May is national strawberry month.
The perfect month to make a strawberry cake for a May birthday baby like Ping.
Grain Free Coconut Strawberry Cake
2 1/4 cups coconut flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp honey
1 1/4 cup milk
1 cup diced strawberries, plus more for top
1 cup low fat plain yogurt
Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and coconut in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl or large measuring cup whisk together the oil, honey, milk, and egg. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry and fold in the strawberries. Bake 30 minutes until cooked through (cake may be crumbly as that is what I tend to get with coconut flour, but the dogs wont mind). To frost the cake I drained the yogurt in a cheese cloth lined sieve for a few hours to make a thicker and then spooned it over the cake and topped with a few strawberries.
We had a little tea party for mother's day and Ping's birthday and I made some human friendly recipes too, they are on my new blog The Old Fashioned Way which is going to be about vintage things.
