Sugar-Free Pumpkin Poundcake~ (S)

DSC_0008It’s the most wonderful time of the year when the smell and taste of pumpkin is brought to life in our homes!  I’m sure you’ve noticed already that I LOVE pumpkin treats!  Pumpkin is a Fuel Pull on the THM plan which makes it so versatile and lovely.  With Thanksgiving on the horizon I wanted to make a yummy treat to take along to holiday gatherings.  It’s a wonderful breakfast as well as a dessert.  I add a pat of butter and warm it up for breakfast.  For dessert you could make a luscious cream cheese frosting using cream cheese, vanilla, plan approved sweetener and some greek yogurt.  YUMMY!  Some homemade whipped cream would be indulgent as well.

Pumpkin Poundcake

1 cup of coconut flour

1 & 1/2 cup of almond flour

1 cup of xylitol

1&1/2 tsp. of aluminum free baking powder

1&1/2 tsp. of cinnamon

1/2 tsp. of clove

1/4 tsp. of salt

3 eggs

2/3 cup of egg whites

1&1/2 tsp. of vanilla

1 can of pumpkin puree’ (15 oz)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I pre-heated the oven to 300 degrees.  Grease a 9 by 5 loaf pan very well with butter or coconut cooking spray!  I dusted the pan with almond flour but, you could also use oat fiber to coat the pan.  I mixed the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet in another.  Combine them together and mix.  I used a hand mixer to get it good and smooth.  This is a very thick batter.(it is a poundcake after all)

Bake at 300 degrees for 90 minutes! (1&1/2 hours)

Let it completely cool before you try to remove it from the pan.  I was a bit too eager! This serves 16 slices of poundcake.  I took my knife around the edge of the pan as well to loosen it.  Store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Variations:  you could add some walnuts!  I also think this would be very good in a chocolate pumpkin.  You could play with it and add in some unsweetened cocoa powder. It may need more liquid though.
