Gluten Free Dairy Free Cake

The Goodness Cake – Gluten Free Dairy Free Cake

gluten free dairy free cake

Named after all the incredible goodness that it contains. Ground nuts, seeds, and organic sultanas, along with hints of ginger and cinnamon spice, it’s my FAVOURITE comfort cake for a cold wintry day, or for taking to a friends house for morning tea.

Everyone always comments on how delicious this cake is, and it certainly add that wow factor when you tell them it contains no dairy, wheat, gluten, refined sugars, or flours.

Just pure plant goodness!



1 1/2 ground almonds (almond meal)
1 cup ground sunflower seeds

1/2 cup of oil (coconut or olive)
1/2 cup coconut sugar 1 tbsp honey

2 large free range eggs (beaten)
1/2 cup organic sultanas

2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 180 C.

Grind the sunflower seeds and almonds to a fine flour. (I use the NutriBullet or the Kambrook Bliz2go – so quick and easy). Mix with the honey, eggs, coconut sugar and spices. Once mixed well, add the walnuts and sultanas and stir to combine.

The mixture will be quite liquid, thesis normal, so line a cake tin and fill with the mixture. Bake in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes. The cake will be firm on the outside but slightly gooey in the middle still, which helps it stay moist when it cools.

The BEST Banana Cake

I’m not kidding, this dairy and gluten free cake disappeared so fast off the rack I couldn’t even get a photo of the whole thing.

I added choc chips to the mix and scattered some on top, but if you don’t have them or want to make it 100% refined sugar free leave them out.  This is another super simple throw it all together and bake recipe.  LOVE that!

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Recipe

This gluten free chocolate cake recipe is one of the easiest chocolate cake recipes I know, and it only takes around 20 minutes to cook.  

It is also one of the healthiest because rather than just being gluten free it is also wheat and dairy free, no refined sugars and filled with fibre from nuts and seeds.  

Use this as a base, and double or triple the quantities to create a bigger birthday or celebration cake.

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Recipe


1 cup of ground almonds

1 cup of ground flaxseed

1/2 cup organic cocoa

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/4 cup of water

2 tbsp melted coconut oil

1 tbsp honey

3 free range eggs beaten

pinch of salt

1 tsp organic vanilla essence


Preheat oven to 180 C.

This is yet another throw everything together and mix well recipes.  It doesn’t matter what goes in first as long as it is mixed well and eggs are beaten first.  Pour into a lined cake tin and cook for 18-22 minutes until just cooked.  Over cooking nut based cakes will make them dry so it is better to just undercook it as it will firm when cool.  

Let cool and enjoy.  This keep swell in an air tight container too and stays moist.  If you like the speed and ease of this recipe, you will LOVE my other recipes.
