Paleo-Pound-Cake

Awesome paleo and gluten-free recipe for a dense but lightly textured pound cake.

Yield :

  • 10 slices | Serving Size: 1 slice |

Ingredients :

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk (canned is best…lite or whole will work)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. orange extract
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. sea salt
  • Coconut oil for pan
  • Berries:
  • -Strawberries
  • -Blackberries

Preparation :

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350
  • 2. Grease a loaf dish or pan very thoroughly, lightly flour as well (I used coconut flour)
  • 3. Beat eggs until smooth
  • 4. Add remaining liquid ingredients and mix
  • 5. Add dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Some people have problems with coconut flour clumping and claim they must sift it. I personally have not yet found this to be an issue and usually opt not to do this step.
  • 6. Bake. The original recipe called for 45 minutes. I found mine actually took almost a full hour to cook through the middle. Just start checking around 45 minutes every few minutes. Insert a toothpick and when it comes out done, you’re golden…

For the berry component keep it simple:

  • 1. Slice up strawberries into whatever size you like.
  • 2. Puree some of them for a sauce
  • 3. Wash the blackberries
  • 4. Assemble your shortcakes in whatever way suits your palette. The cake is quite dense so I chose thin slices.
  • 5. If you “do dairy” a little homemade whipped cream on this would be awesome.
  • ~ The end result was quite tasty and the perfect bed for beautiful fresh berries and a little puree for sauce. 
  • Servings: 1 large loaf
  • Prep and Cook time: 45-60 minutes at 350 degrees
