Chocolate Pound Low Carb Cake : Made with Coconut Flour.

If you are looking for "an easy low carb coconut flour pound cake made with coconut flour and baked in a loaf pan" then look no further! "This simple low carb cake is great as a snack with a pat of butter or dressed up with ice cream... for some people, not being able to enjoy desserts and baked goods on any diet is a deal breaker. But low carbers have found ways to healthify some of their favourite recipes, making them diabetic friendly and healthy for weight-loss."

"Because coconut flour is used in this recipe, the net carbs are super low and perfect for those on a ketogenic diet. Another plus? Since the price of almond flour has steadily climbed higher, coconut flour is becoming the more economical choice."

Serves 12
2 net carbs per serving.

Dry Ingredients
3/4 cups (70 g) (Bob's Red Mill) Coconut Flour
1/2 cup (115 g) Sukrin 1 (or Swerve Granulated)
1/4 cup (25 g) unsweetened cocoa powder (sift before measuring)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee or espresso, optional
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
Wet Ingredients
6 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon stevia glycerite or more to taste
2 teaspoons vinegar
Melt together
4 ounces (1 stick/ 113 g) salted butter, melted (or coconut milk)
1 ounce (28 g) unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
Optional Topping
2 tablespoons (Lily's) Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips

Please find cooking instructions, and much more, at Low Carb Maven blog here

I'll go and put the kettle on,
tea or coffee?

All the best Jan

Can I leave out the xanthum gum? I avoid all gums if I can. I don't know if I am intolerant or allergic. My allergist will figure that out.

Hello there, many thanks for your comment and question ...

"If you are allergic to xanthan gum, is there an alterative? The answer is yes. The best bet for those allergic to Xanthan gum, or simply want to do away with it, is to make your own food products. If you have a recipe calling for xanthan gum, you can usually substitute it out. The best alternatives to use would be: psyllium fiber, chia seeds, glucomannan, ground flax seeds, gelatin, and agar agar. These products can give a similar thickening effect.
Xanthan gum has many uses and is relatively safe to consume. However, if you have a food allergy to corn, wheat, or soy there are alternatives you can use. Be mindful of the ingredients of your products the next time you are at the grocery store. You would be surprised as to how many products contain xanthan gum."

All the best Jan
