Pound Cake Recipes

I've been having fun making variations on an almond-flour pound cake recipe that I found on the net. Lately I've been using mostly Carbquik low-carb baking mix with an extra type of flour to spice it up a bit. It's hard to go wrong trying out variations on this with whatever you may like.

My Current Favorite Pound Cake

Ingredients:

Cream butter and Splenda well.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Mix in the Carbquik/flour a little at a time while beating.  Add vanilla extract.  Add water;  Sprinkle cinnamon into mixture while beating or save it for the top (as you prefer).  Pour mix into greased 9"-10" Spring form pan (or 9" round cake pan) and bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes or until nicely browned.

Almond Flour Pound Cake

This is my version of an almond flour pound cake that got me inspired.

Ingredients:

Cream butter, cream cheese, and Splenda well.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Mix almond flour with baking powder and add to egg mixture a little at a time while beating.  Add vanilla extract.  Add coconut (if using).  Pour into greased 9"-10" Spring form pan (or 9" round cake pan) and bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes or until nicely browned.

Alternatives: Change-up the flavor using extracts or sugar-free syrups.

Frosting

Ingredients:

Cream all ingredents in a blender, adding the coconut last if you're using it.  Chilling will firm it up, if needed.
