I’ll try and add the size from now on (if I remember) 🙂

  4. Made this tonight & it’s a hit. I used a spring form cake tin & found I needed to cook it for much longer. Thank you for another great recipe.

  5. Judy-Ann Craill says:

    I tried the cake this evening but it took an hour to cook and it seems quite brown compared to yours….where am I making a mistake? Could it be with the cup sizes. I have read that the US and UK cup sizes are different. Could you advise in grams if possible?

    1. LESLIE HURLEY says:

      Same issue here

  6. Libby, this looks divine – do you find the coconut flour makes for a dry crumb? I am intrigued and think this cake is on the cards for the week. Along with some proper custard now that it’s so cold 🙂

    1. No I make sure my eggs:coconut is high enough so it is moist and I also ensure I don’t overcook it. Serving with custard sounds amazing, yes it’s getting cold in Auckland too. Brrrr.

  7. The recipe says stevia but you show Swerve, which measures very differently from stevia, in the products used. According to the stevia website one teaspoon of stevia equals one cup of sugar so 3-5 tablespoons would be equivalent to 9-15 cups of sugar. That doesn’t make sense to me. I don’t have Swerve or stevia so am trying to work out how much to use.

    1. You may be looking at pure stevia from their website. I clarify mine by saying “granulated stevia” which measures spoon for spoon instead of sugar and adding a photo. Swerve is available in the US and Natvia in NZ and AUS. Usually it is blended with erythritol. I also state in every recipe to add to YOUR taste as we all have a different set tooth depending on how long we have been sugar free so your stevia requirement may be more or less than the recipe. I personally find the stevia drops or pure stevia far too easy to over or under dose.

      1. Thanks. I’m new to the alternative sweetener world so it’s all Greek to me.

        1. I actually used 5 tablespoons of sugar in the raw. I wonder how this would work with a liquid sweetener like molasses or maple syrup?

          1. Either of those would be fine, just be aware they are both sugar, just in a different form so will raise your blood sugars.

  8. Please tell me what I did wrong! Mine tasted like a fruity fritatta – very eggy and the bottom had settled into a kind of solid egg custard, while the top part was quite fluffy. Any tips?

    1. It sounds like it may not have been mixed thoroughly enough. I have made this half a dozen times and never had this. Did you add enough coconut flour? It makes for a light cake/sponge and shouldn’t be heavy at all. In fact I add cocoa to this recipe sometimes to make a decent chocolate cake or slice. The other thing with coconut flour, it takes a while to absorb all the liquid, so maybe next time let it sit in the mixing bowl whilst the oven is warming up, then give it another final mix before popping the mixture into the baking dish.

  9. Hi Libby! Made this last night, and my two boys loved it. Thank you! I needed to cook it for an extra 5 mins or so, but it turned out beautifully. Thanks again.

  10. Hi Libby! Thank you for this recipe. I made it last night, and my two boys loved it. It turned out well – just needed to cook it in my oven for an extra 5 mins or so. Thanks again!

  11. Tiiu Knude says:

    Lovely recipe, Libby! This was my first Ditch the Carbs recipe and it was perfect. I am a lemon fan so I swapped out the vanilla for lemon rind and zest and sweetened with 1/4 cup of xylitol and added blackberries. A great tea cake, very tender, nice texture! Definitely the most successful coconut flour recipe that I have ever made. Thank you!!!

    1. Brilliant!!! I am slowly moving over to more coconut flour cakes as I find it easier to work with, cheaper and are fab for those with nut allergies.

  12. Kara Templar says:

    Just made this cake and it was the best coconut flour recipe I have made! 2 & 4 year old love it with cream!

  13. Diana Jethwani says:

    Can’t wait to try this! Can I use fresh strawberries instead of frozen?

      1. Diana Jethwani says:

        Ok, thank you Libby! Unfortunately I can’t have any berries right now except strawberries, so I’ll give it a go and hope for the best! Thank you!

  14. Bethany Safadi says:

    Any thoughts on using an egg replacer? I have a little one with an egg allergy.

      1. Bethany Safadi says:

        Thank you! That’s what I thought but was hoping I was wrong!

          1. Chuck Jones says:

            I ran across some information for vegan baking, that uses flaxseed meal in place of eggs. 1 tbs flaxseed meal to 3 tbs water.
            My experience with ground flax, allow the flax meal and water mixture to rest for a few minutes to thicken.


  15. I just made this for strawberry shortcake it’s really good. I just made it without the fruit and then topped it with the fruit.

  16. This recipe is very nice. Not dry like other coconut-flour recipes I’ve tried (although still a bit dry because I think that’s par for the course). I’ve made it twice, and the second time I added the zest of one orange, which gave it a very nice flavor. I haven’t had any raspberries around, so I used a diced apple and a half-cup of blueberries (a total of 1 1/2 cups of fruit). The apple bits helped the cake to feel more moist. It’s great served with cream cheese. It freezes well too. I froze slices and pulled them out for breakfasts. Thanks for making a gluten-free recipe without nuts! I’m allergic to almonds and hazelnuts, which rules out far too many treats.

    1. Great adaptations Jennifer. I use this recipe as a base for so many cakes now. I have even tried to cut it down to 1/3 cup of coconut flour and that seems to make it moist and fluffy.

      1. Libby, when you do cut back on the coconut flour to 1/3 cup, by how many eggs to do you also cut back? I am sooooo looking forward to making this. Thank you.

        1. I kept the eggs the same. It was only once I tried to cut the coconut flour down to 1/3 to see if it made a big difference and it didn’t seem to.

  17. Libby, you say to, “Press each frozen berry evenly into the cake,” but your photo likes like they are at varied heights throughout the cake. Do some sink lower and others do not? Regardless, I look forward to baking this cake. Thanks so much for keeping costs affordable by using coconut flour! 🙂

  18. The cake is really nice, I’ve tried it once, but it went bad within 48 hours. What a pity, it goes bad very fast. I goes because of the high amount of eggs?

      1. Yes it was summer here. I had it in an airtight container but not in the fridge. Will redo this in winter.

  19. Wow!!! Tried this yesterday and they were amazing. Could not taste the coconut which was good for me. Thank you.

  20. Hello, the first step states 1. Mix the ____, do u mean mix manually or with an electric beater?
    Also, I’ve been looking for a carb and sugar free strawberry sponge cake, I presume it’s ok to beat up my strawberries and perhaps add some flavoring so it smells even better?

    1. I tend to make this by either using a wooden spoon or use my electric mixer/beater. Both techniques work well. Yes you can add strawberries but be aware that they are more difficult to bake with sometimes because they are so high in water. You could always make a strawberry coulis to serve drizzled over each slice. Puree up strawberries, a squeeze of lemon juice (not much) and some sweetener depending on how sweet your strawberries already are. That would be amazing.

  21. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  22. My tasted super eggy, like a dense quiche with berries in it. Maybe i did something wrong? Definitely didnt taste like cake.

    1. If it tastes eggy, I would add more vanilla and sweetener. That always seems to do the trick. With all low carb recipes, taste before baking then adjust sweetener to your liking. Were are all on different parts of our low carb journey so one person might find a recipe too sweet or not sweet enough. You can always salvage a recipe with sweetened whipped cream too. I hate to waste anything.

  23. TheGiantGirl says:

    Whole family liked this. Thank you! Not having to bake separate recipies for those who eat lots of carbs is a huge time saver. They also loved your cauliflower rice. I finally feel like I am winning with preparing low carb family meals that everyone enjoys. You = Godsent.

  24. Thank you so much for recommending this cake! I have to say I was a bit apprehensive about making it as I had read in the comments that some people had their cakes turn out ‘eggy’ and I have never used coconut flour before. I also had some issues with my cake tin. So I took extra care with making this cake and it turned out perfectly! The texture is definitely a bit different to the almond flour cakes, this one seems firmer and denser, but still very moist and lovely. The vanilla flavour really comes through a lot and the raspberries are beautiful! And my poor sister finally got to try my low carb baking! She’s allergic to almonds so has had to miss out on the cakes so far, but she got to try this one and loved it 🙂

  25. You say you use a silicon baking dish, but you don’t tell us what SIZE, or if those using non silicon need to grease, or grease and flour the pan. I do see you addressed this in another comment now, but the pan size is crucial info for recipes – we really need that to duplicate results.

    1. Anita Chen says:

      Hi Diana, I had the same question but I trie it last night and used a 6-inch removable cake pan. It was the right size.

  26. Just made this, per the recipe with frozen raspberries. The only deviation was that I had to bake it for 37 minutes. I asssume it may be the size of pan resulting in a thicker cake. Nonetheless, it was fantastic! Looking forward to baking again for my family. I’m not sharing this one!

  27. Tracy Richardson says:

    I have made this cake three times now and it is always a hit. Very easy to make and delicious. I use a mix of frozen berries and fresh rasberries. Yum!

  28. I made this last night and it has a lovely flavour. Only problem is in the middle and the bottom it had a much eggier structure whilst along the edges it seemed more of a sponge. I did mix it well (I thought) but perhaps not enough, the one thing is I used desiccated coconut rather than coconut flour as in the UK this isn’t something I’ve come across before. Do you think this would have had an impact on the result? I wondered about adding more ? Either way it still tasted lovely, not too eggy and have rebranded this attempt as a pudding rather than a cake! Thanks 🙂

    1. Desiccated coconut is completely different to coconut flour I’m afraid. This article on low carb flours might help you. It is available in the UK, it may be in the health aisle or “free from” aisle. Coconut flour is amazing and absorbent. I also think it works out cheaper than almond flour/meal because recipes require such a little amount. I’m sure you’ll have success with the next batch. A bag of coconut flour will last you months, so hunt it down and enjoy some coconut flour waffles next. You will love those.

      1. U L emeliez says:

        You can get coconut flour in the UK. It is widely available in almost all supermarkets, Amazon, Holland and Barrett .

    2. Gem, you can get coconut flour from Holland & Barrett or Grape Tree health food shops here in the UK. I use Grape Tree’s own brand (but not Holland & Barrett’s – Try instead Tiana or Biona brand, sold there)
      Look forward to trying this recipe myself.

    3. you can get coconut flour pretty widely in the UK now – I can get it in Tescos and I saw it in Morrisons the other day. Also available from

  29. I have no idea what size cups you are using, is there any way the recipe could have measurements in grams all the way through in the same way you have for butter?

  30. Has anyone ever tried to make muffins with this recipe? Also, I am wondering if full fat Greek yogurt could substitute for some of the eggs to add moisture with less “egginess”? Thanks!

  31. I have made this cake! Thanks!!!

    – I used only 3 eggs and the batter is very liquid (even after some standing time) — maybe different brand of coconut flour has varying liquid absorption? So I stopped at 3 eggs and it baked well, happy!!

    – the cake was quite soft and spongy when it first came out of oven, but after putting in the fridge (it was meant to be my friend’s birthday cake the next day) it became very hard and very dense… is this normal? is this cake meant to be consumed quickly?

    the taste is real good. i love it. will try again. thanks you !!

    1. It has become dense because you didn’t use all the eggs that the recipe requires. They make it light and sponge like. The eggs and coconut flour thick to a lovely cake batter consistency. If it doesn’t work for you, try another coconut flour. I make this all the time so I know the ratios work (in fact my kids make it too). I’m glad you loved the taste, now let’s see if we can get the texture to improve for you.

      1. Thanks Libby!
        Yes I think it’s my coconut flour… it absorbs much less liquid.
        The batter was actually quite runny and watery (this time I used 3.5 eggs).
        I have bought a 4lb-bag though! So I will try another brand next time 🙂
        Good news:
        This time after taking the cake out from the fridge, I reheat it in the microwave (just 20 seconds) and WOW! Soft and spongy and so yummy!

        PS. your pancake is super easy-to-make and I never need to search recipe for pancake anymore! Thanks!!

  32. LESLIE HURLEY says:

    This recipe is an eggy, horrible mess

    1. It shouldn’t be, at all. Did you add enough vanilla and sweetener? Let’s see if we can figure out what went wrong, this is one of the most popular cakes here, and once you figure how to work with coconut flour, it’s amazing.

  33. Hi Libby, have made this cake in the past several times with great success but hadn’t in almost a year. Made it today and noticed the batter was super liquidy and it didn’t come out properly at all, I felt like the amount of coconut flour wasn’t enough and when I checked my printed copy of your recipe before it was updated, it said 1/2 cup coconut flour and the recipe online now says 50g. Is that an error? 50g is a lot less than 1/2 cup isn’t it?

    1. 1/2 cup weighs 50g. I prefer to cook by weight as the cup you may have used previously, may have been packed firmly so was more than 50g. Coconut flour can also vary from batch to batch and the humidity in your kitchen. I know in summer when it is more humid, I may have to add an extra tablespoon to account for the fact that the coconut flour may have already absorbed some moisture from the air. Just add an extra tablespoon at a time until it is the desired thickness. Coconut flour can be a fickle flour to bake with sometimes. 🙂

  34. Karo Beyers says:

    What a delicious cake! Initially I thought it may not be sweet enough, but I sprinkled a little bit of capitol icing sugar over it and wowzer! Exactly what I was craving 🙂

  35. This is the absolute best cake. I have made it 3 times in 3 weeks, turned out every time! Very nice texture, please don’t skimp on the eggs.

  36. Made this today exactly to the recipe and it tasted way to eggy. Wasn’t very pleasant. Any tips on how to improve?

    1. I add plenty of vanilla and sweetener. In the post, I discuss this is the best way to ensure coconut flour recipes (which are egg heavy) and always TASTE before baking, that way you can ensure it tastes great before baking. Never throw and not-s-perfect baking away, you can always rescue them by serving with sweetened whipped cream.

  37. 5 stars
    This cake is amazing. I add some orange zest and top it off with whipped cream. I have made it for non Keto friends and they’ve loved it. Thank you for sharing this yummy recipe

  38. There is no mention of what size pan to use. Since baking is a chemistry experiment the size is a crucial factor. There is one comment asking this question but the answer is not from Libby at Ditch the Carbs.

    So what size pan is best Libby?

    1. Hiya Kay. I cooked this in an 18cm/7inch diameter cake tin. If you have a different size tin, that’s fine, just watch it cooking towards the end and monitor if you need a shorter cooking time (for larger tins and hence thinner cakes) or longer (for smaller tins and hence taller cakes). Hope that helps 🙂

  39. 1 star
    I don’t usually review recipes but had to do this one, it was absolutely revolting, this is baking gone wrong. Too many eggs it’s practically a sweet omlette with berries. Disgusting.
    And as a baker I do know what tastes go together and none of these do. Minimum amount of coconut flour and ridiculous amount of eggs is vile.
    Would not recommend this to anybody and god forbid serve it to family and friends, it went straight in the bin !

    1. Thank you for the honest and frank review. Have you used coconut flour before? The ratio of eggs to coconut flour is correct. Coconut flour is brilliant because you use so little and it swells and expands with the addition of moisture.

  40. Don’t know if you’ll see this, since it’s been a while since the recipe posted. But I think I know what the issue is with people complaining about the egg issue. Your recipe calls for “8 eggs-medium”. In America, the standard sized egg is “large”. So if people are using 8 large eggs, it would be too much liquid and way too eggy. You’d need 5-6 large eggs. I’m not sure exactly how many because the conversion chart I found didn’t go up as high as 8 medium eggs. If I were making the recipe, I’d do a more thorough search to get a more exact conversion.

    1. 5 stars
      Thank you, Linda. Yes, this is exactly why I stipulate the size of eggs that I use so depending on which country you live, and which size eggs are standard, everyone can calculate (or guesstimate) how many eggs to use. It’s not an exact science, and even eggs from the same chicken can vary form week to week, but hopefully, it will help make successful baking results.

  41. 4 stars
    I just made and sampled this delicious sponge cake! I used 5 large eggs and fresh blackberries and baked it in a square 8×8 pan lined with parchment. Took about 30 min to cook and I cut it into 9 equal squares. It is delicious and will be a regular treat for me from now on.

  42. 5 stars
    I made this cake today. It is surprisingly good for a cake without traditional flour! I envision using this recipe as a base for a low carb holiday trifle, with berry compote and custard. Trifle has always been my favorite dessert for Christmas. So I am thrilled to have a viable option that will not knock me off my low carb journey. Thank you so much for this gift!!!

    1. 5 stars
      I’m happy to help you on your low-carb journey and I am delighted that you love this coconut flour cake. I often use the basic recipe for other low-carb desserts such as keto tiramisu too.
