Dreamy Keto Cream Cheese Chocolate Pound Cake

keto cream cheese chocolate pound cake

A Keto cream cheese chocolate pound cake recipe, that’s everything you loved about my original keto cream cheese pound cake, except that it features chocolate as the star.

My recipe for keto cream cheese chocolate pound cake was inspired by my well-loved low carb cream cheese pound cake. 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.

Keto Cream Cheese Chocolate Pound Cake

But this here keto chocolate cream cheese pound cake recipe, came to me in a dream. Yes, a dream.

Has anyone else dreamt with 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.

Is It Any Wonder That I Would Dream Up A Recipe?

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 this 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 that was dripping with layers of chocolate ganache. It was a thing of beauty I tell you.

Keto Chocolate Pound Cake

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 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.

Recipe baking time adjusted: Based on a couple of suggestions I am reducing the recipe temperature to 325 degrees and having you bake the cakes for 70-90 minutes. This should ensure that the pound cakes cook more evenly.

  1. For those that don't know, ganache is only 2 ingredients, heavy cream and chocolate. You don't need any more ingredients than that.
    • Hi Amy, although you are correct in stating that ganache uses only two ingredients chocolate and cream. It typically calls for sweetened chocolate, but in an effort to keep things easier for the low carb readers I opted to use baking chocolate and then add a sugar substitute separately. Thanks for stopping by. Just wanted you to know why I added the third ingredient. 😉
  2. The recipe calls for 2 cups and 1/4 cup of sweetener. It seems an awful lot to me Or am I missing something? I am doubling the recipe and 4.5 cups of sweetener for 5 cup of Almond flour seem so much. Please tell me if this is correct. Thanks
    • Hi Sana, The measurement for the sugar substitute is correct. You should know the recipe already makes a large batch, it makes two 8 in loaf cakes. I would not double this recipe it already makes a large batch.
  3. Very yummy and sweet. Just the right fix for my chocolate craving
  4. I made this chocolate pound cake following the ingredients and recipe perfectly. I used 2 8" loaf pans and there seemed to be lots of batter for both. They both rose in the oven and were cooked after 50 minutes...the knife came out clean. But, while I was waiting the 15 minutes of cooling before removing them from the pan, they both flopped in the center. I don't know what could have happened. They are still too hot to taste and they aren't looking good enough to frost so I will see how they are later. Perhaps the bundt pan that someone suggested would work better?
    • Hi Joy, Not sure what could have happened to cause the cake to sink. This usually happens when the oven door is opened before the cake is ready. Since every oven is different perhaps it just needed to cook for an additional 5 minutes. If you opt to bake in a bundt pan it would have to be a very large one since the cake makes enough for two cake
  5. Hilda, I will make it again and maybe just one loaf pan and cupcake? I have to say that I let the cakes cool and then tasted them. They were awesome....didn't look too good but tasted great! I actually did go ahead and make the ganache and we enjoyed a piece with dinner. I will definitely make the recipe again and cook a little longer if necessary. Thanks for your response!
    • Hi Joy, thanks for your lovely attitude. Baking with alternative flours can be quite challenging. Plus I’m just a gal who is sharing her recipes. Certainly not a pro but I aim to keep growing. Thanks again for getting back to me.
  6. Would coconut flour instead of almond flour work? Nut allergies in the home.
    • Hi Michele, I have a coconut flour version of the cake darling here’s the link https://www.fittoservegroup.com/2018/09/19/finally-a-keto-cream-cheese-coconut-flour-pound-cake/ it works perfectly. I even made a bread option by removing the sweetener
  7. I would like to try this using Lily’s chocolate chips (sugar free) rather than baking chocolate (because I have the chips on hand) - how would you suggest modifying the amount of sweetener?
    • Hi Sandra, since I haven’t made that substitution I am a little hesitant to tell you how to do the conversion. But If you are still using the cocoa powder and just subbing Lily’s chocolate I would melt the 2 ounces of chocolate chips and reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup. Hope this helps darling.
  8. Hi Hilda, thank you for the speedy reply! Yes, this is helpful, I will let you know how it turns out when I make it. Two more questions - first, I think I only have powdered Swerve on hand - will that work with equal measurements as the granulated or do I need to alter the amount? Second, could I make this into two 9" rounds or a sheet cake (9x13 for example) and if so, would the cook time need to be adjusted? THANKS! : )
    • Sandra you can use the powdered Swerve without any issue and you can bake in either of those pans. But you will have to adjust the baking time. If it’s a sheet pan maybe subtract 15 minutes from the cooking time and the two small pans subtract 20. What I would check at those times and then if it needs more time cook a little longer. I hope this helps. Do let us know once you do so others can use it as a guide. 💞
  9. Thanks for sharing at the What's for Dinner link up - and Happy Thanksgiving!
