Blackberry, Lemon and Sour Cream Pound Cake (Coconut Flour)

Sharing is caring!

A moist and delicious pound cake with lemon and blackberry.

I had some blackberries and sour cream left over in the fridge and thought that I could either (a) Eat them together in a bowl (b) Make a cake.   The Chief Taster’s choice won, so I decided that I would try a pound cake out of coconut flour and added some lemon to give the cake a bit more flavour.  It was delicious, moist and tasty.  You do not need a large piece (well, perhaps, depending upon how hungry you are!) as it is very filling.

The taste combination of blackberries and lemon complemented each other nicely.    Worth trying in muffin form too I think!

    Oh dear it didn’t work for me, I followed th recipe less one egg and made sure the berries where dry and checked it was cooked after opinions with using a tooth pick it was clear then left it to dry in the tin. It turned out like a sour salty wet sponge……….i think two lemons plus salt was too much, i must have done something wrong 😕

      I’m sorry to hear that. Perhaps adjust the liquid element and reduce the eggs. My eggs are medium sized.

    This recipe says it is 4 servings. Does that mean 2 slices/serving which would be 6 net X 2???
    Or is it 8 servings of 1 slice each???

    tried this yesterday, didn’t alter the recipe at all but it ended up being an egg loaf basically.. 🙁 I hate eggs and their flavor so I couldn’t get past one bite.. hubby didn’t like it at all either and he likes eggs. I can’t tell if this is user error or the recipe.. help? I really wanted to like this.

      Hi Cassandra, sorry to hear it didn’t work. I am wondering whether it is to do with the egg size? I used fairly medium sized eggs. Perhaps yours were larger? Perhaps use 6 eggs if you try it again? Thanks for popping by!

      I agree, 8 was entirely too many eggs. I would’ve probably been better off with only 6.

        It might be the size of our eggs here! Not the biggest in the world.

    Hi made this but was cooked within an hour and top was quite crusty. In fridge overnight and was moist almost wet!!!!. Could it have been the moisture in the blackberries after washing them? Any suggestions for adding an alternative? Although checked it was cooked with a stick and looked ok could I have under cooked it.
    Like the cake but a bit drier would be nice for me anyway.

      Hi Barbara. I would try a higher oven temperature and make sure the blackberries are dry. Hope it works out!

        Morning another problem was the outside was really getting burnt so I reduced the cooking time to 1hour! Could I put nuts and raisins in or something else?

    Just wondering what kind of sour cream? Is low fat okay or full fat is better?

      All updated on the recipe page. I will try my best to do this before publishing recipes! I’ve assumed 8 slices per loaf, so adjust accordingly if you slice thinner than I do!

    As someone who counts carbs it would be nice if a recipe lists “low carb” the nutritional information would be included.

    This looks great! I’m wondering about a sweetener. I noticed you didn’t include one in the recipe. Are the berries enough sweetness?
