For cake batter

  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup yogurt (nut milk for Paleo)
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For ginger swirl

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons ginger powder
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons butter or coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Butter a 9″x13″ Pyrex baking dish.
  3. Prepare cake batter by mixing all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the eggs, yogurt, honey, and vanilla, blending them into the batter. I use a hand mixer for this stage.
  4. In a separate small bowl, prepare the ginger mixture. I use a small Pyrex bowl and warm it lightly in a toaster oven just enough to combine all ingredients with ease.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared Pyrex dish.
  6. Drizzle the ginger swirl mixture you prepared on top. You can get creative, forming lines, swirls or any pattern you choose.
  7. Bake at 350 F until golden brown and top of cake bounces to the touch. I start checking the loaves after 28 minutes and add time as needed. Usually, in my oven they are done in 28-32 minutes.
