  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two 8-inch round cake pan with parchment paper or oil and flour pan well; set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 7 – 10 minutes. Add in eggs, one at a time, and beat until fully blended. Add milk and extracts and mix until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour, Organic Coconut Flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until creamy.

  5. Stack the cakes on top of each other with a generous layer of frosting between. Cover the top and edges with remaining frosting.

    I have been experimenting with this recipe as a layer cake as well. I find that if you freeze the layers first, it helps with layering them, otherwise the top layer can crack and fall into a tasty mess as this is a very moist cake. I still love it as a 9×13 cake but it makes lovely layers as well.
    If you have not tried this recipe without frosting you should as it is fabulous by itself.

    We LOVE this cake either plain, with fruit, or with frosting in layers – that later way I use a pureed dried fruit like apricots mixed with unsweetened coconut for a filling so that frosting is only on top and sides and if you make a buttercream frosting 1/4 to 1/3 Cup of butter with powered sugar is plenty which keeps the calories and the “sugar” for diabetics down. My husband is diabetic, but this cake made with Newsweet sugar substitute (google it – all natural) does not affect his sugar because there is no grain.

    Does this recipe yield one 8-inch round or a layer cake? Step 1 says to line a 8-inch round cake pan (singular). Step 4 says divide the batter between the prepared pans (plural).

    Can you tell me please what the adjustments are to make this without the coconut flour (I’m allergic). How much of an increase in almond flour? Would maybe an egg be reduced>?

    Thank you! I can’t wait to try it!

      We have not tested this recipe without the use of Coconut Flour and do not have information regarding the appropriate measures to execute this change. If you do eliminate the coconut flour in this recipe, you will need to increase the amount of Almond Meal/Flour, adjust the milk content and reduce the amount of eggs.

    Has anyone tried substituting anything in for the 1 cup of sugar? Such as applesauce, banana or honey maybe…. Just trying to rid the sugar or at least cut back on it. Thanks!

    We sub in Splenda for sugar (1:1; use the big bag you can find in the baking aisle) and heavy cream for the milk to make this truly low-carb. Goes great with homemade whipped cream (made using Splenda and a bit of vanilla extract). Beware, though! Low carb, yes, low cal, no.

    This cake is truly delicious! I was amazed that it had no flour in it, yet it was moist, well structured, flavorful and tender. Very easy to make and will probably be my new traditional Easter cake (and none of us eat GF!) Great with the buttercream icing on this site. Super easy as well. Enjoy!
