How to Make Keto Pound Cake with Almond Flour
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a separate bowl, add in the butter and Swerve confectioners, then whip using a hand mixer until fluffy.
Add in the sour cream and continue mixing.
Add in the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix, just until well combined.
If the top starts to brown too much, gently tent it with foil for the remainder of your baking time.
Once done, allow the cake to cool for about 15 minutes before you turn it on on a cooling rack to completely cool. Because cake made with almond flour is usually very tender, cooling it completely before slicing is an important step to ensure it doesn't break apart.
Can You Have Cake on Keto?
Any cake made with traditional flour and sugar is, without question, is not recommended for Keto or a low carb diet. Pound cake, for instance has approximately 60 grams of carbs per serving! WOW, right? That's a whole lotta carbs for one slice of cake.
But this Keto pound cake, made with almond flour, comes to the rescue! With only 3 net carbs per serving, this gluten free pound cake is a perfect low carb treat. And trust me, you will not feel deprived from enjoying cake when you give this recipe a try.
Does Keto Pound Cake Need to be Refrigerated?
Technically, this pound cake does not have to be stored chilled; however, it will stay fresh longer if kept in the fridge in an air tight container. If you want to make this recipe in advance, it can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
Ways to Enjoy Gluten Free Pound Cake
Wanting to take your Keto pound cake to the next level? Try some of these suggestions for ways to use your new favorite pound cake recipe:
- Ever heard of pound cake French toast? Well, you should give it a try for a super decadent breakfast. Because this recipe already has eggs in the recipe, there's no need for an egg wash. All you have to do it smear room temp butter on sliced pieces of pound cake and sprinkle with a little cinnamon and granular sugar substitute like Allulose or Swerve. Put the buttered pound cake in a warm non-stick skillet and cook until slightly browned. Drizzle with your favorite sugar-free maple syrup.
- Make a rich and decadent trifle with any of your favorite flavored Keto mousse or sugar-free sauces. You can use layers of Strawberry Coconut Mousse or this quick and easy Lemon Curd to make one amazing dessert.
- Drizzle fresh sugar-free berry coulis or sauce to give pound cake a fresh punch of flavor. This homemade Strawberry Sauce, Blueberry Sauce or Raspberry Sauce are all sugar-free and are super easy to make.
- Chocolate fan? Homemade Sugar-free Nutella is AH-mazing and really adds so much chocolatey flavor to the pound cake. You can heat up a slice of pound cake in the microwave for just a few seconds then give it a generous smear of Keto nutella...YUM!
- One of my most favorite ways to use Keto pound cake is making it into strawberry shortcake. Thin slices with strawberries and fresh cream layered in a deep casserole or soufflé dish is an easy dessert but will have your guests thinking you spent all day in the kitchen!
