cake

180g almond meal/or any nut, seed meal

100g potato/tapioca starch

80g raw sugar/maple syrup/coconut sugar/rice malt syrup

3 tsp baking powder (1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, 2 tsp cream of tartar)

pinch pink himalayan salt

150g walnuts, lightly toasted

200g pitted fresh medjool dates*

2 oranges, zest and juice

4 eggs/4 flax eggs

130g ghee/purified coconut oil, melted

frosting

100g ghee/purified coconut oil

80g pitted fresh medjool dates*

2 oranges, zest and juice

60ml maple syrup

topping

60-80g walnuts, lightly toasted

To make the cake preheat oven to 150 degrees celsius/302 fahrenhei and prepare a square baking tin by lightly greasing and lining with non-bleached baking paper.

In a large mixing bowl add all the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour into prepared container and bake for 50-60 minutes or until cooked through. Remove and allow to cool in tin before removing.

To make the frosting place all the ingredients into a high-speed blender. Blend until very smooth. Pour over the top of the cooled cake and scatter with walnuts. Serve with coconut yoghurt and edible flowers. Enjoy!

*fresh medjool dates are yet to be rated by the Monash FODMAP app. I have found that 1-2 dates per sitting does not have an adverse affect on me. If you personal find that fresh medjool dates are an issue for you than replace them with 100-120g for the cake and 30-40g for the frosting of either raw sugar/maple syrup/rice malt syrup/coconut sugar.
