Keto Cake Bites || FAUX Donuts

by hungryelephant

Ok lets be honest. I was ATTEMPTING to make doughnuts but failed, so instead of frying these, I baked them, making keto cake bites!

When I tried to deep fry them, they just fell apart. I had all this batter so figured I’d roll them into balls and bake them more like biscuits. I can tell you right now – they taste exactly like a doughnut would!

However, if you had a doughnut tray or a cake pop tray, you could definitely bake them in there to make the shape right. I sadly have neither.

Anyway, I can’t believe how delicious these actually are and the fact that they have NO eggs? Perfect!

In this recipe, I also used Oooflavors ‘Vanilla Cupcake’ – while it definitely adds a decadent, delicious flavour – it’s not needed. However I highly recommend checking them out!

Would these freeze well?
