I have been trying to turn “normal” recipes into Paleo and/or GAPS friendly recipes. Red Wine cake is a typical German cake that my mom used to make all the time and I did as well when I was still eating grains. Here is my Paleo/GAPSish version
what you need:
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter or coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup red wine
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup ground hazelnuts
- 1.5 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder or baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
what you do:
Mix all ingredients in an Omniblend or other high powered blender or with an electric mixer. Grease a loaf pan, pour batter in, and bake in 350 degree pre-heated oven for 30 to 40 minutes.
It didn’t taste like the “real” red wine cake I used to make, but it had a nice flavor. A little frosting of some sort would make it even better.
