Just in the Autumn I long for warming spices. Do you feel the same way? Cinnamon is always in first place and I would love to sprinkle it everywhere. In the coffee, cereal, porridge, pudding and whatever else there is. That’s exactly why this fine sponge cake is topped with a delicious mixture of Cinnamon and cane sugar, which I simply add on top of the cake. It doesn’t get any easier than this, my dears.

Let’s get to the recipe. You don’t need much for this except a little time, patience, a handful of ingredients and of course a baking dish. I use a loaf pan here (I’ve linked you mine at the bottom). Almond milk , apple cider vinegar, baking soda, raw cane sugar, frying and baking oil, vanilla, turmeric (for a yellowish color), flour (feel free to use my gluten free flour mix ), cinnamon , cornstarch, baking powder and a pinch of sea salt.

The cinnamon sugar topping is simply cinnamon and cane sugar, voila!

Should you still feel like something more, then I recommend you my vegan coconut cream which goes really super well with it. I’ll put the coffee on.
