This recipe may not taste as sweet as those containing sugar. We think it’s a great way to retrain your taste buds to enjoy a less sweet taste. If you prefer more sweetness, however, experiment with adding a little stevia to taste to the mixture.

HFG tip

To make date syrup: Combine equal quantities of dates and water in a pot and bring to the boil. Simmer gently for 5 minutes then cool. When cool, place in a blender or processor and purée until smooth. Use in place of sugar or syrup in roughly similar weights. This syrup can be stored in the fridge or freezer.

    Hi Nikki
    We made this cake but found it very wet. Had to bake for an extra hour. Did you mean us to squeeze juice out of beetroot? Lyn

      Hi Carolyn
      I think if you have a very juicy beetroot that might be a good idea. It’s not something we’ve had to do in testing but sometimes ingredients vary, so give varying results. I’ve also found some coconut flour variations affect the consistency of baking. If the mixture seems a bit wet before baking, you could add a little more ground almonds and coconut flour.

      Warm regards
