Coffee Cake (Paleo, Keto Option)

It's a new week! Happy Monday, friends.

Gosh, this is a crazy week for us here in Texas. I have my Nutritional Therapy midterms coming up in two weeks, along with a move. CRAM. CITY. Takes me back to the good old days of studying for my undergraduate degree on minimal sleep and far too much caffeine.

Anyway, I'm absolutely in love with this recipe. I know that typically, coffee cake is meant to have a crumbly cinnamon and brown sugar topping, but this isn't a typical coffee cake. It's a moist grain-free and sugar-free sponge cake infused with strong brew and slathered in creamy buttercream frosting. Perfect for tea time! 

Coffee Cake

Ingredients:

4 eggs

1/2 cup full fat coconut milk

1/4 cup coconut butter

1/2 brewed coffee (strong)

1/4 cup sweetener of choice (we used maple syrup)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 cup coconut flour

1 tablespoon baking soda

pinch of salt

1 cup dark chocolate chips

Frosting:

1/2 cup grass-fed butter or coconut oil

1/4 cup sweetener of choice

3 tablespoons strong brew coffee

3 teaspoons tapioca starch

2 teaspoons coconut flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method:

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a cake pan with coconut oil or grass-fed butter.

2) In a large bowl, whisk eggs, coffee, coconut milk, coconut butter, vanilla extract and sweetener.

3) In a separate bowl, mix almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt.

4) Add dry and wet ingredients and mix until smooth.

5) Add chocolate chips.

6) Bake for 40 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Leave aside to cool.

7) While the cake is cooling, make your frosting. In a food processor, mix all frosting ingredients until smooth.

8) Frost cake and enjoy! We topped our cake with cocoa dusted coffee beans- so yummy!
