A Twist on a Classic Favorite

Almond Flour & Coconut Flour: A Nutritious Duo

The foundation of our Grain-Free Red Velvet Cake is a blend of almond and coconut flours. Almond flour, known for its moist, tender texture and nutty undertones, is a fantastic gluten-free alternative that’s rich in nutrients. Coconut flour complements it with a light, airy texture and a hint of sweetness. Together, they create a cake that’s not just delicious but also nutritionally richer and more satisfying.

Rich Cocoa and Vibrant Red: A Visual and Flavorful Feast

This cake doesn’t just taste incredible – it’s a feast for the eyes too. The deep red color, achieved with food coloring, contrasts beautifully with the creamy white of the cream cheese frosting. Unsweetened cocoa powder adds a depth of chocolate flavor, making each bite a delightful blend of tangy, sweet, and chocolaty notes.

Cream Cheese Frosting: The Perfect Finishing Touch

What’s a Red Velvet Cake without its signature cream cheese frosting? Our frosting is silky, smooth, and perfectly sweetened, enveloping the cake in a luscious layer that complements its rich texture. It’s the finishing touch that elevates this cake from delicious to unforgettable.

  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar (or a suitable sugar substitute)
  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat Oven and Prepare Pans: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans and line the bottoms with parchment paper.
  2. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, mixing until just combined. Avoid overmixing.
  5. Bake: Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool Cakes: Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Make Frosting: For the frosting, beat together the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla, and beat until creamy and spreadable.
  8. Assemble and Frost Cake: Once the cakes are completely cool, spread frosting on the top of one cake layer, place the other cake layer on top, and frost the top and sides of the cake.
