Olaf from Frozen birthday cake or Coronation cake from the same dough

Olaf from Frozen is a great favourite of my grandchild so I decided to try to make this popular snowman for her birthday. As a banana bread cake with whipped oat cream. It was quite a success so I decided to share the recipe with you ☃️ 

And to celebrate the Coronation it’s nice to make a three layer cake using the same dough 👑


2 tbsp chia seeds

6 tbsp water

3-4 ripe bananas, some black spots but not turned black cause then the starches have completely converted to sugar

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp cinnamon

3 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder, glutenfree

1/2-1  tsp salt

1/2 tsp pure vanilla

1 cup almond milk

3  cups almond flour

2 cups oats, glutenfree

1 cup rice flour

1/2 cup tapioca


Add the chia seeds and water to a big bowl and mix well. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

Mash the bananas.

Take the bowl with the chia egg (chia seeds and water) and stir in the olive oil. The add cinnamon, vanilla and salt and mix well. Then blend in the bananas and thereafter the almond milk and baking agents.

Using a wooden spoon blend in the dry ingredients; almond flour, oats, rice flour and tapioca.

Divide the dough into three round, non stick spring forms in different sizes. Bake for 35-40 minutes on 170 degrees.

When the cakes have cooled on a baking rack, cut out lovely Olaf with a sharp knife.

Use the biggest cake for his face. Cut as shown on the photo.

Next cut out from the middle sized cake for the smallest one to fit in.

The smallest one is the upper body.

Then cut out feet from the cut outs.

Children’s birthday cakes are normally decorated with icing, fondant and candy. That doesn’t work for a cake with no added sugar so I used blueberries to make the outlines, blackberries for eyes and buttons, cocoa to colour inside the mouth, and a carrot for the nose of course.

I used whipped oat cream to cover the cake, but I think whipped coconut cream would have worked even better.

The cake was a good addition to the birthday table and went down a treat.

Birthday girl was really happy with her Olaf and wore a Frozen dress for her birthday.


This recipe also works for a three layer cake, which would be great to celebrate the Coronation 👑



Or muffins even.

For the birthday cake you can also use other options like Chocolate cakesponge or a cake with walnuts, almonds and chocolate.
