Cake

Ingredients:

100g blanched almonds (or a total of 100g of any nuts you may have e.g brazil nuts, cashew nuts, hazel nuts etc but try to have at least 50g almonds)
70g tapioca starch
1tsp GF baking powder
120g coconut oil
90g Xylitol
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 eggs

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees. Grease / line a 23cm square cake tin or rub it with coconut oil
2. Grind 100g blanched nuts whatever combination you have in the pantry
3. Add 70g tapioca starch & 1 tsp GF baking powder. 3 quick turbo blasts. Set aside in a separate bowl.
4. *No need to clean the bowl* Add 120g coconut oil, 90g xylitol & 1 tsp vanilla essence. Heat on a pan on low while you stir it all together and coconut oil has completely melted.
5. If your blender has a butterfly wisk use this. Add 3 eggs and whisk until all wet ingredients blended in. But don’t over do it.
6. With the butterfly wisk on low slowly add spoon by spoon the dry ingredients
7. Once all dry mixture has been added, turn off and make sure any dry mixture sitting on the butterfly has been pushed off into the batter. And whisk again briefly just to ensure all dry ingredients are mixed in thoroughly.
8. Pour into prepared cake tin. Bake in oven for 15 minutes (or until you poke a tooth pick in and it comes out with no wet mixture on it). Keep an eye on it – should finish up with a golden brown top which is spongy to the touch.
9. Remove from oven and allow to cool. If possible wait till completely cool before cutting.

Filling

Ingredients:

55g of chosen frozen berries
10g chia seeds
15g water (cold is fine)
10g Xylitol

Method:
Blend all these ingredients together then let it sit in a small bowl in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.

Icing

Ingredients:

65g coconut oil
20g cacao (or cocoa powder)
25g thick coconut milk (we used canned – Ayam brand as that is preservative free)
60g xylitol
1 tsp vanilla extract

Method:

Add all ingredients to a blender and mix it thoroughly.
Assembly:
1. Use your largest knife to cut any rounded edges off the cake so you have a perfect square.
2. Using the same knife and a measuring tape, cut the cake into squares.
3. Flip all the cake squares over so that the surface that was in contact with the baking paper is faced upward.
4. Using a butter knife, spread the filling between each cake and sandwich together
5. Now the final step is to coat the two pieces you spread the filling between and then coat that chocolatey mixture with desiccated coconut and repeat these steps till all your squares are used.
6. If you have an odd number of squares and have some filling left spread filling on that square cake and put some desiccated coconut on it as well. Absolutely delicious!
7. Now to let it all set put it into the fridge for approx. an hour or so (how long will depend how “cool” you left the cake to get before doing steps 3 – 6)

Substitutions

* Where baking soda is listed it is preferable to use 4-6 drops of Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide as a rising agent instead as we find the baking soda can raise the pH of the stomach too much for some people.

* Where sweeteners such as stevia, maple syrup etc are listed, it is best to try using fresh fruit as a sweetener instead first and if this is not sweet enough, then discuss options for sweeteners with your practitioner. If honey is listed, ensure you use unpasteurised honey and discuss whether honey is appropriate for you with your practitioner.

*Where butter is listed, substitute for coconut oil for a dairy/lactose free alternative

* We have counted recipes with Ghee (many dairy free people are fine with ghee as there is no casein or lactose) or Butter as Dairy Free (DF) because these can usually be exchanged for coconut oil (this will alter flavour but is still usually very tasty).

* Where almond meal or almond flour is used in a recipe – ideally you would replace it with freshly ground almonds or you can try switching this for coconut flour if you have been advised to minimise or cut out nuts.
