  • Preheat oven to 350 °F
  • Cut parchment paper to fit bottom of a greased 9-inch round cake pan or use a silicone non-stick pan.
  • In large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt.
  • Add the almond milk, coconut oil, butter, and vanilla to the dry mix and beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for about 2 minutes, scraping bowl as needed.
  • Add the eggs and continue to beat an additional 2 minutes.
  • Spread batter into prepared cake pan.
  • Bake in 350 °F oven for about 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and cake springs back when lightly touched.
  • Cool cake for 10 minute then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
  • For frosting: Microwave chocolate and butter in microwaveable bowl on HIGH for 1 minute or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and incorporated into butter. Add sugar and enough almond milk to reach desired consistency.
  • Spread frosting evenly over the top of the cake.


To reduce total carbs, sweetener in cake could be reduced to ½ cup and omit frosting
