Well I had to make something special to take to the hospital for my daughter and this little experiment has turned out very well!
For the sponge just mix ...
2 tbsp softened coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp raw honey
Then in separate bowl mix...
12oz almond flour (or ground almonds will do as I used today!)
2 tsp baking powder
Half tsp sea salt
Combine all ingredients with 4oz coconut milk and mix together. Then pour into a lined baking tin. I used a heart shaped tin. Bake at 180c for around 20-25 mins. Allow to cool in tin a few minutes and be careful removing as a bit softer than a regular sponge.
Topping: allow a tin of coconut milk to set in fridge overnight and use the set part as a cream. Cover with berries or sliced strawberries as preferred.
I couldn't resist adding strawberries as needed to be a pink cake today to celebrate my beautiful granddaughter born in time for Valentine's Day!
