Keto Fruit Cake

Keto Fruit Cake

This keto fruit cake is the perfect replacement for a holiday favorite that fits into the keto diet. It is made by swapping out all purpose flour and sugar with almond flour and monk fruit sweetener. This cake is delicious and the amount of fruit and nuts used is small enough that each piece of cake only has around 6.4 g net carbs. Some preparation is required with grating the orange skin for orange zest and freshly squeezing two oranges for its juice.
