    Is the Nunatural the powder or the liquid? I would like to try the recipe. It looks great! Thanks for posting it!

  2. Annie says:

    I made this for my daughter’s 6th birthday, and my son asked if I would make another for his 5th birthday! This recipe ROCKS! Love the glaze idea, yum!

  3. Laundry Mom Angela says:

    Hey Marily! The Nunatruals is a powder and you can get it at most health food stores or off amazon! Thanks for the comment!

  4. Rebekah Brown says:

    Does the coconut flour taste like coconut? No one in my family likes even a hint of a taste of coconut. So could we use almond flour instead? And almond milk?

    • Emily says:

      Coconut flour acts very differently from almond flour in recipes, so I don’t think that would work well. I don’t think it tastes like coconut personally, but I LOVE coconut so I might not be the best person to ask 🙂

  5. Michelle says:

    This looks wonderful. I’m so happy to see the recipe lined out like this and a photo. I’m kindof ‘strange’ about recipes. I want to see them before I make them, that way I know what its suppose to look like. Yours looks so good. I will definitely make this cake for my diabetic mom for her birthday. I have read the recipe in the book a couple of times, but haven’t wanted to try it until now. Thank you!

    This looks great. Today is day 2 thm for me. My family is not doing thm. My little boy is turning 3 saturday. He wants a chocolate cake. I am planning on making this. I am nervous. I don’t have nunaturals hopefully I can get it. What does it do? Also should I make it a day ahead of time or same day? Ok one last question. I don’t have a reputable source of eggs. There is a place down the road I can get some. Are the eggs in the frosting ok to eat raw? Thanks a million!

  8. Keri B says:

    So what size cake pan will this recipe make..8 in, 10in rounds?

  9. Shelly S says:

    I was wondering what the conversion is for the sweetner if you use the THM sweet blend or THM stevia? Thanks

  10. Ashley says:

    I have same question about the raw eggs in the frosting… would it be OK to serve to a 3 yr old?

    • laundrymoms says:

      Hi Ashley! I’ve never heard of anyone having an issue with this recipe and the raw eggs but you’ve gotta go with your mama gut instinct. I used to make a raw egg yolk pudding and never had issues with it.
