  • I can’t wait to try your almond flour cream cheese pound cake. I am preparing for a Keto Christmas this year so I am trying out recipes now. Is the lemon blueberry cream cake a pound cake also? Thank you. Have a blessed day.

    • I’m so excited to hear that! The Lemon Blueberry Cream cake does have the texture of a pound cake…it’s delish! The Pecan Toffee Crunch and Keto Muddy Buddies would be great for Christmas as well! I have some great things in store for the holiday season so stay tuned! Enjoy your Sunday!

    • Trisha –
      I’m so glad you liked it! We love using it for strawberry shortcake or in place of a pound cake…the possibilities are endless!

      • I am in the mood right now for Pumpkin Pound Cake and Cinnamon Swirl. Also want to try to make some Gingerbread. Do you have any recipes for gingerbread?

        • I have a great recipe for Pumpkin Bread but not gingerbread. Gingerbread is difficult because of the molasses but I have an idea for that! I’ll work on this!

  • Hi this is sooo good! Everyone LOVES it. Can I add pumpkin puree and if so do I need to do any adjustments? Would it still bake correctly if I also added a streusel tipping?

    • Thanks Patricia! I’m not sure about adding pumpkin purée to this…I have not tried it! I believe the batter may be a little too wet. You may want to check out my Chai Spiced Pumpkin Bread for a sure thing!

  • As you know we LOVE this cake. I recently used it as a base for a pineapple upside down cake for my husband’s birthday and it was perfect! Thanks once again for this perfect cake recipe. Today we are trying the chocolate sour cream cake.
