make

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. ⁠
  2. Lightly grease two baking tins (8 inch).⁠
  3. In a bowl, combine the plant based milk, coffee and vinegar. Set aside to thicken.⁠
  4. Once thick, mix in the remaining wet ingredients. ⁠
  5. Gently sift in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. ⁠
  6. Pour this into your two baking tins. ⁠
  7. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until well risen, a knife comes out clean and golden on top. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tins. ⁠
  8. Whilst the cake is cooling, make the frosting. Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer and beat on medium speed for a few minutes, or until it’s smooth and fluffy, scraping down the edges as needed. ⁠
  9. Next, make the caramel sauce. Melt the coconut oil, almond butter, and CARAMEL SYRUP together in a pan over a very low heat and stir until smooth.⁠
  10. ⁠Leave to cool. ⁠
  11. Layer the cakes with the frosting, walnuts, and caramel sauce once cool. ⁠
  12. Slice and enjoy! ⁠
