As a German I like cake. As my father’s daughter (he was a pastry chef and baker) I really like cake. And as my grandmother’s granddaughter I know of my German duty to have breakfast at 7:30am, lunch at noon, coffee and cake at 3pm, and dinner at 7pm.
Okay, it’s not quite like that at my house, but I do love the German tradition of having cake as an afternoon snack, rather than in combination with dinner, the way it is done here in the States. But, I’ll leave it up to you when and how you prefer to indulge in this treat. Just please do remember, this is a treat… not to be consumed on a daily basis. 😉 The paleo police is watching!
1/2 cup honey
1 cup almond flour
2 tbsp coconut flour
5 tbsp coconut coconut oil (melted)
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 340F (or 170C).
Combine eggs and honey in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer until well combined and fluffy.
In a separate bowl mix almond flour, coconut flour, and baking powder, add to wet ingredients and mix well. Now add the melted coconut oil and mix again.
Peel and take out cores of two apples, cut them into small, thin slices, and mix them into your batter.
Now pour the batter into the baking pan (I used a 9” springform) and bake for 30 minutes, cover with aluminum foil and bake for another 10 minutes. Done!
Let it cool for a while. We tried it when it was still slightly warm. Lots of caveman-ish moaning and grunting going on for sure! 🙂 Enjoy!!
You can double up this recipe, and add cinnamon and raisins. After baking for 45 minutes, cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350F for another 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
