THM Special Occasion Chocolate Cake

I have been wanting to make this cake for months, but have been too lazy. It’s much easier to just grab an Atkins bar or make a muffin in a mug. This time I wanted to make something the whole family could enjoy, so no Atkins bar or MIM.

After completing my 2nd Fuel Cycle I decided it was time to make a Special Occasion kind of cake Winking smile. It was worth my time and all 10 eggs, yes 10 eggs.

Trim Healthy Mama Cake

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup coconut flour (store bought)
  • 1/2 cup ground golden flax
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2tsp baking powder
  • 2tsp baking soda
  • 3-4TBL Truvia and 1/4 tsp Nunaturals or your own sweetener
  • 10 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cans of full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla (the book says ‘generous dash’)

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. I used a whisk to get any lumps out. You can rub ingredient between the palms of your hands but the whisk worked fine for me.

In a blender add all the wet ingredients, eggs, coconut oil, coconut milk, and vanilla. Blend well.

Combine ingredients in bowl and let stand for 5 minutes. While waiting grease pans with coconut oil.

Divide mixture in two 8 inch round pans and bake @ 350 for 1 hour. I checked my cake after 50 minutes and it was done.

Let cakes cool before trying to remove from cake pans.

Icing for Cake ingredients:

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 2 omega-3 eggs
  • 1TBL Pure Vanilla
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • Sweeten to taste. If using Nunaturals 1/8-1/4 tsp. depending on how sweet you want it. I used 1/8.
  • 3/4 cup virgin coconut oil (use the best you can afford to get the most nutrients possible)

Put all ingredients in a blender, blend, put in a container and chill in the refrigerator.

It’s suppose to thicken as hard as butter but mine didn’t. The next day it was still soft, not super soft but spreadable. I liked that it didn’t get really hard though.

This frosting taste so good that I’ve been known to eat a few teaspoons straight from the jar. Yum and good for you too!

The cake was hubby and children approved!!! Some liked the frosting and others didn’t so I decided to keep it as two cakes instead of layering it.

  1. That cake looks yummy! I am going to have to try it.

    Maybe you can make a batch of icing, freeze it in tablespoon lumps and eat it like candy here and there.

  3. That looks delicious, and our chickens are finally laying eggs. I'll have to remember to search for all of the coconut ingredients.

    1. Ooops, so sorry I didn't answer. Hmmm, because of the coconut oil is should harden. There could be two reasons as to why it didn't harden. One could be the coconut oil. It needs to be the kind that hardens. There is fractionated coconut oil that doesn't get hard.

      Another reason could be the coconut milk. It has to be coconut milk from the can not the cartons.

      Again, I'm so sorry and I apologize. I know you are way beyond needing an answer but maybe it will help someone else out.

  8. How do the eggs in the frosting get cooked? I can't eat raw eggs right now, but I'm making this cake for my birthday today. Thanks!

    1. Happy Birthday!!!

      I'm sorry, you might need to look for a different frosting or try it without the eggs. I know if you google you can find how to make a gelatin egg, that might work.
