These easy keto cake donuts taste similar to traditional cake donuts. They’re fried in either avocado or coconut oil and have all the delicious flavor and tender moist crumb of bakery donuts.

Since I’m the only one in the house that follows a keto lifestyle, I’ve actually created 3 versions of this recipe, a full dozen, a half dozen, and tiny batch (of just 3!). I’d hate to have all these delicious donuts hanging around, calling my name.

If you’d like, you can glaze these by mixing 2 tablespoons of powdered sweetener of your choice, 1 tsp of cinnamon, and a couple of drops of almond milk or heavy cream. Dip the lightly warm donuts in the glaze and let them rest 5 minutes before enjoying.

Combine all of the dry ingredients together, use a whisk to ensure they’re lump free and well combined.

Overturn the dough onto a Silpat or silicone baking mat. This prevents the need for additional fats, oils, or ingredients. The dough is tacky, but not too sticky to form on the mat.

Donut Frosting & Glaze Ideas

If you prefer your donut to be glazed or frosted, here are several ideas that taste lovely. A nice trick to glazing donuts is to place the donuts on a cooling rack, then set the cooling rack on a baking sheet that has been lined with foil or parchment paper. This ensures easy cleanup! Simply drizzle the glaze over the donuts, allow it to harden completely before enjoying.
