The Goodness Cake – Gluten Free Dairy Free Cake
Named after all the incredible goodness that it contains. Ground nuts, seeds, and organic sultanas, along with hints of ginger and cinnamon spice, it’s my FAVOURITE comfort cake for a cold wintry day, or for taking to a friends house for morning tea.
Everyone always comments on how delicious this cake is, and it certainly add that wow factor when you tell them it contains no dairy, wheat, gluten, refined sugars, or flours.
Just pure plant goodness!
1 1/2 ground almonds (almond meal)
1 cup ground sunflower seeds
1/2 cup of oil (coconut or olive)
1/2 cup coconut sugar 1 tbsp honey
2 large free range eggs (beaten)
1/2 cup organic sultanas
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 180 C.
Grind the sunflower seeds and almonds to a fine flour. (I use the NutriBullet or the Kambrook Bliz2go – so quick and easy). Mix with the honey, eggs, coconut sugar and spices. Once mixed well, add the walnuts and sultanas and stir to combine.
The mixture will be quite liquid, thesis normal, so line a cake tin and fill with the mixture. Bake in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes. The cake will be firm on the outside but slightly gooey in the middle still, which helps it stay moist when it cools.
