This soft and fluffy lemon cake is bursting with bright lemon flavor! It’s gluten-free, grain-free and paleo-friendly!
This isn’t just any lemon cake either. It’s a super delicious cake that just so happens to be paleo-friendly, gluten-free and grain-free! You won’t be able to tell either – it’s rich and decadent and oh so luscious. A luscious lemon cake!
I mean, just look at that crumb!
And that layer of lemon curd on top? It’s a must! I have a paleo lemon curd on the blog, but if you eat sugar then try my instant pot lemon curd (I have yet to try my instant pot lemon curd with honey or maple syrup, but will update the post when I do!).
The candied lemons are a nice touch too, but not necessary. They make the cake so pretty though, don’t they?
While this is a light and fluffy cake, it’s also filling and satisfying thanks to the almond flour and coconut flour. So hopefully you’ll be able to be happy with just one slice…
But fair warning, you’ll probably reach for another slice because it’s so darn good 😉
- ½ cup coconut flour
- ½ cup almond flour
- ¼ cup tapioca or arrowroot flour
