Low Carb Brown Butter Cake

Deliciously Easy Low Carb Brown Butter Cake

Have you noticed how much I love adding butter to my recipes? Well, this low carb brown butter cake takes my love of butter to a whole other level. If what you are looking for is a rich low carb sponge cake with the taste that one butter that has been browned can impart, you are in for a major treat.

For The Love Of Butter

I think I have been using more butter lately because my body is actually craving healthy fats now that I use fat for fuel. This is fascinating to me since I spent the greater part of my life running away from dietary fat and eating a very low-fat diet. On a low carb keto diet healthy fats play a major role, so the fact that I am now craving fats is a sign that my body knows instinctually what it needs and is becoming fat adapted.

My low carb brown butter cake is a cross between a sponge cake and a pound cake. It’s probably one of my easiest recipes and yet it’s packed with flavor because of all that delicious brown butter. If your a fan of pound cakes I encourage you to check out our Low Carb Cream Cheese Pound Cake 

Finding delicious ways to add more add healthy fats to my diet makes sense for me since my primary fuel is now fat versus glucose. Eating a low carb high health fat diet means I can enjoy plenty of butter with no guilt whatsoever.


The keto diet has had a sudden rise in popularity and just about every where you go you hear the word keto. Why are people flocking to a ketogenic way of eating? Mainly, because it’s a very effective way to lose weight. However, that’s only one of its many benefits. A Keto diet helps improve your metabolism, reduce inflammation and enhance cognitive function.

Benefits Of Healthy Fats

People are becoming aware of this way of eating because so many people are seeing major results on it. What about the amazing foods you can eat on this plan? I mean if the idea of having a low carb brown butter cake doesn’t appeal to you, I don’t know what will.

Randy and I know the benefits first-hand of a keto diet, as it was the very tool God pointed us to when we were desperately seeking a solution to transform our health. You can read more about our personal journey on Our About Page.

When we changed our diet, we began to understand ketosis and the role it played in our health.

Ketosis Is Not Ketoacidosis

Lack of knowledge has caused many people to still confuse the pathological process of ketoacidosis with a natural and beneficial state of ketosis.

Ketoacidosis happens when our body is extremely deficient in insulin due to diabetes 1 or 2, because blood sugar level are extremely high and uncontrolled. In the state of ketosis, the blood sugar is low and stable, there is a stark difference between the two.

What Forms Ketones?

Well, I’m glad you asked. We were created to use two major energy sources for energy. We can burn glucose (sugar) or ketones (fat). Most of the population uses glucose as their primary fuel. They rarely tap into their ketones and therefore never see the benefits.

The main issue is that as a glucose burner they constantly give their bodies a steady stream of sugar, starches and proteins through a high carb diet. Unless they are in a fasted state they simply never see the power of ketones in their blood stream.

But what if you can eat delicious recipes like my low carb brown butter cake and enter into ketosis? Wouldn’t you want to learn about this keto diet?

Hindrances To Ketosis

The large amount of carbohydrates in our modern diets blocks ketone production. In contrast a low-carb keto diet that is moderate in protein, high in healthy fats helps produce ketones and use that as a more efficient fuel source.

How? By breaking down the fatty-acids into ketone bodies, specifically acetoacetate, acetone and beta-hydroxy-butyrate. These ketones are released into the blood stream through our liver once insulin levels are low and the hepatic liver metabolism increases.

All that fancy science just means that when we reduce our carbohydrate levels and raise our healthy fats, we can produce ketones endogenously (produced inside our bodies) Like and capitalize on its health benefit

 Our Best Keto Tip

Experience the power of ketones with keto//OS

Unfortunately, doing so is not exactly easy. Especially, when you are aiming to be in ketosis around the clock, like Randy and I strive for.

It requires a major diet change and the transition from being a glucose burner to a ketone burner, can bring about unpleasant side effects during the first few weeks. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon to experience headaches, weakness, fatigue and what the ketogenic world has coined the keto-flu in those first weeks.

In other words, it’s not a fun ride transitioning  into using ketones as your main fuel.

Thankfully, there are ways to make the transition easier and the keto lifestyle doable. With the ability to now get ketones exogenously (we can now drink our ketones), and be in  in a state of therapeutic ketosis.

People are experiencing the power of ketones sometimes for the first time. Making our journey to share this conversation much more easier. The testimonials that are coming from the community because of this new technology have been very encouraging.

Randy and I have chosen to promote Prüvit’s Keto//OS because we never want someone to feel that they can’t change their diet because it’s way too challenging. What if we had a tool that could reduce carb cravings, give them appetite suppression and energy that is not a strain on their adrenal glands? Why not offer a tool that can allow for a smooth transition?

The very first ingredient in Keto//OS is beta-hydroxy-butyrate, the actual ketone bodies. It just goes to show how it is such a high level product. For more information on how keto//OS works,  watch this short 4 minute video and reach out to us for assistance via our contact page below.
