Vegan Easter bird nest cake
You need this:
For the "nest":
- 375 grams of oatmeal flour (grinding oatmeal in the blender into flour)
- 10 grams (tartar) baking powder
- 1 banana, pureed
- two big tablespoons of Greensweet Extra Sweet
- 150 grams of sunflower seeds
- 1 tablespoon of anise powder
- ceylon cinnamon powder to dust
- hot water
For the topping:
- 4 tablespoons of organic skimmed cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon of Greensweet Extra Sweet
For the eggs:
- 2 x 200 grams oatmeal flour
- 3 tablespoons of organic skimmed cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons of Greensweet Extra Sweet
- 2 tablespoons egg substitute (click here for recipe)
This is how you make it:
By making a wad of a sheet of baking paper and folding it out again, you get the funny exterior of the nest. Cover a round shape (20 cm) with the crumpled baking paper.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Mix all the ingredients, except the cinnamon, for the litter in a bowl. Always add warm water to the mixture until the mixture has become nicely smooth. Pour in the shape, and make a big hole in the middle. Sprinkle the pit with the cinnamon. Bake the nest in the middle of the oven until about 30-35 minutes, keep checking. Allow to cool.
While the nest is baking in the oven, we are going to make the eggs. Stir in a bowl 200 grams of flour with a tablespoon of stevia and the cocoa powder well together, add small bits of water, knead everything well into a dough. Turn out balls (eggs) here. Put the egg substitute in a bowl, and add a tablespoon of water. Stir. Then add the 200 flour and stevia, and add small amounts of water until everything becomes a dough. Turn "eggs" out again.
Put all ingredients for the topping in a bowl and make a nice firm glaze with some water. Spread the pit in the nest with the glaze, and spread the eggs over it.
