Serves: 1 cake
For the cake:
For the topping:
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup fruit juice
  • 1 ½ cups mixed berries, or any desired fruit
  1. Grease Flan Pan (see not for cupcake option). Cover the center with a circle of wax paper. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the coconut oil and sugar. Add eggs, almond milk, and vanilla. Beat well.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the large mixing bowl, and beat to combine.
  4. Bake 25 minutes, until cake is golden brown and appears set. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from pan onto a serving dish and cool completely.
  5. While cake is baking, combine sugar, cornstarch, and fruit juice in a 1 quart sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. It will turn from cloudy to clear. Cool 5 minutes.
  6. Arrange fruit on top of cooled cake. Pour topping over fruit.
If you don’t have a Flan Pan, this recipe makes beautiful cupcakes. It will make 12-14 standard sized cupcakes.
