Strawberry Cake

First guest posted on Empowered Sustenance.

I love surprising guests with something that tastes great, yet is made without grains and white sugar. Recently, I had another chance to pull off a fun culinary confection when it was my daughter’s 10th birthday. I let her have her choice of cakes to celebrate, and she chose a strawberry cake with strawberry frosting. So with a little inspiration, I developed this Grain Free GAPS Strawberry Cake.

This recipe is for one 9 inch round cake. The recipe can either be doubled, for a two-layer taller cake, or carefully serrated in half for two layers of cake from one pan. When cooled completely, frost with a double batch of my Strawberry Buttercream Frosting (GAPS friendly, refined sugar free)

Enjoy!

  • Total Time: 55
  • Category: Dessert

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, diced
  • 5 tablespoons chilled butter, grated
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup homemade whole-milk yogurt (24 hour culture for GAPS)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9 inch cake pan with parchment paper and coat the sides with butter or coconut oil.
  2. Put the honey and eggs in the bowl of a standing mixer. Using the whisk attachment, mix on medium-high (setting 6 on my Kitchen-aid mixer) for 5+ minutes, until pale yellow and frothy.
  3. Add the grated butter and mix for another minute.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the coconut flour, salt, & baking soda together, then add to the honey & eggs mixture. Mix for about 1 minute.
  5. Gently mix in diced strawberries, yogurt and vanilla extract.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting with Strawberry Buttercream Frosting.
