I love December, the year end with all the awesome food creations and yummy cakes.
Since I started my journey towards healthy eating – it’s become quite a challenge though. Finding gluten free, dairy free and sugar free desserts can be quite a challenge – as I had to say goodbye to all the traditional Hungarian winter treats – including ones with poppy-seeds.
I was so happy when my mum found this recipe and it ended up one of the quickest and tastiest festive cakes for me – and to be honest for my parents as well. Hope you will enjoy it just as much as we did 😉
- 50g sultanas
- 200ml water
- 4 organic free-range eggs
- 2 tsp agave syrup
- 3 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
- 200g ground poppyseed
- 100g shredded coconut
- 2 medium sized organic apples
Wash the sultanas and soak them in the water.
Beat the egg-whites with a drop of lemon juice and the yolks with the xylitol and agave syrup. Add the coconut oil, poppy-seeds, shredded coconut, sultanas and water to the egg yolks. Mix them all thoroughly and then slowly start to blend them with a hand mixer and start to add the beaten egg-whites to the mixture.
Pour half the mixture into a baking tray – the size should be around 230cm x 180cm (line the tin with baking paper or coconut oil first). Shred the 2 apples evenly and then pour over the remaining of the dough.
Bake it for 20 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius and then leave it in the oven for another 10 minutes on 150 degrees – check with a fork – once it doesn’t stick – it’s done. 🙂
Let it cool and enjoy with your favourite tea! x
