  • ½ Tsp Pink Salt
  • 4 Chia Seed Eggs 
  • 100g Honey/Agave
  • 1 Can of Full Fat Coconut Milk
  • 4 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 Strong Espressos 



  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C and grease your cake tins.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the ground almonds, tapioca flour, baking powder and pink together
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, honey, coconut milk, oil and cold espressos.
  4. Pour this wet mixture into the bowl with the dry mixture and mix until smooth. 
  5. Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking dish and spread evenly with a rubber spatula. 
  6. Bake on the centre rack for 28 to 35 minutes or until cake tests clean when poked in the centre.

  8. Carefully take the coconut milk out of the fridge and carefully open the cans.
  9. Scoop out the cream which has separated and floated to the top. Save or discard the water in the bottom.
  10. Combine all the frosting ingredients together. 
  11. Using an electric hand mixer, mix ingredients together on a high-speed setting for about 2 minutes, until creme becomes a thick consistency, like whipped cream.
  12. Store in the fridge until the cake is baked and cooled. 
  13. Assemble and decorate with walnuts!
