Strawberry season means I am craving a good Keto Strawberry Shortcake Recipe. Since berries are one of the fruits that are lowest in carbs, I knew I could tweak my 90-second bread recipe to make a shortcake base that would be perfect for fresh, flavorful berries all season long.
Keto Strawberry Shortcake Recipe
My very favorite dessert is Strawberry Shortcake. My grandmother used to make a six layer strawberry shortcake that was out of this world. With the weather warming up, I’m starting to see fresh strawberries everywhere, which of course makes me start thinking about keto/low carb foods with berries.
So far, I’ve made a Lemon Berry Fluff and Mixed Berry Muffins that turned out fantastic! The other day cravings for a Strawberry Shortcake hit me out of nowhere, so I started experimenting with a keto friendly 90-second cake recipe version. It took many different trials and errors in my test kitchen for this Keto Strawberry Shortcake before settling on THE ONE.
When a sweet craving hits, you’ll be shocked to see how fast you can whip up this delicious 90-Second Keto Strawberry Shortcake using the microwave oven. With just a few ingredients, it’s nice to be able to make an individual serving without having to invest a lot of time in the kitchen.
Tip: I wouldn’t eat this cake without some kind o topping as I find most keto type cakes are generally dry due to the keto friendly flours we use in keto desserts. Don’t worry, fresh strawberries and whipping cream come to the rescue and make this cake moist and delicious. Take note: It’s important to make this cake very thin. I used a 6″ glass dish. Other cakes that I made that were thicker didn’t turn out as moist.
Tip: The longer you allow your strawberries to soak in the Lakanto Monkfruit Powered Sweetener the sweeter they taste.
I think this Keto Strawberry Shortcake is even better if you pop it in the fridge for a little while so that the strawberry juice saturates into the cake before adding the whipping cream. You can top the Low Carb Strawberry Shortcake with homemade sugar-free whipped cream or sugar-free RediWhip (if you are okay with the ingredients).
Have you ever seen anything more keto-glorious? Is that even a word? I’m sure it wasn’t until I made this Keto Strawberry Shortcake. Now I know for sure that this is a way of life I could stick to forever and ever! Strawberry Shortcake is one of my very favorite desserts and now I can make a keto friendly version quickly when the cravings hit.
