I wanted to try my hand @ making a loaf type pound cake, that really tasted superb, & that you could eat without guilt, this is a winning recipe. The Amaretto extract adds all the flavor you need. The applesauce keeps the texture moist & soft. The best part is it only has 5 net carbs per serving, & only 10 carbs total, the fiber is 5 grams, & only 2 g of sugar because of the zero calorie sweetner I used. I love this recipe. My husband had his with fresh strawberries & whipped cream, I just had mine plain, my husband said it taste like a poppy seed cake. YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE IT'S LOW CARB.

    I used unsweetened applesauce & organic Chia seeds. In a seperate bowl add the almond flour & baking powder, then whisk together to blend.
  • 3
    Beat until batter is mixed together and well combined.
  • 4
    Add about half of almond flour to wet ingredients, then beat well to blend. Then add remaining flour and Amaretto extract & beat until batter is completely blended, about 2 minutes or so.

    Here is the Amaretto extract that I used. I ordered it from Amazon, and a little really does go a long way.
  • 6
    Spray a loaf pan with Bakers Joy then add in the cake batter. Place in preheated 350 degree F. oven and bake for 45 minutes or until tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean. always allow at least an inch or so from top of cake pan to allow cake to rise. I used a 12 inch X 4 1/2 inch X 3 1/4 inch size loaf pan, a bit longer than average, but you may also use a round cake pan if desired.

    Allow cake to cool in pan at least 8-10 minutes or so before inverting onto a platter or wire rack. Nutritional Info: Calories per serving 315, Fat 28 grams, Cholesterol 81 Mg, Sodium 29 Mg, Potassium 39 Mg. TOTAL CARBS 10 G, Fiber 5 G, Sugars 2, Protein 8 G, & NET CARBS PER SERVING 5G.
