Dark Chocolate Forest Fruit Cake

Prep Time: 10M
Cooking Time: 35M
Serves: 6

There's more where this came from!


  1. 1 1/2 cup oat flour
  2. 1/4 cup starch (I used potato starch)
  3. 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  4. 1 cup apple puree (2 cored apples blended)
  5. 1/2 cup berry juice (i.e cranberry juice)*
  6. 1/2 tsp pure stevia
  7. 1 heaped cup of mixed frozen berries- for top (use frozen so the fruit does not burn)


Serves 4 - 6.


  • Blend the apples until smooth, add the stevia and cocoa powder. Mix through the flour and starch and lastly the juice to form a smooth thick batter.
  • Spoon the batter into a 8″ cake tin and roughly smooth the top. Pile the frozen berries on top of the batter and lightly press.
  • Bake at 180C for approx 35 minutes- check the cake after 20 minutes and if the top is already golden but centre still requires extra time, loosely cover for the final 15 minutes or so.
  • Serve hot or cold, with custard or cream (vegan of course)!
  • *Note: I used apple juice the first time it is tasted slightly too appley for my taste but was still fine. I would suggest using a berry juice to compliment the berries on top.
