Tags: Food, Passover

You absolutely do not have to sacrifice flavor to cater to your guests. This orange coconut chocolate cake is gluten free, grain free, wheat free…and tasty. It uses coconut flour (which is notorious for not behaving like other flours) which adds a wonderful taste and texture. This cake also makes a perfect addition to your Passover repertoire.
