- 2 TBS coconut flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon espresso powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon butter, softened
- ½ - ¾ cup Swerve Granular (depends on sweetness- ½ cup is more of a dark chocolate flavor, and ¾ cup will be more of a semi-sweet chocolate flavor)
- ½ cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 4 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 sticks butter
- 6 TBS of whipping cream or milk
