Description

Gluten-free, low and all natural sugars! This coffee cake is moist and so good for you to enjoy on a cold afternoon!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CAKE:
  • ½ cups Arrowroot
  • ½ cups Almond Flour
  • ½ cups Coconut Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Spice
  • ½ teaspoons Nutmeg
  • ¾ cups High Quality, Or Homemade Pumpkin Puree
  • ¼ cups Full-fat Coconut Milk
  • ½ cups Coconut Oil
  • ¼ cups Maple Syrup
  • 2 whole Large Eggs
  • FOR THE STREUSEL:
  • ¼ cups Sucanat
  • 2 Tablespoons Almond Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Arrowroot
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 6 Tablespoons Room Temperature Butter
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅓ cups Raw Pepitas (pumpkin Seeds)
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • ½ cups Cashews, Soaked For At Least 4 Hours And Drained
  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • ⅛ teaspoons Sea Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Hot Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Full-fat Coconut Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Melted, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Preparation

Note: Before you begin, make sure you have your cashews soaking for at least 4 hours.

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9” round cake pan. Local Milk (the original recipe author) used a cast iron which I definitely recommend, if you have it.

2. For the cake, in a mixing bowl, whisk together the arrowroot, almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and nutmeg. Set aside.

3. In a second mixing bowl, mix the pumpkin puree and full fat coconut milk. Set aside.

4. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the coconut oil and maple syrup together. Mix on low, adding the eggs one at a time.

5. To this mixture, add 1/3 of the dry mixture, then 1/3 of the wet mixture, mixing until only just incorporated. Keep adding until all ingredients are in one bowl, just mixed. Please don’t overmix the batter.

6. Pour batter into the pan and bake for 20 minutes.

7. Meanwhile, make the streusel. Combine sucanat, almond flour, arrowroot, cinnamon, butter (room temperature), and salt. Use your fingers to create a crumbled, sandy mixture, breaking up the butter with the rest of the ingredients by hand. Mix in the pepitas.

8. When the cake has baked for 20 minutes, sprinkle the streusel on top. Bake for 25-30 more minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow cake to cool.

9. While the cake cools, prepare the glaze. Put the cashews, maple syrup, sea salt, hot water, full fat coconut milk, vanilla extract, and melted and warm extra-virgin coconut oil in a high speed blender or food processor and combine until it becomes a creamy mixture. If there are any clumps, sift them out. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake.

Enjoy with a cup of coffee!
