We have two Birthdays back to back in October. We have boys who are 2 years and 3 days apart! (plus one in the middle who doesn’t have his Birthday until December!) Boy 3 turned 8 this month (so, for a couple of months, we have two 8 year olds!). For his Birthday, he asked for an orange cake with chocolate frosting. So what does a good Mommy do? I got to work and made his wish come true! :) I found the recipe that I started with at Nourishing Days, and then I changed it a bit. This cake is made with coconut flour and honey. I love butter, but if you need a cake without dairy, you can sub coconut oil for the butter (like Shannon does in the original recipe).

Coconut Flour Chocolate Orange Cake


  • 12 eggs
  • 1/2 c butter, coconut oil or ghee (plus extra for greasing the pan)
  • 1/2 c coconut milk
  • 3/4 c raw honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 c coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • juice of 1 medium orange
  • For the frosting:
  • 5 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 1/4 c coconut milk
  • 3/4 c honey
  • 1/2 TB vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9—13 pan with coconut oil, butter or ghee. Combine all of the ingredients in a Kitchen Aid mixer. Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  2. Frosting Instructions:
  3. Melt the chocolate and the butter in a saucepan. Add in the other ingredients, combine with a wire whisk. Set aside and let thicken. Frost the cake when it has cooled down.
