Coconut Flour Grapefruit Pound Cake *

This coconut flour pound cake recipe is wonderfully delicate and moist. The grapefruit juice and yogurt combined really gives the cake a sweet, yet tart flavor. It would be just as delicious with lemon, lime, or orange juice/zest. If you are not on a sugar-free diet, feel free to sweeten this with some raw honey in place of the stevia.

  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup whole milk yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • zest of 1 large grapefruit (about 3 tsp)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp NuNaturals NuStevia™ White Stevia™ Powder
  • 1 cup coconut flour, sifted

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan with coconut oil, line the bottom of the loaf pan with parchment paper. Grease, with coconut oil, and flour the pan using coconut flour.

In a large bowl beat the eggs with a wire whisk; next add the vanilla, yogurt, salt, and grapefruit juice and zest, mix until combined. Add the melted butter in a constant stream, mixing continuously.

Using a spoon or spatula fold in the dry ingredients to the wet – baking powder, baking soda, stevia powder, and sifted coconut flour. Mix well after each addition.

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of cake comes out clean. Let cake cool for 5 minutes in pan. Invert on a cooling rack and let cool completely……if you can wait that long 🙂

Makes 1 loaf.

  1. This did not work out for me at all. It tasted awful and very grainy. I used trader joe’s stevia powder, that was the only thing that was different. I’m not sure if it was that or if the flour was not sifted enough. Bummed I wasted 5 good eggs :/

    • Sorry to hear you had issues. Do remember when trying out new ways of cooking with new ingredients you may have to experiment. It is sort of like driving to a new area, you have the map, and how to get there, but you could still have some issues. A note, if your pound cake was grainy watch the packing of the flour as this is a sign of graininess. So you might be on track with the sifting.

  2. Hi, I tweaked your pound cake recipe and blogged about it. You have a beautiful site! Thank you for the inspiration, and keep up the healthy cooking. 🙂
