Fried Apple Coffee Cake

I like to make a special breakfast on one of the weekend days, but I am really working hard to steer away from added sweeteners, even in the Paleo form (honey, maple syrup, date, ect). This one turned out great... you get a little sweetness from the apples, but other than that there is nothing.

Fried Apple Coffee Cake
1 1/2 C Coconut Oil Fried Apples*
1/2 C Coconut Milk (Canned)
6 Eggs
1 Tsp Vanilla
1/4 C Coconut Flour
1 C Almond Flour
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Baking Powder

Preheat oven to 350. In the bottom of a casserole dish, spread fried apples.
 In a large bowl combine coconut milk, eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Stir dry ingredients into wet and stir till there are no more dry parts. Pour batter over fried apples.

 Place in preheated oven and bake for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean (may have to adjust depending on the size dish you use).
If anyone is still looking for a Christmas/Birthday gift for me (Mom? Dad? Naomi?), I am now in need of a new measuring cup set. ;-)

*Coconut Oil Fried Apples
These are so simple to make. Just peel and slice apples. Heat a couple Tbsp of coconut oil on the stove top and throw in the apples with a sprinkle of cinnamon.  Allow the apples to cook till soft. For recipe purposes, the apples generally cook down by about 1/3-1/2, so I would start out with about 3C of sliced apples for this recipe. Enjoy!


  1. Am I missing the coffee element? it looks great anyway,

  2. Not coffee in the cake, but a breakfast cake to have with coffee. Like a traditional Coffee Cake, but without the flour and sugar.

  3. Hi, made a version of this for dessert yesterday. Very tart apples, so I did put one tablespoon of honey in the batter. Didn't have any cinnamon but it still tasted very nice - mine looked more like a slice - the batter oozed through the apples & I served it upside down, apples on top! (Had some cold today buttered - yum!)
