Spice cake on plate on table.

SPICE CAKE (FP)

1 Tablespoon oat fiber
1 Tablespoon coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Glucomannan
2 Tablespoons Truvia
Dash sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves (or less if you don’t like a strong cloves taste)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon unsweetened almond milk
1/3 cup egg whites

In a small bowl, mix the dry ingredients first, then add the liquid ingredients. Mix well until all lumps are gone.

Transfer batter to two small ramakens (I use 6 oz. ones) and cook in microwave for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes OR bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.

Top both cakes with sweetened 0% Greek yogurt or your choice of other toppings. Just remember if you use a topping that has more fat in it, then this Fuel Pull might turn into an S!

This Spice Cake can be eaten for dessert OR for breakfast (like I do!). Enjoy!

  1. Hello Sheri, I am a THM nubbie. I've only made the skinny chocolate for deserts so far. Today i really wanted a FP snack to go with my coffee and tried your spice cake without very high expectations... It was great! Had it "naked' as is and it was delicious! thanks so much!
  2. OK, I'm getting ready to make this. There is no mention of spraying the Ramkin with nonstick spray. Is it assumed that we should?
    1. Hi Dee, Many times I don't spray my ramekins at all. I then use a fork to loosen the sides and bottom before taking out. Try without and see how it goes. The worse thing that can happen is that the cake will come apart a bit. But it will still be yummy!
  3. Normally, I'm chocolate only for dessert. Somehow this appealed to me today. Wow! I loved this! I didn't have the six ounce ramekins, just a 14oz one. I baked the whole thing for 1 1/2 min. It came out perfect. Thanks for this recipe!
      1. I'm one of those odd people who are not chocoholics. Love this. I'll try the others too! Thank you again!
  4. I don't have any oat fiber. Would I be able to replace the THM baking blend for the oat fiber, coconut flour , and the gluccie?
  5. I am still trying to understand FP's. Coud I do some fat free cream cheese over these?
  6. I'm new to the THM plan and I have a silly question. This makes 2 'cakes'. Is this one serving or should it be two servings? I just don't want to eat both of them if I'm only supposed to have one. :) Thank you and thanks so much for all the great info and recipes.
    1. Hi Melonie! It is not a silly questions :)! It does make two cakes, but it is one serving so you can eat both if you want! You can also bake the batter in a larger bowl to make one big cake, but I just found they cook better divided up into two smaller ramekins. Enjoy!
  7. Hi Sheri, what does the glucomannan do in this recipe? I cannot eat it. What will happen to the recipe if I leave it out, or is there another option? Thank you!
    1. Hi Maggie, Just leave the gluccie out then. It just helps the gluten free recipes stick together better, but I think others have left it out and it has been fine. Give it a try! I hope you enjoy the recipe :)!
      1. Thank you Sheri! I am also allergic to egg, if I use a flax egg, will it still be an FP? So hard to figure out baking w/restrictions! I appreciate your help.
        1. It would probably depend on how much fat is in the flax. It tends to be higher in fat, so it may move it more into an S. Just check the fat and if it stays under the 5g then it is still FP!
  8. Do all of you FP recipes for the cake have the same amount of calories? I saw where the chocolate had calorIes posted, but not the others.
    1. Hi Breanna, I just didn't figure the calories for all of the FP cakes. I know alot of people find places online to plug the recipes into to find out the calories. But with the THM way of eating, I am not overly concerned with calories anyway. I hope that helps!
  9. Do you no how many carbs this would be per serving? My Father in Law has to strictly watch his carb intake (dealing with cancer)... and we hope to have him join us in a Birthday celebration - but don't want to offer something without knowing how many carbs he'd be looking at. Thanks!!
    1. Hi Devon, I ran the ingredients and it looks like this recipe is under 5 g. carbs. Does that help?
  10. Sheri., I hope you don't mind that I made some tweaks to make this a savory muffin/ bread type thing. ;). I love the texture of this cake but wanted something savory for breakfast this morning so I changed the sweetener to 1 tsp, added a little less than 1/4 c cheese ( shredded sharp cheddar ) and about 1 tsp of Badia complete seasoning. I did extend cooking time because of the extra moistened of the cheese so I microwaved it for 1 min 45 seconds. With a slice of Paton and cup of tea it was perfect. I know I changed it to an S with my tweaks but that's ok ;). Once again. I LOVE the texture of this cake!
    1. Hi Desirae, The glucomannan helps with the consistency of the cake since it is gluten free, but I think it would work fine without it. It may be a bit more crumbly, but other than that I bet it would work. Give it a try!
    1. Hi Sylvia, You sure can have some bacon and eggs with this, but that would make it an S meal. Enjoy!
  11. Have you ever made these in a bigger batch and baked them in a muffin pan in the oven? These are so delicious, but I need something that is made ahead and portable this weekend.
    1. Hi Kimberly! I haven't done this yet, but I don't know why it wouldn't work. Just multiply the recipe by the number of muffins you want to make (depending on the size of your muffins) and bake them at 400 for 20-25 minutes. Let me know how it goes!
  12. Ok. Thanks. Where can you buy oat fiber. Is it only able to be bought at health food stores?
    1. Hi Steffani, You can buy oat fiber at netrition.com here: https://www6.netrition.com/lifesource_oat_fiber_page.html This is the cheapest I could find anywhere. Just buy several bags so you can get free shipping. Store them in the freezer for long storage. Hope that helps!
  13. I don't have any oat fiber. Where can tou buy that? Is there something else that can be used instead?
    1. If you want to keep this dessert a FP, then you pretty much have to use oat fiber. If you don't mind it being an S dessert, you could probably use almond flour or flax meal instead. Hope that helps!
  14. Sheri, I just made this for breakfast this morning and my oh my... it was delicious! I even accidentally over baked it a little, next time I will have to pull it out sooner. Thank you so much for the recipe.
    1. Hi Cher! I'm so glad you liked the Spice Cake! I love the smell in the house when I make it. Tastes and smells like fall! Love it!
  15. if you eat it for breakfast, do you eat anything else with it? i'm still trying to figure out the thm method.....
    1. Hi Joyce! If you want to keep it a FP breakfast, I wouldn't have anything else with it, except maybe a cup of coffee :). If you want to make your breakfast an S breakfast, you could have an egg along with it. Or smother some butter on it. If you want to make your breakfast an E breakfast, have a small apple with it. I hope that helps!
  16. Oh my gosh! Sheri I lobe you :) This is one of THE best recipes. Love the flavors and the texture!
    1. Oh thank you...SO glad you liked it! Next time I make it I am going for some cream cheese frosting..oh yum!
      1. Hi Sheri, I just tried the lemon one for the first time. This was fantastic!! Thank you so much for this lovely FP treat!
    1. You are so funny :)! Thank YOU for featuring my Pumpkin Pie Cake this week too! Have a great week.
