Best Ever Paleo Chocolate Cake!

Yum yum this cake is so good it doesn’t taste paleo! It makes a huge cake!

I did not try this frosting recipe.

For cake pops: mix cooked cake with frosting (I just used store bought cream cheese frosting – I did one can of frosting for about 3/4 of the cooked cake, did not use all the cake). I referenced THIS for how to refrigerate, how to dip etc.)



  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • cups brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups raw cacao powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup coffee or decaf coffee
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract



    • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
    • Grease three 8-inch cake pans and line the bottom with parchment paper. I prefer to grease my pans with ghee or organic palm shortening as coconut oil can leave a slight coconut taste. Set these aside.
    • Add all of the dry ingredients to a very large mixing bowl and whisk together.
    • Add all of the wet ingredients to a separate medium mixing bowl and whisk together. Then, pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk together for 1-2 minutes to create your cake batter.
    • Evenly divide the batter between the three baking pans and cook for 28-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
    • Once the cake has completely cooled, assemble the cake by adding the chocolate buttercream frosting between each layer and frosting the outside.


  • My baking time of 28-30 minutes is based on a standard oven. I’d recommend checking the cakes earlier, at 23-24 minutes if your oven tends to cook fast or if you’re using a convection oven.
  • You can also use two 9-inch cake pans for a two-layer cake (the layers will be thicker). Bake them for approximately 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Remember to make sure your cake is 100% cool before frosting. Even the slightest amount of internal heat in the layers will cause the frosting to melt.
  • This is the brand of espresso powder that I use.
  • For substitutions and storing, make sure to read the tips in the post above.
