Giraffe’s Low-Carb PB & C Pound Cake
Sometimes our sweet tooth takes over our psyche and we devour every dessert in sight.
We thought we would create a low-carb dessert that was tasty, filling, and one that would be acceptable should a sugar craving binge arises.
After playing with a few ingredients, we created Giraffe’s Low-Carb Peanut Butter & Chocolate Pound Cake!
We mixed our batter in a matter of 5-10 minutes and baked for an extra 45 minutes and voilà! Our dessert was out of the oven and ready to eat.
The ingredients that we used were:
- 1 8 oz. Package of Cream Cheese
- 5 Eggs
- 1 Cup of Baking Splenda
- 3/4th Cup of Almond Flour
- 3/4th Cup of Peanut Butter
- 2 Tbsp. Heavy Whipping Cream
- 2 Tbsp. Sugar-Free Pancake Syrup
- 2 Tbsp. Cocoa
- 3 tsp. Baking Powder
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
We’ll begin by cracking our eggs into our mixing bowl and adding our Baking Splenda, heavy whipping cream, syrup, cocoa, baking powder, and vanilla.
Next, we’ll soften our cream cheese by placing our bowl in the microwave for 1 minute and will add into our mixture.
We’ll then pour our Almond Flour and peanut butter over the cream cheese and will mix our contents until thoroughly blended.
Next, we’ll spray our 1 pound baking tin or baking dish with cooking spray and will preheat our oven to 325F degrees.
Finally, we’ll pour our batter into our pan, will place in the oven, and bake for 45 minutes.
Upon completion of our 45 minutes of baking time, we’ll remove our cake from the oven to check its doneness.
If, when a toothpick is inserted into a cake, is removed, clean of any particles, then, your cake has completely cooked.
Since our toothpick is clean, our cake is ready to cool.
We’ll allow our cake to cool for about 10 minutes, will slice our cake, and will try our new creation.
The cake was not overly sweet, but was soft, fluffy, moist, and absolutely scrumptious!
We noticed the next morning, that our cake tasted sweeter and just divine!!
Apparently, the longer the cake remains in the refrigerator, the moistness and sweetness increases.
Hopefully, our Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pound Cake tempts your palates as much as it has ours.
