Birthday Cake

Posted by on January 16, 2012

It’s not uncommon that I would bake my own birthday cake. While it seems sad, it really is a great time to experiment with new technique because if it goes wrong you’re not stuffing up someone else’s birthday! Here’s what I came up with for the year 33.


  • 1 mango
  • 1 really ripe large banana
  • 250g almond meal
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 3 tsp vanilla paste
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup extra chopped mango


  1. Add mango flesh, banana, sugar, vanilla paste, oil and eggs to a food processor. Blitz until really well combined. Try to make sure there are no more fruit chunks.
  2. Add almond meal and baking powder. Blitz until just combined. Don’t overdo it here.
  3. Stir thru macadamia nuts and chopped mango.
  4. Bake in a round springform pan for 45-50 minutes at 180C.
