Paleo Pound Cake

Garnished with Paleo diet approved fruit or plain, this pound cake is surprisingly similar in flavor to Sara Lee! The texture is slightly more layer-cake like but that's good, too. Right?

This recipe is adapted from Health-e Enterprises’ Guilt-Free Desserts

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 scoops (40 grams) unsweetened whey protein powder or your favorite (Paleo) protein powder 
  • ½ cup erythritol, granulated (powdered is fine, too)
  • ¾ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons grass-fed butter OR coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 4 tablespoons almond milk  (coconut milk works, too)
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ teaspoons liquid stevia extract

Generously butter a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Line with parchment paper and butter again.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together the dry ingredients: the almond flour, protein powder, erythritol, baking powder and salt.

In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Add the melted butter (or coconut oil), almond (or coconut) milk, vanilla and liquid stevia.

Gradually pour the dry ingredients into the egg/butter/milk/vanilla mixture. Blend well on medium speed.
Fill the prepared pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
