  • I feel obligated to share this cake made without almond or coconut flour

    http://www.lovingourguts.com/coconut...ut-frosting-2/

    It's made from coconut butter!
    The link has variations, as well as a recipe for a good frosting.


    Coconut Butter Cake
    1 cup honey
    2 1/2 cups coconut butter
    1/2 cup melted butter
    1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1 T vanilla
    10 eggs

    Warm your coconut butter till it is soft. If your honey is solid, warm it also to make it back into a liquid. Preheat oven to 300.
    Method for food processor:
    Blend the coconut butter and honey. Add butter, baking soda, and vanilla and blend. Add in the eggs last and blend until smooth.
    Method for Vitamix or other high power blender:
    Put in eggs first then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
    Pour into a greased 913 pan or 2 greased 88 pans and bake for 40-50 min. It is done when a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

    It DOES seem like a lot of honey, but obviously you don't have to eat this three meals a day.
    Whenever I make this fantastic base cake, I've always used homemade coconut butter, that I make by just blending unsweetened coconut flakes until they're pasty and smooth.
    I found this while literally searching "coconut butter cake". I had run out of butter but really want a yellow cake, and thought that coconut butter had to be a fatty enough base for something.
    It has a strong warm honey flavor, so if you don't like that, maybe some agave/stevia/maple syrup would be milder (or just use less).
    I'll have to post the results of my now Paleo experimentation with this.

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

        AH CRAP IT HAS EGGS IN IT

        Having an egg allergy REALLY BLOWS!

          Aw man, Patski :/ unfortunately it seems like the eggs are really needed for moisture. Maybe you could try flaxseed "eggs" with yogurt added to keep things from being too dry?

            Can't do dairy either

            I've read about the flaxseed 'eggs'. Maybe adding applesauce would make it moist? Or a banana?

              Applesauce may be good too, with some extra coconut oil to make up for the missing fat from the yolks! Or butter! I sense potential!

                I don't want to be a Debbie Downer, but aren't nearly a dozen eggs pretty difficult to replace, for structural reasons?

                  The flax "egg" is supposed to bind things pretty well. To raise it she could just increase the leavener.

                    I'm not doing butter these days either because it's "dairy".

                    I know, I know...it technically isn't. But I get a little congested after eating it.

                          Personally I just made her coconut butter sandwich bread tonight, using half almond butter half coconut butter. It it seriously so heart and bready...I can't even do it justice. Honestly fantastic.

                            I just bought some as a dip for my son who can't take nut butters to school due to allergies. They recommended the disgusting soy alternative but I knew I could do better LOL
