  • 1/2 tbsp Nutiva butter flavored coconut oil or olive oil and 1/4 tsp butter flavoring
  • 1 egg or egg substitute
  • Dash vanilla
  • 1 tbsp 2% cottage cheese or fat free Greek yogurt or non-dairy low carb substitute
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup Me Alternative Baking Mix
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp cinnamon
  • monk fruit powder to taste
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder


  • 1-2 tbsp Neufchatel cream cheese
  • dash vanilla
  • monk fruit powder to taste
  • dash cinnamon



  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Melt the coconut oil in the dish you plan to bake the cake in. I use a one cup ramekin or pyrex dish.
  • 3. If using the yogurt option, mix all the cake ingredients in the same bowl you melted the coconut oil in. Add the egg last so it doesn't cook in the hot oil.
  • 4. If using the cottage cheese option, use a food processor, mixer or blender to incorporate the cottage cheese with the other cake ingredients until smooth.
  • 5. Bake cake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


  • 1. Put the cream cheese in an oven safe bowl and heat for the last five minutes the cake is baking.
  • 2. Remove the warm cream cheese from the oven and add in the vanilla, cinnamon, and monk fruit powder to taste. Mix with a spoon until well mixed.
  • 3. Frost the cake with the cream cheese.


  • You can substitute 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp each of coconut flour, almond flour, and golden flax meal for the Me Alternative Baking Mix. (This will slightly change the nutritional values, but will not add significant carbs.)
  • Monk fruit powder is to taste because perception of sweetness can vary by person. Remember, you can easily add more, but you can't take it out. Start small.
  • Cream cheese frosting is optional, as is the amount of cream cheese. I like alot!
  • Cooking times will vary based on different ovens. 
  • I prefer to eat this cake while hot. However it can be stored and eaten later. 
  • If freezing, do not frost the cake before freezing. Frost after defrosted.
