This loaf style cake is super quick to make. No fancy mixers required, just bowls and utensils.

 

Making the Cake

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celcius. Line a round tin or a loaf tin with baking paper.

Add baking soda, cacao powder and stevia powder to a large mixing bowl and combine, using a spoon to squash any lumps in the baking soda. Add almond meal and coconut flour and stir to combine dry ingredients thoroughly. In a separate bowl whisk eggs, then add coconut milk and water and whisk again.

Add the grated pear to the dry mixture and stir through. Then add the egg mixture and combine to form a thick batter. Tip the batter into the lined loaf tin then place in the preheated oven. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until firm to touch and bounces back when pressed.

 

Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Then remove from the tin and let cool on a wire rack. Garnish with berries if desired.

 

* Tip: This cake works with 1/3 cup - 1/2 cup of sugar (which is 1/2 - 3/4 cup of 'fluffier' sugars such as coconut, rapdura or brown sugar). Your packet of stevia powder will explain how much stevia powder is equal to sugar. 

 

 

More about Almond Meal

Almond flour is made by grinding blanched almonds to a meal (without the skin). Almond meal is ground raw almonds (with the skin). Almond flour is lower in fibre than almond meal and gives a lighter product with baking. But either can be used. Almond meal can be made at home if you have a blender or grinder. 1 cup of almonds will make about 1 1/4 - 1 1/3 cup of almond meal.
