A wonderful & appetizing flower shaped almond butter, banana & chocolate cake!
This is the best gluten-free and sugar-free cake I have ever made. I didn’t use any flour. I also used coconut blossom sugar. It is a richer, a bit moist and delicious cake with now and then hints of melted dark chocolate chips. Just check it out for yourself!To make it more special, festive and beautiful, I made it in a flower silicon mould.When the cake was ready, I said: Mama, made it,…hearing and singing the song of Jay-Z!! He rocks, you know! The cake was all devoured after 2 days! What is coconut blossom sugar?
Coconut blossom sugar is an alternative sweetener. It is beet sugar-free. It is also called Gula Java Brut. This is 100% unsweetened coconut blossom sugar. It is slighty brown in colour. It has a lower glycemic index than agave. It’s GI index is 35. Agave is 40. It also has a lot of minerals and vitamins. Gula Java is coconut blossom sugar from Java. Harvested by tapers high in the coconut trees, the sweet nectar from the coconut blossom is a cherished resource. Above the log fire, the nectar slowly changes into a delicious, unrefined rich sugar as it is gently stirred in the pan, allowing you to enjoy its sweetness and soft caramel flavour at any time of the day. But it isn’t as sweet as normal sugar. It is great in cobbler’s, in crumbles, in cakes, in desserts, etc. You can also use it in savoury dishes. I made a few recipes with it and I love it. It is also great in unsweetened yoghurt,… it adds a nice crunch. So, I think that I will bake in cups, etc from now on,..it is so easy too because now I have tools like 1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup and 1/4 cup measuring cups. You don’t have to weigh things. It is cool too! I was up for a challenge to combine almond butter with chocolate but not too much,…It had to be healthy too,..so I came up with this. I joined 3 old gluten full recipes together. Print me!
