It's been a very busy week, so busy I haven't been able to cook much at home. The weather is beautiful and Im really enjoying it. So happy the rain hasn't arrived yet! I made this cake some time ago. A friend of mine kept asking me for a nice carob cake so I came up with this recipe. If you don't have carob you can replace it with cacao powder. Its a very moist cake and not too sweet, perfect for tea time with a nice cup of tea.
The pictures where taken by my friend Lorena Alaniz, thank you Lore!

Carob Cake


150 grs brown spelt flour
50 grs carob flour
150 gr oats (fast cooking)
10 grs baking powder
pinch of salt
200 grs jaggery or brown sugar
3 eggs
200 ml water
80 ml coconut oil/ canola oil or any other oil you want
1 tsp vanilla
a handfull of dried fruit/seeds/nuts of choice


Pre-heat oven at 176 C degrees. Butter a 12x 22cm / 5 by 9 inch  loaf pan.
In a bowl combine the flours, oats, baking powder, salt and sugar. In a separate bowl mix all the wet ingredients; eggs, water, oil and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just incorporated. Add the nuts/seeds/dried fruit. Do not over mix.
Add the mix to the prepared tin and bake for 1 hour or until a tester inserted into the cake comes out clean. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Remove from the pan, let cool completely before cutting.

I's hard to wait, but try! If not the cake will crumble apart.

I hope you like the recipe, it's different and really easy to make. Wish you all the best for the next week.
Lots of love,xx
