Making single-serve Victoria sponges have never been easier! Plus these are a lot healthier than the typical British dessert because they are 100% keto-approved, sugar-free and gluten-free.

We've got a simple keto mug cake base from our Keto Tres Leches Mug Cake recipe topped with Chunky Sugar-Free Strawberry Jam, lightly sweetened whipped cream and fresh strawberries.

Tips & Substitutions

You will need to have the strawberry jam ready but even if you don't it doesn't take too long to make from scratch. Or if you're short on time, you can just mash 2 to 3 strawberries with a teaspoon of powdered sweetener.

There's always more low-carb recipes you can use instead of our Chunky Sugar-Free Strawberry Jam:

If you don't have a microwave, bake the base in the oven. Simply divide the batter between 4 ramekins and bake in the oven preheated to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional) for 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked in the centre.

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

Mug Cakes:


  1. Prepare the mug cakes. Whisk the liquid ingredients: almond milk, melted butter, eggs and vanilla extract. Individual Keto Victoria Sponge Cakes
  2. Add all of the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and granulated sweetener. Whisk again. Individual Keto Victoria Sponge Cakes
  3. Divide the mixture between 4 ramekins. Microwave each one for 90 seconds or up to 2 minutes, checking half way.
  4. When all of the mug cakes are done, carefully flip onto a chopping board (they will be hot) and let them cool down completely before slicing in half widthwise and filling. Individual Keto Victoria Sponge Cakes
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Whip the cream with the remaining sweetener until stiff peaks form. Slice the strawberries.
    Note: If you don't have any strawberry jam ready, check the recipe tips for quick options. Individual Keto Victoria Sponge Cakes
  6. Fill the cooled Victoria sponge cakes with the jam and whipping cream. Finally topped with sliced strawberries and the remaining half of sponge cake.
  7. Serve immediately or refrigerate for a few hours for a firmer set. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
    Tip: These mug cakes won't be even. Make sure to assemble the cake with the bottom part cut side down and then top with the other half cut side up so the uneven surface is inside the cake. Individual Keto Victoria Sponge Cakes

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I had made the strawberry chia basil jam yesterday with plan to try this recipe for the 4th of July.  They turned out great! I generally avoid the keto desserts because they are "too" good and this recipe only makes 4 which is perfect!

Oh I love that strawberry jam, I'm glad you enjoyed!
