LEMON COLLAGEN BUNDT CAKE

Lemon Collagen Bundt Cake

I am still on that lemon kick and not mad about it 😉 This lemon collagen bundt cake has been on my mind for a couple weeks and I finally made it happen! It’s sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and high-protein with added health benefits of collagen. Oh, and it’s downright scrumptious. My husband’s first words were “wow honey.” So that’s a good sign, right?

Did you know? Double-blind, placebo-controlled studies indicate that collagen supplementation can significantly improve skin elasticity and moisture, even reduce wrinkles! I definitely notice an improvement when I take my collagen regularly.

Collagen recommendations

This cake is made with unflavored collagen protein powder, and my favorite is LIV Body Marine Collagen! It’s highly bioavailable source of Type I collagen, which this most prevalent type of collagen in our connective tissues including skin, tendon, and bone tissue. Use my code “SARAHWILKINS” for free shipping on all LIV Body products! I wouldn’t recommend subbing whey or vegan protein powder for the collagen – these protein powders behave completely differently in baked goods. However, you can leave it out if you don’t care about the added protein! Just add one-quarter cup additional flour ;)

Flour substitutions

I used gluten-free baking flour for this recipe, but you could also use regular all-purpose flour, cake flour, cassava flour, fine oat flour, sweet white sorghum flour, or spelt flour. Plenty of options! I am not sure how coconut or almond flour would work in this recipe.

Other substitutions

This recipe calls for vegan butter, almond cream cheese, lemon juice and zest. You can totally use regular butter or coconut butter for a Paleo version. The almond cream cheese can also be swapped for full fat or reduced fat dairy cream cheese, or even unsweetened applesauce for a lower fat version. You need some fats for a tender crumb!

Sweetener substitutions

To sweeten this lemon pound cake, I used one cup of Pyure Organic Stevia Blend, which is an all-natural, calorie-free alternative to sugar. It’s similar to Truvia in that it’s twice as sweet as sugar, meaning you would need one and a half cups of sugar to achieve the same level of sweetness. If using granulated erythritol or monk fruit sweetener, you will need up to twice as much.

Lemon glaze

For the lemon glaze, it’s just lemon juice, unsweetened almond milk, and Swerve confectioner’s erythritol. Swerve is an all-natural, calorie-free alternative that measures like and acts like powdered sugar. Of course, powdered sugar would work too it just adds about 400 calories to the recipe! You can also use powdered monk fruit erythritol blend. For a richer version, try substituting one tablespoon of unsweetened almond milk with one tablespoon of melted buttery spread!

These Mediterranean Turkey Stuffed Peppers are high on the flavor charts and very filling for the calories. These peppers will not only satisfy your tastebuds, but your hunger, too!
