- 1 cup gluten free oat flour
- 1/2 cup+2 tbsp super fine white rice flour [or] brown rice flour
- 1/4 cup arrowroot starch
- 1/4 cup tapioca starch
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1.5 cups organic raw sugar
- 1 cup + 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup banana puree
- 1 cups almond milk
- 2 tsp white vinegar
- 1/2 cup rice bran oil/coconut oil melted
- 1 tsp concentrated vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp fresh ground coffee, dissolved in 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tsp xanthan [or] guar gum [OPTIONAL]
- 1 tbsp carob powder [OPTIONAL]
- 18 ounces strawberries
- 1 cup full fat coconut cream
- 7 ounces vegan gluten free chocolate
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1.5 tbsp organic raw sugar [OPTIONAL]
- Preheat oven 350 Fahrenheit
- Sift all the dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix them really well. Transfer to a plate
- In a the same bowl, add all the wet ingredients except oil and beat until foamy/frothy.
- Add the dry ingredients 1 cup a time while mixing with a hand-held mixer. Once you have added all the dry ingredients, the batter will resemble a thick pancake batter.
- Now, add oil and keep mixing for a minute.
- Divide batter evenly between your 2 cake pans lined with each parchment paper or coated with coconut oil.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. I baked in middle-tier of the oven.
- Let it stand for ten minutes, flip both the pans and let it cool for couple of hours.
- Whilst cake is cooling, prepare the ganache. Heat coconut cream until bubbles start to appear around the edges , turn off heat, add chopped chocolate, salt and let it sit for 10 mins. After 10 minute mark, stir and that’s it. Ganache is ready. Let it cool as well
- Assembly is super simple. Over one of the tiers, apply ganache, top with strawberries and flip the other tier and cover with ganache.
