Coconut Coffee Cake


by Nicky Skinner October 20, 2017

One for grown ups this week!

Despite what the name suggests, there's no caffeine in this cake, just delicious nutty cinnamon swirls.

Perfect along side your coffee or tea, this cake can also be made without the topping for a simple snack, but in my opinion needs the extra layer for depth of flavour.

Time make: 15 mins

Time bake: 25 mins

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3/4 cup melted coconut oil or unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup rice malt syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3 heaped Tbsp of coconut yoghurt or plain greek yoghurt
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup coconut flour

Topping:

  • 1 cup of mixed nuts (e.g. cashews, almonds, walnuts etc.) 
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 3 Tbsp melted coconut oil or unsalted butter

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a 20x20cm slice pan with baking paper.

2. Place all base ingredients into the food processor of blender (in the order listed) and blend until combined.

3. Spoon batter into the prepared tin and press down evenly (the coconut flour will make the batter very thick).

4. Rinse your food processor then place nuts and remaining topping ingredients in processor and blitz until nuts are finely chopped.

5. Spoon topping over the base evenly, then with a knife, swirl the topping into the base slightly (so when you cut your cake you will see the topping spread into the base internally).

6. Bake for 33-35 minutes until topping is golden brown.

Let the cake rest in the pan for 30 mins, then cut and serve.

Best eaten the day it's made, but will keep for 2 days in a cool pantry.

Avocado Brownie Fudge
Avocado Brownie Fudge

What's better than a fudgy brownie with an added vegetable? TWO added vegetables! Well a fruit and a vegetable to be exact, but it's gotta be good for you!

This brownie is very fudge-like, hence the name, and not overly sweet (unless you add more sweetener), but it's delicious and completely guilt free.

With healthy fats and potassium from the avocado, vitamin A and vitamin C from the kumura and an abundance of antioxidants and iron from the cacao, this is truly a nutrient-dense addition to any baking repertoire.
