I’m not a fan of the Atkins diet, but I really love the Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake recipe, so I thought I’d share the recipe with you. This is one of my favorite recipes because it’s so easy to make and the cake tastes so good. It’s also low in carbs and uses superfoods like lemons, poppy seeds, and coconut oil.
Unlike other ketogenic recipes that use almond flour, this recipe requires coconut flour. This has a deeper, more pronounced flavor than almond flour. Also, the coconut flour results in a denser batter, so you will need to bake this cake for longer. Also, you will need to use the microplane to grate the zest.

Don’t let the amount of ingredients in this cake put you off!
This is a low-carb homemade dessert that is easy to make and uses mostly basic ingredients if you follow the keto diet, such as almond flour, coconut flour, butter, cream cheese and almond milk.
For the lemon glaze, I used syrup as a sugar substitute and syrup for the batter. However, you can use the sweetener as you see fit and adjust the amount to suit your taste.

Other helpful tips for success:
- Use a little xanthan gum in the batter, as it gives the cake a better texture.
- I used almond milk, but you can also use canned coconut milk if you like.
- I used a lot of lemon peel, but you can also use lemon extract.
- I wouldn’t miss the light lemon glaze because it adds so much flavor!
- You can omit the poppy seeds or sprinkle them over the cake to save up to 0.5 grams of carbs per serving.
