Low Carb Chocolate Almond Poundcake

A delicious cake that takes the sting away from not being able to eat my mother’s chocolate pudding cake (which I WILL find an alternative for eventually!).  This cake reminds me of a Krispy Kreme chocolate cake donut for some reason!  Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • My husband always wants shredded coconut in EVERYTHING!  The last cake I made of this recipe,  I added 1/2 cup of coconut.  He still wanted more!
  • I questioned whether some of the cake was done at first... it was so moist!  But it was!
  • You can find Xanthan Gum practically everywhere now.  Walmart, Whole Foods, Earth Fare, Fresh Market and many regular grocery stores.
