This really is the best and cutest (6 inches in diameter) keto pound cake with whipped cream! It is delicious and healthy, too.

If cakes make a celebration special, a homemade cake takes it to the next level. It shows your guests they are important and that you really care.

My personal favorite, no matter the flavor, is a mini cake. They are adorably elegant. Two words that usually don’t go together.

If you need to go grain-free, like me, this is a great way to have your cake and eat it, too! 😉

Pound Cake Ingredients

Here are some of the main items you need to make this recipe. They are easy to find in most grocery stores, or you can order most on Amazon.

Almond Flour

I prefer to use fine almond flour (not almond meal) in this cake recipe. It creates a nice crumb texture and helps to keep the cake moist.

Two great brands to try are Bob’s Red Mill Super-Fine Gluten-Free Almond Flour and Anthony’s Almond Flour.

Erythritol

This is a popular natural sweetener with a low glycemic index, meaning it will not spike your blood sugar and cause inflammation in your body.

Some brands to try are Lakanto, Now, or Swerve. Be sure the one you choose is certified organic and gluten-free.

Fats

Both butter and cream cheese are considered healthier fats. Grass-fed butter packs a powerful punch of nutrients compared to regular butter.

Protein

Eggs are a wonderful source of protein and are loaded with vitamin D, choline, and omega-3s for starters. Be sure to eat the yolk too, most of the nutrients are actually in there! Remember to buy pastured or cage-free eggs.

Equipment

Below is the short list of kitchen tools you will need. Affiliate link is included.

Delicious Toppings

After it is cool, you are ready to garnish. Try this delicious, homemade, keto-approved whipped cream. Yum! It has only three ingredients and zero carbs (<1 g).

If you prefer a traditional textured topping, make this healthy and fluffy protein frosting. It’s easy to make and great for piping, too!

Keto Pound Cake with Whipped Cream


Description

This little keto pound cake with homemade whipped cream cake (6 inches in diameter) is delicious and healthy too!


Ingredients

Scale

1/2 cup butter, preferably grass-fed

2 ounces cream cheese

1/23/4 cup erythritol

1 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

4 large eggs

2 cups almond flour

2 teaspoons baking powder


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease two 6-inch round pans generously with butter.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add the erythritol, sour cream, and vanilla, and beat until nicely combined. Next, add the eggs one at a time. Mix well after each; meanwhile, remember to scrape the bowl. Stir in the almond flour and baking powder and beat once more until incorporated.
  3. Divide batter evenly between pans and smooth the tops with a spatula. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown, a toothpick comes out clean, and the cake is slightly firm in the middle, not wet and jiggly. For best results, let the cake cool completely before removing from the pan.
  4. Prepare and top with this healthy whipped cream recipe and your favorite berries or fruit.

Notes

Let Cool I know it’s tempting to immediately remove the cakes from the pan to see your masterpiece. (I do it every time!) But it’s best to be patient and let the cake cool so that it firms up and does not fall apart. Do as I say, not as I do! 😉
