Happy Birthday Week to Me! I always get the most shocked expression when I tell people I’m making my birthday cake.
Seriously who do they think is going to make it? Not Mr. Bejelly and most of my friends think coconut flour is some weird Asian creation.
This year I want dark chocolate. I want coconut. I want to cheat and eat a few pecans. I want frosting.
For the cake, I used my paleo chocolate cake recipe . This is hands down my favorite chocolate cake recipe EVER.
Why this is the Best German Chocolate Cake Frosting
- The frosting is AMAZING! Yeah, I’m putting out there. It is so simple and tasty that honestly I’m not sure it needs a cake. It’s like eating coconut candy.
- It’s made with less than 10 all natural ingredients found in most clean pantries.
- It’s egg-free and Vegan!

- Put the coconut milk and the maple syrup in a small pot on medium high and simmer until it's reduced by half. This can vary quite a bit. It took me 20 minutes but some readers have shared it takes 1 hour to 2 hours.
- Remove from heat and mix in the vanilla, sea salt, and coconut flakes. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes. The coconut flakes will absorb some of the water and thicken it.
- Lastly add in the chopped pecans
