Honey Free, Honey Cake

Honey Free, Honey Cake

Low Fodmap      Gluten Free       Lactose Free       Vegetarian

Makes 2 large loafs or 6 mini loafs

Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana) means it is time to make honey cake, which can be a slight issue if you cannot eat honey.  So this great recipe based on one from Couldn't be Parve solves that and it is my absolute favourite cake to make.  Besides it is your moral duty to eat this cake, how else will you ensure sweet wishes for the year ahead? Calories with a purpose!

Ingredients

  • 400g Gluten Free Flour
  • ¾ tsp Xantham Gum
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder 
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Ground Cloves
  • 1 tsp Ground Allspice
  • 250ml Vegetable Oil
  • 6 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 4 tbsp Treacle
  • 4 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 225g Caster Sugar
  • 150g Brown Sugar
  • 3 Large Eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 250ml Coffee or Strong Tea, warm
  • 125ml Orange Juice
  • 4 tbsp Whiskey

Utensils

  • Large Bowl
  • Sieve
  • Spoon
  • Electric Whisk
  • Loaf Tins, greased and lined with parchment paper
  • Wire rack

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. Sieve the flour, xantham gum, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into the large bowl.  Add in the salt, cinnamon, allspice and cloves and mix until fully combined.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add in the oil, maple syrup, golden syrup, treacle, caster sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, coffee/tea, orange juice and whiskey.  Whisk the mixture, using the electric whisk on a low setting, until fully combined (making sure that none of it is stuck to the bottom or the sides!)
  4. Spoon the batter equally into the tins and place in the middle of the oven to bake.
  5. Bake the cake until the top springs back, when pressed lightly.  It will take 45-55 minutes for a full sized loaf to bake or 35-40 minutes for the mini ones
  6. Allow the cakes to stand for 15 minutes, before turning them out onto a wire rack to cool fully
