KETO / Sugar-Free, Low Carb / Chocolate Chiffon Cake

I am suffering from chronic neck pain and it's debilitating. Pain meds makes me rather forgetful and sleepy as well.  I thank God for His wonderful grace and mercy that has brought me through the difficult times.. 

These days I am starting to feel better, well enough to bake a chiffon cake on weekend.  

Since I have friends on KETO diet and diabetic.  I thought it would be great to create a sugar-free low carb chiffon cake for them. 

God must have been gracious to me as I managed to get my chocolate chiffon recipe right on first try.  :)  I was very happy when the cake didn't' fall out of the pan upside down..(simple things like this makes me!)  I tested it again & again to make sure the chiffon cake remained stuck to the pan when turned upside  

I'm sharing my recipe with all those who has requested on Facebook.

Glad to know you are better now, Faithy. Chronic pain is really no joke.
The chiffon looks beautiful...the crumb is simply perfect.

p.s what kind of coconut flour did you use? The ground coconut flakes, or the defatted coconut flour?

Hi Angie, I used Bob Mills coconut flour ... not flakes for sure.
