  • 1 cup of maskal teff flour
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 2 flax “eggs”
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (canned)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil melted (for a moist cake and it works without the oil as well)
  • 1/3 of a cup of raw cacao powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or paste
  • 1/2 cup soaked pitted dates (about 6-7 large ones)
  • 1/2 cup of agave syrup
  • 20 drops of stevia extract (optional for more sweetness) . .


  1. Preheat oven to 360˚F.
  2. Making flax eggs by combining 2 tbsp of flax meal and 5 tbsp of water.
  3. Let this sit for 10 min.
  4. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, recommend sieving them through a colander.
  5. Then add all wet ingredients into a high-speed blender, including flax egg and soaked dates.
  6. Blend until smooth and warm.
  7. Add wet mixture to the bowl with dry ingredients, mix well with a whisk or fork.
  8. Line an 8-inch cake tin with parchment paper, Pour cake batter in, even out the surface and bake for 40 mins.Take it out in 37 min for extra moist cake.
  9. Remove from tin and let cool for 15 min or longer.
  10. FROSTING (optional) Once cool, slice cake horizontally and ice with chocolate ganache, but I didn’t end up doing this for the photo.
  11. After it has cooled down, make sure it’s not warm add whatever frosting you may want.
  12. For this recipe, I blended 2 cups of soaked cashews with 2 tbsp of water(or more if needed), 30 drops of stevia, and 1 cup of chopped strawberries. blend until completely smooth, just let this sit overnight but worth the extra effort.
  13. Top this cake with any kind of berries, frosting, and chocolate.
