Keto Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake Recipe

We just made the best lemon blueberry cake on the planet! If you love the combination of lemon and blueberry and you were on the keto diet, this is a special treat for you!  It’s really hard to believe that this truly does taste like a real lemon blueberry pound cake as I remember it before I started the keto diet.

We do have a lot of different varieties of our pancake recipes but lemon and blueberry is my favorite!  You can easily make this ahead of time for parties or take it to potluck dinners.  It’s just one of those recipes that everybody loves.

We did use fresh lemons and the fresh lemon zest in this recipe but you can also use lemon extract if that’s all you have.  To make sure you know exactly how much lemon extract to use I would start off with a teaspoon of extract mixed the batter and then taste a small amount of it.  Then add more as needed to reach your desired taste.  I would do the same technique with the frosting as well add a bit and then taste it as you go until you reach your desired level of lemon taste you want.

We did use coconut oil in this recipe but you can also substitute that with olive oil or avocado oil in the exact same amounts.

We use fresh blueberries in this recipe.  If you use frozen blueberries it’ll add a bit too much water to this recipe and it won’t come out as expected.

    I can’t eat blueberries but love lemon anything, so replaced them with blackberries I had on hand. It was wonderful, even my husband ate it and he refuses to eat “anything keto or sugarfree”. It’s our secret, didn’t tell him. Thank you!
