the one with Jello Cake – that’s sort of paleo

Jello cake is one of my favorite and easy desserts! It’s light, fruity, easy to make and has one of my favorite things ever – cool whip. Now jello and cool whip are not paleo , but I was determined to make the rest of it paleo.

Dessert just isn’t dessert if it’s completely perfect is it? my answer is no

here’s what you’ll need . . .

2.5 cups of almond flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

4 eggs

2/3 cup maple syrup

2/3 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup almond milk

2 tablepoons vanilla extract

1 package of your preferred flavor of jello

cool whip for topping

Preheat your oven to 350 and coat 9×13 pan with coconut oil

sift almond flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl

add the eggs to that mixture

mix the maple syrup, oil, milk, and vanilla – the coconut oil will be clumpy and I’ve learned that’s ok.

add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients

pour batter into pan and bake for 30ish minutes.

once the cake is completely cook to the touch – I like to leave it in the fridge overnight just to be totally sure.

take a fork and poke lots of holes in it.  . . . lots of holes in it.

prepare jello per box instructions except don’t let it set  . . .

pour the liquid jello into the cake and then let it sit overnight.

service with cool whip on top. or however you like your cool whip
