Makes 8-10 slices

Ingredients:

 

Dry-

 

1 cup white rice flour  

 

3/4 cup corn starch 

 

3/4 cup gf oat flour

 

1 1/4 teaspoon xantham gum 

 

1/2 teaspoon himalayan salt

 

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

 

1 tablespoon lemon zest


1 1/2 cups golden coconut sugar

 

Wet- 

 

Flax Egg:

 

4 tablespoons flax seed meal

 

10 tablespoons hot water 


(mix flax meal with water & allow to rest for 10 mins before using)

 

-----

 

1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons melted & cooled coconut oil 

 

1/4 cup coconut milk 

 

2/4 cups unsweetened vanilla oat milk

 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

1 teaspoon almond extract

 

1 teaspoon lemon extract

 

2 teaspoons corn starch

 

Maple Frosting-

 

1 package plain vegan cream "cheese"

 

1 tablespoon vegan butter


4 tablespoons maple syrup

 

1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

 

1/4 cup golden coconut sugar, powdered 

 

2 teaspoons lemon zest

 

 

How-To:

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9" springform pan ( like this one ) with coconut oil or vegan butter...dust the surface with white rice flour. Set aside.

 

In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients till well incorporated. Set aside.

 


In a separate, medium bowl, combine prepared flax egg, and all other wet ingredients...mixing well. The liquid mixture may separate a bit, but don't worry about this.

 


Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and combine with a spatula until well incorporated. Once both mixtures are evenly combined, add the cake batter to your prepared/greased cake pan and bake for 45-50 minutes. 

 


Once the cake is finished baking, allow it to cool for at least 30 minutes (& try to resit eating it straight out of the oven!). While the cake is cooling, prepare your maple frosting.

 


Add all frosting* ingredients to a high-powered food mixer and whip at high-speed for 1 minute or until smooth and creamy. Adjust flavors as needed. Place in the fridge till you're ready to spread the frosting on the cake.

 

ASSEMBLY:


Frost the top of your cooled cake and cover with fruits of your choice! Strawberries, kiwis, and blueberries were particularly delicious! Slice and serve. 

 

Enjoy!* ♡🍴

 

 

* frosting consistency is a little bit on the looser side, but not as loose as a glaze - you may adjust thickness by adding more cream "cheese"

 

* for best results, cover and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
