This really cute and tiny (6 inches in diameter) keto pound cake with whipped cream 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.

A Delicious Healthy Cake

Your family and guests will love this sugar-free pound cake recipe.

It’s fast, easy, and perfect for many healthy eating plans; keto, grain-free, and low-carb. That’s reason enough to celebrate!

This miniature pound cake is perfect for smaller gatherings. It easily serves 4-6 people.

Perfect for the holidays, a birthday, an anniversary, or a girl’s night in, paired with a glass of bubbly.

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.

See the References at the bottom of this post for science-based nutritional research by nutrition professionals.

Be sure to consult a registered and licensed dietitian, licensed nutritionist, or certified nutrition specialist if you have questions about ingredients and how they fit into your personal nutrition plan.

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.


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.

Healthy Fats

Both butter and cream cheese are healthy fats.

The whole saturated fat, cholesterol, and heart disease myth have been thoroughly debunked.

Grass-fed butter is good for you and packs a powerful punch of nutrients.


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.

Healthy and Delicious Toppings

After it is cool, you are ready to garnish. Try this delicious, homemade, keto-approved whipped cream. Yum! It has only 3 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!

Pound Cake Fruit Toppings Ideas

Top cake with your choice of beautiful fruit. Here are some ideas, but use whatever you love, or what is in season, where you are.

Keto Pound Cake with Whipped Cream


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



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


Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease two 6-inch round pans generously with butter.

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 keep scraping the bowl. Stir in the almond flour and baking powder and beat once more until incorporated.

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 pan. Prepare and top with the Healthy Whip Cream recipe, or enjoy with your favorite berries or fruit.


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! 😉
