Today, I have a delightful recipe for you: Keto-fied Cranberry and Brandy Cake.

I’ve just finished baking and decorating a cake for my own Valentine, and I couldn’t wait to share the recipe with you. And the amazing part is yet to come. Actually, there are two. 🙂

Firstly, this is an absolutely vegetarian cake, no eggs at all. Secondly, this is my version of a plum cake as it has a shot of brandy in it. And please don’t start feeling guilty about. Stop bothering about can we, should we, what ifs?
Remember that it’s Valentine’s Day—a time to celebrate life, joy, and love.

Of course, I understand that you may not have cranberries or brandy on hand, and that’s perfectly fine. You can simply omit them if needed. The same goes for the icing—it’s optional, but personally, I highly recommend giving it a try. However, please note that the nutritional values I’ll provide later are calculated without the icing.

Without further ado, let’s start making the Keto-fied version of Cranberry and Brandy Cake.



1. Pre-heat the oven at 350 degrees Celsius. About an hour before you start the prep, soak your cranberries in brandy and keep them aside.

2. In the blender, first add the grounded almonds, grounded flax seeds and the baking powder and soda. Blend for a minute.

5. Now you need to add the Greek yogurt and blend for a minute or so, until a fine consistency is reached.

8. Oil the dish you want to bake the cake in and drop the batter in it.

9. Since it was Valentine’s I added a food color, which said red on the outside. But on adding it, my batter turned orange.

10. My oven does not go beyond 250 degrees Celsius. So I baked at 250 degrees for 15 minutes and later at 180 degrees for another 15 minutes. Check with a tooth pick if it is cooked in the middle.

11. Allow the cake to cool overnight before doing anything to it.

12. In the morning, I tried covering it with whipped cream with a drop of stevia added to it. You can also keep it plain. Kept it in the fridge for a few hours.

13. Once the cream was set, I dusted Hershey’s Cocoa on it and allowed that to set too.

14. Lastly, I had these cake decorations at home, which were perfect for this occasion. And they are for my beau, and they do have sugar, I hope will be delighted with the effect.
