Keto Lemon Pound Cake

Starbucks Copycat Lemon Loaf

I’m always trying to recreate things you see in everyday life that just don’t need to be filled with so much sugar. I came up with this Keto Lemon Pound Cake and I truly believe it’s a great substitute without all the carbs.

Starbucks Iced Lemon Loaf

Starbucks….Alarming!!! 68g carbs

Here is the website if you want to see for yourself. It’s shocking!

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 and you cut down on the carbs even more with my Keto Lemon Pound Cake. Stays good in the fridge for at least a week, too!

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.
