*From NourishingMeals.Com

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon organic butter or coconut oil (at room temperature)
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • unbleached parchment paper
  • 6 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 6 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 large pastured eggs
  • 4 tablespoons melted organic butter or coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • zest of 1 organic orange
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

*Always use organic and unsweetened ingredients whenever possible.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place a 9-inch cake pan onto a sheet of parchment paper and draw a line around the bottom with a pencil. Cut out the circle and place it onto the bottom of the cake pan. Grease the sides of the pan with butter or coconut oil.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the butter or coconut oil, maple syrup, and arrowroot powder. Spread it onto the parchment paper in the cake pan (I use an offset spatula to do this). Arrange the cranberries on top of the butter-syrup mixture.
  3. Whisk together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Pour the wet into the dry and quickly whisk together until combined. Pour batter over fruit and spread evenly with the back of a spoon or spatula.
  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Let pan cool on a wire rack for 15 to 20 minutes then carefully flip out onto a plate; peel off parchment paper. Let cool and then serve. Enjoy!
