Bobo, great shots again! I like being able to see it step by step, very thoughtful of you to do it this way and oh, the cake looks real tasty too, thanks, Bobo.

Linda, that recipe is amazing, I'll have to try it soon.

WOW!!! Congratulations! Do you have a copy of that recipe?
Maybe we could all come up with a low carb version

Of course I do LOL!!! They put it in their magazine (they actually made my cheesecake and photographed it beautifully) and sent me a copy with the check. I gave it (magazine, not check LOL) to my Mom so she could show off and brag to her friends, but the dessert is one of my family's favorites so pre-carbing I always made it for special occasions. I'll find it and post it here ... how fabulous if it could be made LOW CARB!!!

I'm surprised that you didn't think that the filling was too salty made with all cream cheese. I made a high carb tiramisu for my husband and I once and thought I'd save money by using all cream cheese instead of part cream cheese and part mascarpone. It was so salty that it wasn't edible. I seem to recall that it was going to cost me about $30 to make the recipe as it was written and using cream cheese knocked about $8.00 off the total cost.

DorianH, it's been a long time since I made that recipe but I seem to recall that the "cake" is really sort of a sponge bar cookie rather than a true cake. I think that a pound cake with orange flavoring and zest would work better for a low carb orange cake. It does have cream cheese in it though. This Coconut Bread recipe might also work for a cake and it doesn't have cream cheese in it.
Not trying to thread jack.... Great Pictures BoBo.... But this is the first opportunity I have to tell Linda Sue how wonderful her pound cake is... I remember when I first made it around 4 years ago... I was sooo happy! It was probably the FIRST LC recipe that I made that was actually good.
( I had made a lot of duds before at another web site and not every recipe in a cookbook is good if you know what I mean. Thank you Linda.

I have a soft spot in my heart for your pound cake.

Thanks Linda Sue for your great site and all of your recipes!


Thanks everyone one for listening

How about using layers of this coconut bread adding the orange zest and extract to it:



COCONUT BREAD
3/4 cup coconut flour, 2 3/4 ounces or 80 grams
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 eggs
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted, 4 ounces (see my comments below)
2 tablespoons granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda, or to taste *

Sift the first 3 ingredients into a small bowl; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients well. Add the dry ingredients and whisk until the batter is smooth with no lumps. It will look a bit like cornbread batter. Spread in a greased 8x4" loaf pan and bake at 350║ for 40 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool on a rack.

Makes 12 servings
Can be frozen

* I used the equivalent of 1/2 cup sugar in mine. I calculated the counts based on 2 tablespoons granular. You'll have to adjust yours if you use more than that.

With 2 tablespoons granular Splenda:
Per Serving: 134 Calories; 11g Fat; 4g Protein; 4g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 2g Net Carbs

With liquid Splenda:
Per Serving: 133 Calories; 11g Fat; 4g Protein; 4g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 2g Net Carbs

With 1/2 cup granular Splenda:
Per Serving: 137 Calories; 11g Fat; 4g Protein; 5g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 3g Net Carbs

With liquid Splenda:
Per Serving: 133 Calories; 11g Fat; 4g Protein; 4g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 2g Net Carbs

I am so making this orange cake for my DH birthday in Feb. He loved the Banana Split Cake so much and since his favorite flavor is orange, I just know he will love this too. I like the idea of the SF Marmlade too. BoBo is a man who knows a great dessert! I'm pulling up all of his dessert recipes and making a folder for those special occasions like Valentines, Birthdays, Fourth of July, Anniversay, Thanksgivng, Christmas, New Year's Day,,,,,,,,

I am going to make this tonight. I am having a rough time with all of the Halloween candy around. I saw Red Vines (Gasp! My favorite!) in the row while I was picking out candy to give out, and felt so sad... but I did walk away. Orange Cream cake will make me feel better!
