Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Grease an 8-inch cake pan and lay a circular layer of parchment paper to the bottom, for easy removal.
In a large mixing bowl, add your eggs and softened butter, and whisk until combined and smooth. Add the vanilla extract and liquid stevia, and mix until combined.
Slowly add in the almond flour and cocoa powder, until just combined. Whisk in the baking soda and the salt. The batter should be thick.
Transfer the keto cake batter into the lined pan. Bake the cake for 18-20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out 'just' clean. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cool, frost, if desired.
* Do not use flax or chia eggs. This has been tested using a pre-formulated egg substitute. Use the equivalent of 4 eggs.** Liquid stevia replaces a full cup of sugar. Be sure to use a good quality baking liquid stevia. TO STORE: Leftover cake can be stored in the refrigerator, covered. It will keep well for up to 2 weeks.
