The Ultimate Keto Mocha Swirl Pound Cake

Keto mocha swirl pound cake

 It’s a recipe for keto mocha swirl pound cake. A marble low carb cake that features the flavor of chocolate and coffee in a rich pound cake.

My recipe for keto mocha swirl pound cake was inspired by my keto cream cheese pound cake. This cake has a vanilla base cake that features a swirl of mocha goodness. It makes the perfect keto marble cake.

The mocha flavor was easily achieved by reserving some of the cake batter and adding some cocoa powder and a little instant espresso powder.

Keto Mocha Swirl Pound Cake

As a matter of fact, when I first launched this blog, I would have laughed at the idea that any of my low carb keto recipes would go viral. Because in the early days if I had more than five people see my posts, it was considered a great day.

Surprisingly, today thousands of people are tuning in and frankly, it feels surreal.  Truly, I praise God every day that he has entrusted me with this assignment.

Apparently, my readers love easy to duplicate, delicious keto recipes. I can’t say I blame them. After all, no one wants to attempt a low carb keto recipe only for it to fail miserably.

I know all too well what that feels like. It was a pretty regular occurrence when I first embarked on the lifestyle.

When At First You Don’t Succeed

For this reason, those failed attempts cause me to be very intentional with my recipes. In the hope that they are not only delicious but easy to replicate.

Even though those early days were not fun, the fact that I stayed the course has made this journey very rewarding. Besides, if I had quit at the first sign of struggle, I would not have had the opportunity to engage with you all.

Because my low carb cream cheese pound cake was such a hit, I thought I would create a keto mocha swirl pound cake that tasted just as good as good, and was just as easy.

Doing Keto Easily

As far as I’m concerned, a low carb keto lifestyle should never leave you feeling deprived.

These days I rarely across a food item that I can’t give it a low carb keto makeover. It’s incredible what persistence can create. After all, the last thing I want to hear is that anyone trying to get healthy feels like they are missing out.

With that in mind, feel free to reach out to me with any recipe requests. It would be my honor to assist you in converting a traditional recipe into a low carb keto one.

Fast forward four years and today creating recipes like this keto mocha swirl pound cake have become a fun pastime for me. Fortunately, my family fully encourages me in this endeavor.

Of course, you don’t hear any of them complaining when asked to test one of my creations.

Fact is, they are all too eager to be my guinea pigs. What never fails to amuse me, is that even those who don’t do this lifestyle want to participate in the testing.

Can I tell you that it’s a great thing when my non-keto friends and family compliment my recipes? Listening to them say “if this is keto, sign me up”,  makes this girl want to do a little kitchen dance.

In Conclusion

To summarize, don’t let a food craving defeat you. Instead, focus on all the delicious food choices you can enjoy. Why make it about what you can’t eat, when there are so many great low carb keto options.

I sure hope you will give my keto mocha swirl pound cake recipe a try. As a reminder, please consider signing up for our newsletter via email.  And don’t forget to share our recipes with others if you find value.

Our Favorite Keto Tip

perfect keto starter bundle

Are you looking for a way to jump-start your low carb keto journey?

Can I share with you the number one tip our Fittoserve Group Community Group is using and seeing consistent results with? It’s the use of exogenous ketones

Using exogenous ketones allows you to drink your ketones and put you into a state of ketosis. Until now to get into a state of ketosis required days, perhaps weeks of very strict keto dieting.

However, with the ability to drink ketones you can see the results you want to accomplish consistently. Quickly, you can experience what it feels to be in ketosis.

Why is ketosis the goal? Because once you are in ketosis you don’t have as many cravings and your appetite diminishes significantly. In addition, you have more energy and focus on helping you to stay committed to the plan.

    Hi I am new to your site but I am falling in love with it. I absolutely love the inspirational pages!!! I just made the Pound cake listed about, I am waiting for it to cool a bit but I am thinking the middle isn't done. The top was getting too dark so I pulled it out. Any suggestions? I did a double...
    • Hi Christy so glad you are encouraged by our site. Every oven is different but how about you cover with foil and then bake at 250 degrees for another 20 minutes or so. That would do the trick ????
  2. To many comments from people who never tried it yet. I made this and it is delicious! So happy to have a Keto recipe for pound cake. Easy and will make often.
  3. Hi, Thank you for this recipe!!!! It looks so good. I've been making your original cream cheese pound on a weekly basis. My hubby loves as do I. We are both on Keto. I wanted to ask for this recipe could I skip the coffee? And also, can I just melt the chocolate as you did here an add that to your original pound cake? I've mastered it (as anyone would if your making a batch WEEKLY) and just want to add chocolate to it. ps. Love the bible verses in your posts.
    • Hi Marisol, I am glad you are enjoying this the original pound cake recipe. You can certainly leave out the coffee it's just a taste enhancer and yes you can just melt the chocolate and use it with the recipe you've already mastered. Thank you for stopping by to encourage me, darling. God bless!

    I attempted this, and it came out gooey in the center after cooling. What did I do wrong?
