30+ Paleo Cake Recipes

I’m back home after the most EPIC week in Sayulita, Mexico for my wedding week! The whole trip and all the events exceeded my expectations and it was one of the best weeks of my life. Only our family and closest friends were there since it was a destination wedding, and everything turned out perfectly from the beach ceremony to the private sunset cruise that ended the week. It makes me smile thinking about it!

While I’m dead tired, I’m still in a giddy, celebratory mood, and I figured, “Why not continue the celebration?” So I decided to round up some of the most delicious and decadent paleo cake recipes and share them with you. While my wedding cake wasn’t paleo, it WAS gluten free and I got to enjoy every bite of it! (I hope to share photos soon so be sure to follow along on Instagram.)

Clementine Chocolate Paleo Cake

chocolate clementine paleo cake-16I’m so excited that clementines are back in season! I saw them recently at Whole Foods and of course, I bought a whole 2 lb bag of it. I’ve been obsessed with clementines ever since I was young and I remember eating about 10 of them in one sitting and impressing my parents.

As much as I stay away from desserts and sugar, sometimes, especially with the holidays coming up, cake is necessary. I honestly don’t do well with too much sugar, so I try to satisfy my sweet tooth with fruits and natural sweeteners. So when I decided to create a cake, I used all healthy sweeteners to bake a delicious clementine chocolate cake and I had to share it with you today!

Instead of mixing the clementine slices into the batter, I decided to top the whole cake with them because they just look so pretty. The combination of chocolate and clementines go together so well, and you’ll love the burst of the juicy clementine slices as you bite into them.

Except for the 2 tablespoons of honey that goes into the batter, the cake is sweetened with bananas and clementines and you won’t miss the sugar at all! It’s plenty sweet and delicious, and it’s a healthy treat if you are trying to lower your sugar intake.

Also, if you end up making this, you HAVE TO make the glaze. It really pulls together the cake beautifully, and brings out the clementine flavors even more which I absolutely love!
