Lemon Coriander Cake {gluten free + paleo}

Lemon Coriander Cake is a delightful, not too sweet cake that has a surprising flavor of coriander with the brightness of lemon.  Made with almond, tapioca, and coconut flour and sweetened with maple syrup.  A low calorie, dense, gluten free, and paleo friendly cake recipe.

Are you looking at this recipe and thinking is this a cake or bread?

Well if a recipe has soda in it, that is baking soda, then it is considered a bread.  No baking soda in this recipe, so then you have yourself a cake.  However, I want a quick side note that I did, in fact, have a big old slice for breakfast on Sunday with my coffee, so then it was bread.   I am all powerful like that.

This Lemon Coriander Cake is dense, heavy and not too sweet.  The lemon and coriander flavor combination add little je ne sais quoi.

Are you familiar with coriander?

Coriander actually comes from the seeds of a Cilantro plant but tastes nothing like the green leafy herb.  It actually has a mellow, subtle, earthy, lemony flavor.  Which pairs surprisingly well here in this bread with the fresh lemon zest.  I actually had a lemon coriander biscotti at a restaurant that I fell in love with and that inspired this recipe.

Make sure to use organic lemons in this recipe.  Most pesticide residue is concentrated in the peel, so buy organic when using peel in baking or drinks

You should store this bread in wrapped tightly in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.  If it lasts that long.
