After years of trying to find a nut-free Paleo cake that doesn't taste like a coconut, here it is! And it's so awesome.
I scored with this Paleo nut-free 9" cake pan double-layer chocolate cake and vanilla frosting for my son's fourth birthday.
I was going to try a different receipt that called for 8" cake pans but I didn't have any cake pans (because, um, I don't really cook) and the stores don't carry 8" and it was too late to order from Amazon. Huh. So I started researching how to convert a 8" cake pan recipe into a 9" cake pan recipe and apparently you need an advanced math degree and the physical precision to add 33% of an egg to your batter.
Not going to happen.
So I found 9" cake pans–available at all stores–and this Paleo 9" chocolate cake recipe.
The cake was amazing.
It actually tasted like cake.
Chocolate cake. Real chocolate cake. One that even the non-Paleo people at the table were drooling over.
*Note: When you had a choice of oils, I used ghee.
I tried to make the frosting from the same recipe page too, but I don't know if I had the wrong kind of palm shortening or just no patience to make it "come back together" and it ended up looking like curdled ick so I found and used this frosting recipe I found instead.
THIS IS THE BEST FROSTING I HAVE EVER TRIED.
I put that in all caps, I know. It's worth it.
It whips, folks. Like real frosting. Frosting that even the non-Paleo people at the table were drooling over.
It also created an actual cake-like look, unlike other Paleo frosting I have tried which looks like a helmet.
