INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/180 degrees Celcius. Line and grease an 8 x 8-inch square pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine all your ingredients and blend until a thick batter remains. Ensure you regularly scrape down the sides to ensure all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  3. Pour the batter in the lined pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a skewer comes out the center. Allow cooling in the pan for 10 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Once cool, make your frosting and refrigerate to firm up slightly. Once smooth and spreadable, pour over your cake and refrigerate. Cut into slices.
