If you ever go to Florida, you can’t go back without a piece of key lime pie. It’s a popular treat among locals and needless to say, it’s tastes great. There’s even a key lime pie festival held in the state each year – that’s how big the dessert is in sunny Florida.
There are many fillings and toppings and different ways to prepare the treat. Some say it should be cooked, others say it should be fresh. There’s even a light key lime pound cake you can try if you’re health conscious and trying to lose weight.
Light Key Lime Pound Cake
- 1/3 cup key lime juice
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- 3 ½ cups almond flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ cup butter
- ¾ cup stevia
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 teaspoons key lime zest
- 4 eggs
- ½ a teaspoon of salt
Mix the baking powder with salt and both flours. Whip the butter with stevia, then beat the eggs nicely. Half of the almond flour mixture goes in next. Mix the lime juice and zest with the almond milk, then add in the remaining almond flour mix.
Grease a 9×5 pan and pour the mixture on it. Leave it like that for 45 minutes. Bake it afterwards at 325F for 60 minutes covered with foil. Once the edges are golden brown and the top is firm, your cake is ready. Let it cool down completely.
Next comes the blaze. Here’s how to prepare it:
- 2-3 teaspoons key lime juice
- 3 tablespoons Stevia
Just whisk both ingredients and drizzle the mix onto the cake. Remember – the cake must be fully cooled before the glaze comes on.
