This keto vanilla cake recipe is the easiest low-carb dessert I have made so far!

Last summer I made a life changing decision. I decided to try the keto diet and successfully lost 30 pounds! Changing the way I ate made me a better person all around. I feel better, I look better, and I enjoy cooking meals for my family because I know it is healthy.

One of the hardest challenges when eating low-carb is NO SUGAR! I love dessert and every night I want something sweet and delicious. I am always on Pinterest looking for new keto friendly desserts.

The first one of these cakes I made was for a friends birthday. It came out so good I wanted to share it with you all. Here is a picture of her birthday cake!
