  1. All ingredients should be organic, but do what you can.
  2. 1/2 cup coconut flour
  3. 1/2 cup cocoa powder (AIP - Carob powder)
  4. 1/2 tsp baking soda
  5. 4 eggs ( AIP - 2 small bananas) - ( you could use Chia eggs if you can digest Chia)
  6. 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil (or butter for LCHF)
  7. 1/2 cup of honey or maple syrup. (AIP - I found coconut sugar to work best for this recipe)
  8. 1/3 cup of coconut milk or cream (AIP - I used 2/3)
  9. pinch of vanilla powder and or cinnamon
  10. Icing
  11. 1/2 cup of cocoa powder (AIP - carob powder & Vanilla Powder)
  12. 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
  13. honey or maple syrup to taste (AIP sweeter of choice)
  1. Throw it all in a mixing bowl and mix until light and fluffy.
  2. Pour into a silicone cake dish (I like to use a loaf tin shape)
  3. Pop in the oven at 150 degrees for 30-40 mins.
  4. for the icing - mix well until thick and creamy texture. Cover a thick layer over the cake and let it set in the fridge.
  1. Depending on your oven I like to get the cake to rise at a bit higher than 150 degrees and then turn it down after 10 mins to slowly cook through to make it light and fluffy.
  2. This recipe is great for cup cakes too. (The cooking time may vary or be if cooking cup cakes.)
  3. By placing this cake in the freezer you can take this on picnics or birthday parties as it will stay firm until thawed.
  4. All ovens are different and paleo cooking times can vary depending on which type of paleo flour you are using. Please keep a close eye on you cake! when it is firm to touch and when a knife is inserted comes out clean, it is normal ready!
  5. Best eaten at room temperature and decorated with banana, passion fruit or strawberries.

    Hi. Just a note that some of the ingredients are not AIP. Cocoa powder and eggs are not allowed. We are currently following AIP protocol with our little boy.

      Hi Johan,

      Thank you for your comment. You are completely right if you are just starting out on an AIP protocol then eggs and cocoa powder are a big no-no. However, after following an AIP protocol, you can slowly introduce these back into your diet. Eggs being a huge allergen, then this cake would be no good. I am sorry this title was misleading for you. You could swap the cocoa powder for carob powder and make chia eggs if your little boy can tolerate chia seeds, or banana can replace eggs. If you give this ago, please provide us with an update. In the meanwhile, I will make sure I reword this recipe. Thank you, and I hope your little boy’s health is improving.

    You should specify whether it is 150 degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius. We are in the states. The cake has been cooking on 200 for 40 minutes and it’s like kidding. It’s a bit annoying and possibly will turn out to be a waste of a lot of expensive ingredients.

      So sorry and thanks for the feedback. We’re all metric here in Australia so it didn’t even cross our minds. We’ll bear that in mind for the future.
