Grain Free Vanilla Cake

This has become my go-to cake for birthdays! Whether you are serving it decorated with buttercream icing, homemade whipped cream and berries or just as-is, this cake is always a party favorite.  This recipe makes one 8″ layer.

ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut cream the 5.4oz can of Native Forest Organic Coconut Cream is perfect
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
  • Scant 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup – optional totally not necessary. just makes it sweeter! I skip this if I’m frosting the cake.

instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, coconut cream, vanilla extract and coconut sugar and maple syrup (if using).
  3. In a smaller bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, salt and baking soda.
  4. Mix dry ingredients into wet with a handheld mixer.
  5. Grease an 8” cake pan and pour in batter.
  6. Bake for 40 minutes
  7. Cool for 1 hour

Recipe Notes

Makes one 8” round cake. Repeat for layer cake.

On this particular cake we used a standard American Buttercream. It’s just butter, organic powdered sugar, a bit of milk (non dairy milk works perfectly, too) and extracts – vanilla + almond puts it over the top! It is very sweet but there are other buttercream frostings that are less so.
