It’s National Lemon Chiffon Cake Day. Lemon chiffon cake has a very light, fluffy texture that people love. Because they traditionally have less saturated fat than most cakes, some people claim that they are healthier. However, it’s all cake! We love celebrating quirky holidays, but we know that lemon chiffon cake isn’t everyone’s favorite. That’s why we’re sharing four lemon dessert recipes today. We know that one of these low-carb options will hit the spot for you.
We love lemon bars. We love them as a special occasion dessert and an afternoon treat. They are a classic dessert with the shortbread crust and gooey lemon curd! A good low-carb lemon bar is hard to find. While low-carb shortbread isn’t difficult, the curd is a bit trickier. This recipe pulls it off! Plus, this recipe has a ton of great tips. While it has a lot of reading, the recommendations are extremely useful! A serving has 129 calories, 2.9 grams of carbs and 1.4 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
Anyone who has spent time on our recipe blog knows we love cheesecake. We appreciate this one because it has six ingredients and doesn’t require any baking! We’ve gotten to that odd time of the year when some days are freezing cold, and then we’ll have hot days where we have to open all the windows and let some cool air into the house. For those warm days, this is the perfect recipe. And, on top of all that, it looks beautiful and is ideal for entertaining! A serving has 249 calories, four grams of carbs and two grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
We love pound cake. The texture is wonderful and comforting. But, we hate the impact it has on blood sugar. This version has the same great texture, a lovely lemon flavor and is low in carbs! This recipe is so easy and quick to mix together. But, it does bake for a long time. So it’s better to make this one on a cold day! A serving has 174 calories, 5.1 grams of carbs and 1.2 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
Finally, we’re ending with the chiffon cake! This is the cake to make if you want to celebrate the holiday! It’s lovely, light and the texture is divine! This recipe calls for a few types of sweeteners because carb-free sweeteners are all different levels of sweetness. A big tip with this recipe that you should not ignore is that you should blend things quickly and not overmix them. You can cause the batter to become very thick and less airy when you over mix it. This is a delicate, light cake! A serving has 190 calories, 14.8 grams of carbs and 11.7 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
We hope you enjoy these recipes now and whenever you’re in the mood for a citrus treat!
