Want to celebrate your child's (or other loved ones) birthday without having a cake filled with refined sugar and bad grains? Try out this delicious grain free birthday cake recipe!
Serves: 4 round 9x1.5 inch cakes
  • 10 eggs, whisked
  • 1⅓ cup unsweetened organic applesauce
  • ¼ tsp strawberry liquid stevia
  • ⅔ cup raw honey
  • 2 Tbs vanilla extract
  • 1⅓ cup coconut flour, sifted
  • 1⅓ cup tapioca flour
  • 1½ cup almond flour
  • ½ tsp real salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp aluminum free baking powder
  • ⅔ cup melted coconut oil (where to buy)
  1. Mix using a stand mixer or hand mixer
  2. Pour equal parts into 4 round 9 x 1.5 inch cake pans that have been greased.*
  3. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 - 18 minutes, watching carefully the last few minutes to avoid over browning.
  4. Let cool for five minutes and then transfer out of the pans onto a wire rack to cool completely*You could easily half this recipe. As you can tell from my photos my cake was pretty tall and we had more than enough to go around for the 12 of us there. If you half the recipe, just pour equal amounts of the batter into two cake pans instead of four.I frosted my cake using a variation of a coconut buttercream frosting recipe. Not sure I'd use it again, but it worked. Make sure to spread a very thin layer of frosting between the two layers to keep it from slipping. The real secret to making this cake yummy is to top it off with a simple strawberry compote. Delicious!
