That is one scary thought, isn’t it?

Bread ranks very high on the list of comfort foods. It accompanies almost every meal in one form or other. People simply cannot imagine how they could ever do without and freak out at just the thought of having to give it up, even if it is temporary.

If only you knew how much your body would appreciate this change, getting a break and being able to at least somewhat control inflammation. If you just knew how much better you could feel without the overload of this chemical laden vacuum food. And with proper guidance, it isn’t scary at all and actually quite easy. Give your body the break it deserves.

Until then, let me help with a delicious coconut coffee cake. It satisfies the “need” for bread but doesn’t require any grain flour. The sugar content is minimal and the goodness of natural nutrient-dense ingredients qualifies it actually as healthy food. It goes really well with my daily cup of coffee, but like everything else please enjoy in moderation.

Coconut Coffee Cake Recipe


– 1 cup coconut flour
– 1/2 tsp sea salt
– 1 tsp ground cinnamon
– 8 large eggs
– 1 tsp baking soda
– 1/2 cup plain yogurt
– 5 tbsp coconut oil, melted
– 1/4 cup raw dark brown sugar
– 1 tbsp vanilla extract
– 2 tbsp coconut cream


– 1 1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
– 2 tsp ground cinnamon
– 1/4 cup raw dark brown sugar
– 4 tbsp molten coconut oil
– A dash of black pepper


– Preheat oven to 325◦F and adjust rack to middle position.
– Grease an 8×8 inch baking pan with coconut oil and set aside.
– Combine all ingredients for the topping in a bowl and blend until the ingredients bind together. Set aside.
– Place all the batter ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
– Pour batter into the greased pan.
– Drop a spoonful of topping mix over the batter.
– With a fork and a swirling motion, lightly work the topping into the top part of the batter.
– Bake for 40-45 minutes.
– Let cool for 20 minutes. The cake stays fresh for over two days, but is best soon after preparation.

Variations: Substitute butter for coconut oil and/or use pecan pieces for the topping.

Just a warning: The point of this cake is being gluten free. Flour cannot be used by many.

replace 1 egg: 2 tablespoon flour + 1/2 teaspoon oil + 1/2 teaspoon baking powder + 2 tablespoons liquid (milk, cream, buttermilk, diluted yogurt, or dairy free alternatives like coconut milk, soy milk, etc) beaten together until smooth. Arpita Saraiya :)

GUys, just to say: do not expect your cake to look like that "almost tiramisu" cake from the photo. It will be a decent coffee cake (aka cake for coffee), but nothing like the one on the photo above. I'll try to find you a photo of the cake I baked (Ok, simplified version, as I described below). Can be presented to guests for tea. :) Looks decent enough

I am not sure, it will work well in this recipe. There is only coconut flour in use... I tried to make the cake once with apple sauce instead of eggs (equal volume), it was not bad, but not as good as with eggs. Cake was more crumbly too. Still tasty.

Never use honey in bakingb- it's considered toxic when cooked

And, actually, there is a way to simplify it even more. I put a tablespoon of coconut oil on the bottom of the form, sprinkle it with brown sugar (like a table spoon), then sprinkle it with shredded coconut, + a bit of zest of lemon (+ optional: add a layer of apple slices or plums, + I am adding just a but more sugar on top of them to counterbalance tartness), pour batter on top, bake. Very simple.

Thushanie De Silva no, it is finely ground coconut = coconut flour. Desiccated coconut can be added for texture, but you need coconut flour for the recipe. Amazon has some. Any health/organic food store has some.

Thushanie De Silva there is no coffee in the recipe. It is cake to eat with coffee. Or tea. :)
