· ·

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. 

HOW TO MAKE KETO STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE RECIPE

 Just follow the simple directions below to make this simple low-carb shortcake recipe. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for the full recipe and printable instructions. 

Ingredients:

  • Coconut flour – I use coconut flour in my keto recipes since my oldest daughter is allergic to almonds. 
  • Butter – adds fat to the recipe.
  • Cream cheese – adds fat to the recipe and flavor.
  • Monkfruit Powdered – keto-friendly sweetener
  • Egg white – used as a binder
  • Heavy whipping cream – just a bit goes a long way to give this recipe just the right amount of moisture. 
  • Vanilla extract – I use real vanilla and not imitation for the best flavor. 
  • Baking powder
  • Strawberries – ripe delicious strawberries make this cake amazing.

Step 1: Grease a 6-inch ramekin well, then add butter and cream cheese and melt in the microwave. 

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 make an individual serving without investing a lot of time in the kitchen.

Step 2: Add all other ingredients and whisk together until combined. Then, cook for 90 seconds in the microwave, remove from the dish, and cool. 

Tips for Making Low Carb Strawberry Shortcake

  • Don’t eat this cake without some kind of topping, as I find most keto-type cakes can be 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.

Step 4In a separate bowl, dice strawberries (I used 2 strawberries) and add Monkfruit Powdered. Stir well. The longer you allow your strawberries to soak in the Lakanto Monkfruit Powdered Sweetener, the sweeter they taste.

Step 5: Poke holes in the 90-second cake and spoon strawberries on top.

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 Reddi Whip (if you are okay with the ingredients).

Enjoy! This keto strawberry shortcake is absolutely amazing, and it totally hit the spot.

Can Keto Strawberry Shortcake be Made in Advance?

Sure! You can make it in advance and even allow the fresh strawberries to soak in the sweetener but wait to assemble the shortcake until right before eating. 

Can You Freeze Low Carb Strawberry Shortcake?

The cake base can be made in advance and frozen. You can wrap each one in wax paper then store it in a freezer-safe container so that you can defrost one at a time. 

Can I Use a Different Sweetener?

Yes, you could sub Swerve Confectioners at the same measurement or Besti Monk Fruit and Allulose Blend

    1. It only includes the ingredients listed in the recipe so it is the cake and strawberries.

    2. 5 stars
      I really like recipes for one. It is so easy to overeat desserts, and hard to leave the leftovers alone. This yummy treat is just right, and there are no leftovers calling your name at 9pm! I will be watching for more small-batch or single serving recipe’s!!!

  1. This was amazing! We didn’t have strawberries so we put a few raspberries on top with a bit of homemade whipped cream. The cake was perfect.

    1. Awesome! My mom brought my kids a pound cake with strawberries this weekend when she came to visit. I whipped up this strawberry shortcake instead and it was to totally satisfying.

  2. Thank you for the recipe I made it for my little 2 yo diabetic son for his bday he loves whip cream and strawberries. The cake tasted a bit egg like I wonder how I can fix that?

    1. My 14 yr old daughter has been diabetic since she was 3. From one Type 1 momma to another, I understand our life taking care of our babies. The texture for low carb breads is just very different than their gluten filled full of carbs counterpart.

  3. I keep reading that Swerve doesn’t add carbs to a recipe. What is the nutritional facts on using it.

  4. What are the exact total net carbs? The nutrition info says 8 carbs and 2 g fiber but I’m reading comments that say 3 net carbs? I’m confused

    1. Monkfruit Powdered is a low carb, sugar-free sweetener that is keto-friendly. My other suggestion would be to use Swerve Confectioners.

  5. Can you use anything else besides egg white? I have an inflammatory response to egg whites. I can make a whole egg out of gelatin or chia but since you’re asking for the white only I don’t know how this would work. Thanks

    1. I’ve only fixed the recipe as is so I’m not sure what you could use instead of egg whites.
