Keto chocolate hazelnut cake is moist and delicious. It has a rich chocolaty flavor from unsweetened cacao powder. 

The hazelnut flour and almond meal give the cake a nutty flavor. The result is a delicious cake filled with chocolate and hazelnut flavor. 

Additionally, this keto chocolate hazelnut cake is also sugar-free. I used stevia to make the chocolate hazelnut cake. However, you can use any granular sweetener you have on hand. 

What’s The Difference Between A Loaf Cake And A Regular Cake

Loaf cakes are baked in loaf pans. Additionally, loaf cakes have a denser texture. 

In contrast, regular cakes are baked in round or square pans. They also have a lighter texture. 

Are Hazelnuts Keto

Yes, hazelnuts are keto. They are a low-carb carb option that’s perfect for snacking and making cakes. One ounce of hazelnuts contains 4.7 grams of carbs and 1.9 net carbs. So you can enjoy them without worrying about eating too many carbs.

Can I Make Chocolate Hazelnut Cake Without Xanthan Gum

Technically, you can make hazelnut chocolate cake without xanthan gum. However, the hazelnut chocolate cake may crumble. 

Because the hazelnut chocolate cake does not contain gluten, it has nothing to bind and hold the cake together. Xanthan gum helps bind the cake together and prevents it from falling apart. 

If you do not like xanthan gum, you can use another gluten-free binder. Guar gum, flaxseeds, ground chia seeds, and psyllium husk powder are great substitutes for xanthan gum. 

How To Store Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

You can store the hazelnut chocolate cake at room temperature for 1-2 days. Make sure you wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and place it into an airtight container. This will prevent the bread from drying out. 

You can also store the hazelnut chocolate cake in the fridge for 3-5 days. 

How To Freeze Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

To freeze the hazelnut chocolate cake, wrap it in plastic wrap and place it into a zip lock bag. Freeze the hazelnut chocolate cake for up to 3 months.
