Paleo Chocolate Birthday Cake

Last year for my birthday hubby made me a very yummy birthday cake that was somewhat labor intensive to make. So this year on his birthday I decided to make one for him, but since it was sunny and warm outside, I didn't want to spend the whole day inside making cake. I decided to go for a quick and easy, but very yummy chocolate chocolate chip cake with a drizzled chocolate frosting. Everyone loved it and some even asked for seconds!

Chocolate Cake
1 C almond flour
2 Tbs. Coconut flour
3 T cocoa powder
4 Eggs
2 Tbs vanilla
1 tps cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C Honey
½ C applesauce
1 C chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients except chocolate chips. Stir in chocolate chips. Spoon batter into parchment lined cake pan.  I cut a circle of parchment for the bottom them made some wings to hang out over the sides to make it easier to remove from the pan. Bake about 20-25 minutes.  This recipe makes one 8" round cake. For layer cake double recipe.

Chocolate Drizzle Frosting
1 C Chocolate chips (use 72% or higher cocoa)
1/2 C coconut oil

Melt Chocolate and chips in a microwave safe bowl stirring frequently in 30 second intervals. Drizzle over cake when melted.
