WHAT SWEETENER TO USE IN THIS KETO CARROT CAKE RECIPE?

I sweeten with swerve (organic and all natural!).. You can also use regular erythritol or another keto-approved sweetener.

Erythritol -Erythritol, made from fermented corn or cornmeal, is a polyol that occurs naturally in small amounts in fruits and mushrooms such as grapes, melons, and mushrooms. It is only partially absorbed and digested by the intestinal tract, which can cause gastrointestinal upset in some people.

Fruit of the Monk -Although it comes from a round, green fruit that has grown for centuries in Southeast Asia, the monk fruit is a relatively new sugar substitute on the market. Also known as luo han guo, the monk fruit is often dried for use in herbal teas, soups, and broths in Asian medicine. In northern Thailand and southern China the monks were in charge of cultivating it, hence the popular name it has received.


Xylitol-If you chew sugarless gum, you are probably chewing xylitol. It is the most common sugar-free sweetener in commercial gum and mouthwash.

Like erythritol, xylitol is a polyol derived from plants. It is produced commercially from the woody and more fibrous parts of the ears of corn and birch trees through a multi-stage chemical extraction process. The result is a granular crystal that tastes like sugar but is not sugar.

Xylitol is low in carbohydrates, but it does not contain zero carbohydrates. On a ketogenic diet, xylitol can add a lot of carbohydrates very quickly, so it is not a very good option.

Allulose– In 2015, allulose was approved as a low-calorie sweetener and was released for sale. It is classified as an “uncommon sugar” as it is found naturally in few foods, such as wheat, raisins, and figs. Although it has a molecular structure identical to fructose, the body is not able to metabolize allulose. Instead, it passes into the urine almost entirely without being absorbed, resulting in negligible amounts of carbohydrates and calories.

CAN YOU FREEZE CARROT CAKE?

Yes, you can freeze the carrot cake. It is not uncommon to see frozen carrot cakes on supermarket shelves, and you too can bake and freeze a carrot cake beforehand without a problem. The moisture of the cake should not be affected if the cake is wrapped and stored properly. As for the icing, you can freeze the already iced cake, or put on the icing after defrosting. Your call. To freeze the carrot cake,

HOW TO STORE AND FREEZE KETO CARROT CAKE

First bake the cake according to your famous recipe. Then let the cake cool completely. This part is very important, because if the cake is still warm when you put it in the freezer it will become soft and sticky after defrosting. 

Let the cake cool very well first. To freeze carrot cake without ice, wrap the cake tightly in a double layer of plastic wrap, and then again in another layer of aluminum foil. Place in the freezer where it will not crush. 

You can also put it in a specially designed cake box that will keep the cake protected. To defrost to, simply remove from freezer and allow to defrost at room temperature for several hours or until completely thawed. Ice the cake with your favorite frosting. To freeze the frozen carrot cake, place the unwrapped cake with ice in the freezer for about an hour, or until the icing is set. 

Then wrap the cake in plastic wrap followed by a layer of aluminum foil, or place in a cake box. To defrost, Remove the foil and plastic wrap after removing the cake from the freezer so that the icing does not cling to it once thawed. 

Let the cake thaw on the counter for several hours or overnight until it is completely thawed. Pre-frozen carrot cake should be eaten within 2-3 days for optimal freshness.
