Strawberry & Vanilla Cake with a Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese FrostingGrain-Free, Gluten-Free, Corn-Free & Lactose-Free

Ingredients:

  • 192 grams (2 cups) almond flour
  • 4 tablespoons (32 grams) coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (112 grams) coconut oil, melted
  • 6 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons (120 grams) honey
  • 2.5 tablespoon vanilla extract (learn how to make your own here!)
  • 4 tablespoons lactose-free yogurt (or greek yogurt, or soy/coconut for dairy free)
  • 180 grams strawberries, diced
  • 2 teaspoon coconut flour

Lactose-Free Greek Yogurt & Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 175g lactose-free spreadable cream cheese (or soy/other for dairy free)
  • ½ cup Lactose-Free yogurt (or greek yogurt, or soy/coconut for dairy free)
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 tablespoons icing sugar

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 175°C. Line two cake tins with baking paper.
  • In a bowl, mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, oil, honey, yogurt and vanilla.
  • Create a well in the dry mix and add the wet mix and stir gently until just combined.
  • In a bag (or a bowl, I find a freezer bag easiest), mix 2 teaspoons of coconut flour with the strawberries, toss/stir to cat. Fold in the strawberries to mixture lightly.
  • Divide the batter evenly into the cake tins and bake for 20- 25 minutes minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Let the cake cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely
  • For the frosting, mix together cream cheese, yogurt, vanilla and icing sugar with beaters or a food processor until mixed. Place the frosting back into the fridge to firm up a bit whilst your cake cools on the wire rack.
  • When your cake is cool, spread the frosting in the middle and top of the cake. Top with strawberries and coconut if like and enjoy!
