This year we decided to make a couple of versions of the traditional Coca de Sant Joan. The base is the same, only the decoration changes: one has the traditional custard cream (vegan) and the other any fruit you fancy. There are no refined sugars, just our organic agave concentrate so you can enjoy a healthier coca.




For the dough:


350 g strong flour

100 g spelt flour

50 g almond flour

200 ml almond milk

37.5 g fresh yeast

40 g vegetable butter

40 ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

Zest 1 lemon and 1 orange

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. aniseed

1 tsp. salt

½ cup agave concentrate


For the cream


2 cups vegetable milk

3/4 cup maize flour

1 vanilla stick

1 cinnamon stick

Lemon and orange peel

¼ cup agave concentrate





For the cream:


Dissolve the cornflour in a bowl with a cup of cold milk. At the same time, place the remaining milk in a saucepan with the husks, cinnamon, vanilla and syrup. When hot, strain and return to a low heat.


Gradually add the previous mixture, stirring gently, until the mixture has reached the desired consistency. Remove from the heat and leave to cool. Cover with cling film to prevent a 'crust' forming.


For the dough:


Sift the flours. Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk. Add the flours and mix by hand or in a mixer. Add the salt, then the liquid and continue to knead. When everything is mixed, add the butter and oil and continue to knead until you have a homogeneous dough.


Pour the dough onto a floured surface and knead gently by hand until it forms a ball. Place in an oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth and leave to rise until doubled in volume (about 1 hour).


When the dough has risen, knead it again by hand and divide it into 2 balls. Put some baking paper on a baking tray and place the first ball on top, shaping it into a square or an oval (according to taste).


Repeat the process with the other ball and leave to rest for 1 hour.

Mix some of the agave concentrate with a few drops of water and brush it over each coca.



Heat the oven to 175°.

Bake for about 40 minutes.


Decorate as you like:


- With custard and almonds: simply fill a piping bag with the custard, decorate and sprinkle

   with almonds.

- A fruity coca: with your favourite seasonal fruit.

- Mix coca with cream and fruit.



It all depends on your imagination!


We hope you enjoy it, and that you have a happy Sant Joan festival!
