  1. Hi here need some clarification..in written recipe there is cream cheese and butter but no mention how to use but in the video there is the butter being creamed but no show for the cream cheese is there a typo in recipe?

  2. Hello
    I just made the lemon pound cake , it is getting ready to go into the oven, but did not see where or when to add the cream cheese, so I left it out. I will assume you meant it for the icing/frosting?

    1. No cream cheese needed.. My mistake…Sorry about that. Although if you used it, there’s no problem! The lemon juice goes into the lemon glaze. Let me know how your pound cake turned out 🙂

  3. The written instructions don’t tell you when to add the softened butter. I followed that recipe, ready to go in the oven, then had to watch the video for clarification about the butter. Ack! It’s at the beginning! So I added it the the batter at the end because I did not want to waste all that almond flour. It’s in the oven now… fingers crossed it’s ok. You may want to update the instructions because this cake looks AMAZING!

    1. I just updated the instructions.Thank you for noticing this. It’s ok to add the butter at the end. Let me know how it turned out :D!!

      1. It was SOOOO DELICIOUS! Even my partner was impressed (and he’s an avid baker). We will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing.

  4. 5 stars
    This is the best and most delicious keto cake I have found and made from the internet and I have made a lot of different keto cakes.
    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I plan on making this for every occasion:)

  5. Does the cake have the cooking effect from the erythritol? I tried making another pound cake and I couldn’t eat it. I don’t know how to get around that issue. Thanks in advance!

    1. I’ve heard that if you use half Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener and half Swerve, that their aftertastes become barely noticeable! I bought the former sweetener on Amazon.

  6. 5 stars
    This turned out well! My only complaint is that I had trouble resisting seconds! I used half Lakanto Monkfruit and half Swerve for the sweetener to reduce the after taste, and 1 tsp lemon extract in place of lemon juice for the glaze (plus 2 tbs and 2 tsp water) because I didn’t have lemon on hand. I would happily make this again!

  7. Hiya,
    Can’t wait to try this recipe! I have two questions…
    1.Can I use Xilitol as the sweetener? I use that in all my keto baking and I love how it tastes as good as sugar did.
    2. Can I add blueberries to this? It won’t ruin it, will it?

    Thank you!
