Lemon Blackberry Cake


  • 2 cup Cara’s gluten-free flour blend (see below for link to recipe)
  • 4 Tbsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (I used almond, unsweetened)
  • 1 lemon's zest
  • 1 cup fresh blackberry
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 0.75 cup sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix non-dairy milk and vinegar together and allow to sit for 5-7 minutes to sour.
  3. Combine all of the dry ingredients together (minus the blackberries and zest). Whisk well.
  4. Pour oil into soured non-dairy milk and pour into dry ingredients.
  5. Fold in berries and lemon zest.
  6. Pour into desired pan/dish and top with pistachio cardamom sugar topping (recipe below).
  7. Bake 22-25 minutes or until knife is clean when inserted in the middle (I have a really old oven that bakes things quicker than newer ovens).

  • 0.33 cup pistachios, dry roasted, unsalted, roughly chopped
  • 0.25 cup sugar

  3. Add pistachios.
