Oil 2 cake pans (9”) with coconut oil. Press the cake mixture into the cake bottoms. Place in freezer to cool until ready to fill it.


Melt the 6 dl of cocoa butter in a double boiler. Mix the cocoa butter and Brazil nuts until smooth in an all-purpose mixer or blender. Add to the mix bananas, honey, vanilla, lemon and salt. Mix until silky smooth. Divide the mixture into two different bowls for colouring-flavouring.

Blue filling: add 1 tblsp bilberry or black currant powder.

Red filling: add 2 tblsp lingonberry or cranberry powder.

Remove the cakes from the freezer. Pour onto one layer one colour/flavour and spread evenly. Use a spoon if needed. Pour the second colour/flavour onto the first colour. Use your spoon to swirl or lift up the lower colour upwards.

Freeze the cake for at least one hour. Remove from freezer just before serving to let defrost for a moment.
