Low Carb Pumpkin Cake!

Low Carb

It’s fall, y’all! Or at least it feels like it here in Pennsylvania! Along with cooler weather, football, knee high boots and longer sleeves- what else is there? PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING. Adam and I look forward to September 1 every year for everything pumpkin related. This year, my dear friend Sarah, who is rockin’ at the keto lifestyle, needed a keto friendly birthday cake, and I stumbled across one at  Keto In the City.   I really wouldn’t call this a birthday cake, but instead a super-awesome autumn cake.

I made a few adjustments, and I am calling it a low carb pumpkin cake because it was difficult to locate some of the keto sweeteners that the recipe requires. This can easily be made keto, just switch out your sweetener! These are great for breakfast or dessert!
