This is a very American influenced cake that makes me want cooler temperatures! There’s nothing better than snuggling up at home with a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate and a slice of a big, spicy cake. On a soft sofa, it’s even better. The cooking alone makes your mouth water. The whole house is enveloped in a sweet scent of cinnamon and ginger. It’s rich, for sure, but this cake is meant to be shared with friends…

Cake recipe for a 22cm square pan:
Oatmeal spice crumble :
  • 110g of flour
  • 30g of coarsely ground oatmeal
  • 90g of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 100g of semi-salted butter

Cake batter:
  • 125g of whole cane sugar
  • 90g of powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 250g of heavy cream
  • 95g rapeseed oil
  • 260g of flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate
  • 170g of macadamia nuts
Prepare the oatmeal and spice crumble. Place the flour, oats, sugar and spices in a bowl or in the bowl of your food processor.

Add the butter cut into pieces.

Mix with the sheet or with your fingertips to incorporate it well. 

You must have a homogeneous paste. Set aside.

For the dough, in the same bowl (cleaned quickly), pour the sugars, eggs, cream and oil. 

Mix to a smooth cream. 

Mix flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

Pour it into the dough.

Mix well to obtain a smooth paste.

Pour half of it into the parchment paper-lined pan.

Put half of the crumble batter broken into pieces.

Pour the remaining batter on top, followed by the macadamia nuts and the remaining crumble batter.

Bake at 170°C for 45 minutes.

Let cool before cutting into wedges for a comforting snack!
