Gluten Free Pound Cake

This week I had the blessing of being sent some Coconut flour from Bobs Red Mill. I was excited to work with it because I had been doing reading lately about Coconut Flour and how it is very high in fiber, low in digestible carbohydrates, a good source of protein and gluten free.
While I was given a free sample of the flour. I was not paid for my view on this product and anything I write here about it is 100% my opinion. 
I love this flour. With it's sweet flavor, not as much sugar is needed in sweets. I thought it would make things taste like coconut. I have made several things with this flour now and I would not even know there was coconut flour in it. My experience with this flour is it makes things sweet and light. I love this product and want you to be able to try it too. So who wants to win a $50 gift card to spend at Bobs Red Mill? Try out the coconut flour, or their great other gluten free products. This $50 gift card can be used on anything they sell on their site at  http://www.bobsredmill.com
