The Spunky Coconut Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts Review and Giveaway

Update: This giveaway is now closed. The winner is Jenny B. Jenny was selected by random.org and her comment was: I have never heard of Kelly’s book or blog before, but she is on a similar healing journey to our family’s and I am looking forward to learning more. I would be honored to have a copy of her book. Thanks for making this available!” Congrats to Jenny B. and thanks to all who entered! Special thanks to Kelly for graciously offering her book! Be sure to check out other reviews and giveaways on my Out and About page.

Kelly Brozyna (The Spunky Coconut) first shared her Vanilla Bean Cake back in June 2009. I loved how creative her recipe was and how delicious it looked from the moment she shared it. And, it didn’t take long for Spunky Coconut reader reviews of this recipe to start pouring in. Now if you don’t know Kelly, her blog, and this recipe, you may be wondering how a cake with a vanilla bean is unique. But you see … it’s not a cake with a vanilla bean. It’s a grain-free cake made from cooked white beans and some coconut flour. The vanilla factor comes from the liquid vanilla crème stevia. Vanilla + bean = Vanilla Bean Cake! I have long drooled over this cake, but never had all the ingredients until late last week. First, my copy of Kelly’s new cookbook, The Spunky Coconut Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts, arrived—courtesy of Kelly. The following day, my Tropical Traditions coconut flour was delivered. The recipe for Vanilla Bean Cake is in this latest cookbook (and on Kelly’s blog here). Finally, I was ready to make Kelly’s Vanilla Bean Cake. It was easy to make and it did not disappoint! It’s a lovely yellow cake full of all the good stuff—especially protein and fiber. Nobody would ever guess the main ingredient. This cake was so good “as is,” that I didn’t even frost it right away. As you can see in the photo by the time I did frost it, it was almost half gone. I used Kelly’s frosting recipe using Scharffen Berger bittersweet chocolate as my choice of chocolate. Instead of waiting for the frosting to firm up in the refrigerator enough to be spreadable, I poured it over the cake after just a few minutes. I poked a few holes in the top of the cake so that my thin version of the frosting would permeate the cake in spots. Of course, the frosted version provided a completely different, but still delicious experience than eating the cake by itself, but I loved them both.

If you know Kelly and her blog, you already know that she’s been healing her family of celiac, gluten intolerance, ADD, and autism through food and biomedical treatments the last several years. Kelly’s recipes are gluten free, casein free, refined sugar free, and often egg free, but like the Vanilla Bean Cake, they are all amazingly delicious. So many who are living with intolerances have benefited from Kelly’s blog and recipes. Now add to that two cookbooks!

Kelly’s cookbooks are totally her own creation, including the photographs. That’s rare in cookbook publishing from what I’ve seen, but Kelly and her husband, Andrew, self publish through their Apidae Press. The cookbooks are printed on demand within the U.S.  I loved Kelly’s first cookbook, The Spunky Coconut Cookbook, and still do, but I have to say that I love this one even more. There are 80 recipes, including 50 that are egg free. And, this cookbook is just gorgeous! I read through it and loved it all—the Foreword by Ali (The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen), Kelly’s introduction and recommendations, and, of course, all the recipes (with ingredients I use) and those stunning photos. Then I put her cookbook down. A few minutes later, I picked it up again and looked through it. Then I set it aside. Then I picked it up and flipped through the pages once more. The cycle kept repeating itself. It’s such a beautifully done cookbook that it’s truly irresistible. I’m lucky to call Kelly a friend and especially honored and grateful that she mentions me and gfe twice in her new cookbook, but I’d highly recommend this cookbook even if I didn’t know her.

So here’s the really great news … Kelly has graciously donated a signed copy of The Spunky Coconut Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts to one lucky gfe reader! There are numerous ways you can enter the giveaway. One entry is all that’s required, but feel free to do them all. (If you don’t enter giveaways, you can purchase Kelly’s new cookbook through her Spunky Coconut store here or via Amazon here.) This giveaway will end Sunday, December 19, at midnight Eastern.

    I just made her vanilla bean cake yesterday and it was a big hit with the hubby. He said it tasted like a vanilla box mix – which is a compliment for something gluten free! :)
    Next I really want to try her pumpkin spice cake. It looks delicious!

    I “liked” both gfe and Spunky Coconut on Facebook. I cannot wait to make the Vanilla Bean cake – it looks so perfect and the ingredients are everything I am “allowed” to eat. I do have a question regarding the Stevia. I still haven’t broken down and bought any – what happens if you just leave it out? It seems like such a small smount; does it really have a big impact? Can there be a substitution? Or should I just go ahead and buy some?
    Thanks!

    • Shirley on December 19th, 2010 1:00 pm

      Hey Jess–First, it looks like you are new here … welcome! :-) The Vanilla Bean Cake is pretty darned amazing. If you leave the stevia out, the cake most likely won’t be sweet enough. Adding more honey or agave would work for the sweetness, but the liquid content would be thrown off. So you’d have to play around with a non-stevia version. Stevia is great to have on hand though. It can last a long time, too, since one doens’t use that much of it. Good luck with your experimenting! ;-)

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea for a cake! The play on words in the name threw me off for a while, thinking that it meant “vanilla beans.” I’ve had flourless chocolate cakes, and lentil brownies, and bean-flour piecrust, but this is the first cooked white bean cake I’ve seen, so I am eager to try it.

    What an inventive way to use white beans I will be anxious to try this recipe….thanks

    Vanilla Bean Cake

  128. shannon on December 15th, 2010 3:46 pm

    Cake looks great. I have The Spunky Coconut Cookbook and enjoy it.

  129. Maggie on December 15th, 2010 10:21 pm

    WOW! This cake looks amazing Shirley. I would have a slice with some constant comment, okay? I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of Kelly’s book. I would love to try one of the many egg-free recipes. xo

    hi, I have visited Kelly’s site several times. too many to count actually. She and her site are amazing!!! I did make the vanilla bean cake and was quite impressed.It was so good. and if you did not know better you’d never believe that it has beans in it. I will definitely be trying some more of her recipes.

    I’ve made Kelly’s vanilla bean cake several times…including tonight. It’s a great pregnancy craving to have since it’s so full of nutrition from the white beans, coconut flour and coconut oil, and eggs. Chocolate has antioxidants too, right?! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

    I am just finding all good things about coconut oil ….My husband had a heartattack and now diabetes and he loves sweets so i could use a healthy cookbook. I just found out about you on facebook….I look forward to your info.

  155. Jess on December 18th, 2010 5:05 pm

    I have been wanting to make the infamous vanilla bean cake.

    Went to whole foods today. I finally have everything.
    IT’S HAPPENIN’ SOON.

  157. Shirley on December 19th, 2010 1:13 pm

    Oh, how I wish I could reply to all of you! Please know that I am in my head, but my fingers are too weary to actually do so and the Christmas “to do” list isn’t being whittled down fast enough. ;-) Thanks so much for all the social connections to gfe and to the Spunky Coconut, and, of course, thanks for all your wonderful comments and entries!

    Holiday hugs to all!
    Shirley

  158. Jenny B on December 21st, 2010 3:44 pm

    Wow! Just saw that I won! How exciting! We just found out that my mom, who will be 68 on Sunday, has developed diabetes. In addition to be a great resource for my own family, I am looking forward to sharing some of the tasty treats from this cookbook, as sweets are one of her biggest temptaions. Now I can offer her some healthy versions and try to get her blood sugar to stabalize. Thanks so much, Shirley and Kelly!!

    Blessings,
    Jenny

      Congrats again, Jenny! It sounds like Kelly’s book will really be a wonderful and critical resource for you and your family. :-) I’ll be sending you an email so you can respond with your mailing address so you can receive The Spunky Coconute Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts ASAP. ;-)

      You’re very welcome, dear … happy holidays to you!
      Shirley
