Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch cake pan and set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine almonds, tapioca starch, potato starch, baking powder, Spiced Vanilla Bean Sugar and cocoa powder. In a separate bowl, combine applesauce, butter, eggs and milk. Add wet mixture to dry, stirring to thoroughly combine. Fold in coconut and chocolate chips. Pour batter into cake pan and bake until middle is solid, about 30 min. When a toothpick is inserted, it should come out clean. Cool for 1 hour before serving.
Fantastic with a dollop of whipped cream or with your favorite ice cream!
"I wanted to Thank You for the care that went into my last order. Everything was bagged and wrapped PERFECTLY. It really means a lot when I get a note thanking me for the business, and Nate- who wrote the note and I presume filled the order- did an OUTSTANDING job! I found you over 3 years ago while looking for specific spices for a Vodka recipe. I was so tired running from store to store looking for hard to find spices like Ras el Hanout, Fenugreek seeds, Berbere seasoning, or pomegranate molasses! Your fresh and potent spices, blends and waters make me look like a 'rock star chef' to my family- they THINK I know what I am doing! Thank you again for the choices you give to us and for a fabulous product!"
