Spice cake
Sugar and spice makes for a very nice treat when combined to create this flourless cake.

Spices bring warmth to desserts and baked sweets, as much as they do savoury dishes. The French have their quatre épices, which uses a blend of cinnamon (pepper for the savoury version), nutmeg, cloves, and allspice. Cardamom and fenugreek bring wonderful fragrance to Middle Eastern cooking, and there are a million variations of gingerbread, like the Dutch classic speculaas. To celebrate the classic marriage of sugar and spice, this simple almond cake can be infused with a blend of spices, including cardamom, allspice, and cinnamon. Plus, it’s gluten-free.
