I call it breakfast cake but really I eat it any chance I get. It’s very moist and dense and packed with flavor and sweetness. It’s also coconut free and completely aip compliant.
So let’s have our cake and eat it too :).
This cake is divine. Be warned.
aip coconut free apple orange cake
2.5 cups tigernut flour
1/2 cup oil (I used olive oil)
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 cups diced or grated apple
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ream of tartar
3 gelatin eggs
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
10 drops young living orange essential oil OR zest of 1-2 large oranges
Mix all ingredients well and pour into greased 8×8 glass baking dish. Bake until too is dark brown and toothpick comes out clean.
Top with maple frosting for an even sweeter treat!
1 Tbsp gelatin
1 Tbsp cool water
2 Tbsp very hot water
Mix together cool water and gelatin. Then slowly add in hot water while whisking well to incorporate.
Simple Maple Frosting
powdered maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
*if you do not tolerate ghee, use palm shortening
With an electric mixer, mix equal amounts of shortening/ghee and powdered maple syrup. Adjust ration from there. You want a creamy spreadable frosting. Add in vanilla and cinnamon.
