  1. This pumpkin cake is delicious and makes a satisfying breakfast item with coffee! I would recommend storing it in the refrigerator though, if you don’t eat it all in one day–mine went rancid after sitting wrapped on the counter for two days (which hasn’t usually happened when I have made pumpkin bread, but I think it is due to the high amount of eggs in this recipe).

      1. Is the batter supposed to be really loose? The batter was so wet I had to add a few extra handfuls of coconut flour to thicken it a little, even then it was still a pouring batter.

  2. I made the pumpkin cake tonight and it was Delicious but, since I had left over purée I made a second batch and made COOKIES instead!! You Must try if you haven’t already. They turned out Awesome!! I baked them at 400 for 12-14 mins…perfection!!
    Side note: I tried to give you 5 stars but, my iPhone wouldn’t let me select it :( Stupid smartphone!

  3. This looks so wonderful!! Any suggestions on what I could use instead of eggs? I am on an autoimmune protocol and cannot have them.

  4. Awesome! I didn’t do the chocolate chips or walnuts but it was still so good! The texture was killer, not dry like some coconut flour recipes can be. It was yummy with out the frosting but over the top awesome with it! Very satisfying with out being overly sweet. I really like the nutritional ratio of it too, lots of eggs, coconut oil, pumpkin, I will definitely be making this again!! Thank you for another great recipe!!

  5. Okay, you got me. I'm going to make this, but because I am short of time these are going to be made into muffins. And for the frosting, well, I don't have any of the shortening so I will try with butter…and make a nice melty butter topping. :)
