What you need:
- Vitamix or a similar high-performance blender
- Wholemeal Flour (330g = 2 1/2 cups)
- Unsweetened Organic Cacao Powder (40g = 1/3 cup)
- Baking Soda (1/2 teaspoon)
- Sea Salt (1/2 teaspoon)
- 1/2 Organic Orange
- 1/2 Organic Lemon
- Organic Medjool Dates (150g = 2/3 cup)
- Organic Coconut Oil (1 tablespoon)
- Purified Water (3 cups) (We clean our water with a water distiller)
HOW TO MAKE THIS CAKE:
Prep time: approx 5 minutes; Backing time: 25minutes 175°C (=350°F)
- Put the wholemeal flour, cocoa powder, sea salt, baking soda into a mixing bowl
- Put the Medjool dates, water, coconut oil, 1/2 orange, juice of 1/2 lemon into your high-performance blender for 35 seconds
- Pour the date mixture into the mixing bowl
- Stir together all ingredients
5. Grate orange peel of 1/2 orange into the cake
6. Pour the liquid cake mass into a baking tin. I like to put a baking paper into the Teflon baking tin before I pour in the liquid cake mass. Just because of the Teflon (it´s not so healthy), you don´t have to do this.
7. Bake the cake at 175°C = 350°F for 25 minutes
After 25 minutes it should look similar to this cake. Check with a toothpick or a fork if it´s evenly baked on the inside.
It´s toddler approved! Your entire family will love this cake!
If you are not used to eating sugarfree, you can use more Medjool dates for a sweeter taste.
Instead of the Cocoa Powder, you can also use Carob Powder. Carob Powder doesn´t contain caffeine, while the Cocoa Powder does. You can especially consider this if you want to give this cake to your toddler. We tried both variations and loved both.
