  • Soak the Hippophae berries in warm water and add 2 tbsp of heated rum. (you can heat it in a small saucepan, or just use a candle underneath your spoon) Cover it with a plate and keep it at room temperature.

  • Melt the butter and add it slowly to the egg mixture. Now start adding ground nuts spoon by spoon. Add citrus zest and vanilla extract.
  • At this point, add psyllium powder and coconut flour. The batter will get thicker now. 
  • Start adding sparkling mineral water spoon by spoon. Beat the mixture for another 2-3 minutes. At this point add strained Hippophae berries to the mixture and mix with a spatula. Keep the water in which the berries were soaked.

  • Bake the cake for 50 minutes without opening the oven. When it's ready remove it from the pan and let it cool down totally. Now cut the cake in half horizontally.
  • Mix mascarpone with the remaining water in which you soaked the berries. Add stevia and vanilla extract.
