My mom loves spice cake, so for her birthday I decided to experiment with an alternative to the traditional cake recipe. I swapped the sugar out for Lakanto golden sweetener.

The results were great! The cake was pretty dense – probably due to the coconut/almond flour combo. It had a light sweetness to it and a good amount of flavor from the spices I used.

I definitely don’t think incorporating cleaned up dessert recipes should be incorporated into your daily routine. They do have their draw-backs, but for a special occasion like a birthday I am all for experimenting with less conventional recipes!


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup Lakanto golden sweetener
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup canned coconut milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbl cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice


  1. Preheat your oven to 350*F. Grease two round 6-inch cake pans with coconut oil.
  2. Add all of the cake ingredients into a large bowl and mix them together thoroughly.
  3. Spoon the batter into the cake pan. – It will have a thick / fluffy consistency, don’t be alarmed. 
  4. Cook the cakes for about 40 minutes, or until the edges are brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. After the cakes are done cooking, allow them to cool for about 20 minutes.
  6. Remove the cake from the pan, and frost it! You can sprinkle a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg on top for decor if desired.
  7. Slice and enjoy!
