RECIPE NOTE:

* Using the THM Baking Blend in this recipe might produce a slightly denser cake than if using the coconut flour + golden flax + almond meal option.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS & VARIATIONS:

– This can be made with other berries such as raspberry or blueberry. You can also add nuts to the batter or the topping, if desired.
– A little grated orange or lemon rind in the topping gives it a pop of citrus flavor.
– For a dairy-free version – use Coconut oil or Dairy Free Butter Spread and leave out the sour cream, adding an extra egg or some almond milk to make up the difference in moisture.
