Grain-Free Pound Cake (nut-free)

 

 

It’s called pound cake because it originally was made with one pound of butter, one pound of eggs, one pound of sugar and one pound of  wheat flour. I kept the eggs and got rid of everything else, without compromising its taste or its dense texture.

I baked this grain-free pound cake for my daughter’s birthday and it was a total hit! It makes a small cake, but you can double the recipe and increase the baking time

 

Ingredients:
6 eggs
1/2 cup of coconut flour
12 dates
1 tbsp of vanilla
1/4 tsp of baking soda
1/4 tsp of baking powder
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1/4 tsp of sea salt

Preparation:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350
  • Using an immersion blender, food processor or regular blender mix all ingredients together, except the coconut flour, until dates are dissolved.
  • Mix in the coconut flour.
  • Pour batter into a well-greased bread loaf baking pan or a 7.5 inch round baking pan.
  • Flatten the top using a spoon or moist hands
  • Bake for  40-45 minutes, or until you can stick a knife in the cake and comes out dry.
  • Let cool, remove from mold, eat as is or decorate with vanilla cream frosting or your favorite frosting

  1. Hi Edible Harmony,
    This cake looks really yummy !
    I am going to try it but I have a problem :
    Backing powder has yeast in it and I can not use yeast. And the baking soda I don’t like the taste of it when I bake something, even not in small amount.
    Do you maybe know how I can do it without those two and still have a light texture ?

      1. I made this cake today, but instead of the dates I used bananas (they had to be eaten). I found a way to make it more fluffy 🙂 : I didn’t add the baking powder but I did add the baking soda plus 2 teaspoons of lemon … this made the cake rise 🙂

  2. I am waiting until my daughter’s first birthday in November to try this. I cannot think of giving her a store bought cake made out of refined flours and full of sugars. I simply refuse to feed my loved ones unhealthy choices.
