Oooey Gooey Butter Cake was always one of my favorite desserts prior to keto – the lemon variety especially! I had no choice but to keto-ize it!!

It the best of both worlds . . . cake AND cheesecake!

I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do!

*Ooey Gooey Lemon Cake *

3 large eggs
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup sf sweetener (I use erythritol or xylitol)
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 true lemon packets

Cream together eggs, butter, vanilla and xylitol.  Beat in coconut flour, salt and baking soda and true lemon. Push mixture down into 9×9 dish.

Beat the following ingredients until creamy and pour on top of uncooked cake mix:

8oz cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sf sweetener (I  use erythritol or xylitol)
2 eggs
2 true lemon packets

Bake at 325 for 30 – 40 min or until top is firm.

    1. Absolutely! I’m not sure of the amounts but I would guess about 1 tbl juice and 1 tbl zest for both the base and the cheesecake topping. Let me know how it turns out!

  1. How many net carbs is this?? I made it and had a piece for breakfast lunch and dinner…. now I was afraid of how many carbs this is so I didn’t eat much else today but I’m super afraid I went over my max for today lol
