Satisfyingly drizzled with a creamy keto glaze, our keto pound cake really hits the spot when your sweet tooth acts up. These come in at just 1.2 g net carbohydrates per slice if you slice the loaf into 24 slices. Now, if you're anything like my husband you may want to enjoy big fat slices. In that case, slice the keto pound cake into 12 slices. Then, you're looking at 2.4 g net carbohydrates per slice.
What Sugar Substitute To Use?
In my Keto Cupcake Cookbook, I've gone in-depth on sugar substitutes. Here, I'll summarize my recommendations for making this glazed keto pound cake.
For the softest inside texture choose BochaSweet or allulose. Allulose will cause the cake to brown on the outside quite a bit, so watch it closely so it doesn't burn. You'll notice in the recipe I've used a blend of erythritol and BochaSweet. I actually used half Lakanto Baking Sweetener 1:1 Sugar Substitute and half BochaSweet. But, when I made the recipe card, erythritol was the option.
For the keto glaze, our top choice is Lakanto Baking Sweetener 1:1 Sugar Substitute. The erythritol in the blend allows the glaze to set up into a nice, soft but crunchy glaze like you're used to when using traditional sugar. Xylitol will do the same thing, but we don't have it in the house for two reasons. First, we have cats and xylitol is highly toxic to animals even in small amounts. Second, I get extreme gas, pain, and bloating when I eat xylitol so I avoid it.
Ingredients for Glazed Keto Pound Cake
To make these keto pound cake, you'll need these ingredients:
- Acacia Fiber Powder
- Coconut flour
- Xanthan gum
- Baking powder
- Heavy cream
- Butter flavoring extract
- Vanilla extract
Why Acacia Fiber?
Acacia fiber is a healthy-for-your gut and gentle fiber that doubles as an emulsifier. It helps hold things together in this keto pound cake recipe along with the xanthan gum. So, this is an ingredient I recommend you order online and keep in stock.
Bonus Tip: Acacia fiber is wonderful to use blended into a keto coffee to help the fat and liquid stay combined. We use it so we don't end up with fat floating on top of our morning cup of joe.
Can I Substitute Almond Flour For Coconut Flour?
The short answer to any substitution for coconut flour in this keto pound cake recipe is “No”. Coconut flour is a unique flour that I've spent years learning to bake with. It's highly absorbent and full of good-for-you fiber. So, I don't recommend using any other flour as a substitution in this or any recipe calling for coconut flour.
