Gluten AND Sugar Free Cake? We got you!

Naked vegan cakeIt’s not easy but we have done it and we think you’ll like it.

And we made it because everyone deserves a treat and nobody should be cakeless, especially on a day of celebration.

About the ingredients

Sweetened with xylitol (which is not suitable for babies or pets – however this means more for you), makes this lower in calories and suitable for those with diabetes as mentioned by Diabetes UK.

The gluten free flour blend includes chickpea and coconut flour, which are super healthy as an added bonus.

Did I mention that it’s a new recipe? It’s a new recipe! Introducing gram flour. Chickpea is a legume, so please take note of this if you have an intolerance to them. They’re super healthy brimming with vitamins and minerals.

Note that if you have a message or decroations are on sugar based which can easily be removed before you tuck in. The topping on these cakes are an optional extra because even though the topping is ‘sugar’ free, it’s higher in fat.  The nutritional information on the label does not include any decoration or message on the cake. All of which can easily be removed.

If you’re new to xylitol you might want to try to restrain yourself from wolfing it all down.  Although xylitol is a completely natural product, excess can have a laxative effect 😐. However, many foods and sweets have it a fairly common ingredient these days especially chewing gum therefore the chances are that you’ve had it already.

Storing your cake

Pop it in the fridge if you have to wait for a few days before you can tuck in (sigh), either in or out of the delivery box until you’re ready to eat.  Eat it ideally at room temperature when it will be extra soft and moist. If you’re having it today or tomorrow it will be fine kept at room temperature.

Once it’s cut, try not put it back into the box it came in as it can make the cake become dry (if this does happen, you can pop a slice into a microwave for a couple of seconds, or put it into an airtight container at room temperature for a few hours).

If you have only eaten a slice or few, cover the cut edges with cling film then place the cake in fridge. You can also place the cake, or slices, in a plastic bag and freeze or refrigerate.

I doubt you will get to store it for that long!
