Celebration almond coconut cake

humble wholefoods paleo almond cake christmas cake

The ultimate celebration cake for birthdays / afternoon teas / christmas + sweet cravings. I love making this cake when people are coming around because it takes me less than 10 minutes to make the batter, it then takes a quick 20-25 minutes to bake & less than 5 minutes to ice. It is literally my quickest celebration cake recipe :) The almond meal gives the cake a light / crumbly texture whilst the coconut oil keeps the cake extremely moist & succulent. It is a people please for the ages - just you wait a see ;) 

 

With christmas just around the corner, I thought it would be perfect to share this recipe with you so you can still enjoy your holidays & turn up to that christmas party or family BBQ prepared with ease.
