Chocolate Layer Cake With Berries
If you love bohemian, wild, creamy and luscious cakes, this is what your parties miss! Traditional cream cakes are quite boring and predictable so I had to create something different for this summer. This beautiful cake is free from dairy and gluten. The taste is versatile and fresh.
I love easy recipes so that was my advice for myself when I started to plan this recipe. That’s why the cake base is completed in baking tray, it is super easy!
Filling is mouthwatering combination of coconut cream and oatmeal cream cheese. Filling gets freshness from lemon peel and sweetness from honey. If you have celiac disease, you must replace the oat cream cheese with the same amount of coconut cream or milk-based cream cheese.
The cake gets better with age, so I recommend to fill it the night before parties and decorate later. What it comes to the look of the cake, remember that it is not too exact! This cake must look little wild.

6 eggs (size M)

Cut the cake after that to four equally large pieces.

½ grated lemon peel
Open coconut cream cans and drain the extra water away. Measure to a bowl thick coconut milk, honey and grated lemon peel. Mix with beater until the filling is smooth. Add then oat cream cheese and mix until smooth. If the filling seems to bee too thin, put it to fridge for an hour.

Let raspberries melt soft. Mix melted raspberries and honey together with big spoon.

Spread over the first cake base ¼ from the lemon filling ja ¼ part from raspberry jam. Add second cake base on top of the lemon filling and continue assembly in the same way with next three layer. Decorate the cake with fresh berries, herbs and flowers. Enjoy!
