Vegan Coconut Cake

1

Soft, sweet cake that is full of coconut flavor! This vegan coconut cake is healthy, gluten free and naturally sweetened. A single layer cake that’s super easy, but a total crowd pleaser.

8
1 1/2 c almond flour
1 1/2 c coconut flour
1 c date paste - I use about 16 medjool dates blended with 1 c hot water, then measure out 1 c paste
1 c unsweetened applesauce
1/2 tsp coconut extract
3 c almond milk
1/2 shredded, unsweetened toasted coconut
Optional toppings: coconut whipped cream, Date Lady coconut date caramel, more shredded, toasted coconut - I used a drizzle of coconut milk and shredded toasted coconut!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the almond and coconut flour and stir to combine. Add the date paste, applesauce, coconut extract, and 2 cups of almond milk and stir to combine. Once that is all incorporated, add the final cup of almond milk - I just do this in phases since 3 cups is a lot to stir together all at one time. Fold in the toasted coconut, and mix until everything is combined. Bake the cake for 1 hour. Allow the cake to cool for AT LEAST 1 hour in the pan, and even after that it may be fragile when you turn it out! It's delicate but so, so soft in texture.
