This coffee cake is so delicious! Both the paleo and non paleo eaters in our house love this one, and the cake rarely lasts 24 hours! This is a recipe I like to make a head and take camping for breakfast or up to the family cabin. Serve with some eggs and bacon or sausage (paleo of course), and this cake makes a quick breakfast or brunch.The recipe calls for walnuts, but I use pecans…and usually a bit more than the recipe calls for. This coffee cake is a hit as a dessert too.

For the Cake:
    • ¾ cup coconut flour, sifted or almond flour
    • ¾ cup arrowroot flour or tapioca flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 4 eggs
    • ¼ cup pure maple syrup ( Use up to 2/3 cup pure maple syrup for a sweeter cake)
    • ½ cup full-fat canned coconut milk
    • ¼ cup coconut oil, ghee or unsalted grass-fed butter, melted
For the Walnut Topping:
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped (or what ever nuts you prefer, I like to use pecans)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, ghee or unsalted grass-fed butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


Prepare the walnut topping:
    1. Combine all of the ingredients for the walnut topping in a small bowl. Stir well to combine and set aside.
Prepare the cake:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly butter or oil a 8″ x 8″ baking dish.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the coconut flour, arrowroot flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, maple syrup, coconut milk, and butter. Pour this wet mixture into the bowl with the flour mixture and mix until smooth. Note: The batter will be thick.
  4. Pour half of the cake batter into the prepared baking dish and spread evenly with a rubber spatula. Spread half of the walnut topping over the batter. Repeat for the remaining cake batter and walnut topping.
  5. Bake on the center rack for 28 to 35 minutes or until cake tests clean when poked in the center (Note: mine took 32 minutes).
  6. Allow cake to sit 20 minutes before cutting large chunks and serving
