Gluten-free Tahini Honey Cake


1 ¼ cup almond flour
½ tsp baking soda
Good pinch sea salt
1 tsp Bodhi LuminosiTEA - turmeric, ginger & collagen powder (optional)
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 organic eggs
1/3 cup raw honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup tahini (room temperature with oils mixed through)
Topping:
100g Coconut cream (only use the top layer in the can)
1 heap tsp raw honey
½ tsp vanilla extract


Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 170*C. Greaze and line a 8inch cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Mix almond flour, LuminosiTEA (optional), baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk eggs and mix through coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, vanilla and tahini.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry and gently combine.
  5. Pour into your cake tin and bake for 25-28 minutes, until a skewer comes out cleanly from the centre.
  6. To make the topping combine coconut cream, honey and vanilla with a hand beater until it is light and fluffy. Keep it in the fridge until you are ready to spread it on your cake. A tip when separating your coconut cream, put the can in the fridge for an hour and then only scoop the top part out of the can.
  7. Allow your cake to cool completely before adding the topping.
  8. Decorate with fresh flowers, honeycomb, or with some chopped toasted or honey roasted almonds.

TEA PAIRING: This gorgeous cake pairs beautifully with our LuminosiTEA latte powder or Bodhi Organic ZesTEA.
