Cinnamon and honey help support a stronger immune system, digestive system, lowers bad cholesterol, improves your heart, bones, skin, teeth, and hair, as well as stimulate weight loss. It also helps in relief from itching, and the improvement of arthritis symptoms.

Let’s Get Started with the Recipe

Cake Ingredients

1 Large, sweet potato
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 tablespoon of melted or liquid Coconut oil
2 tablespoons of organic honey (Variations you can use for sweetness are a half cup of organic apricot or apple juice)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 eggs

1 cup of either Chickpea flour, Oat, Almond or Quinoa flour
1 teaspoon Bicarb
1/2 cup almond or coconut milk

Method
Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced).

Mix Olive oil, melted or liquid coconut oil together with honey. Mix in vanilla then add one egg at a time. Mix well together until smooth then add in cinnamon stir through.

Gently fold in flour with a plastic spatula, gradually adding milk.
Mash the sweet potato pieces well, you can use a blender to make nice and smooth. Now stir in gently to the flour mix.
Transfer to a greased, lined 20cm x 20cm round tin and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Before removing from oven check that is cooked by poking a skewer into the centre of the cake, if it comes out clean then it is cooked, and you can remove the cake from the oven. Allow to completely cool before applying the Cinnamon frosting.
