Lemon Pound Cake – A Light Gluten Free Recipe

Posted on


This brightly flavored Lemon Loaf Cake is a versatile cake that’s been lightened up just in time for the warmer weather. I’ve trimmed over 1400 calories from my original recipe by using low-fat Greek yogurt to replace nearly 2/3 of the butter in the recipe. Fresh lemons bring the unmistakable flavor of summer to the cake. This one is far lighter than many other cakes since there is no calorie laden icing. A slice of this cake topped with seasonal berries makes an elegant lighter dessert that just can’t be beat.

    I “actually? do the recipe” in every video I make. My videos are comprised of still shots versus video clips. They’re akin to reading a cookbook without having to read with a ton more photos. At some point I may introduce video clips into the tutorials but at this point I don’t have the capabilities. Some other gluten free channels you may enjoy are GlutenFreeHome, GlutenFreeGigi, and GlutenFreeTips They all use video and may have a video production style that is more to your liking.

    can you do a video where you actually do the recipe rather than just telling us by? picture. thanks

    Thanks Shelly. I think you’ll love it. It has an nice dense pound cake consistency but a light lemon flavor. If you want it more lemony follow the advice at the end. I just defrosted the last piece last? night. So good.

    Hi Miss Gemini, I am using the KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer. The whole KitchenAid line is pretty good. I’ve had this machine for over a decade. Plus it’s a machine that can grow with? you over the years since they sell so many attachments for it (pasta maker, ice cream maker, sausage maker etc).

    It might work but I would suggest an all purpose gf flour blend that contains xanthan gum to keep the cake together. If the flour has no xanthan gum you’d need to add 1/2 tsp per cup of flour or 1 teaspoon total for this recipe. And you’d also need to add 1&1/2 tsp of baking powder to the flour as well to help with the leavening. If you do end up making this with substitutions, please come back and give an? update us with your results. I feel like we’re all learning this together. : )

  22. EZGlutenFree
