KETO COCONUT POUND CAKE
This sugar-free coconut cake is moist, light and fluffy with a rich coconut flavor that you simply won’t be able to get enough of.
I personally prefer ‘dry’ cakes instead of heavily iced creamy cakes. So for me, this cake is perfect with just a bit of powdered erythritol dusting but you can turn this cake into a beautiful cake with coconut icing as well. I much prefer the un-iced version with a cup of coffee though.
TIPS ON MAKING KETO COCONUT POUND CAKE
If you want to substitute coconut flour for almond flour you need to use more then 1/2 cup, as coconut flour absorbs more liquid then almond flour. But personally I would not recommend using almond flour for this cake as the cake wouldn’t taste of coconut anymore then.
You can not substitute coconut flour for desiccated coconut, as the texture would be too coarse and the cake wouldn’t be moist and fluffy anymore.
The coconut oil can be substituted for an equal amount of butter in the recipe.
I mainly use finely powdered Erythritol in my baking. You can use granulated Erythritol, Erythritol/ Stevia mix, and other keto-friendly sweeteners such as Xylitol or Allulose. Please remember that Xylitol adds more calories to the recipe and can raise blood sugar in some people. When I bake for my family I only use Erythritol but when I bake for friends I mix Erythritol with Xylitol as not everyone likes the cooling effect of Erythritol. You can not substitute the amount of sweetener with the same amount of Stevia.
If you do not want to use unsweetened coconut milk you can use other plant milk instead. Please remember that oat or rice milk contains more carbohydrates. You can also use heavy cream or cows milk.
