Paleo Strudel Coffee Cake with Icing

Not Coffee Cake because there's actual Coffee in it but because you eat it along side a cup of coffee!  

Ingredients Cake:
Almond Flour 3 cups
Coconut Milk 3/4 cup
Apple Sauce 1/2 cup all natural
Eggs 2 large
Stevia in the Raw 1/4 cup
Vanilla 1 tablespoon 
Baking Soda 1 teaspoon 

Mix all Cake ingredients together to make a batter and place in a 10x10 baking pan lined with parchment paper.  Set Cake aside and go to next step.

Ingredients Strudel:
Dates 1 & 1/2 cups
Nuts 1 cup (Almonds/Walnuts/Pecans)
Coconut Oil 1/4 cup
Vanilla 1 teaspoon 

Grind all ingredients in food processor until a paste forms in a large ball.  This takes time; keep scraping down to get all the lumps out.  In small pea like size portions place Strudel topping on top of the Cake batter; make sure to spread out evenly across top of cake.  Bake at 350 degrees for 17-20 minutes.  

Ingredients Icing:
Coconut Oil 1 cup
Agave/Honey/Maple 1/2 cup
Arrow Root Powder 1 tablespoon 
Vanilla 1 teaspoon 

Work Agave/Honey/Maple into Coconut Oil while its in its natural state (do not melt).  Once a paste has formed you may add the Arrow Root Powder and Vanilla and keep mixing until smooth.  Spread over fully cooled Cake.  This Cake is not over sweet and can can even be eaten for breakfast as well as dessert; Enjoy!!
