This recipe is in great thanks to The Great British Baking Show for giving me a wonderful cake recipe that does not need any leavening agents like baking powder and my very own Deceptive Delights™ skinny pudding recipe. I love cake and I love pudding. I am not a big fan of icing but cake is best with a touch of something icing like to marry that spongy and moist cake, creating the most incredible combo.
What we don’t want after cake is to have that incredible combo become the cliche of once on the lips forever on the hips. How about once on the lips, helps keep our great hips.
Enjoy this recipe and I hope you make amazing versions with different flavors.
Almond Flour – Kirkland Signature Blanched Almond Flour – Costco
Tapioca Starch – Bob’s Red Mill
Free-range organic (grub-fed if possible) eggs or Duck eggs – local natural market or Trader Joes
Maple Syrup – Costco
Ground Vanilla – (not extract) Amazon
Pink Salt – Costco
8.5 oz dried Cashew pieces soaked 4 hrs and drained – Trader Joes
1/2 cup Maple Syrup – Costco
1/4 cup Lemon Juice – Santa Cruz – Amazon or Natural Market
3/4 cup Coconut Oil – Not extra Virgin – Trader Joes
1 tsp Ground Vanilla – (not extract) Amazon
1/2 tsp Pink Salt – Costco
Cake – Mix 3 cups Almond Flour with 1 1/2 cups Tapioca Starch, ground vanilla and salt until well combined. Add in 4 egg yolks, saving the whites to make mix into stiff peaks. Add in maple syrup and mix until batter is combined.
Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form and gently fold into cake batter trying to keep as much lightness and air as possible. Pour combined mixture onto a flat sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Bake on 375º for about 20 min. Remove from the oven and cool.
Pudding – Combine all ingredients except coconut oil into a strong blender and blend until smooth and light. Add in melted but not too hot coconut oil and blend again until combined. Pour into a container and chill in the fridge until it is as firm as it will get.
If your pudding is set firm, you can make a layer cake. If your pudding is set just soft, create layers of cake and pudding in a cup or glass and top w/ fresh fruit or leave plain.
