HOW TO MAKE KETO EGGNOG POUND CAKE
Please see the recipe card below for the complete recipe, including measurements and cooking time!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 10 x 5 loaf pan with butter or coconut oil spray and line it with parchment paper for easy removal. Grease or spray the parchment paper as well.
In a medium bowl whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon, and set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter until smooth, and slowly add in the sweetener until all combined. Beat on medium speed until light and cream and color pales. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla.
Alternating between the flour mixture and eggnog, add them in starting and ending with the flour.
Spoon batter into the prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center, comes out clean. If the cake begins to brown more than you like tent it with foil. Let the cake rest in the pan for 20 minutes before removing it from the pan and placing it on a cooling rack to cool completely.
Drizzle with the eggnog glaze.
FAQS ABOUT KETO EGGNOG POUND CAKE
Can I double this Keto Eggnog Pound Cake and bake it in a bundt pan? Pound cake is usually a pretty forgiving cake to bake. I have not doubled this recipes as it is just two of us here so no need for tons of cake but, if you do double it I would just add a bit of time to the baking and check with a toothpick to make sure it is done through.
Can I make this Keto Pound Cake without the eggnog? If you want a delicious pound cake but are not a fan of eggnog you can replace the eggnog with sour cream, or heavy whipping cream, or even buttermilk. You might need to add a bit more sweetener or flavoring though.
Why does the bottom of your Keto Eggnog Pound Cake look burnt? I use a Monk Fruit and Allulose sweetener and Allulose can cause baked good to become a bit darker than other keto sweeteners. I assure you that it is not burnt nor does it taste burnt but, if you prefer a lighter cake, you can use an erythritol blend like this one.
Last thoughts about Keto Eggnog Pound Cake
My Dad, who was my biggest supporter and fan, passed away 11 years ago. He was a HUGE pound cake lover.
I mean like this man could eat an entire Sara Lee pound cake all by himself!!
So when I came up with the original non-keto version of this recipe years ago it was in memory of him.
That is why this recipe is so near and dear to my heart and why it took me a while to convert it to keto. I wanted to make sure it was just right before I shared it with y'all.
So when my photographer texted me that this ketop pound cake was amazing (she is NOT keto) I knew I had done what I set out to do!
When I can win over the Mr. AND my photographer I know that I am on to something and feel pretty safe in doing the happy foodie dance for a recipe well written!
