    Hi. Can I sub rice malt syrup for coconut syrup or maple syrup? If so, Would I use less maple syrup as it is sweeter?

    Hi Learning Journey. I have also used raw cacao instead of carob powder and it gave a very similar result...

    Fantastic - its a favourite in our house too.

    I find melting the cacao butter in the microwave to be the easiest.

    Hi Steph,

    She LOVED it! It was way out of my comfort zone, and I even thought it tasted pretty good! Thank you sooooo much for sharing the recipe! 

     By the way, how do you recommend melting the nut butter? I wasn't able to do it in my Thermie, and it took more than two minutes (in 15 sec intervals) in the microwave. I had never used it before.

    Hi Erin

    Thanks for your message, I made some amendments to the recipe, those being what you said - yes you were right, it was meant to be carob powder and the  rice malt syrup goes in, step 3. The batter is quite thick, playdough is a good description - super yummy though. 

    With the icing, soaking the cashews in water for an hour or two will help your icing be smoother.

    Let me know how your friend likes the cake. tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Hello Steph,  I have a friend

    Submitted by Erinlj76 on 10. July 2014 - 18:23.

    Hello Steph, 

    I have a friend who is basically allergic to everything, and only eats organic, so I thought this might be a good birthday cake for her (let's hope so!!).

    I just have a few questions, now that I've made the cake.

    In step 5, the instructions said to add the Cacao powder, but it's carob powder that listed in the ingredients for the cake. I hope it was supposed to be carob, because that's what I added at that point! tmrc_emoticons.)

    Also, the recipe calls for adding the rice malt syrup in steps 3 and 5 - I added it in step 3 because I hadn't read ahead. I hope I wasn't supposed to add it twice???

    Lastly, I'm not sure that my "batter" was right... it was more like a playdough consistency, rather than something that would pour out of my mixing bowl. Is that right? And I've used a spring-form cake tin - I hope that works!

    I'll be icing the cake tomorrow night, ready for the festivites on Saturday morning! Any feedback you can provide would be greatly appreciated tmrc_emoticons.)

    Cheers, Erin
