Almond Lemon Sandwich Cakes

Keto Recipes > Dessert

Happy Valentines Day to all my ketogenic friends out there! So, I know you’ve probably not made anything for your significant other, and now you’re scratching your head on what epic treat to make. Well, nobody wants roses anymore – it’s too easy, so put some work into it and give him/her something they’ll really like! Keto-approved, of course.

These almond lemon cakes are superb. I had some icing left from the Red Velvet Fried Donuts yesterday and decided to use it. Actually, they inspired me for most of this recipe. The frying, the lemon, and..well the icing is a given. But truly, they’re great and they’ll make a great Valentines Day gift!

The frying part isn’t necessary, so I left the extra butter out of the macros. It IS recommended, however, as it adds a great crispy and crunchy texture to the outside of the cakes. Taking a nice bite of one of these cakes with a few pistachios inside will give you a fantastic texture.

So, go and do what you gotta do! Enjoy your V-day with your significant other and stay keto friendly 🙂 Let me know what you ate for keto V-day in the comments below!
