low carb pumpkin pound cake

Now that I’m embracing the low carb, Keto lifestyle, I’m back to figuring out recipes, ok, sweets that will work on the diet.   Thankfully most of my cravings for sugary things has waned considerably but, come on, my sweet tooth is still  like, you know you need cake every now and then all I could think about was Pumpkin Pound Cake.

I’m still learning the carb count of foods (still very much in shock from the carb count of my Brussels Sprouts) so this turned out a bit higher in carbs than I thought it would be.  It still falls into a great low carb option.  You can just skip the pumpkin if you want to reduce the carbs.  If you do this then please reduce the cook time by 5 minutes.
