Cinnamon Roll Cake with Cinnamon Medjool Date Swirls (gluten free, paleo, dairyfree, vegan, egg free )
I have never come across a person who doesn’t like cinnamon buns. Everyone just loves them, right?
I usually make rolls so I wanted to bake a cake this time. Or maybe Im just feeling too lazy to make a bigger mess in the kitchen…
Cinnamon roll cake is super quick and easy and the result is very satisfying also. If you still want to make rolls and buns be my guest! My recipe allows you to have the choice.
I think it only was a wise thing to add some cashew butter and raw chocolate on top of my cinnamon roll cake, don’t you think?
2 cups almond/rice milk
35 g fresh yeast or 2 sachets dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp cardamom
1/2 tsp vanilla bean powder
1/4 cup coconut sugar or erythritol
3 tbssp maple syrup
2 cups gluten free all purpose flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1 tbsp psyllium
5 tbsp melted coconut oil ( or firm butter)
0- 1/2 cup tapioca starch if the dough is too sticky
Use lukewarm milk and
add the yeast to your baking bowl then
blend until dissolved.
Add salt, cardamom,vanilla,, coconut sugar and maple syrup and
give a little whisk.
Mix xanthan and psyllium into flours.
Start adding flour to the previous.
Add the oil or butter.
Blend the dough thoroughly until the dough feels soft and smooth.
15 pitted and soaked medjools
3 tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp cinnamon powder
pinch of salt
1tbsp coconut flour
Blend everything with a stick blender until smooth.
Now you are ready to put the dough into a baking tray.
Place the dough in turns with the cinnamon/medjool paste into the tray and
make swirls to get a marbled look.
I also used some cashew butter to make tastier swirls.
It really made it taste better than I expected.
You can brush the cake with a beaten egg or maple syrup thinned with water
but it’s not totally necessary.
Let the cake rise half an hour and bake in 180 c for 20- 25 min.
I added some cashew butter and raw chocolate on top of the cake after
it had cooled down. You can find the recipe for raw chocolate in ‘desserts’ if
you fancy some more sweetness to your cinnamon cake!
