1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

65 g (2½ oz/½ cup) coconut flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

100 g (3½ oz/1 cup) almond meal

35 g (1¼ oz/½ cup) shredded coconut

 

Kakadu jam

170 g (6 oz) raspberries, fresh or frozen and defrosted

50 g (1¾ oz/¼ cup) coconut sugar

1 tablespoon Kakadu plum (salty plum) powder, or use the zest of 1 orange

45 g (1½ oz/¼ cup) chia seeds

2 tablespoons coconut water

 

Cacao frosting

40 g (1½ oz/¼ cup) coconut oil

55 g (2 oz/½ cup) cacao powder

60 ml (2 fl oz/¼ cup) coconut cream

 

 

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Lightly grease a 30 x 12 x 10 cm (12 x 4½ x 4 inch) loaf (bar) tin and line it with baking paper, leaving the sides overhanging.

 

Use an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment to whisk the eggs and honey for 5 minutes or until well combined. Add the coconut oil and vanilla bean paste and whisk for another 2–3 minutes until well combined.

 

Combine the coconut flour, baking powder and almond meal in a separate bowl. Gently fold into the egg mixture until just combined, then spoon into the prepared tin and bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin.

 

Meanwhile, to make the jam, combine the ingredients
in a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes or until set.

 

To make cacao frosting, put the coconut oil in a frying pan with 60 ml (2 fl oz/¼ cup) of water and cook over low heat until the oil melts. Add the cacao powder and coconut cream and stir for 2 minutes or until combined. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

 

Transfer the cake to a serving plate. Spread with jam and drizzle with the frosting. Scatter with shredded coconut.
