Low Carb Lemon Pound Cake

Starbuck's Copycat-Keto Friendly

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.

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.

My version…only 6g net carbs

Starbucks copycat is now keto friendly

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.

Pound Cake

Lemon Buttercream Frosting


  • Preheat oven to 350° and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Using a hand mixer, blend together the eggs and sweetener until slightly frothy. Add in all the other ingredients to the eggs and blend 1-2 minutes more until fully combined. Pour batter into parchment paper lined loaf pan.
  • Bake loaf in 350* oven for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Set aside to fully cool.
  • In a clean bowl add together all the ingredients for the frosting. Using your hand mixer beat all the ingredients together until smooth and creamy. Put in fridge to harden while the loaf is cooling.
  • When loaf is cool to the touch frost top of the loaf generously. When storing the loaf in the fridge the frosting will harden.


When you slice the refrigerated Keto Lemon Pound Cake to enjoy you may want to give it 15-20 seconds in the micro just to warm it slightly. Not too long in the micro or your frosting will all melt away.
