Not all incredibly delicious desserts have to be bad for your health! This perfectly decadent Keto Chocolate Walnut Cake is also healthy, gluten free and low carb! The recipe is inspired by the famous Bulgarian Garash cake which is a local favourite. In this post you will find out how to make a Garish-like chocolate walnut layer cake in a healthy, keto version.
What is a Garash cake
The original Garash cake is made with walnut layers and thick chocolate frosting. There are several recipe variations of Garash but I found that they can be separated in two main kinds:
1. The first kind does not call for chocolate as an ingredient. The layers are made most commonly with walnuts + egg whites + in some cases part of the egg yolks + sugar. The frosting is made of yolks, cocoa powder, butter and sugar. The downside of this method, in my view, is the presence of uncooked yolks in the frosting: something that I don’t approve in my recipes.
