Baked for us by Emilia, a nutrition student specialising in plant-based nutrition, this is an absolutely delicious cake! It's perfect for those who want to avoid the sugar overload which usually comes with Easter as it only contains a small amount of coconut syrup, dried apricots and dates and it's also got a fabulous spicy freshness to it.
250 g white self raising flour
150 g coconut flour
2 tsp vanilla powder
1 tbsp turmeric powder
100 g soaked raisins
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
4 tbsp coconut syrop ( golden syrup/ agave syrop )
4 tbsp avocado oil ( coconut oil/ any other good quality oil )
250 g organic soaked dried apricots
1 tbsp fresh turmeric
3 tbsp baobab powder
SIMNEL ALMOND BALLS
40 g almond paste
20 g coconut flour
4 tbsp coconut syrup
Do not worry than the turmeric will add a strong flavour. It doesn't but does contribute to an interesting texture and colour. It has some amazing health properties and I like to add it it to pretty much everything I make.
Serve when cold with ice-cream, double cream or with your favourite tea. Enjoy!
