A Keto cream cheese chocolate pound cake recipe, that’s everything you loved about my original cream cheese pound cake, except that chocolate is the star ingredient.
It’s rich, moist, and decadent! A keto chocolate pound cake that is sure to satisfy your craving for a dark chocolate cake while doing a ketogenic diet. And because it’s cream cheese chocolate pound cake, the texture is moist and dense.
My recipe for low carb chocolate pound cake was inspired by my well-loved Keto cream cheese pound cake. Do you know the one that has been pinned thousands of times and is a favorite in the keto community?
That keto cream cheese pound cake was birthed soon after Randy and I made the ketogenic diet a lifestyle choice. It was made to replace our family’s go-to cake.
I also have a keto chocolate coconut flour pound cake in case it needs to be a nut-free option.
Keto Chocolate Pound Cake
But this here keto chocolate loaf recipe, came to me in a dream. Yes, a dream. Has anyone else dreamt of a recipe before?
Make sure you remember to also check out our Keto Cream Cheese Recipes for other delicious recipes that feature cream cheese.
So, this is the first time I actually had a dream with a recipe. At least the first time that I can recall. Because for all I know, all my low carb keto creations come via dreams.
Maybe it’s just that I can’t always remember them.
I’ve heard about musicians writing songs in their dreams, and that always struck me as something special. I guess it was kinda my turn to experience something similar.
Keto Cream Cheese Chocolate Pound Cake
I think it’s fair to say that the chances of this girl dreaming up a song are slim to none. That’s the kind of experience left to maybe Randy, Michelle, or Peter the musicians in our family.
However, a dream about a keto recipe? Now that’s something I should have seen coming.
Why? Well, with all the time I spend thinking about possible new keto recipes, I can’t say it surprised me that one would eventually visit me in my dreams.
Although I may never be able to tell you what it’s like to dream up a song, I can now tell you what it’s like to write a recipe in a dream.
I remember waking up and thinking, did I just dream up a recipe for a keto cream cheese chocolate cake? Or am I just wanting chocolate again?
In the dream, I saw a glorious, rich, decadent keto chocolate pound cake (almond flour) that was dripping with layers of chocolate ganache. It was a thing of beauty I tell you.
Take a guess on what I had for breakfast that morning? Yup, a keto chocolate pound cake. Ha! Don’t you dare judge me?
Going to the kitchen to create a chocolate version of my keto cream cheese pound cake was the first thing I did that day. Maybe not before my morning devotions, but soon afterward I was ready to see it manifest.

Giving God The Glory
I’ve mentioned it before, but it’s worth repeating, how I give God ALL the glory for my recipes.
I am not saying that Jesus shows up in my kitchen and hands me a stick of butter or anything. Although, how cool would that be?
I am however saying, that I can sense Him guiding me as I formulate my recipes. That may sound odd to you, but it’s how I approach everything in my life.
The Bible says that God is interested in the details of our lives. So why not get his opinion on it all then?
The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Psalm 37:23
Once I step into my kitchen and surrender my recipe idea to Him, I enter this creative space that allows me to quickly and effortlessly come up with a low carb recipe.
I sense His delight as I combine one ingredient after another until a new recipe is birthed.
Trust me when I tell you that coming up with keto recipes, does not come easy for most food bloggers. It’s common for a recipe to take five to ten tries before finally seeing the light of day.
But I can’t say that’s been my experience. In the early days of low carb keto baking, I’ll admit it was a bit rough and I did see my share of wasted ingredients.
That is until I wised up and reminded God that if He wanted me doing this assignment, He would also have to equip me. Yes, I talk to God that way. Don’t you? Well you could you know, it’s part of having a personal relationship with Jesus.
Easy Keto Recipes
Fortunately, most of my recipes come together rather painlessly. That my friends are God’s divine favor over my life. AND why I will not take the credit for any of it.
So if you ever hear a tone of bragging in my writing as I gush over a recipe, it’s because I know who’s behind it.
Oh…and the few times I forget to include Jesus in the process, can you guess what happens? Mhmmmm, I fail miserably.
It’s a glorious thing when you decide that living smack in the middle of God’s will for your life is the only thing that really matters.
And for this girl, it’s creating a low carb, keto recipes, teaching the lifestyle, and supporting others on their journey to complete transformation.
With all that being said, I am grateful that I have the Lord to guide me on this very rewarding path.

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement
In case you don’t know, Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our lives supported by God’s grace.
So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.
Randy had been a diabetic for over 15 years and he was dealing with the consequences of this disease. I was a survivor of the Guillan Barre Syndrome and was fighting fibromyalgia and chronic sciatica.
To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation.
Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives. We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
Note that once you click the link you will be prompted to answer a few questions that ensure that you understand what this group stands for.
