1/2  teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup coconut flour

We are trying to eat "caveman" style, this cake has a good taste, is easy, and doesn't call for too many unusual ingredients.  We liked it, in fact.
It is from my recipe book Make it paleo.

Cauliflower, mashed

1/2  cauliflower head washed and sectioned in flowerets
Steam approx 7-10 minutes

While cauliflower is steaming
Sauté  1/2 onion, cut in small pieces
1 clove garlic

Add onion and garlic and mash together

Nice variation from mashed potatoes
We tried this during the winter of 2014 when we started to experiment with the cave man diet.
