It seems that everybody in my family (except for me) was born in the summer. And all within a week of each other. Needless to say, I’m pretty poor this time of the year 😦 And lacking in the creative-presents department.
Mothers Day and Fathers Day always falling not too far from both of my parents birthdays do not help either.
This past week, we’ve celebrated 2 birthdays. Well, technically. My brother’s birthday is being celebrated over a 5-day time period this year. Lucky kid.
So, with all the birthdays and what not, I figured it would be perfect timing to post a chocolate cake recipe! And the awesome part? Each person gets their own mini layered cake! No fighting over the biggest/smallest piece! And I don’t know, layered cakes just seem more fancy to me. Plus, it allows for more icing!
Paleo Mini-Layered Chocolate Cake
2/3 cup water
2 tbsp honey
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix wet ingredients and dry ingredients separately. Pour dry into wet and combine. Spread into 6 greased ramekins and bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. LET COOL (will seem undone once they first come out of the oven) FOR 10 MINUTES. Spread icing (I used avocado mousse for mine) and stack with how many layers you want. Makes 2 3-layered cakes or 3 2-layered cakes evenly.
