Low-Calorie Pound Cake Ideas for Summer

Multiple Blue Rings

Whole Wheat Flour Base

Opt for whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour to increase fiber content and reduce calories in your pound cake.

Natural Sweeteners

Use natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, or stevia to sweeten the cake without adding refined sugars and extra calories.

Greek Yogurt Substitute

Replace butter or oil with plain Greek yogurt to lower fat content while adding protein and moisture to the cake.

Egg Whites

Use only egg whites or a combination of egg whites and whole eggs to reduce cholesterol and saturated fat.

Fresh Fruit Additions

Incorporate fresh summer fruits such as berries, peaches, or citrus zest to enhance flavor and sweetness without increasing calorie count.

Citrus Zest

Add zest from lemon or orange to infuse citrus flavor into the cake without adding extra fats or sugars.

Coconut Flour Blend

Include almond flour or coconut flour to add nutty flavor, increase protein, and boost fiber content while keeping the cake light.

Reduced-fat Milk

Choose skim milk or almond milk instead of whole milk to decrease calorie and fat content while maintaining moisture.
