  • For the cake:
  • 100 g oat flour
  • 100 g almond flour
  • 135 g rice flour
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 2 t ground cardamon
  • 2 t ground ginger
  • 1 t salt
  • 10 Woolworths fresh Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • 4 free-range eggs
  • 125 g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 250 g Woolworths smooth ricotta
  • 150 g Woolworths Flavourburst blueberries
  • For the glaze:
  • 250 g xylitol
  • 1 T water
  • 1⁄2 cup cream
  • 170 g salted butter

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease an 25 cm bundt cake tin.

To make the cake, place all the dry ingredients in a food processor and pulse until combined, then transfer to a large bowl.

Place all the wet ingredients except the blueberries in the food processor and pulse until smooth
and creamy.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix well. Gently stir in the blueberries.

Pour the mixture into the cake tin and bake for 45–50 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool in the tin for 15 minutes before removing it.

To make the glaze, place the xylitol and water into a small saucepan over a medium heat. Heat the cream in a separate saucepan and, once the xylitol mixture turns caramel in colour, add the cream and stir in the butter.

Remove the cake from the tin and pour over the glaze.

Cook's note: Xylitol takes longer to caramelise than sugar, and smokes more than sugar. Take care working with the hot syrup, especially when adding ingredients to it.

    Do not try this recipe at home! The recipe of the glaze resulted in 2nd degree burns. Just judging by the way the xylitol/water mixture is smoking, this is really unsafe for someone to make at home. For something to burn and smoke like this for 20+ minutes, also cannot be healthy to consume.
    When I added the cream to the extremely hot xylitol/water mixture it “exploded” and ended up burning my hands and face really bad. The mixture is way to hot to add cream to. It has to cool down first before adding the rest of the ingredients. This is not indicated on the recipe so please be careful.

      Hi Nicola, we’ve updated the recipe to remind readers to be very careful when working with caramel. Unfortunately, the sugar can’t be cooled down before adding the cream as it won’t emulsify correctly. Thank you for bringing this to our awareness!
