This pound cake stores very well in the fridge for up to 5 days, in an airtight box. You can also freeze slices of pound cake wrapped individually. When you feel like cake, defrost one piece of pound cake on a plate at room temperature.
You can glaze keto cakes using powdered sugar-free crystal sweeteners like erythritol, allulose, or Monk fruit erythritol blend.
If you don’t like your glazing too sweet, I recommend using allulose. Like any glazing, combine powdered sweetener with a liquid, like orange juice, to enhance the orange flavor or simply water.
You can play with the texture, adding more powder sweetener for a thick glazing or more liquid for runny glazing.
Note that powdered sugar-free crystal sweeteners have a similar look and texture to real icing sugar without the carbs. However, it can be overly sweet, so make sure you stick to the glazing recipe for perfect sweetness balance.
