Hot Summer Night = Daiquiri + Cake

This cake was totally random this weekend. A hot summer night with a few friends and they want girly drinks and snacky foods....... that combo is just not so "hot" ladies. Mixed drinks are loaded with sugar and excess calories that adds up super fast, because those drinks go down so super easy. And let's face it, most gals don't stuff their pretty faces with bikini friendly grub on those nights.

Why not combine the two and have the best of both worlds. The combination was winning, and this cake is so moist and fluffy! It will chill your craving friends down and leave everyone feeling "hot" the next day :)

 
 
Lime Coconut Berry Daiquri Cake
  • 4 whole omega-3 eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup oat flour (ground oats)
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup Stevia in the raw (or 10 drops liquid)
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1 tsp each coconut & rum extract
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries + 1 cup blackberries (or raspberries)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray an 8" cake pan with non-stick cooking oil.

In a large bowl beat the eggs and egg whites until fluffy. Add the milk, lime zest and extract.

Sift together the flours, baking powder, salt and stevia.

Gently mix together the wet and dry ingredients just until moistened. Do not overmix!! Fold 3/4 of the berries into batter.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with remaining berries.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until lightly golden and set in middle (test using a toothpick inserted in centre, it should come out clean). Remove from oven and let cool before slicing.

***This is really yummy served with some sweetened greek yogurt to add a little protein and calcium punch- perfect to round out a fit n fab snack!***
