Red Velvet Cake ~ a Trim Healthy Mama S dessert

Red Velvet cake has been calling my name. 

I am not kidding when I tell you, I have been dreaming of

Red Velvet cake!


Christmas is not Christmas without it!


I told some of my blogging buddies that I was creating a Red Velvet Cake..

They have been patently waiting for it..

Here it is with just a few pictures I was able to snap before

it was devoured by my Church family.



Red Velvet Cake ~ S~

1 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup flax seed meal (I use golden flax)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup sweet blend ( I use my homemade sweet blend)

2 tablespoon unsweetened  coco powder

10 eggs

1 teaspoon white vinegar

1 oz. of red food coloring

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cup almond milk

1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)


In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together.  Set aside.   In another bowl combine eggs, vinegar, vanilla.  Mix with electric mixer.

Stir in almond milk, and melted coconut oil into egg mixture.   Gently combine wet ingredients with dry.  Mix until its all combined well.

Stir in the red food coloring.  Pour into round, or square 9x13 pan.  Bake at 350 for  30 mins.

( Your baking time may be shorter or longer depending on what its cooked in.)

Cool, then frost.


Cream cheese Frosting

 3 tablespoons Butter ( softened)

1 – 8 oz. softened cream cheese

splash of vanilla

1/4 powdered sweet blend


Cream butter and cream cheese.  Add sweet blend and vanilla.


This frosted one square 9x13 pan of cake.



Merry Christmas!






  1. What is your homemade sweet blend?

  2. I'm going to try it & I know I'll love it. Thank you! Thank you!

  3. Going to try, can I use swerve, and would it be the same amounts

  4. Is the reason this calls for 10 eggs because of the dry coconut flour? Do you know if there is a way to use the THM baking blend and less eggs? Thank you!

    1. you can try it with the baking blend.. I have not tried it yet.. you are right.. i had to use more eggs cause of the coconut flour... I would do half eggs with the BB. ....

  5. Thank you so much for your quick reply! I will let you know how it turns out if I get a chance to make it soon!

  6. Do you know if this would fill one or two 9-inch round pans?

  7. Does this make two 9 in round pans or just one?

  8. Throw about truvia instead of sweet blend? How much truvia?

  9. This seems like it would be an overwhelming coconut taste. I made an angel food cake with 1/4 cup coconut flour once and it was so coconutty we didnt like it.
