Orange Walnut Paleo Cake with Cardamom Cream

Orange Walnut Paleo Cake with Cardamom Cream

This is another version of grain-free, dairy-free Paleo cake. I tend to use a lot of exotic spices in my recipes, and cardamom is one of my favorite ones. I feel like it made plain old orange flavor more complex and interesting. if you really love cardamom try adding a teaspoon to the cake mixture too.

I really like this cake for breakfast or a quick snack, it makes a decent dessert too!

A deliciously spiced paleo cake perfect for dessert or breakfast! In this recipe the carbs are pretty high, but a good dose of healthy fat balances it nicely!

  • 1 cup canned coconut cream

  4. Add coconut oil and cream to the mix.

  6. (You can also put eggs, coconut oil and coconut cream in the blender and mix until frothy, then add to the dry ingredients)
  7. Mix ingredients thoroughly until well combined.
  8. Prepare a 9" baking pan by coating the interior lightly with coconut oil.
  9. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of the pan and place it on top of the coconut oil.

  13. When the cake is ready to serve, spread the cream to your taste on individual slices.

    This ended up way too dry and crumbly. Useless. In our opinion way too much coconut flour. Very disappointed.

      Hello there, coconut flour can be VERY absorbant, especially depending on which brand you use. You might have to adjust the amount of liquid you use depending on the flour. A good rule of thumb is to make sure your batter is not too dry.
