Paleo Pound Cake

Sharing is caring!



Ok, I’m warning you. This pound cake is addictive and you will probably have to spend 100% of your time telling yourself NOT to eat it all.  At least I did.   Summer is in full swing and this would be heaven to top this with whipped cream and berries.

Yesterday we walked to the market and I bought two flats of strawberries with the idea that I would be making this paleo pound cake.  I started cleaning them, my least favorite part, and randomly popped a dozen few strawberries in my mouth.  My son ate a good dozen more and before I knew it, there was only a quart left. I knew Mr. Bejelly would straight up have a fit if he didn’t get any so… yeah. I’m still working on eating this with berries.

You can’t have a pound cake without butter but if you can’t eat dairy then please try ghee first so you can get the true flavor of this recipe.  I specifically made this coconut flour so it could be nut-free.

    Is there a specific size loaf pan that should be used? I have regular sized and mini loaf pans.

    I made the paleo pound cake today. I changed a couple of things: I used organic raw blue agave instead of honey and earth balance organic whipped butter instead of reg butter. It is very good!! I’d make it again. Next Time I’d try the honey. I just didn’t have any.

    Nasty, nasty, nasty. My pound cake looked nothing like the picture and is basically a yellow brick. Yes I used and followed the directions. Even added more liquid, still not a batter, just a gloppy mess. My guy ate it with some fresh berries and asked how much was left. I showed the remaining loaf and he said “throw it out, this is disgusting.” We won’t be doing this again.

    This was delicious. Thank you for sharing! I haven’t had pound cake in years since days of buying Entenmann’s . I used this for strawberry shortcake and bf, who is not paleo did not notice any difference!

    This was delicious! Good crumb and it looked just like a regular pound cake.
