Bonjour Sweet Tooth,
When I get bored or frustrated for no reasons, I just get my cooking on… That day I got bored and I came up with the idea of a simple cake, just to have something sweet to snack on … I planned on making a “Barre Bretonne” which is a simple cake made with only Flour + Butter + Sugar + Eggs.
As I went thru my fridge and found some new ingredients, the recipe changed a bit and became a little more creative. I replaced flour for coconut flour (GlutenFree) and added some lime zest , coconut flakes and vanilla in the mix … Watch !
Eggs – 4 / Coconut Flour – 2 cups / Sugar – 2 cups / Butter – 2 sticks / Baking Powder – 1 spoon / Lime – 1/2 juice + zest / Vanilla extract – 4 drops / Coconut Flakes – 1 handfull / Coconut oil – cover the pan.
Prep. Time : 10-15 mns / Cooking time : 35mns at 360*
1/ Mix Coconut Flour and Sugar together in a big bowl. Add melted butter and eggs. Mix until perfectly smooth.
2/ Add the Vanilla, Coconut Flakes and Lime. Mix well.
3/ Spray the cake pan with coconut oil (any form of coconut oil). Pour mixture in the pan.
4/ Put in the oven at 360* for about 25-35 mns.
5/ Let it cool down a few minutes and enjoy.
I went Tropical Storm on this cake since that’s what I had that night but you also could have gone any other direction like Cinnamon and brown sugar instead of the originals or even grounded mint and lime for a Mojito cake … Plenty of options, don’t be shy !
