Apple Cider Cake with Blackberry Cashew Buttercream Frosting

Apple Cider cake (makes two 6” layers)

  • 2 c gluten-free flour

  • 1/2 c coconut flour

  • 1 c coconut sugar

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp Suncore Foods Rose Salt

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 c coconut oil

  • 1 c brewed Blackberry Apple Cider Digestive Awakening Tea by Yogi in oat milk

  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 c apples cut in cubes (pink lady)

Blackberry Cashew Buttercream

  • 3 c cashews soaked overnight

  • 1/2 c melted coconut oil

  • 1 cup blackberries

  • 1 c coconut cream

  • 1/2 tsp Suncore salt

  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice

  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla


Preheat your oven to 350F. Grease two 6” pans with coconut oil. In a mixer, add dry ingredients to your bowl. Slowly add in wet ingredients and mix with a a paddle attachment until the batter is smooth. Slowly fold in apple to the batter. Bake the cake layers for 20-35 minutes or until firm to the touch.

The blackberry cashew buttercream should be prepared the night before decorating your cake. In a high speed blender, mix together ingredients for the buttercream. Pour the mixture into a bowl and allow to chill overnight.

I added Suncore Food's Pink Pitaya powder and their Blue Butterfly Pea powder to some of my buttercream to get beautiful, whimsical colors for decorating this cake. I used piping tips 59S and 116L to decorate the outside of the cake, after I crumb coat frosted the entire cake base. For toppings, I chose to use Suncore’s Rose Petals and their Rose Apple Chips to add a crunchy and colorful texture to the cake. Finished with a few florals, blackberries and figs for good measure, this Apple Cider Cake is ready for it’s close up!
