I’ve been craving funfetti cake for weeks now. Probably because I’ve been watching lots of Netflix’ Nailed It during this quarantine. I hope they have another season, because I totally want to audition. I’m definitely no baker, but I love it! And I love to give baking a healthy twist as well. Sugar, dairy, and gluten are like my kryptonite, so I love making healthy alternatives that actually taste good! This cake is just that, because even the kids liked it. 

Funfetti Healthy Cake

Ingredients: 

  • ¾ cup softened organic butter (or plant based butter) 
  • 1 cup coconut sugar for low-glycemic ​(or regular cane sugar if preferred)
  • 4  eggs
  • ½ cup almond or coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups almond flour​ 
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Organic or regular sprinkles

Directions: 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  • Makes 12 cupcakes or two 8-inch round cake pans. 
  • Line with parchment or cupcake paper. Or oil the pans and set aside.
  • Mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in eggs (one at a time) and beat until completely blended.
  • Add milk, vanilla extract and mix well. 
  • In a separate bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until smooth and creamy.
  • Fold in the sprinkles.
  • Divide batter evenly between the prepared cake or cupcake pans. 
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown on top. Test with a toothpick in the center of the cake to see if it’s ready. Toothpick should come out clean.
  • Allow the cake to completely cool down before applying the buttercream. 

For the buttercream:

  • 1 softened stick of butter (or plant based butter)
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar and/or sugar replacement Swerve (a mixture of stevia and monk fruit). You can find this at any health food store and/or Thrive Market online. If desired, you can add half cup of each, for a still sweet but less sugar alternative. 
  • 2 tbs of almond or coconut milk

Directions: 

  • Add all the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix all the ingredients with a hand mixer or by hand until the butter cream is nice and fluffy. Slowly add more powdered sugar if needed, or until you achieve a desired consistency. 
  • Apply to the cake and/or cupcakes. Decorate with sprinkles.
