Ingredients

Scale

Vegan strawberry cake

  • 2 1/2 cups gluten-free oat flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 1/2 cup strawberry coconut yoghurt (I like this one)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup strawberries, diced

Strawberry frosting:

  • 1/2 cup strawberry coconut yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut butter
  • 45 fresh strawberries

Instructions

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the mashed banana, strawberry yoghurt, and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Mix in the oat flour, baking powder and sugar until well combined.
  4. Fold strawberries in last then add to cake pan. Note the batter will be quite thick*.
  5. Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes (I stick a toothpick in and when it comes out clean – it is ready!)
  6. Meanwhile, make the strawberry frosting by blending the yogurt, coconut butter and fresh strawberries in a foood processor or high speed blender. Pour into a bowl and refridgerate.
  7. When the cake is completely cooled, spread over the frosting then top with extra sliced strawberries if desirred. Slice and enjoy!
