A low carb berry loaf cake made with blackberries and blueberries that is moist and light. Enjoy a slice for dessert today!
Although I made this berry loaf cake with coconut flour you could use almond flour instead. Although when you use almond flour you would need to increase the quantity and decrease the eggs. I prefer coconut flour currently as it’s cheaper for me here!
This is a moist and delicious berry loaf cake full of plump blackberries and blueberries. I used frozen but fresh would work just as a well.
Although I was tempted to add lemon juice to make this a berry and lemon cake, I wanted to try it first without. It worked well without but if I made a different version I’d just use blueberries with the lemon.
The Chief Taster enjoyed a big slice for breakfast. He is a big fan of pound cake so this was a healthier alternative for him.
