I made this with the King Arthur Keto cake mix and used monkfruit in the cinnamon swirl. It didn’t really swirl due to the consistency of the cake batter, though it was really tasty. Instead of the icing here, I used a keto-ized copycat of the Cinnabon icing.
I will make this again. Probably multiple times.
I really wanted to make this delicious looking cake but, four cups of sugar!!! Whoa!
