If you didn’t know it already, September is Childhood Obesity Month, so in observance of this month I made a recipe incorporating Monk Fruit In The Raw into one of my favorite recipes. I love making recipes healthier without reducing the taste, and Monk Fruit In The Raw did just that. My recipe turned out great, and I barely noticed a difference. My girls LOVED it just the same. When baking reduce your sugar to half, and add half of Monk Fruit In The Raw. This insures that your baked goods will rise and brown appropriately. In any other recipes besides baking, you can replace sugar cup to cup!

Monk Fruit In The Raw is a zero calorie sweetener. It is made with real fruit! 1 tsp is just 0 calories, where as sugar is 15 calories per teaspoon. It may not seem like a big difference, but when using it in recipes, the calories really add up when you’re using sugar! Monk Fruit In The Raw is made without table sugar, sugar alcohols (erythritol), or molasses.

A few months back, my girls and I went to the local blueberry farm and we picked a gallon of blueberries.

I of course froze most of them so I could use them over the upcoming months in recipes. One of our favorite blueberry recipes is Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake, so I thought I’d give it a try with Monk Fruit In The Raw instead of just all sugar. I’m rather impressed with how it turned out!

BlueberryCreamCake

Ingredients:
1 1/2 Cups of Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
3 oz of Cream Cheese (room temp)
4 oz of unsalted butter (room temp)
3/4 cup of sugar
3/4 cup of Monk Fruit In The Raw
4 Large Eggs (room temp)
1 tsp Vanilla or Vanilla Extract
1 cup of blueberries

Directions:
Pre-heat the oven to 325. You will need a loaf pan, they are about 8×5.
With a mixer, cream together the butter, cream cheese, sugar, and Monk Fruit In The Raw. Beat until fluffy.
Once combined, mix in the eggs, one at a time.
Next add the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together.
Turn your mixer on low, and slowly combine the dry ingredients into the wet.
Do NOT mix all the way. Turn off, and grab a rubber spatula.

Pour in your blueberries, and gently fold until just combined.
Turn over into a well greased loaf pan.

Bake at 325, for 60-65 minutes if you’re using fresh blueberries, or 75-90 minutes if they are frozen.
It will be done when golden brown, and a toothpick comes out clean from the middle.
Let the cake cool for 10-15 minutes before taking out of the pan.
Take out of pan and make a glaze or just slice and eat like it is! I just made a little glaze with a little bit of powdered sugar, Monk Fruit In The Raw, a touch of vanilla, and a splash of milk to the desired consistency.

For your convenience, Monk Fruit In The Raw comes in individual packets, which is great for on the go, and in a Bakers Bag for easy measuring for recipes. Monk Fruit In The Raw is great for moms who are looking to cut calories and added sugar, without sacrificing taste for their family.
You can find Monk Fruit In The Raw in the baking aisle at your local supermarket.

  13. This looks fantastic! I haven’t tried Monk Fruit before. But I am going to look for it. I think it’s great that it has zero calories and is made from fruit. We have been working on cutting down our sugar intake. It amazes me how many foods have sugar that you would never think! Thanks for the recipe and the Monk Fruit info!

  14. Wow! That pound cake looks like it just melts in your mouth. I would really love to make this recipe and have it turn out like yours. I have never heard of monk fruit before but like that it has zero calories.

  15. Cathy French says:

    I love pound cake and really love blueberries. This recipe is just right for us, I can’t wait to try it

  16. Your cake looked really delicious!!! I’ve printed it out so that I have it to use at a later date! I’ve always wondered what Monk Fruit in the Raw was. I’ve seen it and never knew what it really was until now! I may just have to purchase some to use in your recipe & some of my own! I’ve tried “Splenda” in a recipe and it flopped! So, I stopped trying to bake with artificial sweeteners. But, after seeing your cake and the use of Monk Fruit, I’m going to give it another shot (once I purchase the Monk Fruit). Thanks so much for sharing this with all of us! I loved the picture of your daughters picking Blueberries too! I’ve learned something new today and that’s a good thing! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

  17. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe with us. It looks delicious.

  18. I have never tried this sweetener, I will have to check it out. This looks so good.

  19. I’ve never tried pound cake before. I did pick up the ingredients today at the store. So, I hope mine comes out looking as good as your does.

  20. Great recipe and looks like something I would love to try. Easy and delicious doesn’t get better than that.

  21. I haven’t heard of Monk Fruit before but will be checking to see if my store carries it. Thanks for the recipe. Looks so good and we love blueberries.

  22. I have never heard of a sweetener that did not have some sugar using just fruit..fabulous

  23. Blueberry baked goods are sublime, and I’m intrigued by this Monk Fruit in the Raw stuff. A sweetener made of fruit sounds great and should be free of all the side effects of most artificial sweeteners. Thanks for the info!

  24. Mmm this looks so good! I love making homemade breads, scones, and muffins and blueberry is definitely a favorite of the whole family! I will definitely have to make this for my family soon!

  25. I too, didn’t realize that September was Childhood Obesity Month. I love to make homemade goods around the holidays & I am looking for healthier recipes. I am gong to make this – less sugar is GREAT – especially since I’m a Diabetic. Blueberries & Pound Cake, 2 ingredients that make this recipe a winner to me!!

  26. I have never heard of monk fruit, but your blueberry cream cheese cake sounds so delicious even without it. I live alone, but I am going to try to recreate your success. Thank you

  27. That looks amazing! We love Blueberry baked goods!

  28. Rose Paden says:

    I have never heard of Monk fruit before. The end result looks so good! We don’t eat much pound cake but i don’t think I can resist making this one!

  34. I wanted to let you know that I made the blueberry pound cake and it was a tremendous hit with the family. Thank you for sharing and teaching me about Monk Fruit in the Raw.

  35. Sarah Elyce says:

    This looks amazing! I want to make it and will try it with the Monk Fruit in the Raw.

  36. This looks so good! I love everything Blueberry and they’re so good for you too. I’ve never heard of Monk Fruit in the Raw before, I’m going to have to look for it. What a sweet picture of your pretty girls too.

  37. I have never heard of Monk Fruit in the Raw. I will have to look for this the next time I am out. Thank you for sharing

  38. Wow, this pound cake looks really delicious. We have two birthdays coming up, plus the holidays of course, and I’m thinking this would make a really good festive breakfast or dessert for those special occasions.

  39. I’ve heard of monk fruit and seen it in the stores but never purchased it. I love this recipe and can’t wait to purchase it!

  40. This pound cake looks beautiful and delicious! I can’t wait to try it – using Monk Fruit in the Raw, of course!

  41. I adore pound cake and this looks lovely (also aren’t your kids cute!); yet I can’t help but think that it doesn’t need the monk fruit at all if you have the sugar or vs versa.

  42. Wow, the blueberry cheesecake pound cake looks amazing. I have never tried Monk in the Raw, I’m gonna put it on my list!! Gonna save this recipe!!

  43. I had to run to the grocery store last week to pick up milk, bread, butter, and just what we needed. They had a sale on Blueberries and I remembered your recipe that looked so good and I wanted to try. I was in a different grocery store this time and checked out the price of their Monk Fruit in the Raw. It was priced higher than the other store I checked. So, I didn’t get to purchase it again. I came home with the blueberries and was looking at your recipe and decided I was going to make it with regular sugar. WOW! It came out so nice and was a big hit here! Everyone enjoyed it. I made a drizzle for the top like you mentioned and it looked terrific when it was cooling, however, my hubby just had to cut it and then put some butter on it to eat! I yelled at him and said that he didn’t need the butter! I guess men just can’t wait for something that looked and smelled so good! Thanks so very much for the recipe! I truly appreciate it! Once I’m able to spend more at the grocery store, I’m going to purchase the Monk Fruit in the raw and give it a try without telling anyone and see if they notice any difference! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

  44. Barbara Adams says:

    When I first heard of Monk Fruit I was suspicious…the variety of new foods introduced weekly is overwhelming . A bit pricey, but in the end, I believe a justifiable expense, as the product is good stuff.

  45. I’ve never tried monk fruit before. Is it a super sweet form of sugar? This recipe sounds good.I always see blue berries, when they’re in season and never know what to do with them. I’m going to try this recipe.

  46. I really do love your recipe for your Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake! I have the recipe but, whenever I get to a grocery store and look for the Monk Fruit Sweetener, it’s always so expensive! I have been looking at this recipe in my kitchen now for a long time and I so much want to make it! I may just end up using splenda or regular sugar so that I can make it! I wish that the Monk Fruit was not so expensive or that it would be on sale whenever I get to shop. I’m only budgeted so much money to get groceries because we are so tight right now and I can’t justify that purchase at the moment! I sure wish I could make it your way. I could always put it off since I’ve got to get my act together and start baking for Christmas. I was able to get what I needed to make nut rolls, cherry cheese tarts, and some other different kinds of cookies! Tim’s been bugging me as to when I’m going to get off the computer and work on it! Maybe I’ll take your recipe and put it away in the recipe box until I am able to do it justice and make it your way! Thanks so much for that recipe and one day I will be making it! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

  47. Thanks for the review of Monk Fruit in the Raw and the recipe for Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake. I was wondering about this sweetener so this was helpful. I pinned the recipe to make later.

  48. This looks so good! It seems healthy too.

  49. I love blueberries AND pound cake…so this is definitely the perfect recipe for me! Can’t wait to try it!

  53. Joanne Gregory says:

    This looks like a winner! And it would be a favorite at my house with the combo of pound cake, blueberries and cream cheese!

  54. I am really enjoying my gift pack I won of these. My family even really likes it. I can’t say how much I appreciate this gift because I found something new I really like.

  55. laura rubenstein says:

    This looks amazing! I would def make this pound cake. I have never heard of Monk Fruit In The Raw but I would try it.

  56. I love blueberries and anything with cream cheese in it. This looks amazing!

  57. Thanks so much for the delicious recipe on Monk Fruit In The Raw – Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake Recipe! This looks so Yummy! I have saved the recipe but not yet had the chance to make it yet. I have not had the opportunity to try the Monk Fruit in the raw yet either! With our financial situation, I can only purchase what I absolutely Need and not necessarily what I want! I do, however, have 2 nice size bags of blueberries in the freezer. I think I also have some cream cheese as well. I could make it if I used all regular sugar. But that defeats the purpose of your recipe! Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe on Monk Fruit In The Raw – Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake Recipe with all of us! You know that I definitely appreciate it! Thanks again! Michele 🙂

  58. I had to pin Blueberry pic #6! This Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake recipe sounds & looks delicious!! I love both blueberries & pound cake – plus combining them together is brilliant, but I never had cream cheese as an ingredient. It looks like it works though. YUM!!

  59. I’ve tried many sweeteners, but not monk fruit in the raw. This recipe is the perfect one to give it a try. It looks delish!
