Colombe: When you look at this fresh baked mouth watering teacake you probably don’t think garbanzo and fava beans.
But Gluten free garbanzo and fava flour is exactly what Aaron used to make this right.
Erin: Exactly and there’s some other really interesting gluten free alternatives in this recipe too.
Colombe: Great well let’s get baking as soon as we bake this the sooner we get to try everything.
Erin: Exactly so grab the garbanzo fava bean flour and I know it sounds really weird but this is an excellent flour blend that adds a lot of volume. Then we’re going to take the potato starch. It’s comparable to cornstarch as well as the arrowroot.
Colombe: And what is the arrowroot used for?
Erin: It’s a thickener and also is a starch. Next we’re going to go for evaporated king juice. It’s better than sugar because it’s not highly processed like it and a lot of it’s nutrients are still intact. Baking powder, okay and baking soda and both of these are leaveners. Kosher salt always it balances out the sweetness in any dessert cinnamon.
Erin: Just a little to spice it up and finally the zamping gum and you really want to be careful with this stuff you put in too much you better going to get a really thick and a really sticky and it’s too delicious. Okay so now we’ve got our dry ingredients on this stuff let’s go for the wax.
Erin: This is coconut oil Next we’re going to put in unsweetened apple sauce this adds a lot of moisture that you miss when you take out the eggs in the recipe it’s kind of a secret to gluten free baking. Adding a lot of water in this case is going to really loosen up the batter and hope it fluff up a lot.
Colombe: I love it your giving all away your secrets.
Erin: Not all of them. Next we’re going to grab ¼ cup that’s a good amount and we’re going to make the cinnamon swirl that goes right in the center, this is your evaporated king juice. I’m going to dump that in your cinnamon okay and then we get our vanilla in start mixing it and who knows it going to be really dry so we add a little more hot water. Get our pan out.
Colombe: So this is pre-greased.
Erin: Exactly, yes so we’re going to get our first larger batter, the cinnamon batter and pour all of that into the loaf pan and what I want you to do is pour a thin strip of cinnamon to make sure in a straight line down the center now we’re going to do this secret tricky marbling. I like to do it this way, you just roll it around and this way your going to get a really nice marble in the center then we top it off with sugars so that it’s a really nice top.
Colombe: So our oven is preheated at 325.
Erin: Right room temperature to get it in there in the middle shelf, bigger for about 25 minutes and then brush it with coconut oil and return it to bake for another 15 and that’s going to give it a really nice buttery crust.
Colombe: So how long is this cooled for?
Erin: About 30 minutes and look at this.
Colombe: Wow it looks marvelous.
Erin: I like that top part.
Colombe: That is delicious.
