Paleo Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe

There are certain things that are pretty hard to make both Paleo and delicious. I find that baked goods that are truly cakey are the hardest. I made this Paleo sour cream coffee cake recipe while we had a friend in town who has celiac disease. I knew that when she couldn’t stop eating it, this recipe was a winner! 

Paleo Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe

A traditional sour cream cake calls for white flour, white sugar, plus sour cream and butter. In my recipe, the mixture of cassava, almond, and coconut flowers is what gives it its cakey texture.
