Bollywood actress, Alia Bhatt is a fitness freak and it's no longer a secret. But do you know how much she is in love with her keto diet? The actor even wished her sister Shaheen Bhatt on her last birthday saying that they need to eat keto cake and dance on the sofas! She also had chef Harsh Dixit prepare special keto treats for her to munch on after shoots instead of the usual snacks. Reportedly Huma Qureshi and Karan Johar are other Bollywood celebs who swear by the Keto diet apart from Alia Bhatt. Read on to find out about her Keto diet love and how you can easily make a yummy keto cake in a jiffy.
What Is Keto Diet?
A keto diet or ketogenic diet requires you to have a high amount of fats, an adequate amount of protein and very few carbs in your everyday diet. Having this diet ensures that your body ends up burning more fats as compared to carbohydrates.
So how do you make a healthy keto cake (the words healthy and cake sound funny together but bear with us!)? Let’s check out its recipe:
Healthy Keto Cake Recipe
- Cocoa powder: 2 tbsp
- Sweetener: 1-2 tbsp
- 1 medium egg
- Vanilla essence: 1/2 tsp
- Heavy cream: 1 tbsp
- Baking powder: 1/4 tsp
- Salt: 1 pinch
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix and whisk the cocoa powder with sweetener ensuring there are no clumps. You may buy Hershey's Cocoa Powder from here at a discounted price of ₹ 180.
- In another bowl, beat eggs until they are fluffy enough to make your cake rise. Add this to the cocoa mix along with the cream, vanilla essence, baking powder, and salt. You can buy baking powder from here at ₹ 100
- Brush the baking pan with some cooking oil, pour the batter and bake it for about 10-15 minutes at 350° F. If you are making a mug keto cake then microwave it for 1 minute, check to see if it is solid on top and then microwave again with intervals of 10 seconds until done.

Alia Bhatt Turns Baker!
Alia had also turned chef and baked a cake for her beau Ranbir Kapoor for his birthday and it looked simply scrumptious! The vanilla sponge cake had a pastry cream and pineapple filling with a vanilla bean and cream cheese frosting. It was topped with caramelised pineapple slices. It sure looked like she poured all her love into the cake for the Saanwariya boy who will be seen with her in the upcoming movie Brahmastra.
