Coconut Coffee Cake

Coconut Coffee Cake

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.

Lolly Cake
Lolly Cake

August 27, 2018

I don't know about you, but lolly cake was always the slice I gravitated towards as a kid and teen, but when I became more health conscious and realised that malt biscuits, condensed milk and Eskimo lollies were less than nourishing, I tried to make better choices. But the other day I decided nobody should have to miss out and decided to healthify it.

Like the majority of my recipes, they are many easy substitutions such as a different nut butter, nut or dried fruit. It's adaptable to your own tastes and I've tried it with chopped dates, dried blueberries and walnuts and it was fabulous!
