6 Large eggs
¼ Cup honey or pure maple syrup
½ Cup extra-virgin coconut oil, melted
¾ cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 Teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ Cup coconut flour
½ Cup almond flour
½ Cup cocoa powder (We LOVE our Dutch Chocolate – Click Here)
½ Teaspoon salt
½ Teaspoon baking soda
¼ Teaspoon pure monk fruit sweetener (Click Here for the concentrate we use)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, mix the eggs with a whisk. Add the honey or syrup, oil, milk, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla. Whisk well until combined.
In another medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and monk sweetener. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients while mixing. The flours may clump, so using a mixer can speed up the process, but a fork will work if you’re careful to stir until all clumping is gone and mixture is well combined.
Spoon the batter into a greased 8×8 baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes until very center is cooked when tested with a sharp knife or toothpick. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes.
NOTE: Cake is most delicious served when just cooled to room temperature. Store leftovers in fridge or freezer as the high egg content would not be safe left out. It is still delicious cold.
Raspberry Topping Directions:
Using organic frozen raspberries, place 20 ounces in a small saucepan and heat slowly to a very low boil stirring often until all the excess liquid reduces (about 7-10 minutes). Stir in 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup and 1/4 teaspoon monk fruit sweetener. Allow to cool and then top each piece of cake.
P.S. You can use leftover as a raspberry jam on your ELT English Muffins!
