Gluten-free flour blend 200 g


Oat flour 140 g

Cornstarch 1 Tbsp

Almond flour 120 g

Baking soda 1 tsp

Salt 1⁄2 tsp

Ground cinnamon 2 tsp

Ground allspice 1⁄4 tsp

Ground nutmeg 1⁄4 tsp

Neutral oil, such as canola 120 ml

Honey 170 g

Brown sugar, packed 90 g

Large eggs 2

Vanilla extract 1 tsp

This is a quick, fragrant and satisfying cake to make, filling your kitchen with a spiced honey scent. It will last for days at room temperature, improving over time.

KITCHEN NOTES: To make this nondairy for Rosh Hashanah, you can substitute almond or cashew yoghurt.

Preheat the oven to 325°F [160°C]. Butter the sides of a 9 by 5 in [23 by 12 cm] loaf pan or 8 in [20 cm] round cake pan and fit parchment paper into the bottom.

In a large bowl, combine the gluten-free flour, almond flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, honey, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, tea, yogurt and ginger. Quickly whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan.

Bake for 1 hour, or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Loosen the sides with a small knife and turn out onto a wire rack to finish cooling.

Store the cake in an airtight container or tightly wrapped for up to 4 days at room temperature or in the refrigerator for 1 week.
