Let Them Eat CAKE

I rarely ever make desserts. Mostly because they just go to waste. I'm not that big on sweets, and with baking you have to bake a decent amount. I also try to stay of away from the crap that is gluten and sugar. Refined flour and sugar is terrible for your guts, and literally contributes to making you fat. Insert the gluten and sugar free cake. Sounds sketchy I know, but if you substitute the proper ingredients it's really not.

  1. 6 eggs
  2. 1 cup milk
  3. 3/4 cup honey (I used raw)
  4. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  5. 1 cup coco flour
  6. 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  7. 1/8 teaspoon salt

Bake at 350 until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

I didn't have any traditional frosting ingredients so I made a raw whipped cream topping. I just mixed a bunch of raw cream and raw honey with a hand mixer till it was stiff.
I'm not a great baker yet, but practice makes perfect. I actually much prefer cooking to baking.

On another note, I got up early to work out this morning! Even though Kait's stupid rabbit kept me up a lot hoppin' around. It felt really good and I've definitely had more engery today, especially considering the lack of sleep. Tomorrow I have a hot yoga class scheduled and tonight Kait and I are getting manicures and pedicures. I'm so stoked.
For today's challenge I'm supposed to talk about why I hope my future will be like. I did that enough with the whole where I'd like to be in ten years.


  1. I'm gonna have to try this out! I just made my own coconut flour; what is the texture of the store bought coconut flour- mealy, like corn meal? Or fine like wheat flour?

  2. Hi! I wouldn't say it's like wheat or corn meal, though it does have a sort of grain-y texture. It's probably a happy medium between wheat and corn meal. :)
