Lately, I’m obsessed with lemon-flavored desserts and I’m excited to share this delicious paleo lemon cake recipe with you.

After a few failed attempts to use coconut flour in my baking, I finally have succeeded. Don’t be scared that the recipe requires only 1/3 cup of flour. Regarding coconut flour: a little goes a long way.

If you have checked some of my recipes before, maybe you already know that I prefer simple recipes that don’t require too much work. However, this time I had to take an extra step – using a mixer, but it was definitely worth it. 😀

Since you are going to zest the lemon, I recommend you to check out my post on how to remove pesticides from the peal of fruits.

This lemon cake is very light, flavorful and tastes amazing!

Use a hand mixer to beat the two egg whites into a foam.

Add the egg foam little by little to the other mixture and fold in carefully using a silicone spatula.

Transfer the mixture into a tray covered with baking paper.

Bake for about 20-22 minutes.

Let it cool down completely before cutting.

 

Serving idea

Combine a little bit of lemon juice with some powdered sweetener of your choice.

The icing will be rather clear so you can sprinkle some desiccated coconut on top.

    Ellie this cake looks so moist and sweet! These would probably also taste nice as a lemon cake bar or with afternoon tea. Lovely recipe!

    You are right, Ellie, coconut flour can be tricky to work with! It’s exciting when you find a way to make it work in a recipe. I love lemon, so these sound delicious to me. 🙂

    This is an awesome recipe- it looks great, and healthy to boot! And I love that you mentioned the taking pesticides put of citrus peel part, a lot of people don’t think about them.
