Coconut Icing

  1. Lightly spray an 8x8" cake tin with oil. I used Brandless Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  3. In a medium bowl mix together your flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices & salt. Set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl whisk together your melted coconut oil, eggs, coconut sugar, pumpkin puree & vanilla.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well.
  6. Transfer to your greased cake tin and bake for 40-43 mins.
  7. Once a skewer comes out clean when inserted, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before transferring to a plate.
  8. While the cake is cooling, make your coconut butter icing by adding your liquid coconut butter to a food processor. *If your coconut butter is solid, gently heat it by microwaving it on low for 30 seconds or placing it in a saucepan of hot water.
  9. Add in your maple syrup and water and blend on low for 2 minutes, until you have a thick icing consistency.
  10. Pour onto the cooled cake and place cake in a cool area of the kitchen to allow the icing to set a little.
  11. Once icing is slightly solidified, cut cake into squares and enjoy.

A few things to note:

  • I used an 8×8″ cake tin for baking and the height of the finished product was perfect.
  • Cooking time may also vary here — my recommendation is to bake for 40-43 minutes. The cake should be slightly firm to the touch with still a bit of give. A good way to test that it’s done is by inserting a skewer into the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is done.
  • The cake comes out pretty moist. I like my cake this way, so to keep it moist, I would recommend storing in an airtight container on the counter. Once the cake goes in the fridge, it will firm up. If you decide to store in the fridge, I would recommend heating up the cake in the microwave for 15 seconds to get it back to that freshly baked texture.


* Always check product labels.
