Warm your coconut butter till it is soft. If your honey is solid, warm it also to make it back into a liquid. Preheat oven to 300.
Method for food processor:
Blend the coconut butter and honey. Add butter, baking soda, and vanilla and blend. Add in the eggs last and blend until smooth.
Method for Vitamix or other high power blender:
Put in eggs first then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
Pour into a greased 9x13 pan or 2 greased 8x8 pans and bake for 40-50 min. It is done when a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
In a sauce pan melt the butter and honey together. Stir in the coconut. Pour over the cooled cake and let cool on the cake. Once cool it will thicken up and you can spread to make it even. This recipe was just right to frost a 9x13 cake.
You can also add 2 bananas, mashed, for banana cake.
Or 3/4 cup mashed butternut squash and/or ginger/cloves for spice cake.
Replace the butter with coconut oil for more coconut flavor and a dairy free version.
You can substitute any type of nut butter for the coconut butter in this cake and it will come out very good (but it won't be low oxalate). I have done it with cashew butter, walnut butter and pecan butter. They are all very good.
1 cup butter
1/8-1/4 cup honey depending on how sweet your honey is and how sweet you like it.
2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
