This Keto Cannoli Poke Cake recipe brings all the delicious of a cannoli into cake form. It is a nut-free, low carb, and sugar-free cake made with coconut flour that is only 3 net carbs per serving. It is then soaked with a sugar-free sweetened condensed milk and topped with heavy whipped cream topping.
Cannoli Poke Cake is a delicious keto cake recipe that you can enjoy after dinner. I like to save it for special occasions that call for a cake. This rich and decadent keto cake recipe is perfect for potlucks and reunions, and also makes a delicious keto birthday cake.
For the love of Cannoli
Can you believe I never ate a Cannoli until we moved to the Albany, NY area? My workplace at the time brought in treats from a local Italian bakery and I happened to choose the Cannoli. It was so delicious, I immediately fell in love with that incredible ricotta filling.
As a child, I loved to get my fingers in a can of sweetened condensed milk. I would have eaten it by the spoonful if my mother had let me. I thought that was all over for me once I started the keto diet. That is until I discovered this sugar-free condensed milk recipe.
As soon as I realized I could make my own condensed milk, I decided I needed to make a Cannoli poke to fit the low carb diet. While the ingredient list looks long, it is really not hard to make at all (see the video!) and it is well worth it.
What you need to make Keto Cannoli Poke Cake
Coconut Flour: You won’t need too much of this. A little bit of coconut flour goes a long way.
Eggs: I always use large eggs in my baking recipes
Make the condensed milk the day before you will be making the cake to save time. It will be a little thicker after setting and easier to spread over the top of the cake. You will use the entire recipe of condensed milk for this cake.
Bring the mascarpone cheese to room temperature before using it.
Allow the cake to cool completely before poking the holes in the cake.
Use a straw for poking the cake holes, it works much better than a wooden spoon handle.
Variations and substitutes
Mascarpone cheese is best, but you can substitute cream cheese if the mascarpone is hard to find.
Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to the flour mixture for a chocolate and cinnamon flavored cake.
