I will try this BUT one thing you need to make sure for it to be Paleo; the chocolate chips need to be vegan

I didn't have any eggs so I used liquid egg whites and it turned out amazing!! This is the best cake I've ever tasted paleo or not! I'll definitely be making it again!!

Tasty and easy. I didn't have coffee extract, used about 1/4 tsp instant coffee
