Gluten-Free Maple Chocolate Chip Cake

I am trying something completely against my baking, sugar, and wheat flour loving self...I am testing out a gluten free diet! But have no fear - I will still provide you with recipes full of gluten, with little gluten-free experiments like this thrown into the mix :)

My first experiment is a gluten-free cake made with coconut flour. So far I don't like it as much as regular flour but the consistency is great and the flavor is not bad. It just has a simple hint of coconut.

Here's a recipe for a completely gluten-free maple chocolate chip cake!

Preheat oven to 350


  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 12 eggs (yes, 12)
  • 1 cup brown sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 cup sifted Coconut Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup pecans, finely chopped or walnuts


  • Blend together butter, coconut milk, eggs, sugar, salt and maple syrup. 
  • Combine coconut flour with baking powder and whisk into batter until there are no lumps. 
  • Pour batter into a greased 11x7x2 inch or 9x9x2 inch pan. 
  • Fold nuts into batter. 
  • Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted into centre comes out clean.

Let me know what you think!
