How To Make a Healthy Cake + 5 Favorite Recipes

Your model friend is coming for tea, and now you’re wondering what to you serve her with her cup of tea? Dear friends of models: take note! In this article you will find tips to make healthy, reined sugar free, gluten free cake.

I also share my five favorite recipes for healthy cake. These delicious healthy cakes are perfect to serve your model friendy with her cup of tea next time you have a date with her.

Cake base made with dates and nuts 

Most cake crusts consist of a dough containing gluten and refined sugars. To make your cake crust gluten-free and free of refined sugars you can use Medjool dates and nuts, such as almonds. Mix the dates in a food processor with the almonds and press the ‘dough’ flat in a spring form pan.

Filling: soaked nuts 

For the filling, I often use a base of soaked cashews. I mix them with cooked pumpkin, coconut cream or strawberries for example. I bring this mixture to boil with agar agar; a vegan, natural product that stiffens liquids. I then pour the mixture into the spring form pan on top of the date-almond base. Leave the complete cake in the fridge to stiffen and voila!

Topping: fresh fruit or nuts

Very simple, but effective, healthy and delicious: fresh fruit or nuts! Choose slivered almonds and/or sliced ​​strawberries for instance. The possibilities are endless; what about banana slices on an almond paste cake?
