  • 1/2 cup white rice flour, plus 1 tbsp.
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup potato or corn starch
  • 25 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 1/3 cup smooth cashew butter or other nut butter made with the NutraMilk
  • 1 cup plant-based milk (room temperature) made with the NutraMilk (I used almond)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tbsp. more for sweeter
  • 5 tbsp. oil
  • 1/2 tsp vinegar use 1 tsp vinegar if omitting citric acid
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds or 1.5 tbsp. flax seed meal

Chocolate Layer:

  • 5 tbsp. cocoa powder

Topping (Cashew icing)

  • ½ cup cashew butter made with the NutraMilk
  • 1/2 cup almond milk made with the NutraMilk
  • 2 tbsp. agave syrup or other liquid sweetener of choice
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder (optional)
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, scraped (optional)
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil, melted

For cashew butter

  • 2 cups (300g) cashews
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)

For almond milk

  • 1 cup (150g) almonds
  • 1 quart (946ml) water
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)


  • Start by making cashew butter
    • Place cashews and salt in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 5-6 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid.
    • If necessary, set for an additional 1-2 minutes for a creamier butter.

  • Next, make fresh almond milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place almonds in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 7 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense, open spigot and fill your container with almond milk.
  • Prepare a heavy loaf pan (glass or stoneware) by lining with parchment. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, whisk 1/2 cup rice flour and rest of the dry ingredients and set aside. Add spices like 1/2 tsp cinnamon for additional flavor if you like.
  • In another bowl, add all the wet ingredients and mix well. If they are not at room temperature, let the mixture sit for a few minutes to warm up, then whisk really well until the sugar and nut butter are well combined.
  • Combine the wet and the dry and whisk well to make a smooth batter. Transfer half of the mixture to another bowl.

  • To one bowl, add cocoa powder and whisk in lightly to just about combine.
  • To the other bowl add 1 tbsp rice flour and whisk in lightly.
  • Add layers of the batters as you wish to the lined loaf pan (or add ladles of the batter and swirl lightly).

  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick from the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes, then carefully lift from the pan. Do not let the cake sit in the hot pan for too long. Lightly cover with a kitchen towel or parchment and let it cool completely before slicing.
  • Process cashew icing ingredients in the NutraMilk until smooth and creamy. Spread layer over cake.

  • Store on the counter for the day, refrigerated for up to a week. Warm to serve.
