A delicious sugar free chocolate pound cake recipe
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 45 minutes
Servings 1 cake

Ingredients

  • Flour AP- 3 1/2 cups. Make this low carb- Using Carbalose flour alternative
  • Salt- 1/2 teaspoon.
  • Baking Powder- 1/2 teaspoon.
  • Sugar alternative- 3 cups equivalent to sugar. Please use a granular alternative that is 1:1 with sugar in volume for best results.
  • Butter- 2 sticks or 1 cup softened to room temperature.
  • Shortening- 1/2 cup. Shortening is preferred as it will give this cake the volume and texture that it needs to be a true pound cake. However not everyone is a fan of shortening. Thus, you could use butter or oil or a similar fat instead (1/2 cup in addition to the 2 sticks above).
  • Eggs- 5.
  • Cocoa Powder- 1/2 cup.
  • Milk- 1 cup.
  • Vanilla Extract-2 teaspoons.

  5. Stir the cocoa powder, milk and vanilla extract, taking care to not over mix. However, the ingredients should be blended.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepped baking pan.
