Yep, I love a dense and rich slice of pound cake, and luckily it’s easy to make a keto-friendly version that’s both satisfying and delicious!

You’ll whip this up in no time and enjoy a yummy low-carb homemade dessert without a ton of effort – yippee!
Tips for making the BEST keto lemon pound cake:
- Don’t skip the lemon zest, as it brightens the cake so much (you can use a small amount of lemon extract instead if you prefer).
- Make sure to grease your loaf pan well with butter before baking to avoid sticking. As an option, you can add parchment paper too.
- Feel free to slice your cake and then freeze it for a later date! The cake should last in the freezer for a couple of months if stored covered.
