Almond Pound Cake

Do you recall my sister picking up some baking pans for me a few weeks ago? Well I am finding uses for them and have to share my finds. This pan is a mini loaf pan.

 

 

Isn’t it adorable? I am sure that there are others out there that get excited about cookware. My sister called me yesterday to have me look at Walmart’s website to see a Texas Muffin Pan. I was impressed but believe that I will have to have the castle or train muffin pans to make goodies for Caleb the spectacular grandchild. J

 

I love pound cake and found a website with a recipe that I swear I was unable to tell the low carb from the regular carb laden pound cake. I took the cake to work with me this morning and shared it with my wonderful co-worker Tiffany. She either really loved it or faked it very well. J

 

I tried going back to the website today and for some reason the website was down. I am adding the link to the original but will copy the recipe below just in case the link doesn’t work.

  4. How much cocoa would you add to make this chocolate? While it sounds delicious as is, I always have a chocolate craving and I also love a good pound cake. Thank you for sharing! :)

  5. Do you think honey would work in this recipe?

    • If you are a Diabetic you might want to forgo the Honey if it usually spikes your glucose. Try the honey and tell me how it works for you! I am curious.
