Instructions
Almond Cake Instructions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F (Bake).
  2. Line the bottom of a 9” round cake pan with parchment. (I generally trace the bottom of the cake pan onto the parchment and cut it to fit. This is a huge help for releasing the cake after it cools.)
  3. Place the ½ cup of sliced almonds in a small bowl.
  4. Separate your eggs by placing the whites into the bowl of a stand mixer and the yolks into a medium to large mixing bowl.
  5. Whisk the egg whites on high until they reach a stiff peak consistency. (If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can use a hand mixer or whisk of course!)
  6. In the bowl with the egg yolks, add the coconut milk, honey, vanilla
The Brain Doc’s Birthday Cake Instructions:
  1. Refrigerate the cans of coconut milk overnight to help separate the coconut water from the cream and solidify the cream.
  2. Bake the almond cake 35-40 minutes then completely cool. Cut in half to create two layers.
  3. Whisk 1 cup of the cold coconut milk with the vanilla extract, salt, and vanilla Stevia to taste (start with just a few drops). The cream should whip up quickly into a thick whipped cream consistency. Store in refrigerator until ready for use.
  4. In a small to medium bowl, stir together the strawberries, blueberries, water and berry Stevia to taste (start with just a few drops).
  5. On top of the bottom cake layer, drizzle the juices from the berries evenly to moisten the cake. Top with berries and whipped cream. Add the top layer and enjoy!
  6. VARIATIONS: You can use any flavor of liquid Stevia that you’d like to flavor the coconut whipped cream (chocolate, berry, toffee, orange).
