Almond Cranberry Pound Cake
I have a NEW holiday favorite!!! Seriously, does anyone know why it is called "Pound Cake" though?
After creating this recipe I can take a guess... because I LITERALLY wanted to pound this cake down! We actually ate so much that I had to made another batch to take pictures! Ha ha.
It's that good.
My husband was surprised how moist it was and tasted like the gluten version. You could definitely serve this to people and they WOULD NOT know it's gluten free!
I love that it's made with almond and coconut flour so it's not only gluten free but grain free as well! Almond flour is packed with great protein (among other benefits) and the coconut flour provides great fiber and is low carb. And don't even get me started on the cranberries! After you read about the benefits you'll wonder why you don't eat them everyday! In fact, cranberries are super cheap this time of year (after Thanksgiving) so you can save $ by stocking up and freezing some now.
Well, I think you're going to LOVE it! ;) So, without further ado...

Is it possible to use honey in place of the sugar? I'm trying to eat "clean"

I am allergic to coconut. Can I use reg flour or wheat flour instead?

I've done a lot of gluten-free and dairy-free baking and this is by far one of the best recipes I've come across. I made this with blueberries, since I didn't have access to any cranberries. It's so hard to believe there's no oil or butter in this recipe. I'm so excited to try it in a bunch of different flavor combinations. THANKS!!!

Is it possible to use dried cranberries instead of fresh ones?

I think the reason that it's called pound cake, is that it used to use a pound of everything to make it.

Can aquafaba be substituted for the eggs?

I substituted Truvia for the sugar and used 3/4 c blueberries. LOVE it~! About 42 net carbs for the entire recipe.
