    Coconut Pound Cake

    Making my first pound cake was rather a challenge since this was the first pound cake I have ever baked. I didn’t make it with regular white flour, but coconut flour instead without sugar. Instead, I used Truvia. I was not too impressed by how it turned out though, but since it was my first pound cake, I let the matter go. Using coconut flour can be rather tricky in terms of how to use it for baking, because you have to sift the coconut flour and whisk the other dry ingredients well, so it turns out well. The recipe called for ½ cup plus 2 TSP of butter, which was, in my opinion, too much and 10 eggs at room temperature and 4 ounces of cream cheese, which I could’ve used coconut yogurt instead. Also, I could’ve used 5 eggs instead of 10 eggs.

    Next time I make another pound cake, I hope it turns out better than this recent one. On the other hand, this pound cake has only 288 calories per slice, which isn’t all that bad compared to a regular pound cake. Next time I will try using less eggs, butter and I’ll use yogurt instead of cream cheese. In the past, recently, I baked blueberry muffins with the same flour and they turned out delicious with a coconut flavor to them. Coconut flour has a good source of fiber in it compared to regular white flour, which is good for diabetes.

    Also, Truvia is better than using regular sugar, especially bleached-white sugar. Truvia, when added with the right amount of different ingredients, tastes just as good as regular sugar.
    Making, baking mistakes is not only costly, but you can learn from them too. So next time you make a baking mistake, don’t feel guilty about it but learn from it.
