Chocolate Coconut Cake

I took this chocolate coconut cake to my family Christmas yesterday and it was so good! It is gluten free, grain free, dairy free, egg free, and can be vegan with a couple simple ingredient changes.



Cake Ingredients:

3/4 cup coconut flour

1 1/2 cups almond flour

1/4 cup tapioca flour

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

2/3 cup coconut sugar

1 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup melted butter or ghee (use coconut oil for a vegan cake)

1/4 cup honey (use maple syrup for a vegan cake)

1 cup water

1 tsp vanilla extract


Frosting Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups Wholesome Sweeteners Icing Sugar

2 tbsp coconut milk

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

Shredded coconut for sprinkling on top


Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Line a round, 8 inch cake pan with parchment paper.

3. Mix all your dry ingredients together in a bowl.

4. In another bowl, mix your water, honey, oil, vanilla and vinegar. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix everything together until smooth.

5. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

6. Remove and let cool before icing.

7. To make the frosting, simply whisk the icing sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and coconut milk together in a bowl. After spreading the frosting onto the cake you can sprinkle some shredded coconut.
