Moist and Marvelous Coconut Flour Pound Cake

Pound cake is a favorite for special events or enjoying at home with a cup of tea. It is a simply flavored canvas for dessert toppings such as chocolate sauce or whipped cream, but the delicious moist texture also makes it a perfect sweet bite on its own. Coconut flour pound cake has a light coconut taste that blends well with the vanilla and lemon flavorings in this recipe.

You may notice right away that our recipe calls for a large amount of eggs, that’s because baking with coconut flour requires added liquid, usually in the form of eggs, to balance out the extra dryness of this type of flour. Also note, our cake needs 24 hours to set and should be made a day ahead.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1/8 cup Coco Treasure Organic Coconut Oil
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 10 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • Combine the salt, baking powder and coconut flour in a small bowl. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Beat just until all ingredients are well incorporated.

  • Bake for 30-45 minutes. When the top becomes lightly golden, cover with aluminum foil. Continue baking for another 45 minutes. A pick inserted into the center of the cake should come out clean when the cake is completely cooked.
  • Cool to room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap, and continue cooling overnight. Invert the pan over a serving plate to slide the cake out. Slice and serve.
