Mealthy Tip

Frost cake using your favorite homemade frosting recipe.

Replace the coconut butter with 2 tablespoons coconut oil, butter, or applesauce, if desired.

You can omit the chocolate chips... but why?

My cake came out super moist as well. That is usually hard for me to do with gluten free baked goods. Delicious.

My cake came out super moist, not dense like some other pressure cooker cakes that I've tried. I don't cook with almond flour often because it can be cost prohibitive, but it's a must for this recipe. I also added a full cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Very good!

Instead of omitting chocolate chips, I used sugar free dark chocolate morsels. This was the first cake I have ever made using my pressure cooker and you've made a believer out of me! I also chose not to add any frosting, the cake was sweet and delicious without it.
