4 tablespoons poppy seeds

50g Natvia 100% Natural Sweetener

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Zest and juice of 2 lemons

2 tablespoons flaxseeds

100ml yogurt (can be dairy-free)

100ml melted coconut oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line a loaf tin.
  2. Mix together the ground almonds, flours, poppy seeds, Natvia, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and lemon zest in a large bowl.
  3. Mix together the flaxseeds with 5 tablespoons water and set aside for 10 minutes to form a gel.
  4. Whisk together the yogurt, oil, vanilla and lemon juice, then pour this into the dry ingredients along with the flaxseed gel. Mix well to form a batter.
  5. Spoon this into the loaf tin and smooth out evenly. Bake for about 45 minutes until risen and cooked through, then leave to cool.
  6. Meanwhile scrape the solid cream from the coconut milk can and place in a bowl. Whip/beat in the other ingredients until smooth then chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  7. Once the loaf has completely cooled, turn out onto a board and spread over the frosting. Scatter over the pomegranate seeds and freeze-dried raspberries over the top. Now slice up and serve!
