Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

Wet ingredients:

Frosting

Instructions

  1. Mix the ground chia seeds and water with a whisk, set aside for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, put all dry ingredients in a big bowl and stir until there are no clumps


  2. Add all wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until the mixture is combined


  3. Line a mold with parchment paper or grease it with a little bit of coconut oil. My mold measures 8 x 4 x 2.5 inches


  4. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 40 minutes (+/- 10 minutes). The cake is ready when a toothpick comes out almost clean (don't overcook it). Let it cool


  5. Put the Erythritol in your food processor or coffee grinder and blend until it's very fine like icing sugar. Use a whisk to mix it in a small bowl with the coconut milk and lime/lemon juice. If the frosting is too thick add a few drops of lime/lemon juice. If it's too thin add more of the Erythritol. Put the frosting on the cake (once it's cool) and put the cake in the fridge until the frosting is hard. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You can use a different gluten free flour blend, however, if you sub coconut flour for a different flour then you need to increase the amount of flour. Coconut flour is very absorbent, that's why you would have to use at least 1/2 a cup of a different flour instead of coconut flour. My gluten free flour blend made the cake fluffy and resulted in a great texture and I totally recommend it.
