All right, this cake is definitely a winner to bring out for afternoon tea. It has a great texture, beautiful complementary flavours and its beauty is something else! This cake never fails to bring me happiness, and I hope the chocolatey hit and herbs do the same for you.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
195g light buckwheat flour
240g brown rice flour
100g ground almonds
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 tablespoon tapioca flour
1 teaspoon salt
105g stevia
250ml olive oil
190ml coconut oil
250ml plant-based milk
125ml rice malt syrup
30g flaxmeal
100g dark chocolate, chopped into rough pieces
2 rosemary sprigs, leaves picked

Icing

Quantity Ingredient
75g dark chocolate
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon coconut cream

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Put the flours, ground almonds, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cacao, tapioca, salt and stevia in an electric mixer. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes with the whisk attachment and then add the olive oil, coconut oil and milk and mix again. Once everything is combined, add the rice malt syrup, flaxmeal and 125 ml water and mix for 2 minutes or until everything is well combined.
  3. Fold in the chocolate pieces and the rosemary leaves.
  4. Transfer to a well-greased 23 cm ring tin and bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool completely before removing from the tin.
  6. For the icing, put the chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler over low heat. Once melted, remove from the heat and mix in the coconut cream.
  7. Drizzle the icing over the cake and place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes to set. Slice and serve!
