Yum! Blueberry Pound Cake is on the menu for dessert tonight. I still had some fresh picked blueberries left in the freezer from last years harvest and wanted to make something that is delicious and healthy at the same time. This Blueberry Pound Cake is not only Gluten-Free but Keto (low carb) friendly as well. There is nothing like taking a bite out of a slightly warm pound cake and a cup of freshly brewed coffee to end the perfect meal.
I’ve been trying to come up with some tasty dishes that are much healthier, packed with goodness and that taste just as good as it looks. Well, this Blueberry Pound Cake made the top of the list along with my Low Carb Gluten-Free Donuts. Think about it, you get your cake and you get to eat too! I also think the fresh blueberries were the extra additive that put this cake over the top of the tasty scale.
I came up with this recipe after watching a commercial on TV for a pound cake that looked totally mouth-watering scrumptious. After looking up a recipe and seeing how much sugar and other stuff that’s just not the best if you are trying to follow a Keto (low carb) lifestyle, I decided to invent my own. After my husband had the first bite he was amazed when I told him it was sugar-free, gluten-free and low carb! He went back for more.
This scrumptious Blueberry Pound Cake is loaded with delicious goodness. Not only is it tasty, but it’s Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, and Low Carb as well. Believe me, they are going to love it.
