Lemon Strawberry Pound Cake 1

Lemon Strawberry Pound Cake

Serves: 8

Happy Friday! We have finally reached the end of the week! I am so excited for the weekend and some nice weather! A few weeks ago when I did the Lock Laces giveaway I had asked you to leave a comment about one of your favorite spring foods….and strawberries were a huge win! Since I too love strawberries, I figured why not start with the spring and summer recipes now! The warm weather this weekend makes for the perfect time to share this delicious cake! Loaded with strawberry and lemon flavor, you will definitely be shooting straight into the summer! Enjoy the recipe and have a great weekend! 🙂

4. Add your coconut flour to your wet ingredients.

5. Fold in your pureed strawberries.

7. Allow to cool before removing from the pan.

Lemon Strawberry Pound Cake 4

Loaded with fresh strawberry flavor, yet moist and dense just like a full fat pound cake….it doesn’t get any better than that! Top it with additional fresh strawberries and coconut cream or greek yogurt! This is the perfect spring recipe!

    Girl you are KILLING ME lol!!! Know I can use a legit recipe with my coconut flour YAY!!!!!! Only I can't use strawberries :0(. They were my favorite but a year ago I found out strawberries along with pineapple causes me break out in a nasty itchy rash. Know my LOVES are blueberries and raspberries. I almost feel like finding out strawberries make me a bubonic plaque was a blessing in disguise. Now which to use HMMMMM blueberries or raspberries ;0). Have a great weekend!!!

  • Hey, girl! I am so behind on my blog reading--and finally got around to this! I am in love. Do you think almond milk would work just as well as coconut milk?

  • Oh my gosh, this looks amazingly dense! I finally gave up on coconut flour, but now I'm thinking maybe I shouldn't have... Strawberries definitely make me think spring, too--guess that's why I've been covering my bowls of froyo with them...perhaps not quite as healthy as a fiber-ful "cake" ;D

  • Mmm lemon is one of my favorite spring flavors, YUM! I may swap blueberries for strawberries and add some chia seeds [in place of poppy seeds] - whatcha think?
