Low Carb Strawberry Pound Cake

Low Carb Strawberry Pound Cake

by Dee
Published: Updated:

A pound cake traditionally gets its name from the simple recipe that called for a pound each of flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. This straightforward proportion made it easy to remember and resulted in a dense, rich cake that could serve many. While this Low Carb Strawberry Pound Cake deviates from the classic ingredients to fit a low carb diet—using almond flour, cream cheese, and a sugar alternative—it retains the essential characteristics and texture of a traditional pound cake.

Fresh strawberries add a natural sweetness and a pop of color, while cream cheese provides a rich and creamy texture. I used King Arthur’s Baking Sugar Alternative, but you can substitute any low carb sugar replacement suitable for baking.

Whether enjoyed as a dessert, a companion to tea, or used as a base for other dishes like strawberry shortcake, this Low Carb Strawberry Pound Cake delivers the rich, familiar experience of the beloved original.

Store this cake in the refrigerator for up to three days. For effortless cleanup, I suggest lining your loaf pan with parchment paper. Keep a close eye on the cake as it gets close to the recommended baking time. Times may vary depending on your oven and the ingredients used.
