Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
100g lucy bee coconut oil, melted, plus extra for greasing
4 medium eggs, separated
120ml warm water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
120g stevia
130g gluten-free plain flour
2 heaped tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
3 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder

For the topping

Quantity Ingredient
250g creme fraiche
1 tablespoon runny honey
400g fresh raspberries

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease 20cm round springform cake tin and line with baking parchment.
  2. Place the egg yolks in a mixing bowl and beat using an electric whisk. While still whisking, slowly pour in the coconut oil, warm water and vanilla and continue until well combined.
  3. Sift together the stevia, flour, cocoa powder, xanthan gum and 2 tsp of the baking powder. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the egg yolk mixture.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites with the remaining baking powder until stiff. Carefully fold the egg whites into the cake mixture, then pour into the prepared tin. Bake in the oven for 25–30 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean and the sponge springs back to the touch. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Mix the crème fraîche with the honey and spread over the top of the cooled cake, then decorate with the raspberries.
