  • 1.5 cups organic cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup almond meal flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut finely shredded.
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup boiling water


  1. Mix softened coconut oil and sugar until creamy. Add vanilla, coconut milk and eggs. Mix thoroughly. Add almond meal, cocoa powder, coconut, baking soda and baking powder. Mix together. Add boiling water and mix. Pour into prepared cake pan or cupcake pan.
  2. 15-20 minutes for cupcakes. 30-35 minutes for a cake.



  • 2 cups Organic powdered sugar (or make your own by putting sugar and a little cornstarch in a blender until you get the consistency of powdered sugar)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut finely shredded
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Melt coconut oil in a warm pan. Add in vanilla and coconut milk. Warm on medium heat. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Stir and cook on medium heat until frosting begins to thicken. You don’t want it too thick, just thick enough to stay in place when you put it on the cupcake. It will harden a bit after it cools so you don’t want it getting too hard. If its too thin, add more powdered sugar.
  2. Frost warm cupcakes with warm frosting. Let cool before serving. Enjoy!

If someone could describe me in one sentence they would say, “She is fun and makes awesome food to eat”. I am a wife and mother of 4. I started out by watching The Food Network; my favorite cook to watch/learn from is Alton Brown. I love how he can teach you recipes, as well as explain how they work scientifically. I LOVE IT, and everyone around me loves it too. My family doesn’t like to go out to eat because “the food just isn’t as good”. I hope you enjoy the recipes you find here and you enjoy cooking them as much as I do!
