This single-serving peanut butter cake is just 3 ingredients and very easy to make. This cake doesn’t require any flour or low carb flour alternatives. The batter takes less than five minutes to prepare and you don’t even need a mixer. This is an easy cake to make when you’re craving something sweet but don’t want to make a full cake.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy dessert, this is it. I love that it can be eaten warm and served with ice cream, sugar-free syrup, or whipped cream.
- Peanut Butter
- The egg provides the structure for this cake. I do not know of a substitute for the egg for this recipe.
- This recipe uses creamy peanut butter. You can use either natural or regular unsweetened peanut butter. Peanut butter can be replaced with almond butter.
- Erythritol can be substituted with Lankanto monkfruit sweetener or Swerve.
Keto Peanut Butter Cake Texture And Flavor
This cake has a very tight crumb, similar to other flourless cakes. It has a strong peanut butter flavor but is not super sweet. It is a little plain to eat on its own, so I recommend serving it with toppings like whipped cream, ice cream, or sugar free syrup.

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cake (Keto, Low Carb)
- 1 large egg
- 2 tbsp (32 g) creamy peanut butter unsweetened
- 1.5 tbsp (18 g) erythritol granular
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease the interior of an 8 oz ramekin or similar sized baking dish.
- Add egg to a medium bowl. Whisk egg vigorously with a whisk for one minute.
- Add in peanut butter and erythritol. Whisk until completely incorporated and batter is smooth. Pour batter into prepared ramekin.
- Bake cake for about 16-20 minutes or until cake has risen and when you apply light pressure on the surface it bounces back. Cake should rise above the ramekin during baking but will sink down and shrink once out of the oven. Let cake cool a few minutes before serving. If desired, plate cake in a smaller ramekin or plate. I plated mine in a smaller ramekin. Serve with your favorite toppings like ice cream, whipped cream or sugar-free syrup.

- The ramekin I used for baking is an 8 oz ramekin that is 3.75 inches wide.
- I used So Nourished erythritol sweetener granular*
