Paleo birthday cake


As I decided to follow both Paleo and Zone diets, well, still more zone, as I am not ready totally to with to Paleo, so gonna take it slowly. However, I definitely took off wheat from my diet, except my friday night when we have pizza nights 🙂 but I will try to change that as well. So, of course, I could not find better way to star new year as with Paelo birthday cake. It took sometime of research to find one, but the result was AMAZING. For me it was the best chocolate cake that I ever ate, I took it from Paleo Spirit :))))

So, here it comes 🙂

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place the medjool dates in a food processor and pulse until completely pureed (it might take some time and for me it is most tiring process as the dates are really sticky thing to deal with). Add applesauce (or banana or applesauce and banana) and continue to pulse until pureed and combined with the dates. Add the eggs, vanilla, coconut oil and coffee and mix on low-medium speed until well combined. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and slowly add to wet ingredients until you have a smooth batter. Grease a 8×8 glass pan with coconut oil, pour in the batter and smooth it with the back of a spatula. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.

I also made a chocolate frosting, however, most that I checked were calling for too much oil, so I just created on the spot, combining some of the recipes:

  • around one cup of 72% organic cacao chips
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

In a bowl over boiling water melt chocolate chips, add the rest of ingredients. When it is all mixed, pour it over the cake and let it sit. After this cake I am not worried anymore that baking will banish from my life as actually there are so much more sources than flour and that actually eating them makes you feel good 🙂

  1. Excellent recipe! I have to bake a dessert for a function and this will be perfect! Don’t you hate the pot luck where you are the only one bringing something healthy to eat, and you have to spend the whole night explaining why you can’t eat this and don’t want to eat that?….. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

    • Hi,

      well, I just found the recipe rather than created it and internet is full of great recipes. I also use zone diet recipes, they have great muffins, if you eat oats, then definitely you could use their dessert ideas as well.
      As regarding my explanation to the other, so I was quite picky eater even before, especially with food that I did not prepare and did not know the consistence of it. So, one way or another, I would end up eating what I brought or some other food that has no hidden components, like salads with no weird dressing :)))) So, I am used not to explain myself, just tell that I am very cautions about my food and usually I don’t’ like food that I did not make :)))) That is a bit snobby, but c’est la vie 🙂

  2. Happy Birthday to you! 🙂
