Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
- 1 teaspoon unrefined coconut oil (to grease the pan)
- 4 large eggs, room temperature
- 1/3 cup raw honey or pure maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 cans (13 ounces each) unsweetened coconut milk, chilled
- pinch of sea salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla paste
- 8 - 10 drops liquid stevia or 1 - 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or raw honey (or to taste)
- 2 teaspoons lime zest
- 1 pint fresh raspberries, rinsed and dried well
- 3 tablespoons raw honey
- 1 pint blueberries, rinsed and dried well
- 2 pints strawberries, hulled and sliced
Here's how to make it:
To make the sponge cake, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs until foamy. Add in the remaining ingredients and whisk until just combined.
Transfer the batter into an 8-inch cake pan that's been lightly greased with coconut oil. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 28 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Cool completely, then remove from the pan and cut into 1-inch cubes.
To make the coconut cream, carefully open the cold coconut milk cans. Using a spoon skim off the thickened top layer into a mixing bowl. Reserve the watery liquid at the bottom to use for another use such as smoothies or lemonade. Add the sea salt, vanilla paste and stevia/maple syrup over the coconut cream into the bowl. Use an electric mixer and beat the coconut cream for 1 to 2 minutes or until it resembles whipped cream. Be careful not to over whisk because it may get runny again. Fold in the fresh lime zest.
To assemble, in a small bowl mash the raspberries together with the honey. Set aside.
For assembly and serving, you'll want to use a trifle bowl or clear glass bowl that will showcase your beautiful layers. To assemble the trifle cake, arrange a layer of sponge cake followed by a handful of fresh berries, 3 to 4 spoonfuls of coconut cream and a generous drizzle of mashed raspberries. Make sure you reserve some fresh strawberries and blueberries to decorate the top.
Repeat the layers, finishing with a final layer of coconut cream.
Decorate your trifle cake with the reserved fresh fruits. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 hours.
