It’s enormously important to me to give credit where … credit is due. My pound cake recipe is one that I got from somewhere. It’s not mine. I don’t know if it’s modified or not, nor do I remember where I got it. I just know that it’s in my notes and has been bumping around for a few years. I just looked to see if I could find the source of the recipe and was unable to.
Looking at the recipe, it either came from KevinPa, or I found a different recipe and modified it using lessons learned from KevinPa. In either case, KevinPa was at least partially responsible (if not … entirely). In all cases, I’m going to use this as an opportunity to point out his memorial thread on LowCarbFriends.com. In the very early days of low carbing, his recipes and lessons really showed me what could be done and gave me the confidence and strength to believe I could eat this way … forever. The recipe is good, but KevinPa’s contributions to the low carb community should be noted and shared, as much as possible (in my opinion). He’s made a huge impact on me, and I hope he will for you … as well.
Anywhooo … about once every 3 or 4 months, I bake a loaf and freeze it. Sometimes I make muffins. With the loaves, I slice pieces off and toast them. Usually I serve them with ice cream, when friends visit. Sometimes I just top them with berries. I’ve cubed them and layered desserts with pound cake cubes, fruit, pudding and whipped cream. The list goes on. I don’t do it OFTEN, but … when I do do it … I DO IT!
Enjoy the recipe. It’s a good one. Weird and with all kinds of science experiment sounding ingredients, but … the recipe is a good one. I promise!
Pound CakePrint Rate
- 2 1/2 cups Carbquik
- 1/4 cup vital wheat gluten flour
- 3/4 cup resistant wheat starch 75
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp guar gum
- 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
- 1 1/2 cup 'Swerve' or other sugar replacement
- 3/4 cup fresh whole butter softened
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 6 large whole eggs
- 8 ounces full fat cream cheese softened
- Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
- This actually makes a lot of batter. I usually use 2 standard loaf pans, or a loaf pan and a muffin pan. Grease your loaf pans, muffin pans, cake pans, bundt pans, etc. with butter, then a light dusting of Carbquik.
- With an electric mixer, beat all the ingredients together for 5 minutes, at a medium speed.
- Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Cool and eat or freeze!
