Want a luscious Paleo dessert that’s a take on a beloved classic? Try this fluffy and soft lemon pound cake bursting with lemon flavor!

In addition to the sour citrus flavor we all love, this recipe is made with all things coconut. Coconut in all its glory and various forms has won over the hearts of many health-conscious, dairy-free people. From coconut milk to coconut oil to coconut butter, this tropical fruit keeps finding new ways to surprise us, and satisfy our needs and our health.

This take on your traditional lemon loaf is perfect for dessert, breakfast, or snacks!

Tips for best results

  • To get the best results, use pastured eggs (for maximum rising power) and quality coconut flour (should be fine-textured and cream colored, not white).
  • Make sure to get a loaf pan that’s the correct size. A standard loaf pan will make a cake that won’t rise as high, so use a pan that’s 7.5” by 3.5”.
  • Don’t forget coconut butter — it has lots of healthy coconut fats, while the maple syrup adds a delicious natural sweetness.
  • You’ll be surprised at how quickly and easily this cake comes together. Just one bowl for the cake, one for the icing, then bake, and you’re done!

It’s a dessert that will satisfy your sweet tooth on any occasion!
