Since the red berries have made their first appearence on the market in spring, I baked this simple cake on almost every weekend for various occasions or just for ourselves.
3 large sized eggs
- Preheat your convection oven to 160C/320F (or if your oven doesn’t have the convection function, preheat it to 180C/356F). Line the bottom of the baking form with baking sheet, cover the sides of the form with coconut oil and sprinkle on some rice flour.
- At first, prepare the sponge cake. Devide the eggs, and whisk the egg yolks with the xylitol and vanilla extract until frothy and white. Add a oinch of salt to the egg whites and beat them until a firm foam forms (sholdn’t fall out of the dish when turned upside down).
- Mix the rice and almond flours.
- Gently layer the egg white foam over the egg yolks, pour the flour mix over all this and cautiously whisk this mixture with movements aiming from the bottom of the dish to the top until there are (almost) no separate white and yellow stripes.
- Pour the dough in the cake form, smooth the top to be even and put into the oven. Turn the oven to 160C/320F, not convection mode and bake until a needle comes out clean, approx. 20 minutes. Do not open the door of the oven in the first 10 minutes or your cake will fall in on itself.
- While the sponge cake is in the oven, you have time to prepare the vanilla cream. Start heating the coconut oil with approx. 100 ml rice milk over medium heat. Mix in the stevia powder, vanilla seeds and tapioca starch into the remaining rice milk and whish until smooth.
- Once the rice milk is hot, but not boiling, mix in the cold mixture and whish continuously until it almost starts to boil and gets really thick (be patient).
- Now set aside both the cake that just came out of the oven and the vanilla cream as well, and wait until cool. This cream is thick enough to stand on its own on top of a cake, once cooled enough. Now layer fruit on top and you’re ready to serve. Enjoy!
