  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9" round cake pan with coconut oil, then add a spoonful of arrowroot flour.

  • Tap the cake pan so that the arrowroot flour coats the bottom and sides of the pan, for easy cake removal after baking.

  • Place all remaining ingredients, except the baking soda and vinegar, in a high-powered blender.

  • Blend until a smooth batter forms. Add the baking soda and vinegar, which is the leavening agent.

  • Blend briefly, just to combine, then pour the batter in to the prepared pan.

  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out of the cake moist but without crumbs. It is better to underbake rather than overbake.

  • To serve, enjoy at warm or at room temperature, spread with ghee. Alternatively, let cool and serve with coconut whipped cream and fresh berries.
