Keto Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Every year I make it a point to add at least a couple more low carb keto pumpkin recipes to our recipe collection, this despite having already a few great pumpkin options. But somehow I always feel the need to outdo myself. It’s why I decided to create this keto pumpkin cream cheese pound cake that features a maple cinnamon flavored icing on the first day of September.

Creating More Keto Cream Cheese Recipes

This year I wanted to see if I could turn my popular keto cream cheese pound cake into a pumpkin spice version. After all, anytime I use that low carb pound cake as inspiration, I am able to give you another yummy keto treat.

Plus if there is something I’ve learned, is that using cream cheese in low carb keto baking adds a lot of stability and makes things much easier when using non-gluten flour alternatives. So yeah there’s that.

Wondering just how much this girl loves cream cheese and why it’s the key ingredient in this keto pumpkin cream cheese pound cake? Then take a look at the large and growing number of recipes that feature cream cheese on our site.

If that huge list is not enough proof that this girl loves to cook low carb keto with cream cheese, I don’t know what is?

With all those keto cream cheese recipes under my belt, I was certain a keto pumpkin cream cheese pound cake could be birthed. And I’m thrilled to report that the recipe worked like a charm.

It took just a few simple tweaks to my basic keto cream cheese pound cake to create a keto pumpkin pound cake option for you. That and of course me praying for the download from heaven right before. Yes, my lovely peeps, I pray EVERY time I make a new recipe and it’s why I believe they turn out so well. Ha!

My keto pumpkin cream cheese pound cake is moist and has a lighter texture than my low carb pumpkin loaf recipe because that’s more of a quick bread recipe. This recipe is definitely more of a cake.

Since I really love giving you as many options as possible, I am pretty adamant about growing my pumpkin recipe list for you.

Baking With Bundt Pans

I opted to make my keto cream cheese pound cake recipe in mini bundt pans. For one, they look adorable. Plus, the use of a bundt pan, small or large seems to make dessert just a tad more special. Don’t you agree?

Although I made mine in mini bundt pans, you can certainly make this recipe in a 10- inch bundt pan if you prefer.

I used to bake many of my cakes in bundt pans. It was a foolproof way of baking a cake and allowed for easy slicing and a nicer presentation. But this girl finally wore-out her 10-inch pan bundt pan after years of use.

Given my love for baking cakes in bundt pans, it surprised me that I had not replaced it. However, right around the time, Randy’s diabetes was out of control and my health was also a failing mess. So baking of any kind took a major backseat until we found the ketogenic lifestyle. You can read more about our journey below.

Keto Maple Cinnamon Icing

Because I can’t seem to leave good enough alone, I also drizzled the mini keto pumpkin cream cheese bundt cakes with a decadent maple cinnamon icing. Just to make sure that you would be completely blown away with this keto pumpkin cake recipe.

And I decided to add a little orange dye to the icing, totally optional. I did so to highlight the fact that these make a perfect keto fall dessert, and for prettier pictures of course.

Although icing these mini bundt pans is not a requirement, I thought I would share the recipe in case you wanted to make this keto pumpkin cream cheese pound cakes extra, extra special.

Not only did I want to dress up my keto pumpkin bundt cakes, but I also wanted an excuse to try this low carb maple syrup in a recipe. With only 1 net carb per serving, I couldn’t resist using it to make a keto maple cinnamon icing. Just look at how lovely the icing flows down the cake’s ridges?

And boy am I glad I did. Just a little of this sugar-free maple syrup goes a long way in providing flavor. Plus the viscosity the syrup provides helps the icing be more fluid.

[Special note, make sure when making this or any other of our pumpkin recipes, that you are using pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling. The pumpkin puree is just that and has no added ingredients, while the pumpkin pie filling is loaded with sugar and their own set of spices.

So don’t make the mistake of using the wrong one, otherwise, you will certainly be kicked out of ketosis because of all those extra carbs.

Keto Maple Icing


Keto Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pound Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously butter the 16 mini bundt pans. Or one large 10 inch pan.
  2. Sift together the almond flour, cinnamon powder, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, ground clove, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Beat on high using a stand-up mixer or a handheld mixer, the softened butter, cream cheese, both sugar substitutes, vanilla extract. Beat for 2-3 minutes or until light and creamy.
  4. Add the pumpkin puree and mix just until well incorporated.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time alternatively with the dry ingredients mixing thoroughly after each addition. Scrape the sides of the bowl periodically.
  6. Pour the cake batter evenly into the prepared pan(s).
  7. Bake about 20- 25 minutes if using the mini bundt pans and if using the one 10 inch bundt pan bake for 45-60 minutes. Or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Keto Maple Icing

  1. In a small bowl add the powdered sugar substitute ( I used Swerve confectioners)
  2. To the 1 cup powder sugar-substitute add the teaspoon of cinnamon powder and combine well.
  3. Whisk in the 8 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream making sure to fully incorporate the mixture.
  4. Lastly, add the 2 tablespoons of lakanto sugar-free maple syrup and mix well. Add more heavy whipping cream if the icing is too thick.
  5. Note: The Keto Maple Icing has less than one net carb per serving. This is because the lakanto syrup has 1 net carb per 2 tablespoons serving and the Swerve confectioners sugar is not counted in the net carbs. Read more about why you don't carb count the carbs in an erythritol sweetener like Swerve.


Bake about 20- 25 minutes if using the mini bundt pans and if using the one 10 inch bundt pan bake for 45-60 minutes. Or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Note: The Keto Maple Icing is optional it has less than one net carb per serving. This is because the lakanto syrup has 1 net carb per 2 tablespoons serving and the Swerve confectioners sugar (erythritol)is not counted in the net carbs.
