Keto Key Lime Pound Cake

When I think of pound cake I think of butter and butter and more butter! I know the original pound cake is 1 pound of everything, butter, sugar, flour. This one I have made is not only #keto but also #lowcarb and #gluten free!

The best thing about this cake is that it is just the right amount of sweetness so you can enjoy it as a snack or even a treat with your coffee in the morning! It is all kept keto with a box of Simply Delish Lime Jel!

You will be pleasantly surprised how the Simply Delish Lime Jel adds so much lime flavor to this bread and also lends a moisture to it that helps it keep together and not fall apart!
