2. My Favorite Chocolate Cake Recipe
A cake that’s totally grain free and yet packs everything awesome about chocolate together is surely a rare to find phenomenon. Featuring a cake of a conventional chocolate cake, but is a little less sweeter than one. However, we love how it isn’t heavy on th coconut flour unlike most cakes, simply stealing the show with the shredded coconut that goes for the garnishing on top. The other chief ingredients that the cake calls for are coconut flour, almond, grain-free baking powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, full-fat coconut milk, honey, large eggs, and a little vanilla extract. You can always replace the coconut decor on top with some powdered sugar. Tastes amazing when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some whipped cream, specially for the kiddos.
