Sweet potato cake with orange topping (gluten free, vegan)

This is a different version of my chocolate sweet potato cake. The difference is in using raw vegetable instead of baked. The consistency of baked cake is rather more like carrot cake’s.




  • 20g gold linseeds (flaxseeds)
  • 20g chiaseeds
  • 200g coconut sugar
  • 50g extra virgin coconut oil
  • 20g golden rum
  • 100g + 200g plant milk (OAT)
  • 400g raw sweet potato
  • 200g orange (peeled)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 100g ground buckwheat
  • 100g ground millet flakes
  • 70g ground gluten free oat flakes
  • 30g potato starch
  • 3 heaped teaspoons gluten free baking powder


  • 200g dried apricots (sulphur free)
  • 60g shredded coconut butter*
  • 100g freshly squeezed orange juice

coconut butter* – do it yourself very easy. Put shreded coconut in a high-speed blender and process untill smooth. Don’t overheat your butter. If temperature raises to much let it cool and try blending again few minutes later. Nut butter will also succeed on this task.
