This cake was beyond my expectations. Absolutely delicious and with no flour or butterl. I promise, it's possible! Really fluffy, moist and full of flavour and good stuff that will provide your body will nutrition as well as making your tastebuds dance from happiness!
So how is it possible? I found the recipe on this blog, however I switched over a couple of things, so here's how I made it:
  • 400 grams of cooked big white beans.
  • 1 tsp of raw vanilla powder
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 3-4 eggs (depending on size)
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar
Prepare the oven (165 degrees Celsius) and prepare the baking tin by either oiling it, or wrapping baking paper on the inside. Mix the ingredients above with a rod mixer (or food processor) until it's a smooth puré. Then add:
  • 5 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice.
  • 3 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 3 tbsp orange zest
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
Mix once more, and then pour the mixture in the baking tin. I warn you, don't taste the mix or you will eat it all up before it's cooked! Bake in the oven for approximately 30-40 minutes. The cake should be just like an ordinary cake and not be "wet" if you poke it with a stick.
Serve as it is, or as a snack with some fresh fruit/berries and cottage cheese. Or why not with your breakfast. After all, it DOES contain more healthy stuff, than unhealthy ;)
