  6. Repeat with the remaining batter. Add more coconut oil to the skillet as needed.

For the jam:

  1. Preheat a medium pot over medium heat. Add the coconut oil, then the diced apples (sautéed a bit). Add the coconut sugar, cinnamon, anise star and nutmeg. Let cook for 2- 3 minutes until fragrant.
  2. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 mins, or until the apples are fork tender. Once the jam is cold you can store it in the fridge.

Assembly:

  1. If your cake is too thick, take the knife to the side of the cake. Slowly turn the cooled cake while moving the knife in a back and forth motion.
  2. Spread a generous layer of ganache on the top of the first cooled cake, then add another layer on the second cake, spread more ganache, then other layer and repeat the same process. For the sides, take some chocolate ganache with a metal spatula, hold it against the side on a 90-degree angle and spread it, covering the cake all around.
