How To Make A Keto Orange Pound Cake
To make a delicious keto pound cake, you need some fundamental keto pantry ingredients.
- Almond flour or almond meal. Prefer fine almond flour, it’ll give this bread the best texture. Learn how to pick the best keto flour.
- Coconut flour – don’t replace it with more almond flour, or your bread texture will be too moist. This flour combo is the key to the best pound cake texture.
- Erythritol or any sugar-free crystal sweetener like allulose or xylitol, use my keto sweetener converter tool to know how much of another sweetener you need for this recipe.
- Coconut oil – while the recipe works with melted butter too, I recommend melted coconut oil for the best flavor and texture.
- Orange juice – use fresh organic oranges. Organic oranges are better because their skin is not treated, and therefore, it’s safe to use the grated zest from them.
- Orange zest
- Baking powder
- Powdered erythritol – for the glazing.

Making Sugar-Free Glazing?
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.
Can I Have Oranges On A Keto Diet?
When used in small amounts, oranges are keto-friendly fruit, perfect for adding sweetness to your keto baking.
