Paleo Coffee Cake – Divine!

PALEO_CAKE

Do you like cake for breakfast?  Man.  I used to LOVE cake.  Now I bake to SMELL cake – and I’m content with that.

No really. I am.  It’s so weird to me.

I asked God to take away the desire for things that made me sick – and He provides.

But, I do love making things that I know my kids and husband will love – AND that I know are actually a really good choice for them, vs. some processed gluten free (empty calorie-filled) junk!  (I actually make them this for a treat – not for breakfast…they think it’s a dessert.)

I present to you: cinnamon pecan coffee cake!

My kids were stunned that it is sugar, dairy and gluten-free!  It’s a paleo coffee cake from paleoonmain.blogspot.com and we loved it!

Here’s the low down on how to get it done for more than a few people – {you KNOW I double it}, so here’s my doubled version for a 9×13 dish.

CINNAMON PECAN COFFEE CAKE

1 can of coconut milk

4 eggs

1/2 cup raw honey

2 tsp pure vanilla

2 cups almond meal/flour

2 cups hazelnut flour

1 cup arrow-root powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

 

SWIRL

4 T. Cinnamon

1/2 C. coconut oil

6 T. Honey

 

TOPPING:

3/4-1 Cup Chopped Pecan Pieces

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Mix cake together, and pour into pan.  Mix swirl ingredients together and drop spoonfuls throughout cake – then swirl with knife – first up and back and then side to side to get desired look.  Lastly, top with pecans.

Bake 28-30 minutes and cool for 30 minutes before serving.

The old has gone, the new is here!”
