In my humble opinion, a well-made coffee cake should have a rich crumb topping. Which is why my low carb coffee cakes have a generous crumb to cake ratio. You may have tried my first coffee cake recipe and may be wondering why I would create another. Especially since I raved about my first one to the point that it had me dancing in my kitchen. Well, because you can’t have too much of a good thing, right?
Yes, I was head of heals in love with my first low carb coffee cake recipe, but I wanted to try creating one that used sour cream. Most traditional coffee cakes use sour cream to give it that added richness that is typical coffee cake. Plus, it gave me an excuse to create another low carb coffee cake to share with you.
I hope you will give both my low carb coffee cake recipes a try, since they were both created out of a place of love. It’s my desire to give you low carb recipes that make this lifestyle easier. Let me know which one you enjoy more. I always love hearing from you.

Low Carb Sour Cream Cinnamon Coffee Cake
2 cups of almond flour finely milled
1 ¼ cup of sugar substitute
2 tablespoons of baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of sea salt
¼ teaspoon of baking soda
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
½ cup (1 stick) melted butter cooled
1 cup of sour cream
Low Carb Crumb Topping
1 cup of almond flour (I used finely milled)
½ cup of coconut flour
½ cup of sugar substitute (I used Swerve)
½ cup of your favorite low carb nuts (I used pecans)
½ cup (1 stick) cold butter sliced thinly
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon of sea salt
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-inch spring-form cake pan.
- Make the crumb topping: In a small bowl, combine the sugar substitute, almond flour, coconut flour, pecan nuts, salt and cinnamon. To the dry ingredients add I thinly sliced cold butter and cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
- Cake batter: In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, sugar substitute, spices, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt. In a small bowl, stir the cooled melted butter, sour cream, and eggs until they are well combined. Fold the butter & sour cream mixture into the batter dry ingredients. Mix until well incorporated. Spread the batter into the spring-form pan and sprinkle the crumb topping over the cake.
- Bake the cake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the crumbs are lightly browned and until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
- Cool the cake for 20 minutes before slicing and serving.
