Low Carb Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Shares

Cream cheese makes baked goods so deliciously tender and soft and that applies to low carb baked goods too! This almond flour low carb pound cake is so deceptively simple, but topped with some whipped cream and fresh berries, it makes a spectacular summer dessert. 

One little piece of advice: steer clear of the fancy bundt pans with swirls. As you notice, it made the edges quite dark while the rest of the cake was pale. Stick with simple fluted bundt pans for a more consistent browning. The fancy pans are tempting but not worth the trouble.

Low Carb Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Low Carb Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Ingredients

  • 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • Sweetener equivalent to 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temp
  • 1 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups finely ground almond flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325F and grease a bundt pan very well.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and butter until well combined. Beat in the sweetener until lightened and fluffier, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Scrape down the bowl and beaters as needed. Beat in the extracts.
  4. Add the almond flour, baking powder, and salt all at once and beat in until well combined. Spread the batter in the prepared baking pan and bake 55 to 65 minutes, until the top is set and firm to the touch.
  5. Remove and let cool in the pan for at least 20 minutes before flipping out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Serve with berries and lightly sweetened whipped cream.

I halved the recipe for a loaf pan. I also used half confectioners Swerve, and hand erythritol/stevia granular blend. This loaf was amazing!!!

How high was the cake in the loaf pan with half the recipe? Did it reach the top of the pan?

OMG this cake was perfection! I used Swerve as my sweetener and this cake was moist and fluffy and just perfect! Another winner, Carolyn!

I’m about to make this cake now, it just sounds so good and I was looking for a good pound cake to use for strawberry shortcake. My only complaint is that I wish posts would be answered in a timely manner. I just posted yesterday, but I see where another hasn’t been answered for days. I guess I’ll just have to use my own judgement and hope for the best.

Can this be baked in an 8×8 glass pan with good results?

I’d say that investing a little bit more in almond flour is much better than eating regular flour. Besides, you don’t eat a cake like this every day. Excellent recipe! I love Carolyn’s recipes because they are not complicated at all. Cheers from Mexico!!

Thank you, Carolyn, Baked this last night. Used the correct ingredients and followed the directions exactly. WOW !!! My husband (a grumpy, newly diagnosed diabetic) could not believe it was grain-free and sugar-free. He told me three times while chewing a mouthful, “This is an excellent cake!” It has a perfect pound cake crumb. Sometimes difficult to do with a nut flour but you have nailed it. Yes, it has THREE whole cups of almond flour in it, but I’m not going to bake this every week. However, it might be every other week, if Mr. Grumpy has anything to… Read more »
