Ingredients
Dry Ingredients
  • 2/3cup coconut flour
  • 2/3cup arrowroot powder
  • 2/3cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 3/4cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1/2tsp baking soda
  • 1/2tsp baking powder
  • 1/4tsp fine sea salt
Wet Ingredients
  • 5 eggs at room temperature
  • 1/2cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/3cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
Chocolate Frosting
  • 1cup Spectrum Organic non-hydrogenated palm shortening
  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 1cup organic coconut palm sugar
  • 1/4cup unsweetened coco powder
Instructions
  1. Frosting Instructions: In a mixing bowl combine all of the frosting ingredients with a handheld mixer.
  2. Cake Instructions: Preheat the oven to 325°F. Add the dry ingredients to a medium-size mixing bowl and combine. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs then add the rest of the wet ingredients and mix. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and combine using a spatula being careful not to overmix the batter. Pour the batter into a greased cake pan and bake, 30-35 minutes (depending on the depth of pan) or until a toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean. Allow to cool, then transfer to a plate. Cover with chocolate frosting and decorate with dairy-free chocolate chips (optional).
