I know you might be thinking that I’m a kill-joy by taking away all the gluten, dairy, grains and refined sugar from a celebration treat like a birthday cake, but believe me, it’s not a treat when you’re eating your weight in cake for 4 months straight (like we usually are because all the birthdays in our family fall between September and January).
Plus my cakes are so delicious that you wont miss the bad stuff, I promise.
This no refined sugar, paleo, gluten free, dairy free AND nut free double layer chocolate cake was such a hit, I had people paying me to make and decorate them for several kids birthday parties.
It has a chocolate cake, a laminton cake and a hummingbird cake, complete with ICING!!! You can mix and match the different icings and change the flavours, like I left out the cinnamon and pineapple in the hummingbird cake (the pale cake with dinosaurs) and added raspberries to the cake and freeze dried strawberries to create the rose topped cake.
Paleo Double Layer Chocolate Cake
6 eggs 1 cup coconut oil 1 ripe banana 1/3 cup coconut sugar 1/2 raw cacao 1/2 cup coconut flour 3/4 cup tapioca starch 1 teaspoon bi carb soda pinch of salt
Make Me Up
Pre-heat your oven to 180deg C. Meanwhile, in the bowl of your thermomix or blender, place your 6 eggs and 1 cup coconut oil. Blitz together on high until pale, thick and creamy. Then add your very ripe banana and blitz again until the banana is well incorporated.
Now add all your dry ingredients, coconut flour, tapioca starch, cacao, coconut sugar, bi carb and mix on medium speed until all the dry ingredients are incorporated into the wet.
Divide the mixture equally between two lined 15cm cake tins. Bake in your 180degC pre-heated oven for 20-35min, or until the cake has risen and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Turn your cakes out onto wire racks to cool completely. You can top the cake with fresh fruit like berries or a chocolate avocado mousse or raw chocolate fudge, recipes in my cookbook, Eat like a Cosmopolitan Hippy.
