Berry Lemonade Stuffed Pound Cake (Low Carb & Gluten Free)

Nothing screams summer or spring like a refreshing lemonade, right? So in today's occasion I'm setting all the mood for summer with this amazing berry lemonade stuffed pound cake! A taste of summer paradise in one amazing and thick bread!


I have been obsessed with berries and lemons lately so these have been a staple lately in my fridge or freezer. It only sounded right to create a delicious heavy loaf with all the goods, because guys... this bread is heavy and thick!



About these Berry Lemonade Stuffed Pound Cake:

I think I have to remark the fact that this bread is heavy and thick! That's why I'm calling it pound cake; the thickness comes from the coconut flour and flaxseed we are using as our ingredients.


The thing of using coconut flour and flaxseed is that they also tend to absorb more water so in this recipe we are including greek yogurt and egg whites to keep the moist to avoid having a dry bread.



Another factor or nutrient density and flavor are the berries and lemon! Besides looking pretty the berries will add some fiber, nutrients, flavor and also moist to the recipe, remember about coconut flour and flaxseed needing more liquid? Well, we also squeeze one tbsp of lemon to this!


The perfect afternoon snack, dessert or companion to your tea no matter if you are with a picky eater! This is a delicious, sweet, fun and nutrient dense bread that might be on repeat all summer long!




Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these Berry Lemonade Stuffed Pound Cake:


Loaded with vitamins, minerals from the fruit, the ground flaxseeds and coconut butter! This pound cake is truly another level and seriously irresistible! You can even add some collagen powder to add some gut health too!



The coconut flour also works so well in this recipe as our flavor and thickener factor and as a substitute for butter or coconut oil. For this recipe I covered it with aluminum paper to keep it moist and let all the flavors sink in.
