Cake for Breakfast--Coconut Coffee Cake

Cake for Breakfast--Coconut Coffee Cake

Linking up here for some delicious treats!

Something happens on the weekends we're home when Saturday morning breakfast time rolls around: no matter what I was originally planning for breakfast, a craving for something special often pushes it out of the way. This past weekend was no exception. I didn't know what I wanted to eat, but I knew that I wanted it fresh from the oven. Not wanting to throw all previous healthy choices out of the window by making something terrible for you, I turned to one of my top 3 favorite cookbooks, The Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook, and was immediately drawn to the sound of the French Toast in a Bowl recipe. It sounded delicious, but, unfortunately, I didn't have a lot of those ingredients on hand (remember, at this point, I was making a meal based on a craving rather than the originally planned meal for which I had grocery shopped earlier in the week). So, instead, I used that recipe as a bit of a launching pad and made something entirely different. It was amazing, and I'm here today to share it with you.

Moist and Delicious Coconut Coffee Cake

You'll need:

1/2 c. Truvia

4 eggs

4 tsp. melted butter

1-2 tsp. vanilla

1 scant c. water

3/4 c. almond flour

1/4 c. coconut flour

1/2 c. flax meal

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 c. shredded, unsweetened coconut

What you do:

Pre-heat oven to 375F. Mix Truvia through water together. Add in the rest of the ingredients until well-incorporated. Pour into greased pie plate or 9x9. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

We topped ours with raspberry sauce (2 1/2 c. frozen raspberries, 1 c. water, sweetener to taste brought to a boil), but I thought up some other variations that I think would be delicious:

  • apple cinnamon
  • pumpkin spice
  • lemon-blueberry

Yum!! I hope you enjoy!!
