GF Coconut-Banana Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Oh hello. No I didn't abandon this blog. I've been prepping for homeschooling in the fall, dealing with preggo nausea, and generally enjoying summer. To make up for my absence, here's my recipe for GF coconut-banana cake with chocolate frosting. Enjoy!


1/4 C + 2 Tbsp (or 6 Tbsp) coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 C palm shortening
1/4 C maple syrup
1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
3 eggs
1 ripe banana

1. Cream maple syrup & shortening. Add eggs & vanilla.
2. Add banana either mashed or cut into thin slices. Blend well. (I use a stand mixer and it whips up beautifully.)
3. In a separate bowl, mix coconut flour, soda & salt.
4. Add dry ingredients into mixing bowl.
5. Pour into greased cake pan.
6. Bake at 375*F for roughly 30 minutes (it's done when it's browned and firm to the touch).
7. Cool completely before frosting.


1/4 C + 2 Tbsp (or 6tbsp) palm shortening
3 Tbsp maple syrup (more if you like it sweeter)
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract

1. Blend shortening & syrup. Add vanilla.
2. Add cocoa powder until smooth.
3. Once cake is cool, spread frosting evening on top & sides.

  1. Is the cake supposed to rise? And when you say "whipped", what do you mean?
