Oil-Free, Dairy-free, (but still) Fluffy and Delicious Cake

Alt Text

Hello hello! How are you?

Today I’m sharing with you one of the cake recipes that I make often! For birthdays, for Sunday baking, for PMS cravings – actually, are PreMS, MS and PostMS around here, ahahah.

What is great about it? It’s oil-free, dairy-free and takes less sugar than most recipes. I not only don’t eat animal-derived products, but I also try to have a healthy diet. However, I have a sweet tooth and like eat cakes and desserts – and won’t refrain from eating them. So, my solution was to adjust recipes making them into a healthier version. Who’s with me on this?

Without further ado, here it goes!

Ingredients:

  • 1,5 cup (The cup that I use takes 200 ml) of warm water
  • 1 cup of flour (any really. Sometimes I use white flour, wholewheat, cassava, rice, or mix of a couple of them, or a bit of all of them. As you can see, it’s versatile)
  • 1 cup of oat
  • 1 cup of shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1 tsp/tbsp of cinnamon (it’s delicious on its own, but to change a bit you can add cinnamon, and the amount is up to you, it’s up to your liking of having the cake more or less cinnamony)

Preparation:

  1. Mix dry ingredients.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.
  3. Take it to the oven for around 30 minutes at 180ºC.

Quite easy, right?

Try this recipe out, leave a comment and let me know if you like it and if you have the same worries about eating healthy, if you do something about it… I hope you like it as much as we do here at home! It’s always a success!

Have a great week! *
