Eggnog Breakfast Cake with a Maple Butter Glaze: Grain and Nut Free
Let me first start off by saying that this eggnog cake is to die for. When I first started my journey of healthy eating, I never in a million years would have thought I would have healthier cake and bread like things that tasted so….cake and bread like, but even better. I’ve been drinking my dairy free eggnog like it’s going out of style and wanted to experiment by putting it in some baked goods. I am so glad I did because this cake is amazing and what I plan on making for Christmas morning breakfast (and a lot of other mornings, too!) Please don’t forget the maple butter glaze – it totally makes this cake. I could lick that stuff by the spoonful! Even if you are not an eggnog fan, you have got to try this cake. You will not regret it, I promise! And it has all wholesome ingredients so you don’t have to feel bad about eating it for breakfast…or lunch….or dinner
Eggnog Breakfast Cake with a Maple Butter Glaze
4 free range eggs
1 cup dairy free eggnog (or any eggnog will work)
¼ cup coconut oil or grass fed butter, melted
2 T honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup coconut flour
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
Maple Butter Glaze:
¼ cup grass fed butter
3 T dairy free eggnog (or any eggnog will work)
1 T pure maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together the eggs, milk, honey, coconut oil and vanilla in a medium bowl. Add in the coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt. Pour into a greased 8×8 pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cover with foil. Bake for 10 more minutes or until middle is set. Let cool for a few minutes.
To make the maple butter glaze: in a small pot over medium heat, heat the butter stirring constantly until little brown bits appear on the bottom. As soon as the brown bits appear on the bottom, immediately remove from heat but continue stirring constantly for about 30 – 45 seconds. Add in maple syrup and eggnog and stir for about a minute until well combined. Spoon glaze onto the cake and serve. Enjoy!
