Flor The Topping

For The Cake

The Glaze


Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F. Grease or line an 8x8 inch baking pan.
  2. Make the topping

    1. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a medium size bowl. Mix really well.
    2. Add chopped pecans or walnuts and mix again.
    3. Add oil, it may not seem like enough but it is. Mix really well so there are no large clumps.
    4. Set aside.

    Make cake batter

    1. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk.
    2. In a seperate bowl combine all wet ingredients and mix well then add to the dry ingredients and mix again.
    3. Take 2 TBSP of the topping mixture and sprinkle over batter and mix it in.
    4. Pour the batter into prepared pan and sprinkle the top with the remaining toping mixture.
    5. Bake 45-55 in or until toothpick comes out clean.
    6. If topping starts to get too brown, cover it with foil and continue to bake until done.

    Make the glaze

    1. Once cake is cooled make the glaze.
    2. In a bowl combine powdered sugar and vanilla extract.
    3. Slowly add milk to reach the desired consistency. You want it thick but pourable so start by adding one tbsp at a time. You may not need to use all the milk.
    4. Drizzle over cooled cake.


You can make this cake using regular flour and dairy, just swap them out where needed. A 9x9 pan can be used, the cake will be a bit thinner. You can add different spices or some cooked apples to the cake batter to make a different variation. Cup 4 Cup flour has dairy in it, so if you are planning on making it dairy-free please choose another gf flour such as King Arthur Measure for Measure.
