Paleo Strawberry Shortcake
Friday, Friday, Friday....it's been a pretty good week. I've been single-parenting it this week as the hubby has been working at a summer camp. I think our chickens have been worse than my kids....those derned chickens keep getting out of their coop. First thing Monday, they are getting their wings clipped! It gets me mad to have spent my time and effort building a chicken coop to keep those birds out of my neighbours veggie garden, only to have them out everyday! Actually, it makes me more angry that there are only 1-3 of 8 chickens out. So, however those few are getting out the others seem to be too dull to figure it out...? I don't know, but things like that get under my skin, and make my heart rate come up! Remember from Family Matters? 3, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3, what the heck is bothering me (skip past the first minute)? That's me in the morning while chasing the chickens....watch that link, and think of me with my chickens. I'm Carl Winslow, the chickens are Steve Urkel. 'Nuf said....
Bring on dessert!
These little cakes are light, but dense.....if that makes any sense! That is why it's called a shortcake, I think?!? These differ a bit from another paleo vanilla cupcake I made a while ago. I wanted these to be a little less "cup-cakey", and more like a real strawberry shortcake.
So, I hope you make these, and I hope you have a good weekend! We're heading to a wedding, and I'm really excited about it!

These are lovely! I ate a few leftover ones just plain (no berries or cream), and they were still so nice. :)

Dessert makes everything better! As far as the chickens go, just clip the leader and everyone else will stay put.

Take me to their leader.....no, seriously, I don't know who their leader is!!! Haha, all my chickens look the same, and because they are back in their coop, I don't see them and their interactions too much. Help. And, dessert does make everything better. :)

Thanks for the great looking recipe! Seems you could sub in just about any ripe summer fruit (nectarines, peaches, blackberries, blueberries, etc. ) I did want to check the ratios though - there really is 6 eggs to only 1/2 cup coconut flour and 1/2 cup coconut oil? It doesn't seem like enough dry ingredients, but what do I know? :)

I only had 3 eggs, so I cut the recipe in half and decided to bake it in a small loaf pan. I baked it for 10 minutes at 375, then 15 minutes at 350, and it looks really good! It's not a big loaf by any means, but it's golden and fluffy! Great recipe!
