Yesterday we celebrated a friend’s birthday with a Chocolate Strawberry Cake. This cake is gluten, dairy and sugar free. And it’s yummy with a moist and gooey middle! Just remember to watch the oven closely as the cake bakes fast.

  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 eggs
  • strawberries or other berries

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 175 degrees.
  2. Pulse the dates, almond flour and coconut flakes in a food processor until coarsely chopped.
  3. Add the other dry ingredients and pulse until blended.
  4. Melt the coconut oil gently in a small pan over low heat and add it to the mixture.
  5. Add eggs and pulse until mixture sticks together.
  6. Pour the mixture into a cake pan greased with coconut oil and coconut flakes.
