CREAM CHEESE FROSTING & STRAWBERRY JAM LAYER CAKE

MOIST & FLUFFY 1 BOWL CAKE

This cake recipe is my favorite yet! It’s moist on the inside, with a sweet and tangy cream cheese, jam filling sandwiched in between. I used my 1 bowl layer cake recipe and layered it with a delicious cream cheese frosting and strawberry jam!

INGREDIENTS

  • 250ml plant milk (1 cup)
  • 160g almond butter (1/2 cup)
  • 260g agave syrup (1 cup)
  • 70g coconut oil (1/4 cup)
  • 85g coconut sugar (1/2 cup)
  • 380g ground almonds (4 cups)
  • 260g buckwheat flour (2 cups 2 tbsp)

TOPPINGS

  • 250ml plant milk (1 cup)
  • 160g almond butter (1/2 cup)
  • 260g agave syrup (1 cup)
  • 70g coconut oil (1/4 cup)
  • 85g coconut sugar (1/2 cup)
  • 380g ground almonds (4 cups)
  • 260g buckwheat flour (2 cups 2 tbsp)

METHOD

  • Preheat then oven to 180C and Melt the coconut oil, almond butter and heat the milk.
  • Mix together the first 4 ingredients
  • Stir in all remaining ingredients into the wet mixture to form a batter
  • Pour into a baking tray (I used 3 8 inch trays ) and baked for approx 18 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the centre of a cake comes out clean
  • For the icing – mix 150g of vegan cream cheese (@kokodairyfree) with 7 tbsp of powdered sugar, or 4 tbsp of agave. Powdered sugar works better to achieve a fluffy frosting consistency. I used @zusto but you can also use erythritol (found in @hollandandbarrett @totalsweet @amazon). This is a natural, unrefined powdered sugar!
  • For the strawberry chia jam – heat 200g of raspberries and 4-5 tbsp agave syrup (or maple / syrup) and use a fork to crush until softened. Add in 4 tbsp of chia seeds and leave for 5-10 minutes to thicken
  • Once the cake is baked and cooked, Spread jam and cream cheese frosting between the layers, and only cream cheese frosting on the top layer

BLOG

  • I made this cake just before my 25th birthday as I was experimenting with baking delicious, moist and fluffy sponge cakes without raising agents. This one was a real treat!
  • You can try this with any type of frosting you wish – icing, buttercream, nut butter frosting or just plain because it contains the right amount of moisture that it doesn’t taste dry alone!
  • My favourite icing has always been the type that you find on a red velvet cake – cream cheese frosting and so I recreated it for this recipe, which paired perfectly with a homemade berry jam! If you try this, tag me @prispuddings on social media and let me know how it goes!
