Cranberry Chocolate Christmas Mini Cakes


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F

  • Line 9" x 9" baking tin with baking paper.

  • In a large bowl whisk together brown rice flour, quinoa flour, arrowroot, cacao, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

  • In a small bowl whisk together maple syrup, olive oil, aquafaba, apple cider vinegar, vanilla and rice milk.

  • Add the wet mix to the dry mix and mix until well combined. The mix should be pourable, but not too thin consistency.

  • Pour the mix into the prepared dish and smooth out the top.

  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until a cocktail stick comes out clean.

  • Remove from the oven once ready and leave to cool down before carefully removing from the tin.

  • Place onto a flat surface and using 2" round cutter carefully cut out shapes. You should end up with 11-12 shapes.

  • Sandwich 2 together with a generous dollop of cranberry jam.

  • Gently melt the chocolate in a double boiler or microwave and pour over top of the cakes gently smoothing out the chocolate to drip over the edge.

  • Decorate with fresh cranberries.

  • To make the cranberry jam place cranberries, orange juice, maple syrup and cinnamon stick into a pot and gently heat for about 10 min until cranberries have popped and are soft. Remove the cinnamon stick and mash the cranberries with a fork until smooth. Stir in chia seeds and leave to cool down for a bit before transferring into fridge to set.
