Hi, Mama! The month of January is full of celebrations, just when I thought the holiday parties and obligations were over with – I now am getting ready for multiple birthday celebrations with my Paleo Birthday Cake recipe.

Substitutions and Modifications

I love baking; there are so many ways you can transform a recipe based on your likes and what’s available in your kitchen and pantry.

Grass-Fed Butter

Recently I started incorporating grass-fed butter (Kerrygold) into my family’s diet. If you eat a more primally aligned diet, you know where to find Kerrygold butter (Costco, Woodmans, Walmart, etc.). For those of you who choose not to indulge in grass-fed butter or are particularly sensitive, you can substitute it with coconut oil. Ratio 1:1. Do note that swapping out the butter in this recipe and replacing it with coconut oil will change the flavor and consistency.

Coconut Sugar

Coconut sugar is an excellent alternative to refined sugar most non-Paleo recipes call for. Best of all the ratio is 1:1. However, after a few months on a Paleo/Primal diet your taste buds will change – at least mine did. Even the slightest amount of sweet can be too much for me. So I always say when it comes to baking with any kind of sugar (maple syrup, honey, or stevia) always use your best judgment. Start with half the amount the recipes calls for and add more as needed — this rule goes for any recipe. If you can not handle the taste of coconut sugar, try using one of the natural sugars listed above.
