I bet you thought I forgot. As promised, here is my recipe for Triple Layer Frozen Paleo Cake…although my intensions while making it were Paleo Ice Cream Cake, the ice cream is reaaaally only the top layer. :)
This was the triple layered treat that I made for my birthday last year. Last year, on that day, was when I re-introduced sugar back into my diet, and by sugar I mean the Paleo-ish variety.
In the three months prior to my birthday I removed all dairy, nightshades, fruit, honey, maple syrup…basically anything that wasn’t a vegetable, protein or fat.
It was a (mostly) fun little experiment, but I can’t tell you how much I missed fruit. Not only did I want to experiment with other foods, I also wanted to test if I had any specific reactions to removing certain foods.
This recipe can take some time, to get all the layers prepared, if you’re making it all on the same day. As an alternative you can choose to split it between 2 or 3 days. If you make the brownie layer first and keep it covered in the freezer, you can then make the cookie dough layer and the ice cream layer on the second (or third) day, or whenever you decide to serve it.
I used an 8×8 glass baking dish for the entire cake. The base of this Paleo cake came from my Chocolate Paleo Banana Bread recipe and that produced a nice-and-thick brownie layer on the bottom. If you don’t want the brownie layer to be as thick, I recommend using a rectangular baking dish so the bottom layer can spread out more.
Like any other frozen cake, it may be hard to slice when you remove it from the freezer, but once you do, I guarantee you’ll love it. :)
Note: Make sure you keep any leftovers stored in the freezer.
