Ingredients
Dry cake ingredients:
  • 3 cups spelled fluor
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 5 Tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 cup sugar (coconut or muscovado)
Wet ingredients for the cake:
  • 3/4 cup oil of your choice (I used melted coconut oil)
  • 2 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 5 flax eggs *
  • 1/2 tsp apple vinegar
  • 1 tsp food coloring
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
"Buttercream"
  • 3 cups raw cashew nuts
  • 1 1/3 cup full fat coconut milk refrigerate overnight
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 190 ° C. Put the spelt and rice flour in a bowl, preferably a large bowl, and mix well, add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix again making sure everything has been well integrated. In a separate bowl beat the wet ingredients, pour the liquid mixture in the bowl with the dry ones. Mix well ensuring that no lumps remain. Pour the mixture in 2 molds of 20cm diameter with parchment paper ** and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the cake separates from the edges of the mold and is no moist inside, make sure it does not dry too much. Let cool a few minutes, unmold and put an hour in the refrigerator before cutting the cake.
Butter cream
  1. Process the caju nuts until obtaining almost caju butter, it is not necessary to reach this point. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until you get a thick cream, it should not be liquid, leave the cream in a bowl in a cool place, the refrigerator is not necessary.
  2. Cut each of the cakes in half, make sure the layers are even without irregularities, put one layer of cake and one layer of cream on top of the other, and then cover the cake with the remaining cream, to help make the cream smooth you can use the back of a spoon or a spatula soaked in water, remove the excess cream and re-soak. Cool the cake, enjoy and share!
