I know what your thinking…’Amie, you’re crazy for baking a cake when it was 98 degrees here in Manhattan all week’…But, I just had to … I had a yearnin’ for some bakin’ and when I get the yearnin’ … I make it happen. I took a nice stroll over to the newest Whole Foods Market on the Upper West Side (which is honestly my new home because I love it o’ so much, hehe) to purchase some fresh grapefruit, poppy seeds and an exceptionally pure olive oil.

I choose a few ruby red grapefruits that were incredibly tender and juicy…I simply couldn’t resist.  By the time I got back to my lil’ apartment, I had created a gluten-free masterpiece in my mind.  I leave you with my latest creation…the best cake I’ve made yet and let me tell you, this one will surely knock your socks off…

  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • Greek yogurt, for topping
  • Agave nectar, for topping

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees; spray a 9-10” round spring-form pan with non-stick baking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs and sugar.
  3. Slowly add oil, almond milk, grapefruit juice and zest; mix well to combine.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, chili powder, poppy seeds, baking soda and sea salt.

  9. Enjoy!

    1. Karen,

      Thank you for your email; yes, I use “NuNaturals Stevia for Baking” and I also use “Stevia In The Raw for Baking” both brands are delicious, however, I prefer the NuNaturals…it can be purchased at Whole Foods Market and many other food stores/health food stores. Let me know if you have further questions; good luck and I hope you enjoy this tasty cake! Best, Amie
