KETO CHOCOLATE ECLAIR CAKE

KETO CHOCOLATE ECLAIR CAKE. Made with keto graham crackers and filled with sugar-free pastry cream, this decadent chocolate eclair cake. Pour on some delicious chocolate ganache. It’s a dreamy low-carb dessert!

CAN YOU MAKE THIS IN ADVANCE?

For prepping a day or two ahead, this is a great keto cake. In fact, it firms up when letting it sit overnight and helps and cut into nice slices.

That said, within a few days, it really should be made and consumed. As both the filling and the ganache will change inconsistently, it’s not really a freezable recipe.

Instructions

Pastry Cream Filling

  1. Over medium heat in a medium saucepan, bring the almond milk to a simmer.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks with ½ cup of the powdered sweetener and the salt in a medium bowl until it gets pale yellow.
  3. Slowly, into the yolks, whisk about half of the hot milk to temper them, then back to the saucepan, return the yolk/cream mixture, whisking continuously. Cook until it gets thickened, whisking continuously.
  4. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla extract and butter. Let cool to room temperature.
  5. Beat the heavy whipping cream in a large bowl with the remaining ¼ cup of powdered sweetener until it holds stiff peaks. Into the whipped cream, fold the pastry cream until no streaks remain.

Chocolate Ganache

  1. Over medium heat in a small saucepan, bring the cream to a simmer. Take it away from heat and add the chopped chocolate. To melt, let sit for FIVE minutes.
  2. Add the vanilla and sweetener and whisk until it gets smooth.

To Assemble

  1. With graham crackers, line the bottom of a pan(8×8 inch), cutting to fit as needed. Over the graham crackers, spread half the filling. Repeat with another layer of the remaining filling and graham crackers.
  2. Top with one more layer of graham crackers and over top, spreading to the edges, pour the chocolate ganache. To firm up, refrigerate at least FOUR hours before serving.
