Pound Cake With No Butter?


Pound cake

Well not quite, but we have replaced half of the butter in this easy recipe with Kelapo Coconut Oil.  Kelapo Coconut Oil has no trans fat, unlike butter!



  • 1 cup Kelapo virgin coconut oil, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk or water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest


Preheat oven to 325. Grease and flour 10″ bundt pan.

In a small bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Place sour cream and 1/2 cup milk into mixing cup, add vanilla, stir well to incorporate, set aside.

In large mixing bowl, cream coconut oil, butter and sugar until light and fluffy by mixing on medium speed. Add eggs, mix well. Add lemon zest, stirring well. Beat in flour mixture alternately with sour cream mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Spoon mixture into prepared pan.

Bake for 1 1/2 hours or until cake tests done.


Another delicious baked treat!

    I made this cake with unrefined coconut oil – has a mild coconut flavor(left out the lemon) – used two loaf pans instead of a big bundt – the only problem I had was that it stuck to the pan…could that have to do with I couldn’t wait for it to cool completely to try it? – it baked up SO pretty and smelled SO great! It was a light fluffy pound cake and tasted as good as it looked! I will make it again. oh! yes – I did not have any sour cream so I used plain yoghurt.

    I cut back on sugar to one cup and add date juice. It had a good taste but was heavy. Was it because of the sugar content? Thank.
