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
