Keto Cubic Cake? Wait, what is a cubic?
“A volume that is made by a cube that is 1 meter on each side. Its symbol is m3. It is equal to 1000 (one thousand) liters. Example: A box that is 2 meters wide, 2 meters long and 0.25 meters deep has a volume of 2×2×0.25 = 1 m3″.
Is this 1 cubic meter of a cake?
No, 😀 but it can be if you’d like to increase the volume! The beauty of assembling a cake made of small cubes is in the possibility to shape it in any amorph shape and still have it looking attractive. I remembered a similar cake from the long-gone carby years when baking a cake was my weekly routine. Luckily, after almost two years of Keto baking, I developed recipes and solutions which can compete with unhealthy, but great-looking carby cakes.
Repetition is… the mother of learning
It’s not about Keto baking tricks, it’s about when and how to have Keto cake! In fact, Keto cake can be utilised in a positive way! First, it will cut the cravings and at one point you’ll not want a cake at all. This really happened to me! After making so many Keto cakes, I came to the point where I just want to serve them to others. I can’t even eat it because I had enough great Keto food in my main meal.
But, A Keto cake is only good if it has mega-healthy and nutrient-dense ingredients. Furthermore, it’s really Keto if it has less than 4g net carbs per slice. This is the only way you can judge a recipe if it’s meant to fit your Keto Medi lifestyle.
How do you start with this cubic project?
After you baked this perfect chocolate sponge cake, all you need to do is cut it into small cubes. This is why I call it Keto cubic cake! Try making real cubes just to stay on the geometric point of this story! Of course, you don’t have to be 100% precise, but try to make it approximate.
You don’t have to use the same pan as I did, the volume will be the same, and your cake might end up taller or thinner. Once the cake is baked, you will measure the height you got and then cut the cubes into the approximately same length and width. For example, if your cake turned out to be 2 cm (1 inch) tall, that’s gonna be your cutting square size. So, you’ll end up with 4 square cm cubes! Then, while your cubes are cooling, (and this will speed up the cooling) you will prepare one of your favourite Keto cake fillings and use it as your “concrete”
Making The Keto cubic cake filling
Cake filling in the world of Ketonia is prepared with fatty ingredients. Regardless of your choice, let your filling be the leader in this case. Make a lot of it and make sure it’s thick enough to allow you the buildup! Now, if you decide to follow my exact recipe, make sure you have the top quality ingredients because you want your Keto cubic cake to be nutritious and healthy! Furthermore, you want it to impress both Ketonians and Non-Ketonians. In fact, when I get a compliment from a carboholic person, then I know that my Keto cake is really great. Not only healthy but also seductive for those who still rely on sugar for pleasure 😉
This cake was tasted by a long term Ketonian (Apollonas) and Non-Ketonian and the Non-Ketonian liked it even more! Ketonian thought it was too sweet, which is natural. I will, therefore, reduce the amount of sweetener in the recipe. You can adjust the amount, but definitely don’t overdo…
When it comes to sweetewner on Keto-Less is more has never sounded better!
The secret of a perfect homemade chocolate icing
There’s no need to use industrial sugar-free chocolate filled with all sorts of additives, emulsifiers and emulators. All you need is organic cacao powder, butter and cream – the rest is some spices! Healthier and easier than melting industrial chocolate.
Use your best tools – your hands!
Once you’ve dipped your cubes into your wonderful keto filling, you will be assembling the cake with your hands. Be creative here… Create any shape you want. It doesn’t have to be perfect. In the end, when you cut it, the cubes will do the trick 😉
So, shall we be making this Keto cubic cake? You will see that it’s much easier than it looks!
