Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake

2014-12-10 09.15.36 (2)



This is my first attempt at baking cinnamon swirl cake (you can tell by the poor “swirling” job I did) 😛 .

My obsession with sponge cakes and cinnamon is getting out of control – I can’t seem to test and try other recipes. It has to include cinnamon!!

Disregard my lack of artistic skills with the swirling and enjoy the cake!


  1. 4 eggs
  2. 1/4 cup maple syrup
  3. 2 Tbsp almond butter
  4. 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  5. 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
  6. 1 + 1/2 cups almond flour
  7. 1 tsp baking powder
  8. Pinch of salt


  1. 2 Tbsps pure maple syrup
  2. 1 Tbsp melted coconut oil
  3. 1 Tbsp cinnamon



  1. Set oven to approximately 177 C
  2. In a bowl, combine eggs, 1/4 cup maple syrup, almond butter, vanilla and coconut milk. Whisk well
  3. In a another larger bowl, combine almond flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well
  4. Stir wet ingredients into dry.
  5. Grease a 8×8 glass square baking pan with a bit of coconut oil.
  6. Pour in the batter.
  7. In a small bowl, use a fork to stir together the 2 Tbsps maple syrup, coconut oil and cinnamon for the topping.
  8. Drizzle this mixture over the top of the batter and use a butter knife to swirl (try to do a better job than mine )
  9. Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
