Coconut flour yellow cake - great for birthday cakes! Gluten and grain free.

div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;"My husband's birthday was several weeks ago and one dessert item he's had a hankering for is good old fashion yellow birthday cake. The only problem is our son can't have wheat, so that nixes the majority of recipes out there. I know that I could have used a gluten-free flour to make a close substitute, but to be honest I'm not a huge fan of the GF flours on the market. They are often filled with ingredients that I'd prefer to avoid in our diet. So, instead I made a very delicious version using coconut flour.br /br /I've messed with this recipe over the last year on and off again, playing around with different ingredients. This time because I wanted to provide something more similar to a traditional birthday cake I went with more traditional ingredients, like organic white sugar instead of honey and butter instead of coconut oil.

You can get away with a different variety of ingredients with chocolate cake, because the chocolate masks some of the flavors, but with a white cake a flavor like honey or coconut oil will be much more pronounced.br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"/divbr /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-4Yc3TZiw34k/T2AF3S9UfvI/AAAAAAAACeU/fS9M38bfCkY/s1600/White+coconut+flour+cake+3b.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-4Yc3TZiw34k/T2AF3S9UfvI/AAAAAAAACeU/fS9M38bfCkY/s1600/White+coconut+flour+cake+3b.jpg" //a/divbr //diva href="http://artistta.blogspot.com/2012/03/coconut-flour-yellow-cake-great-for.html#more"Read more »/a
