Here's the GAPS cake recipe. It is a cinnamon raisin bread, but I doubled it and baked in a round baking pan for the cake above. It is actually fluffy and pretty yummy - it uses a lot of eggs - 10 for the cake above! A big thanks goes to Nourished and Nurtured for the recipe that we adapted - go check out her GAPS recipes, they're awesome!
So, here it is - this is the recipe not doubled.
Cinnamon Raisin Bread (GAPS legal, Grain, Sugar, Gluten, Dairy, Corn, Soy-Free)
Adapted from Nourished and Nurtured
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup honey, or to taste
3/4 cup almond meal/flour*
1/2 cup raisins**
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease pans (see note below) with coconut oil or other GAPS legal fat.
2. Beat together the eggs, soda, cinnamon and honey to taste. Stir in the almond flour. Fold in the raisins.
3. Bake at 325 degrees F for about 25-35 minutes, until the middle is set and the top is golden brown. (see note below).
*The recipe used 1/3 cup coconut flour and 1/4 cup almond flour, but we use just almond.
**You may substitute safe nuts for the raisins or omit the raisins all together, if desired.
Here are a few of Sarah's notes and tips:
"I used loaf pans that were 7.5X3.75X2.25 inch. Although the batter would all fit into a larger loaf pan, it will cook better as two smaller loaves so that the coconut flour will not be overcooked before the middle is set."
"I like to cook this bread for a few minutes past when the middle is set so that the bread will be nice and dry for toasting."
"Store in the fridge or freezer. I like to use a good bread knife to cut each loaf into many slices. I then place a small square of parchment paper between each slice, wrap it all in plastic wrap, and store it in the freezer. The parchment paper ensures that I can easily pull out just one slice at a time. This bread freezes very well, and makes great toast!"
