American Flag Cake – 4th of July

4th of July is just around the corner and if your holiday plans at all revolve around good food with friends (which we suspect they do!) show your enthusiasm for the day with our patriotic cake. This ultimate celebration cake has a deliciously moist vanilla sponge that is topped with a refreshing vanilla coconut yoghurt. To make the American flag we used juicy blueberries and raspberries. Not only do they naturally have the perfect colour, but they also bring amazing flavour. This american flag cake recipe is perfectly suited for Independence Day and is just begging for you to give it a go this week. We hope that this cake makes this year’s celebrations extra special!

method
  • Makes 9-12 slices.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius/350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Place the cashew butter, oat milk, coconut oil and maple syrup in a pan and heat it on a low to medium heat. Whisk to combine as it starts heating up.

  • Take your pan off of the heat and add the ground almonds, oat flour, coconut sugar, vanilla powder and salt. Stir until everything’s combined.

  • Line a tin (24.5 cm x 17 cm) and pour your sponge mixture into it. Even out the surface and bake for 20 minutes.

  • When your cake is done (you can check this but sticking a toothpick into it, and if it comes out clean the cake is baked) leave it to the side to cool completely.

  • When the cake is completely cool spread the coconut yoghurt on top and start creating the flag. In the upper corner on the left side make a rectangle with your blueberries. Cut the raspberries into 4 pieces and make the 7 red lines of the flag.

  • Enjoy the cake immediately or store it in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days (however it’s best fresh).
