- 2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated erythritol or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener
- 4 large eggs
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup almond milk (or any keto-friendly milk of your choice)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Zest of 2 lemons
- Juice of 1 lemon
For the Lemon Glaze:
- 1/4 cup powdered erythritol or your preferred keto-friendly powdered sweetener
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a standard-sized loaf pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
- In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter and granulated sweetener together until light and fluffy.
- Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
- Mix in the sour cream, almond milk, vanilla extract, lemon zest, and lemon juice until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour and baking powder.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until you have a smooth batter.
- Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it evenly.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- While the cake is baking, prepare the lemon glaze by whisking together the powdered sweetener and lemon juice until smooth.
- Once the cake is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack.
- While the cake is still warm, drizzle the lemon glaze over the top.
