Coconut and Vanilla Light Cake

I called this cake light because, even though there is a little bit of sugar (aka granulated fructose) and some oil, the quantities are small enough to enjoy it as a guilt-free treat. Also, I believe in balance. The recipe serves 12 and so, I’d take one or two slices depending on how I feel :). This is also a macro friendly recipe and each slice has approximately 123 calories. Hope you like it, let me know in the comments below what you think and how I can improve it xx

Ingredients (serves 12):

  • 3/4 cup self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup granulated fructose or sugar (any kind)
  • 2 medium eggs (vegans can substitute a mix of 2 tbsp of chia seeds and 6 tbsp of water)
  • 1/4 cup dessicated coconut
  • 5ml vanilla extract



  • Mix the flour and dessicated coconut
  • In a separate bowl, mix the eggs or chia mixture with the granulated fructose or granulated sugar, and the vanilla extract
  • Mix the dry and liquid ingredients
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees C for about 20 min, or until a knife comes out clean from the cake
