Each Cake Layer:



  • Mix together almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt in small bowl. Set aside.
  • Melt coconut oil in small round microwavable cup that will be used to bake cake. You can use a ramkin or 2-cup Pyrex storage container.
  • With fork, stir almond milk, egg, sweetener and vanilla extract into melted coconut oil.
  • Beat dry ingredients into liquid ingredients with fork until well combined.
  • Microwave from 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until cake is no longer wet. It took 2 minutes to bake in my 900 watt microwave.
  • Remove cake layer from pan and cool on rack.
  • Repeat steps for each cake layer.
  • Frost with icing if desired.



For buttercream frosting, I use the following:
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sweetener
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • coconut milk or almond milk to desired consistency (about 1 tablespoon)
Chocolate Frosting can be used.
Each cake layer is two servings. So, four servings all together.
