Instructions

Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 180Β° C. Line two bases of a 14 cm springform cake tins with baking paper. 

  2. To prepare flax eggs, simply grind flax seeds in a coffee grinder. Mix 2 tablespoons of grounded flax seeds with 6 tablespoons of water and stir well. Place the bowl of flax eggs in the fridge for a minimum of 15 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: almond flour, 1-to-1 Baking Flour, coconut sugar, cacao powder, baking powder and baking soda.

  4. In another bowl mix wet ingredients (except coconut oil): flax eggs, applesauce, apple cider vinegar, and 20 tablespoons of almond milk.


  5. Now add wet ingredients + 6 tablespoons coconut oil to the dry ingredients bowl and mix with a stand or hand mixer for about 5 minutes until combined. Adjust sweetness if necessary.

    If the mixture is too thick add another 1-2 tablespoons of milk.

  6. Divide batter evenly between your 2 cake tins and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Bake for approx. 40-45 minutes.

  7. Remove from the oven and let it cool down completely.

  8. Once cooled, add a layer of apricot jam in between the layers.

Chocolate and coconut cream icing

  1. Melt the coconut oil and chocolate in a medium pot over low heat. Stir until smooth. Let it cool down a bit.

  2. Add coconut cream, melted chocolate, cacao powder, and agave to the blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If the mixture is too thick to blend add 1-2 tablespoons warm full-fat coconut milk and mix again until smooth and silky.

  3. With an icing spatula, spread the icing evenly, in between the layers (on top of apricot jam) and all over the cake. 

  4. Decorate with blueberries and edible flowers.

  • Hey! I’d love to make this cake but I have a question. In instruction number 4, you say to mix wet ingredients together and go on to list melted chocolate but I don’t see melted chocolate in the list of ingredients for the actual cake part. How much melted chocolate should be in the cake mix? Thank you so much πŸ™‚

    • Hi, Billie! So sorry for the late reply, I just got back from a hiking trip. Yes, you are right. I updated the recipe. List of ingredients is correct, there is no melted chocolate. Thanks for letting me know! I hope you’ll like it. Have a lovely evening, Nensi
