Preparation

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
    Make sure to grease your cake pan (20 cm max diameter)
    In a mixing bowl combine all the dry ingredients: almond flour, bicarb of soda, SugarFree Natura sweetener & cacao powder – mix well
    Now in a food processor (or a blender if you don’t have one) mix all the wet ingredients: avos, egg replacer, coconut yoghurt, coconut cream, vanilla essence, almond milk and lemon zest – blend until smooth
    Fold wet mixture into the flour mix and blend thoroughly – add a handful of cacao chips
    Spread mixture into cake pan
    Bake for 40 minutes
    Just before removing check middle of the cake to see if cooked through – if still moist at the bottom, don’t worry it will set further in the freezer
    Remove cake pan round and allow to cool (can be put in freezer to cool quicker)
  • Prepare icing
  • Mix all icing ingredients in food processor until smoothWhen cake has cooled, smear icing on top of cake
    Garnish and put back in the freezer until serving
    (The almonds may go soft after a few hours – so serve soon after cake has set in freezer)
