  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, sift together tiger nut flour, arrowroot flour, water chestnut flour, sea salt, and baking soda.
  • In a small ramekin, stir together grain free baking powder, water, and lemon juice until combined.

  • Place 1/2 cup of the mixture in the food processor in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Allow the cake to cool completely (1-2 hours) until pouring the blended glaze over the top.

Recipe Notes

Avocado oil can be used in place of the melted palm shortening
Replace maple syrup with apple sauce for a completely fruit sweetened cake.
If you do not have a 6×2 cake round, simply bake it in a loaf pan or bigger cake pan, adjusting the baking time accordingly.
