  • 240g spelt flour
  • 50g cacao powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¬Ĺ tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 250ml warm water
  • 100ml light tasting olive oil or avocado oil

For the Topping

  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 80ml maple syrup
  • 1 -2 tbsp hot water*
  • 2 packets Supernature Chocolate Coated Raspberry Raisins roughly chopped

*Add just a little and mix to combine so that the icing is super smooth and glossy. It also thins the ganache out a little bit so that it is easier to pour and spread. 


Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C (350F).
  2. Line an 8 inch square or round tin with baking paper and lightly grease with spray oil.
  3. Sieve together the spelt flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, soda and salt into a large bowl.
  4. Mix together water, coconut sugar, apple cider vinegar, vanilla extract, and olive or avocado oil.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry, and fold together until no flour remains.
  6. Place batter into prepared tin and bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool for 15 minutes in the tin and then transfer to a wire rack to cool fully.
  8. Whisk together the ganache ingredients adding just a touch of hot water at a time to thin it out. Pour ganache over cooled cake and top with chocolate coated raspberry raisins.
  9. Ideally allow the ganache to firm up a little before slicing the cake.
