Happy Thanksgiving! I made this cinnamon spice loaf just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. Its low in fat, gluten-free, and sweetened with coconut sugar instead of refined white sugar, so its easy on your caloric intake over the holiday. I added lots of cinnamon and vanilla seeds for deep flavour, and topped the loaf with pecans for a nutty crunch. My favourite time to enjoy this loaf is in the morning with my tea.

Autumn Cinnamon Spice Cake

  • 1  1/4 cup gluten free flour
  • 1 cup plus 1/2 cup coconut sugar, divided
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon plus 3 Tblsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup vanilla yoghurt, plus 1/2 cup for filling
  • 1/2 vanilla pod, seeds scraped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease two medium sized loaf pans with oil (or use one 9×11″ loaf pan.)
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1 cup of coconut sugar, baking soda, salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the yoghurt, eggs, oil, and vanilla seeds. Stir into the dry ingredients until just moistened.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, and 3 Tblsp cinnamon. Set aside.
  5. Pour half of the batter evenly into the loaf pans (or all into one large loaf pan), and fill them to the middle with batter. Spread a layer of yoghurt with the 1/2 cup vanilla yoghurt on top of the batter, then sprinkle a layer of the coconut sugar and cinnamon mixture on top. Spread the remaining batter on top. Finally top with the pecans, and the coconut sugar and cinnamon mixture. Photo Oct 30, 5 39 58 PMPhoto Oct 30, 5 41 41 PM
