Tahini Tea Cake

Tahini Tea Cake

Cakes are so versatile. They are also great to eat mid morning when you feel like a cup of something warm and a nibble on something. I was baking a cake and decided to add some tahini into my cake mixture.

Tahini Tea Cake

March 10, 2017


  • 180g self raising flour (I used gluten free)
  • 80g spelt flour
  • 1 packet unsalted butter
  • 70g coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder (I used gluten free)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 packet dried figs
  • 1 grated zucchini
  • Zest of one orange
  • Two tablespoons Tahini
  • 200g blanched peanuts
  • Step 1 Pre-heat the oven at 160C fan assisted. Beat your butter and sugar until nice and fluffy. Beat your eggs in a bowl and start adding them to the mixture and keep mixing, add your flours and spice.
  • Step 2 Chop up the dried figs and add them to the mixture. Place peanuts in a bag and break them into smaller pieces (I do this by beating them with a rolling pin) and add them to your mixture. Add the zest of the orange and the grated zucchini. I used the skin of the zucchini and put the rest away to use in another dish. Add the tahini and mix all together. The smell is wonderful.
  • Step 3 Line a loaf tin with tracing paper and place in the oven at 160 degrees for around 35 minutes.
