Low carb almond flour coffee cake with a ribbon of cream cheese and studded with fresh raspberries. This might just be my most popular coffee cake recipe!


Cake Batter

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 6 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated Swerve Sweetener
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp liquid stevia extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk


  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated Swerve Sweetener
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp liquid stevia extract
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh raspberries, rinsed and dried


  • 2 tbsp sliced almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 325F and grease a 9-inch square baking pan (you can also use an 8x8 pan, but you will need to bake the cake for longer).
  2. For the cake batter, combine almond flour, coconut flour and baking powder in a medium bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, beat butter with granulated sweetener until well combined. Beat in eggs, almond extract and stevia extract.
  4. Beat in half of almond flour mixture, then beat in almond milk. Beat in remaining almond flour mixture until combined. Scrape down sides of bowl and beaters as needed. Set aside while making the filling.
  5. For the filling, beat cream cheese with granulated sweetener until smooth. Beat in egg, vanilla extract and stevia extract until well combined.
  6. To assemble the cake, spread about two thirds of the batter in prepared baking pan, smoothing the top with a knife or an offset spatula.
  7. Pour cream cheese mixture over batter in pan and sprinkle with raspberries. Dot the remaining batter over the filling in small spoonfuls, allowing some of the filling to peek through. Sprinkle with sliced almonds.
  8. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until top is light golden brown and filling is just set. Remove and let cool completely, then transfer to refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour.
  9. Keep refrigerated until served.
