Low-Carb Almond Flour Pound Cake

Laura Geese


While making dinner, I asked my hubby to find a cake recipe for me using almond meal and this is what he found. The original recipe calls for almond flour, but I used almond meal as I like the grainy, nutty texture that the meal gives.

I followed this recipe with only two changes; the almond flour for the almond meal and I eliminated the lemon extract and doubled the vanilla instead.
