Caramelised Sesame Popcorn Cake

IMG_4228This dessert tastes so indulgent, it is almost hard to believe that it’s healthy! Made using organic sesame flour, it has a deliciously soft centre and is a perfect paired with choc-tahini sauce. For the sauce, we have also added mesquite powder which helps to create a caramel flavour, along with coconut oil which allows the sauce to set.

We have used organic popcorn to top the cake, which adds a great texture, however this is optional.

We hope you enjoy it! If you make any of our recipes to share via Instagram please tag us @healthsynergy #healthsynergy so we can see!
