Makes a 20cm cake ( approx. 8 servings)
1 1/4 cup gluten-free flour
1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
1/2 tsp gluten-free bicarbonate of soda
150g coconut oil, softened ( minus 1 tbsp for greasing)
1 pear or 2 if small
1/2 cup mixed berries
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla powder
2 tbsp honey
2 organic eggs
1 tbsp coconut sugar
Slice pear, sprinkle with vanilla powder, coconut sugar and baobab powder and let it rest until your cake mix is ready. Preheat oven to 170C and grease a 20cm round cake pan with coconut oil.
Sift together flour, baking powder and bicarbonate soda.
In a separate bowl, beat eggs with coconut oil, honey and a pinch of salt.
Mix dry and wet ingredients until well combined.
Pour cake batter into prepared tin and top with berries and pear.
Bake for 25-35 minutes (An inserted skewer should come out clean when the cake is ready).
