Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake : Low Carb and Gluten Free


You may have already seen some of Lisa MarcAurele's recipes on Diet Doctor site, she also has a blog called Low Carb Yum. This recipe suggestion is by Lisa and she says; "not only is this a gorgeous looking Bundt cake, it’s got a great texture and isn’t dry. The flavour is terrific too. I bet no one will be able to tell it’s a low carb and gluten free treat!" Best to use a silicone Bundt pan, but if you do use an older cast iron Bundt pan, spray it with non-stick spray, then let it cool in the pan for 20 to 30 minutes before turning it out. It should then come right out, and doesn’t stick at all!

INGREDIENTS:
Serves 16
CAKE:
1 cup butter softened
8 ounces cream cheese
1 cup low carb sugar substitute or Sukrin:1 (I used 3/4 cup)
1/2 teaspoon stevia concentrated powder or another 1/2 cup Swerve or Sukrin:1
10 eggs
2 teaspoons lemon extract
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups blueberries
2 tablespoons coconut flour
GLAZE:
1/2 cup Swerve Confectioners Powdered Sweetener or Sukrin Melis

2-3 tablespoons lemon juice

Did you know:
Blueberries, not only are they delicious and nutritious but they also have one of the highest antioxidant levels amongst all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings.

Blueberries are low in carbs and therefore do not have a significant impact on blood glucose levels, making them a good choice for diabetics.

Blueberries can also be frozen without reducing any of their antioxidant properties or delicate structure. So pick up those on offer in the supermarket and get them in the freezer ... now that's a good idea!

We bring a variety of articles, studies etc. plus recent news/views and recipe ideas to this blog, we hope something for everyone to read and enjoy. Please note, not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan
