Pound Cake is one of those things that you don't normally associate with weight loss.
I saw a picture of “regular” chocolate chip pound cake drizzled in some sort of sauce on Pinterest the other day and thought “I can do that!”
Unfortunately, that meant actually clicking through to the recipe to learn about the proportions of ingredients that author used so I could modify them for this Trim Healthy Mama Chocolate Chip Pound Cake.
Low-carb flours like the Almond Flour used here are tricky because they absorb a LOT of liquid and they need some extra help with lift from Baking Powder to keep from being too dense to eat.
It took me a few tries to get the ratio right, but I'm so excited to share this final recipe with you because it's sooo good!
It's got just the right pound cakey texture, the chocolate chips stay evenly dispersed throughout, and the caramel drizzle is perfect complement to the whole package.

What would I use as a substitute for the Gentle Sweet? Your link to Amazon shows the product is unavailable, so I want to make sure I use something that won’t affect the recipe.
What sized loaf pan do you use for this recipe? an 8×4 or a 9×5?? thanks
