For this cake, you can make it chocolate or vanilla. All you need to do is omit the cocoa powder from the recipe for a vanilla version that is just as delicious!
You’ll also see in the recipe card below that I provide instructions for almond flour or coconut flour.
I’ve really grown to love coconut flour lately because it is so much more affordable than almond flour. I know some people do not like the taste of coconut flour, so almond flour instructions are provided!
