EARL GREY CASHEW BUTTER DARK CHOCOLATE MARBLE CAKE

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 and 1/2 cup almond flour

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 cup mashed Japanese sweet potato (about 1 small potato)

  • 4 eggs

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 1/2 cup applesauce

  • 1 cup almond butter

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • 1/4 cup orange juice (from one whole orange)

  • zest from one orange (about 2 tbs)

  • For the Chocolate mix:

    • 1/4 cup cacao powder

    • 1/2 Hu Chocolate Earl Gray Chocolate Bar (melted)

  • For the Frosting

    • 1/2 cup cooked and mashed Japanese sweet potato

    • 3 tbs honey

    • 2 tbs cacao powder

    • 1/3 cup soaked cashews

    • 1/2 cup coconut cream

    • 1/2 orange juiced

Frosting Instructions:

  1. Peel, cut, and boil 1 small Japanese sweet potato. This recipe will work with a regular sweet potato, but the color of the frosting will change. Once the potato is very soft, throw 1/2 cup of the mash into a food processor

  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients and blend until super smooth. It should be very silky and creamy and, most importantly, chocolaty

Cake Instructions:

  1. Prep the sweet potato! Peel it, boil it, and mash it! It should be a little cooled down before you do anything with it

  2. Once it’s mashed and cooled, add the wet ingredients. You can used a blender to make sure everything is super well mixed, smooth and even. I just used a whisk and made sure to break apart any clumps

  3. Add in all the dry ingredients and continue to mix well. Break apart the clumps formed by the flour to ensure an even bake throughout the cake

  4. Split the dough in half! Keep one half to the side and with the other half: melt the 1/2 chocolate bar and add it into the mixture with the cacao powder. Mix this super well to ensure the chocolate flavor is well dispersed

  5. Line a cake pan with parchment paper. Carefully spoon the mixtures into the pan. To create the marble effect: spoon some vanilla cake mix into clumps on bottom, fill in the spaces with the chocolate, and then use a toothpick to swirl one flavor into the other. Repeat this until there is no batter left

  6. Bake at 350 for about an hour. It should rise and become golden brown on top

  7. Let it cool before frosting and decorating. You can do this any way you know how! I used my own frosting recipe here and cut the cake in half first to add a frosting layer in the middle. Then added some on top and to the sides as well. I topped with orange slices, bee pollen, and chocolate shavings

Enjoy with a cup of tea!
