This cake is so gorgeous and tasty. I nearly fainted. I am making it again for the weekend. Thought I would run by Tuesday’s Horse and drop it off for you to try too.

I used a combination of rice flour and oat flour, however, I am pretty sure that you could also use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend. And if you aren’t gluten-free, you can try using all purpose flour or spelt flour.

I used all oat flour. I have also made it with spelt flour. It worked out fine for me.

I have all types of flour in my cupboard because I am always trying out recipes which always seem to call for something different that a normal person wouldn’t normally have on hand.

Now, the other thing, and this may sound weird, but the recipe calls for Japanese sweet potatoes. You’re probably thinking how in the heck am I going to find those, and it’s a holiday weekend etc. etc. Well, don’t give up, you can order them via Instacart and have them delivered right to your door. How about that. I thought I better mention that — about the Japanese sweet potatoes! By the way, they’re used in the frosting.

Anyway, skip over to this link for the full recipe. You can print it from over there too. I love that.

It’s easy peasy to make. Really. A bit of blending or grinding. Anyway, have a look and see what you think.

Not feeling the coconut cake? I bet you’ll be feeling these.

My daughter makes these. She’s 11. They’re made with sweet peas. Crazy, right?

Well, these brownies are already very chocolatey, but you can never have enough chocolate in your life, right? So let’s top these delicious fudgy brownies with a creamy chocolate spread which tastes like buttercream! It’s made from peanut flour, cocoa powder, coconut oil, maple syrup, and water.

You probably saw peanut flour, and thought, what is Patsy trying to do here with all these odd flours. But don’t you worry. You won’t have to use Instacart.

In the recipe notes it says, “You can skip it [the peanut flour] and use 7 tbsp of cocoa powder and leave out the water (as the peanut flour makes the mixture thicker).” See!

So gooey and wonderful.

Aren’t I good to you? Thanks for stopping by. Stay safe and have a great weekend.
