Low Carb Lemon Pound Cake
Starbucks Copycat Lemon Loaf
I’m always trying to recreate things you see in everyday life that don’t need to be filled with junk. Therefore, I came up with this Keto Lemon Pound Cake from need to change things. This is a great substitute without all the carbs.
Walking into Starbucks almost daily to see all the pastries…but I love their coffee! It saddens me to look in the case and see a CARB FEST. This makes it so so hard for us to get through the day and NOT be bombarded with cheap sugar and flour.
Starbucks Iced Lemon Loaf
Why would you do this to yourself? Look at the carb break down below and truly ask yourself “do I really NEED that sugar bomb? Yes, it tastes good, but it’s got 68g carb PER SLICE.
Starbucks….Alarming!!! 68g carbs

My version…only 6g net carbs
It’s really alarming that everything in that Starbucks case is full of sugar and loaded with carbs. My copycat Keto Lemon Pound Cake seems like a major win at only 6g net carbs per slice…and you don’t even need a whole slice.
Skip the frosting. You cut down on the carbs even more with my Keto Lemon Pound Cake. This copycat cake stays fresh in the fridge for at least a week, too!

My secret to lasting weight loss
Maintaining my weight loss, and quite frankly staying healthy, has always been the main driver for this website. Making meals and treats like this Lemon Pound Cake are really my trick. Sorry, it’s that simple for me…I meal prep and almost always cook at home.
I wrote a few articles about this and will write more, but I want everyone to know that cooking at home is one of my major keys to success. Every meal does not have to be epic, but when I am prepared I have a much better chance at success.
