Paleo Coffee Cake

Paleo Coffee Cake
I love coffee cake because it's different than traditional cake with icing. This has a great topping to it that always seems to get marbled in the middle of the cake as well. I love chocolate, but coffee cake with cinnamon is divine! I'm trying hard to use less sugar since I'm going more primal/paleo and thought this would be a good recipe to try. Four people have given this a thumb's up! Yay!
Original recipe found here.


Ingredients:
Cake1/2cup unsweetened coconut milk in the can
2 eggs
1/4cup raw local honey
1tsp vanilla
2cups almond flour
1/2cup arrowroot powder
1/2tsp baking soda
1/2tsp salt

Swirl
2Tbsp cinnamon
1/4cup coconut oil (or ghee)
3Tbsp honey
1/4cup chopped pecans (not pictured.. I forgot to add them!)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, add the cake ingredients and mix thoroughly. Add to greased 8x8 pan, or make it into bread and add to a loaf pan. Add the swirl mixture to the top and bake 25-30 minutes or until it's golden brown.



Eat and Enjoy!

    1. I agree. It is wonderful! You could also make this into muffins and put a little cinnamon 'glaze' on top of each muffin and bake the same way.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This has become my favorite paleo cake recipe! I love the flavor and the texture. I would not hesitate to serve this to non-paleo guests. Last time I made it, I omitted the swirl and added big chunks of fresh fruit. Delicious!!
